What will I learn?

Mechanical engineering deals with anything that moves including the human body.

Mechanical engineers learn about materials, statics and dynamics, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, control engineering, industrial engineering, instrumentation and design. It also covers designing and manufacturing everything from small individual parts to large systems such as airplanes and spacecraft.

Mechanical engineering is perhaps the broadest and most diverse engineering discipline as it will require you to learn skills for everything that is made.

Is this programme for me?

  • Do you like physics and mathematics?
  • Are you always curious about how things work?
  • Do you like to dismantle things to see what’s inside and put them back together?
  • Do you see yourself as an inventor?
  • Do you like to build something new?
  • Do you want to be able to contribute and make a difference to the world?

If you have these characteristics, then this programme may suit you.

What will I learn?

This programme involves the principles of engineering such as statics, materials science, design and analysis of mechanical parts and systems.

This field also requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, structural analysis, electrical and electronic system.

Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided design, and product lifecycle management to design and analyse manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transportation systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and others.

What should I expect?

Solid foundation in mathematics, physics and chemistry is required for a student to acquire knowledge and skills effectively in his/her learning process in this programme.

Graduates of this programme will be capable of performing engineering tasks in the manufacturing or production sectors, power generation, oil and gas sectors, transportation (road, train, naval, aircraft), building services and construction industries.


This programme is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) and recognized by the Malaysian Government. EAC is a delegated body by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) as the only recognized accrediting body for engineering degree programmes offered in Malaysia.

This degree is also internationally recognised under the Washington Accord, a multi-national agreement which recognises the substantial equivalency of engineering degree programmes accredited by the responsible bodies in each of the current signatory countries.


Once you graduate, you can register yourselves with the Board of Engineers Malaysia to recognise you as a graduate engineer.

Mechanical engineering graduates are sought by employers in almost all sectors of the engineering industry.
