What will I learn?


The First City UC Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with Honours emphasizes in developing students with broad range of skills and knowledge to fulfill the requirements of a mechanical engineer. It ranges from materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation, design, manufacturing and other specialize areas. It also emphasizes on strengthening students’ analytical and problem solving skills. Many of the modules in this programme will include mini-projects and students will work in groups to produce a solution to a complex engineering problem.

Furthermore, the programme aims to impart to students the interpersonal and engineering management skills such as Operations and Quality Management, Engineering Practice and Communication Skills, Professional Practice, and Project Management and Product Development. This cross-disciplinary knowledge allows an engineer to turn a good idea and innovation into a marketable quality product.
