The Department of Engineering offers courses leading to the award of;

  • Diploma in Mechanical Engineering
  • Diploma in Electrical Engineering

These programs are designed to prepare students for professional careers and to further their studies to Bachelor Degree in the related engineering field. The department strives to provide quality education to prepare students for positions in industry, commerce and academic. The comprehensive and innovative content and teaching techniques adopted are designed towards expanding the frontiers of learning and inculcating a probing mind. Students will be challenged to develop into multi-skilled professionals possessing mental, intellectual and emotional fortitude to succeed in life.

 

The curricula, further enhanced with project work, lab experiments and practical training, are designed with inputs from the several reputable sources. The emphasis is towards producing professionals to fulfil the needs of industry and commerce in particular and the nation in general.

 

The two engineering programs provide a strong foundation in respective the engineering field, Electrical Engineering (EE) or Mechanical Engineering (ME) with a well-established balance between theory and experiments during the two and half years of study. The curriculum consists of a good mix of general subjects as well as core engineering subjects. A total of 91 credit hours of subjects being taught in five semesters and on average there are 5 - 6 subjects per semester being taught.

 

The engineering courses begin in the second semester of the first year of studies. For the Mechanical Engineering programme among of the courses are Manufacturing Process, Mechanics - Statics, Thermodynamics, Engineering Graphics, Mechanics of Materials, Mechanical Design and Power Plant Engineering. The programmes are complemented by laboratory works such as Manufacturing Process lab, Mechanics of Materials lab and Instrumentation and Control lab

 

For the Electrical Engineering programme the topics include electrical circuits, electronics, digital logic, introduction to microcontroller, electrical machinery, power electronics and electrical power system. In addition to these topics, students will also be exposed to specialized topics such as engineering graphics & computer application and industrial automation. Laboratory works which include electrical measurement techniques, application of non-linear devices, digital logic design, microcontroller, and electrical machines are intended to reinforce the principles obtained in the classroom.

 

The programme also encompasses a compulsory Industrial Training attachment for a period of not less than 12 weeks. The idea of this attachment is to enable students to gain first-hand experience in industry as well as an insight to how theory are put to practice in the real engineering situations. This short attachment in industry is beneficial as it provides the intellectual challenge to students. ​
