Mode of Study : Full Time (Yes) | Part Time (No)

  • A 4-year study programme. 8 semesters, 148 credit hours.
  • Well-balanced between theories and experiments.
  • Provides a strong base in Mechanical Engineering.
  • Compulsory Industrial Training attachment.
  • Graduates can work as Mechanical Engineers in broad and exciting fields.


This syllabus has been designed to meet the requirements of professional bodies and industries while giving students the competitive edge. Emphasis is on the application of knowledge through teamwork, case studies, simulations and real life projects.


The Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Hons) programme provides a strong base in Mechanical Engineering with a well-established and balance curriculum that combines both theory and experiments during the four years of study. The curriculum consists of a good mix of general courses as well as core Mechanical Engineering courses.

The programme also contains a compulsory Industrial Training attachment after semester 6 for a period of not less than 12 weeks. The idea of this attachment is to enable you to gain first-hand experience in industry as well as an insight to how theories are put into practice in real engineering situations. This short attachment in industry is beneficial as it provides the intellectual challenge to you especially in the final year and when carrying out your final year project.

148 credit hours of subjects are being taught in 8 semesters. This Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Hons) programme can be completed in 4 years.
