BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering


 
Mechanical engineers who are graduating from the SEGi BEng (Hons) of Mechanical engineering will be able to handle technological and societal challenges awaiting for them in the field of mechanical engineering. The first year of the program aims to provide mathematical and scientific knowledge and yet teaching the essentials of mechanical engineering. During this year, students build the basic knowledge and skills in the field; apart from their academic backgrounds therefore exam results from this year don’t contribute to their final grades.
 
The second year of the academic program, students learn the fundamentals of mechanical engineering and apply to real engineering components. Through the other years students develop by the two mathematics modules and also develop further skills now that they concentrate on modeling and computational aspects.
 
 
In the third year of the program create projects by designing and researching in the area of their interest as they continue learning about more advanced mechanical subjects.
 
The fourth year of the problem students plan for their final projects and study courses that are irrelevant to the field as elective courses such as environmental issues and management that will help a graduate a lot in his/her professional life. This program has been approved by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC).


Programme Objectives:
The objectives of this programme are to produce graduates who are:
  1. Are employable in the global manufacturing industry and other related fields of the Mechanical Engineering.
  2. Pursues post-graduate qualifications to satisfy a passion for research and life-long learning.
  3. Participates in continuous professional improvement leading to professional licensure.
 
Programme Learning Outcomes:
Graduates are expected to demonstrate the following outcomes:
  1. Engineering Knowledge – Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem Analysis – Identify and analyse complex engineering problems, research literature and formulate substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/Development of Solutions – Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Investigation – Conduct investigation into complex problems using research based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
  5. Modern Tool Usage – Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The Engineer and Society – Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice.
  7. Environment and Sustainability – Understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and a need for sustainable development.
  8. Ethics – Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
  9. Communication – Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  10. Individual and Team Work – Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings.
  11. Life-long Learning – Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
  12. Project Management and Finance – Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments
