International Degree Pathways



Mechanical Engineering is concerned with the designing, manufacturing and analysis of various types of machines and mechanical systems. Individuals who are keen to enhance their problem-solving skills and possess a strong interest in mathematics and physics have the potential to be nurtured as professional Mechanical Engineers who strive to improve the quality of life for the community and are armed with strong social awareness.
 
At UCSI University, the programme is designed to groom future Mechanical Engineers who are team players, are innovative in solving complex problems and possess excellent communication skills. The course starts with a basic foundation in mathematics and physics, and towards the end of the programme, strong emphasis is placed on developing the students’ abilities in designing mechanical components and systems, as well as solving complex engineering problems by applying various techniques and computational methods. The programme offers sufficient depth and breadth of study through a variety of courses such as thermodynamics, heat transfer, air-conditioning systems, power plant technology and internal combustion engines, among others. Apart from that, students are exposed to the latest advances in engineering technologies from time to time, in order to inculcate lifelong learning habits.

To foster competitiveness among graduates, students are required to undergo industrial training under UCSI University’s Co-operative Training Placement Scheme at the end of their 2nd and 3rd academic years. This allows students to be exposed to and prepare themselves for a real-life working environment. Students are required to undertake a research and development project in their final year of study.

Accreditation

All of UCSI University’s engineering degree programmes comply with the latest requirements for accreditation by the Malaysian Engineering Accreditation Council, which fulfils the international requirements drafted in the Washington Accord.

Today’s Mechanical Engineers are involved with all forms of energy utilisation and conversion, machines, manufacturing materials and processes, as well as engines. The energy crisis has brought to focus a need for new sources of energy. Thus, Mechanical Engineers actively research solar, geothermal and wind energy sources, along with other relevant related research activities to increase efforts in producing electricity from fossil fuels, and hydroelectric and nuclear sources. Mechanical Engineers are also involved in designing and developing machines and mechanisms used in all forms of manufacturing and transportation.

Graduates of this Mechanical Engineering course will find career opportunities in the fields of energy technology, combustion, acoustics, noise and vibration control, manufacturing processes, metallurgical processes, machine design, automated machinery and robotics, quality management, plant layouts, and process simulation, among others.
