Mechanical engineers are problem-solvers, designers, and creators who conceive and build products and technologies to meet human needs.

They design and develop everything from a bicycle to space shuttles. In fact, if it moves, you will find mechanical engineering at the heart of its design. Engineers in this area can recognize emerging issues, develop novel solutions, and create and test prototypes of their designs.


The mechanical Engineering curriculum provides a strong fundamental background in the engineering sciences, mathematics, materials, mechanisms, kinematics, thermal-fluid engineering, energy conversion, vibrations and controls, mechatronics, and mechanical design. This background is strengthened with instructional laboratories with hands-on experience and design courses. In the senior years, students can choose specialisms within the program in design engineering, thermal engineering, Automation & Robotics, Manufacturing, and computer-aided design.

The new curriculum also considers information technology’s impact on the discipline and the emergence of industry-4.0 as a future growth area by introducing courses like machine learning, robotics, and data analytics. The coursework is complemented with interventions to sharpen or develop soft skills like communication, teamwork, and critical thinking, which are essential for a successful career. From the first to the final year, students have opportunities to carry out several projects in which student teams, working with faculty/industry mentors, put their knowledge to work on a real-world issue to find innovative solutions to engineering problems. The program also offers the option of doing an internship with industry or research labs.
