BSc Engineering (Hons)

in Mechanical Engineering (Mechatronics Specialisation)

With strong focus on imparting theoretical knowledge and competency based education, the BSc Engineering (Hons) degree in Mechanical Engineering (Mechatronics Specialization) gives students a hands on experience in real life assignments, group projects and co-curricular activities. The students are also placed for 6 months internship to give a hands on experience of how engineering is practiced in the industry.

One of the more recent developments in engineering, combining basic
mechanical engineering problem-solving and design skills.

Incorporates the expertise of digital electronics and computer systems to develop modern products or to advance industrial systems through automation and use of robotics.

Offers opportunities to develop a range of technical skills in digital electronics, drive technologies, mechanics and software.
