Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers analyse and develop technical systems that involve motion. They help society to harness the energy and forces that exist in nature. The conception, design, manufacturing, maintenance and management of systems, ranging from micromechanical devices through to massive power generating turbines, are all within the scope of mechanical engineering.

Modern air and ground transport systems, and thermal power generation are a few key examples of mechanical engineering accomplishments.
