Mechanical engineers are involved in the research, development and design of a diverse range of products. Hence, the program aims to equip students with key engineering knowledge and skills which are fundamental to their onward progression to more complex and specialized applications.

Practical design is also an integral part of the program. Industry tie-ups enable students to work on design projects sponsored by companies, giving students an insight into design cycles in commercial enterprises. the prospects for mechanical engineers also remain bright as high-technology industries will continue to be a key engine of growth for the country.
