Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering With Honours

Master complex mechanical engineering systems

 

Mechanical engineers work with advanced technology across a wide range of specialisations.

At UOW Malaysia KDU, the Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with Honours programme enables students to apply the principles of physics and material science to design, produce and operate a wide variety of equipment and systems. Our approach is holistic learning to ensure graduates are well equipped with a solid platform for adaptation to ever-changing developments in science and technology, thus meeting the rigorous demands of global industries.

Students will gain various opportunities for hands-on training to hone their technical skills and knowledge through various subjects, to be completed in our state-of-the-art laboratories.

Our Design Centric Curriculum also ensures that students will be able to apply their analytical and design skills through creative problem-solving in industry projects.

This programme also allows students to choose an area of focus through technical electives:

  • Mechanical
  • Material

BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN ACADEMIC AND INDUSTRY DESIGN-CENTRIC CURRICULUM
Hands-on learning and real-world experience are crucial in ensuring our students, as future engineers, stay current and remain relevant when they begin their career. Actively engaging industry experts and exposing students to real-life practices, as well as the development of real-life projects are some of the ways we ensure our students set themselves apart and are more grounded from their exposure to the different challenges faced in the industry. Engineering courses at UOW Malaysia KDU emphasize on Design-Centric Curriculum (DCC), with Design Thinking as the grounding principle of teaching and learning. Students are required to engage in design assignments, Capstone projects and Problem-Based Learning (PBL) to develop their skills in design, complex problem-solving, project management, teamwork, lifelong learning and complex communication.

 

COMPETITIVE SYLLABUS TO ENHANCE ENGINEERING KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS.

Industry Advisory Panel:

  • Our Industry Advisory Panel is made up of various industry professionals and engineers, who provide valuable industry insights to enhance our curriculum and students’ learning. Panel members include those from ABB Malaysia, ProvenPac and YTL Construction, just to name a few.

Final Year Project Collaboration :
