Undergraduate Program

In accordance with the vision and mission statements and Washington Accord of the International Engineering Alliance (IEA) requirement, the academic program is designed to deliver the Bachelor of the Science of Engineering Honors Degree (BSc Eng (Hons)) in the field of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering.


Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

Graduates of the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering will be able to do the following within the first few years after graduation:

  1. Practice mechanical and manufacturing engineering associated with their professional position, both independently and in a team environment.

  2. Manage multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary projects and research with significant, technical, legal, ethical, political, social, environmental, and economic considerations using a broad systems perspective.

  3. Work efficiently with others in their community, through; effective communication both in oral and in writing; public relationship and leadership skills.

  4. Demonstrate commitment and progress in lifelong learning and professional development.

Programme Structure

Approximately 225 undergraduates are admitted to the Faculty of Engineering annually through the University Grants Commission (UGC) based on merits of the General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (G.C.E. (A/L)) Examination. The freshmen initially go through an orientation called the Developmental Programme for an 8-10 weeks period. At the end, they start a common core course at the Semester 1 and Semester 2 of the engineering programme. At the beginning of the 3rd semester the students are streamed into the specializations based on their preference, performance and the capacity of the respective departments.
