Notes:

  1. MA48xx courses provide more in-depth knowledge. These are classified as final year courses.
  2. The semester in which a MA48xx course offered is subject to change.
  3. A MA48xx course may be cancelled when there is an insufficient number of students or for other reasons.
  4. Specialisation is optional. Only 1 specialisation will be reflected on the transcript.

SPECIALISATION IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

AERO students will have to read the following courses under the specified course types to fulfil the specialisation:

COURSE TYPE​COURSE CODE AND TITLE
Core+MA3704 Aircraft Electrical Devices
Broadening & Deepening Electives+MA2002 Theory of Mechanism
Broadening & Deepening Electives+MA2009 Introduction to Electrical Circuits & Electronic Devices
Broadening & Deepening Electives+MA3001 Machine Element Design
Broadening & Deepening Electives+
MA4002 Fluid Dynamics 
​​+All courses must be graded - S/U option cannot be used.​


This new specialisation will enable graduates to apply for registration as Professional Engineers, if other requirements (4 years of relevant practical experience in engineering, FEE & PPEE examinations, interview) are also fulfilled. Please see the following extract:

The Professional Engineers Board registers professional engineers in the branches of civil, electrical mechanical and chemical engineering. A person applying for registration as a professional engineer to the Professional Engineers Board is required to hold an approved degree or qualification listed in the  Professional Engineers (Approved Qualifications) Notification / Amendment Notification 2016 and acquired relevant practical experience.  The applicant is required to sit and pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination and the Practice of Professional Engineering Examination or the oral examination (for a person previously registered as a professional engineer or is an experienced applicant). In addition, the applicant is required to attend a professional interview.

Further details on Professional Engineer registration from PEB can be found here.
