Mechanical engineering has been described as the ‘mother of all engineering’, thanks to its all-encompassing nature. Over the years, the study of mechanical engineering has grown from producing basic, functional products, to designing advanced, technology-based items that are smaller, smarter, and greener than ever before.

The specialisations within MAE reflect the diverse nature of the discipline, and are testament to MAE’s comprehensive approach to mechanical engineering teaching and researching. Additionally, our curriculum is constantly updated to match various industries’ evolving trends, so NTU MAE graduates always have the most modern, relevant, and immediately applicable knowledge at their fingertips. 

The NTU Education Curriculum provides depth (Core & major Prescribe Electives) and breadth (GER-Core, GER-Prescribe Electives and GER-Unrestricted Electives) to cater to the educational needs of all students.

The BRC curriculum is designed to achieve the following student learning outcomes:

  • Prepare students for successful careers and the ability to engage in life-long learning
  • Train students to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering to the solution of engineering problems
  • Develop students’ skills in engineering design process, including the ability to formulate problems, to think creatively, to communicate effectively, to synthesize solutions to achieve desired needs
  • Enable students to work collaboratively in a team and understand the fundamentals of project management
  • Teach students to conduct experiments and the ability to analyse, interpret experimental data to arrive at valid conclusions
  • Impart in our students an understanding of their professional and ethical responsibilities, and the impact of engineering solutions in a societal context.

One key objective of the BRC Curriculum is to allow undergraduates to pursue courses that lie outside of their major concentration. These include courses offered by other Schools. 

GCE ‘A’ level

H2 level pass in Mathematics and Physics/Chemistry/Biology. Pass in Physics at ‘O’ Level is only applicable to applicants who have not read Physics at H2 Level. Students with exemplary academic records may be granted course exemptions.

Local polytechnic diploma

Polytechnic graduates with relevant diplomas in engineering will be considered for direct entry into second year. Students with exemplary academic records may be granted course exemptions.

International Baccalaureate (IB) / NUS High School diploma

Mathematics and Physics/Chemistry/Biology at Higher level. Pass in Physics at Standard Level is only applicable to applicants who have not read Physics at Higher Level.
