The new mechanical engineering curriculum is designed to equip its graduates for the knowledge-based economy. Strong foundations in key mechanical engineering concepts are introduced in their early years. Complementing it are courses with analytical, experimental and practical problem-solving skills to give our students an all-rounded training experience. The broader coverage of the engineering fundamentals, with specialisation through electives allow graduates to seek employment in a variety of sectors of the economy.
An overview of the 4-year curriculum is illustrated below:
|Year 1||Year 2||Year 3||Year 4|
* Students who fail Qualifying English Test (QET) should read English Proficiency (HW0001) in their Year 1, Semester 1.
Major Prescribed Electives
Students are allowed to choose their Major Prescribed Electives from any 2 specialisation groups. Students who have read at least three (3) courses from one specialisation would be deemed to have specialised.
