Mechanical Engineering is one of the fundamental components that has driven the global economy since the first industrial revolution. The shift to industrial revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) continues to extend the breadth of the mechanical, manufacturing, production and related services into cyber-physical systems through adoption of element of internet and digital data.

The 4-year full time Mechanical Engineering programme in UMS provides the student with the necessary knowledge and skills in theory and application of machinery, thermo-fluids, materials, manufacturing, management, computer aided design (CAD), product design and control. A major input of the programme is the emphasis on laboratory and computer aided product design.

The mission of the Mechanical Engineering programme (HK08/UH6521001) is to provide an education that builds within undergraduates a basic understanding of mechanical engineering principles built on a foundation of physical science, mathematics, computing, and technology.

CAREER PROSPECTS
Mechanical engineers involve in various stages of development, production, and implementation of daily and industrial products or systems, from design, manufacture, to operation management. Graduates of this programme find employment in manufacturing industry, semiconductors, healthcare, agricultural industry, oil and gas, energy, construction, consulting firms, HVAC, mechatronics, marketing, education and related industries.
