Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical), University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur

Mechanical engineering is often regarded as the broadest engineering discipline. Whenever there are mechanical equipment and systems, from micro-mechanical machines through to massive power generating turbines, they are all enclosed in the discipline.

The programme offers excellent facilities for teaching and research. It also has state of the art laboratories in applied mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solar energy, heat transfer, combustion, tribology, manufacturing, control, heat engines, material science, foundry and metallurgy. The Department has access to the UNIVAC computer at the University Computer Centre as well as common facilities provided by the Faculty such as Workshop, Computers and SuperCray. The programme provides an abundance of microcomputers for research and teaching.
