Code: E201

Intake: 2018 onwards

Mode of study: Full-time

The programme is designed to provide advance knowledge in mechanical engineering with sound engineering principles, research and communication skill for solving real life problems related to mechanical engineering.

Admission Requirements 

General

A minimum of a Lower Second Class Honours Bachelor’s degree, or equivalent, in Mechanical Engineering or related discipline, recognised by the Senate of UTB.

AND

At least a credit or equivalent in English Language GCE O-level or an IELTS score of 6.0 or a TOEFL minimum overall score of 550 or its equivalent. The English Language requirements may be waived where qualifying studies in Higher Education were in the medium of English Language.

Programme Intended Learning Outcomes

The program intended learning outcomes (PILO) for the master’s programme are tailored to enhance students’ abilities developed in an undergraduate programme. Hence, graduates from this programme will be able to:

Science and Mathematics

PILO 1:

Demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of scientific principles in specialist areas relevant to mechanical engineering, and the ability to evaluate them critically and to apply them effectively to current problems.

Engineering Analysis

PILO 2:

Perform quantitative and qualitative skills in the use of data gathering methods and data analysis techniques to investigate new and emerging technologies to conduct research and solve problems.

Design

PILO 3:

Use their knowledge, understanding and skills to work with incomplete or uncertain information and quantify the effect on their design.

PILO 4:

Generate an innovative design for products, systems, components, or processes by applying and adapting their knowledge and comprehensive understanding of design processes and methodologies.

 

Engineering Practice

PILO 5:

Demonstrate advanced level knowledge and understanding of a wide range of engineering materials and components.

PILO 6:

Demonstrate a thorough understanding of current practice and its limitations, and ability to apply these techniques.

 

Economic, Legal, Social, Ethical and Environmental

PILO 7:

Demonstrate awareness of ethical courses of action in engineering, considering of the commercial and social contexts.

PILO 8:

Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of management and business practices, their limitations and of relevant regulatory requirements in the context of mechanical engineering.

 

General Skills

PILO 9:

Apply their skills in problem solving, communication, information retrieval, working with others, and the effective use of general IT facilities.
