Area of Study :
Mechanical engineers should be curious about how things are made and work. Mechanical engineering covers the design, analysis, testing, and manufacturing of products that are used in every facet of modern society. Mechanical engineers conceive, plan, design, and direct the production, distribution, and operation of a wide variety of devices, machines, and systems as well as environmental control and materials processing, transportation, and handling. The program enables students to develop the following thoroughly:
- Understanding of mechanical engineering principles and expertise that is uniquely automotive in nature.
- Understanding based on the Mechanical Engineering program.
- Basic engineering principles and including studies in mathematics and the physical sciences.
Later years build upon acquired knowledge and include specialized topics such as automotive safety, alternative fuels, advanced manufacturing, automotive powertrain and vehicle dynamics, automotive combustion technology, automotive suspension and undercarriage, automotive NVH and aerodynamics, automotive electrical and electronic systems, advanced materials and joining, and vehicle emission control. Engineering students are also required to undertake studies in courses designed to assist them develop the communication skills necessary to work effectively.
Career Opportunities :
Careers in the automotive and other high-tech industries.However, being based on a Mechanical Engineering degree, graduates in Automotive Engineering will retain flexibility in the choice of engineering industry for their careers. In most cases, graduates will also be able to work wherever mechanical engineers are employed.
