Master of Professional Engineering (Mechanical Engineering)

Master of Professional Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) by Coursework prepares students to apply advanced knowledge for professional practice, scholarship, and further learning corresponding to the Malaysian Qualifications Framework (MQF) level 7 qualifications.

The Master of Professional Engineering is a 2-year degree where students are equipped with high level technical and theoretical knowledge and skills with an industry focus and international perspective. Students will interact with world-class researchers through a combination of coursework and research-based activities. Completion of this course will allow graduates to also apply for entry into a Doctoral degree.

 

Course Overview

Mechanical engineering involves the movement of solid parts and fluid flows. It is founded on the need to understand, design and manufacture parts, machines, devices and integrated engineering systems, including micro-mechanical actuators, cars, machine tools, aircraft and power-generating turbines. In this major, you will be introduced to intermediate and advanced topics that will enable your career in contemporary mechanical engineering and its future development. During your final-year project, you will have the opportunity to apply advanced knowledge and technologies to research and design challenges in the field.

 

Credits needed to graduate: 400

 

Duration and Availability
