The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering, KDU offers two bachelor’s degree programmes, namely, BScEngHons in Mechanical Engineering and BScEngHons in Mechatronic Engineering. These four-year undergraduate programmes aim to impart competencies in courses related to Design, Manufacturing, Control Systems, and Information Technology in order to produce graduates who are well equipped to become competent Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineers.The department is playing a dynamic role in the faculty. The presence of qualified panel of lecturers with a wide range of expertise, their academic background, teaching experiences, research capabilities, and industrial exposure make a significant contribution to the overall strength of the department. The department possesses well-equipped laboratories and implements its well-designed curricula in lectures and practical sessions. The department also organises industrial visits and guest lectures, providing further opportunities for the enhancement and consolidation of students’ knowledge. The student intake is expanded by admitting Officers of the Tri-Services and Day Scholars, both local and international. The department strives to maintain the highest standards of education for the Officers from the Tri-Services, Officer Cadets, and Day Scholars to be readily employable in the industry.Why choose Mechanical Engineering or Mechatronic Engineering?Mechanical Engineers build the world around us. From the tiniest nanotechnology through cars and buildings to aeroplanes and space stations, mechanical engineers are responsible for the design and development of many things. Studying mechanical engineering is a combination of science, mathematics, and computing. The field of mechanical engineering touches virtually every aspect of modern life, including the human body, a highly complex machine. A career in mechanical engineering allows you to build a better future for yourself and the world. Mechanical engineers design and build solutions to a range of problems, improving efficiency across a wide range of industries. By studying mechanical engineering, students can look forward to good job prospects, high salaries, and varied work. Mechanical engineers are always in demand for jobs such as Aerospace engineers, Automotive engineers, Control and Instrumentation engineers, Maintenance engineers, Nuclear engineers, etc.Mechatronic is an emerging field that blends mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science to demonstrate the close integration of these disciplines in product design. The Mechatronic Engineering degree programme offers both theory and practical work in the areas of Automation, Control, Robotics, Engineering design, and applications. The knowledge and skills acquired will be useful to deal with the professional and career development goals of graduates in the future. The designed curriculum also offers a vast area of opportunities for future studies and research as a graduate and even beyond.
