MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT VISION

 

The vision of the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DME) is to attract, prepare, reward and retain outstanding students, faculty and staff.

The DME will be nationally/internationally recognized as having competitive undergraduate and graduate programs. Based on the quality and balance of its programs and research, it will be a department of choice by prospective students, and other stakeholders.

 

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT MISSION

 

 

To provide a high quality, up-to-date and well recognized academic program in Mechanical Engineering emphasizing sound application of scientific and engineering knowledge combined with technical skills.

To prepare students for successful careers and produce graduates, who will become responsible and contributing leaders in industry and government, with the lifelong learning skills necessary to meet society's changing needs and aspirations for technological advancement.

To make students technically competent with excellent managerial and communication skills, while they acquire a solid background to perform diverse engineering functions and life-long learning skills.

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES (PEOs)

The PEOs for the B.Sc. Mechanical Engineering Program are to produce:

 1. Employable graduates with in-depth knowledge and sound understanding of principles of Mechanical Engineering with a quest for lifelong learning.

 2. Graduates demonstrating the capacity to assume social, environmental and ethical responsibility in the national and global perspective.

 3. Graduates who can communicate and manage effectively with those inside and outside of Engineering Community.

 4. Graduates with capability to be effective team members and take a leadership role in research, design, innovation, implementation and operation of Mechanical and related systems.
