Teaching Areas

Since early times, mechanical engineers have been responsible for the design, analysis, manufacture and maintenance of mechanical systems such as automobiles, ships, airplanes, heating and cooling systems, industrial equipment and machineries, etc. Over the past few decades, the accelerated growth in scientific knowledge and technology has brought about a significant change in mechanical engineering, both in its education and practice as a profession. For instance, with the rapid advances in computer technology, mechanical engineers are now extensively using computer aided engineering (CAE) tools to undertake design and analysis. To keep pace with the technological advancements, our mechanical engineering degree curricula are structured to bring students quickly to the frontier of knowledge in a wide range of fascinating fields. Our graduates are also imparted with an awareness of the impact of engineering developments on society, professional ethics and the ability to communicate and cooperate with personnel in other disciplines. As a matter of fact, many of our graduates are now assuming very senior technical and managerial positions in a great variety of industries including utility services, building services, manufacturing and environmental consultancy services.
