Program Educational Objectives
- Prepare graduates to have the knowledge and competency for careers in and related to mechanical engineering.
- Prepare graduates to become leaders in fields related to mechanical engineering.
- Prepare graduates to pursue higher education in engineering or other professional fields.
Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of the BEng (Mechanical Engineering) program, the students will be able to:
- apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering to the solution of complex engineering problems;
- design and conduct experiments, analyse, interpret data and synthesise valid conclusions;
- design a system, component, or process, and synthesise solutions to achieve desired needs;
- identify, formulate, research through relevant literature review, and solve engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions;
- use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice with appropriate considerations for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental constraints;
- communicate effectively;
- recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in life-long learning;
- understand the impact of engineering solutions in a societal context and to be able to respond effectively to the needs for sustainable development;
- function effectively within multi-disciplinary teams and understand the fundamental precepts of effective project management; and
- understand professional, ethical and moral responsibility.
Accreditation is a continuous improvement process that uses a series of assessment tools to measure how well the curriculum is achieving its program educational objectives. The Mechanical Engineering curriculum is fully accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB) in Singapore, and is recognized by the signatories of the Washington Accord.
