Information for Students on a Mechanical Engineering Specialisation

There is an academic coordinator for each specialisation. Please consult the coordinator if you have questions about the specialisation.

Aeronautical Engineering A/Prof Teo Chiang Juay
Energy and Sustainability A/Prof Ernest Chua Kian Jon
Offshore Oil & Gas Technology A/Prof Loh Wai Lam



Other Information for Students in ME Specialisations

You are responsible for meeting the academic requirements of the specialisation applicable to your cohort. You may begin to read the modules for your specialisation from the 6th semester.

The modules are usually offered in the semester indicated. But please check at the start of the year in case there are changes.

All the ME technical elective modules (modules with MEXXXX code) are worth 4 MCs. Students should check the number of MCs for the non-ME specialisation modules through the host department.

You may withdraw from a specialisation before the start of the *8th Semester by writing in to the specialisation coordinator concerned.

*Refers to the 8th Semester of your cohort.
