The Mechanical Engineering programme comprises the design and development of machinery, ranging from simple mechanisms to more complex machines as well as the processes involved in operating and maintaining them. Mechanical Engineers use an understanding of core concepts such as kinetics and thermodynamics (application of heat and mechanical power) to create a wide variety of machines and analyse mechanical processes to suit and sustain manufacturing and operating goals of an organisation.
