Undergraduate (Part-Time)


Programme Structure

The new mechanical engineering curriculum is designed to equip its graduates for the knowledge-based economy. Strong foundations in key mechanical engineering concepts are introduced in their early years. Complementing it are courses with analytical, experimental and practical problem-solving skills to give our students an all-rounded training experience. The broader coverage of the engineering fundamentals, with specialisation through electives allow graduates to seek employment in a variety of sectors of the economy.

An overview of the 4-year curriculum is illustrated below:
