Programme Educational Objectives


Bachelor of Engineering (Aerospace Engineering)

In line with the Vision and Mission of the University and the School, the BEng (Aerospace Engineering) programme is formulated with the following objectives:

(i)​ ​Produce graduates with a sound and comprehensive foundation in aerospace engineering.
(ii)​ ​Develop communication skills and independent, creative and critical thinking skills through group design projects and "technopreneurship" activities.
​(iii) ​Ensure industrial and technical relevance of the programme through regular exposure to aerospace industry and seeking their feedback.
​(iv) ​Provide students with opportunities to read courses in business and management to prepare them to take on leadership and managerial roles.
​(v) Instil the importance of professional ethics, societal and moral responsibility, and engage in life-long learning.

Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering)

In line with the Vision and Mission of the University and the School, the BEng (Mechanical Engineering) programme is formulated with the following objectives:

(i)​ Produce graduates with the fundamental knowledge and skills for the practice of mechanical engineering in a broad range of industries.
(ii)​ ​Provide students with a broad and flexible curriculum with specialized electives that tailor to students’ career goals and to inspire them to pursue specialized and graduate studies.
​(iii) Develop students’ communication, practical and innovative skills through group design, project work, and “technopreneurship” activities.
​(iv) Provide students with opportunities to read courses in business and management so that they will be equipped to take on leadership and managerial roles.
​(v) Promote student's awareness of professional ethics, societal and moral responsibility, and the need to engage in life-long learning.

Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) with specialization in Design

The Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) with specialization in Design degree programme is comparable to the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) degree programme, but with a greater emphasis on product and engineering design. This programme aims to train a select group of students to be mechanical engineers competent in the field of design. This programme has seven Programme Educational Objectives. The first five Programme Educational Objectives are identical to the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering). In addition to the five Programme Educational Objectives listed above, this programme is formulated to:

  • Develop skills and knowledge in design specifically in the areas of product design, computer-aided design, concurrent design and engineering, design for quality and reliability, human factors in design and management of product development
  • Provide additional training in problem solving and lateral thinking techniques required for innovation and creativity

Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) with specialization in Mechatronics

Like the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) with specialization in Design degree programme, this programme is comparable to the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) degree programme, but with a greater emphasis on Mechatronics. This programme aims to train a select group of students to be mechanical engineers with knowledge in microcomputers and electronic interfacing.

This programme has seven Programme Educational Objectives. The first five Programme Educational Objectives are identical to the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering). In addition to the five Programme Educational Objectives listed above, this programme is formulated to:

  • Provide skills and knowledge in mechatronics specifically in the areas of microcomputers, electronics interfacing, control and computing technology for mechanical engineer
  • Develop students’ practical and innovative skills in integrating various mechatronics elements to enhance mechanical system functions through group design and project work
