Diploma in Mechanical Engineering

Equips students with skills needed to conceive, design and produce the moving parts, components and machinery in every aspect of manufacturing.

Engineering Diploma 2.5 Years From RM 34,900

Students are provided with foundation skills needed to conceive and produce the moving parts, components and machinery in every aspect of manufacturing. They will be equipped with broad-based mechanical engineering knowledge in both theoretical and practical aspects. This Diploma in Mechanical Engineering programme covers a comprehensive range of courses in mechanical engineering.


Programme Structure

The Mechanical Engineering Discipline expects its alumni, who after being involved in the industry or academia for at least 4 years,

PEO1 To undertake positions of technical related expertise in mechanical engineering fields
PEO2 To remain committed to professional development

The Mechanical Engineering Discipline has adopted a set of 12 Programme Outcomes (PO), which upon sucessful completion of the programme, graduates will be able to:

  • Knowledge - Apply knowledge of applied mathematics, applied science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation as specified in DK1 to DK4 respectively to wide practical procedures and practices
  • Problem analysis - Identify and analyse well-defined engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using codified methods of analysis specific to their field of activity (DK1 to DK4)
  • Design/development of solutions - Design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the design of systems, components or processes to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations (DK5)
  • Investigation - Conduct investigations of well-defined problems; locate and search relevant codes and catalogues, conduct standard tests and measurements
  • Modern Tool Usage - Apply appropriate techniques, resources and modern engineering and IT tools to well-defined engineering problems, with an awareness of the limitations (DK6)
  • The Engineer and Society - Demonstrate knowledge of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to engineering technician practice and solutions to well-defined engineering problems (DK7)
  • Environment and Sustainability - Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of engineering technician work in the solution of well-defined engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts (DK7)
  • Ethics - Understand and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of technician practice
  • Individual and Team Work - Function effectively as an individual, and as a member in diverse technical teams
  • Communications - Communicate effectively on well-defined engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, by being able to comprehend the work of others, document their own work, and give and receive clear instructions
  • Project Management and Finance - Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a technical team and to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments
  • Life Long Learning - Recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in independent updating in the context of specialised technical knowledge

The curriculum encompasses the knowledge profile as summarised in the table below:

  • A descriptive, formula-based understanding of the natural sciences applicable in a sub-discipline.
  • Procedural mathematics, numerical analysis, statistics applicable in a sub-discipline.
  • A coherent procedural formulation of engineering fundamentals required in an accepted sub-discipline.
  • Engineering specialist knowledge that provides the body of knowledge for an accepted sub-discipline.
  • Knowledge that supports engineering design based on the techniques and procedures of a practice area.
  • Codified practical engineering knowledge in recognised practice area.
  • Knowledge of issues and approaches in engineering technician practice: ethics, financial, cultural, environmental and sustainability impacts.
