Mechanical Engineering BEng / MEng (Hons)

University of Nottingham Malaysia
Semenyih, Selangor
What is mechanical engineering?
Mechanical engineering is a uniquely broad-based profession. Mechanical engineers apply their scientific knowledge to solve problems and design machines or systems to help us enjoy a better life. In addition to areas traditionally associated with the discipline, such as aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, and the power engineering industries, mechanical engineers also work within interdisciplinary teams solving problems in areas such as bioengineering, electrical and electronic systems, environmental protection, food, nanotechnology and the clean energy industry.

How will I study?
The first two years of the BEng and MEng degree programmes are common and at the end of your second year, you can choose to pursue either a three-year BEng degree or a four-year MEng degree, provided you meet the minimum MEng performance benchmark. Both the BEng and MEng options will provide you with the same core skills and knowledge but with the MEng, you will undertake a more substantial project with greater opportunity for specialisation and exposure to relevant research skills and methods in Mechanical Engineering.

The wide range of optional modules in your third year (or fourth year for MEng students) allows you to follow specific themes and to develop areas of expertise and interest along that theme. We strongly recommend the MEng route if you wish to pursue an engineering career.

Industrial training
Industrial training is compulsory if you pursue the MEng degree. You will be expected to participate in industrial training during the summer vacation after the second year of study, although participation in other years or multipleparticipation is also allowed. All industrial training must last for at least 12 consecutive weeks in the same company or institution. If you pursue the BEng degree, you are not required to participate but will be strongly encouraged to do so. Industrial training also provides a great way to identify potential career prospects.

Professional accreditation
Our mechanical engineering degrees are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED), which means that our degrees are recognised under the Washington Accord and the qualification can be used towards your registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council, UK. In Malaysia, the MEng Mechanical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC), Malaysia.

BEng/MEng Mechanical Engineering
Design is a key integrating element in all years of the programme. You will learn real-world engineering, the importance of communication, team-working skills, and entrepreneurship initiatives, with emphasis for environmental sustainability, a mind-set for lifelong learning, appropriate management principles and business acumen. Engineering science and design are core disciplines in this programme whilst other important areas are control, electronics, IT, manufacturing technology, and mathematics. Project work will form a significant part of your final year.

In year three, MEng students undertake a major group project. Up to four students will work as a multidisciplinary team to design, manufacture, and test their prototype, as well as develop a business plan to market their product. All students will undertake an individual project in their final year. The project is commonly experimental, computational or analytical in nature and it will provide a link relating academic understanding, research methods, and professional ethics. You will be able to choose your individual project topic, most of which are based upon real industrial problems.
