Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Honours)

by | Jun 28, 2019

Mechanical engineering is about turning energy into motion and power. It covers the generation, conversion, transmission and use of mechanical and thermal energy, and includes the design, construction and operation of devices and systems. It also involves the behaviours of solids, liquids and gases when forces are applied and when they are heated and cooled.

As a mechanical engineer you could work in research and development, product and process design, technical sales and support, manufacturing, field and test engineering, project management, systems design and power plant operations and quality control. You could work in the petrochemical, automotive, transportation, aerospace, electronic, mining and robotic industries.

Course structure

The common first year lays a foundation in the basic sciences of mathematics, physics and chemistry and introduces the disciplines available to you for further study. You will learn to apply your developing maths and science knowledge to real-life problems and begin to understand the interaction between engineering and society.

Depending on academic performance and quotas, you can pursue a specific discipline from your second year of study.

Monash Malaysia campus students must undergo training in an industrial-based environment after their third year of study, as required by the Board of Engineers Malaysia’s Engineering Accreditation Council. After the 12-week training, students must submit a written report, detailing your work experience.
