Mechanical engineering may be the most diverse of the engineering fields, embracing many subfields and affecting all aspects of our lives. Today one of the challenges of mechanical engineers is to invent efficient, low-cost machines that use the fewest possible natural resources to improve the lives of people throughout the world. Moreover, the mechanical engineer should strive both to serve the needs of society without unduly damaging the environment and to produce devices and systems that use energy and material resources efficiently.
The mechanical engineering program stresses the role of engineers in planning, creating machines, devices, and systems, and skillful management of projects. Emphasis is placed on the generation, conversion, transmission, and utilization of mechanical and thermal energy including the design, manufacturing, and operation of the related mechanical devices. The theme of education sharpens the student’s skills in communication, teamwork, and usage of computers and information technology. Specific humanity concerns are also highlighted. Non-Engineering electives are also available in the field of Economics, Business, Accounting, and History.
The department’s vision is to be a pioneer in the fields of mechanical engineering and to provide highly qualified graduates who are able to support society and produce research at an international level.
The department is committed to providing high-quality education covering a wide range of mechanical engineering fields to prepare a graduate capable of effectively applying engineering knowledge in evaluating, designing, operating and maintaining mechanical systems. It also aims to produce applied research that contributes to solving community problems.
