Course Description

This newly introduced programme is designed to meet the expectations and needs of the industry. One of the main reasons for this new course to be offered was the favourable market survey responses from industries on the employability of diploma graduates from the mechanical engineering field. Mechanical engineering is one of the top in-demand disciplines of engineering due to the graduates being versatile and knowledgeable in many different fields.

The diploma programme is designed to provide students not only with the necessary academic and technical understanding of the related mechanical engineering-related fields but also challenge the students to experience invaluable practical training in the industry. Students are given the opportunity to obtain valuable hands-on experience through lab experiments, group projects and in their final year projects.

Upon completion of this Diploma in Mechanical Engineering programme, students can opt to pursue further studies in the Mechanical Engineering degree programme offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET) or to join the workforce in the industry as a qualified diploma graduate.

The programme is also recognized by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Council (ETAC) under the Board of Engineers Malaysia. Graduates of this programme will qualify to apply for Inspector of Works (IoW) from BEM.
