aL­MOST ev­ery in­dus­try re­quires me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neers as they are needed to op­er­ate ma­chin­ery, fab­ri­cate equip­ment and are es­sen­tial in the man­u­fac­tur­ing of var­i­ous prod­ucts.

Me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neers are also needed to de­sign, de­velop and main­tain build­ing fa­cil­i­ties such as light­ing, air-con­di­tion­ing and fire-fight­ing equip­ment. Air­planes will not fly and ships will not float if they are not prop­erly de­signed, man­u­fac­tured or main­tained by me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neers.

SEGi Univer­sity Group of­fers the Bach­e­lor of En­gi­neer­ing (Honours) in Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing, a 3+0 pro­gramme in part­ner­ship with Univer­sity of Sun­der­land, the United King­dom, which was short­listed for Univer­sity of the Year in the Times Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Awards 2012.

The pro­gramme is man­aged and qual­ity as­sured through the Univer­sity of Sun­der­land’s stan­dard pro­cesses. Mod­ules are over­seen by a Mod­ule Stud­ies Board and each year the mod­ule leader pro­vides a brief re­port on the de­liv­ery of the mod­ule, iden­ti­fy­ing strengths and ar­eas for de­vel­op­ment.

Stu­dent achieve­ment, in­clud­ing pro­gres­sion be­tween lev­els and de­gree clas­si­fi­ca­tion, is kept un­der re­view.

The learn­ing strat­egy for this pro­gramme ad­heres to the univer­sity’s teach­ing and learn­ing strat­egy doc­u­ment.

Within all lev­els of the pro­grammes, stu­dents gain ex­pe­ri­ence in a wide range of dif­fer­ent ap­proaches to learn­ing, from tra­di­tional lec­tures and tu­to­ri­als to di­rected study and on­line re­sources.

The mod­ules are de­liv­ered us­ing a va­ri­ety of rel­e­vant and ap­pro­pri­ate learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences, in­clud­ing for­mal lec­tures, tu­to­ri­als, case stud­ies, soft­ware learn­ing and di­rected read­ing.

This pro­gramme equips stu­dents with the abil­ity to un­der­stand en­gi­neer­ing con­cepts and tech­niques used to an­a­lyse en­gi­neer­ing sys­tems, as well as the pro­cesses used for the syn­the­sis of so­lu­tions to en­gi­neer­ing prob­lems.

Stu­dents will need to demon­strate their knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing to an in­creas­ingly com­plex and real­is­tic range of en­gi­neer­ing sys­tems.

A range of learn­ing and teach­ing meth­ods ap­pro­pri­ate to the sit­u­a­tion will be used to en­cour­age un­der­stand­ing, de­velop skills and abil­i­ties and to mo­ti­vate stu­dents.

Stu­dents will also be ex­posed to a range of prac­ti­cal en­gi­neer­ing skills, in­clud­ing the safe use of hand and ma­chine tools and vis­its to fac­to­ries and multi-na­tional com­pa­nies.

This hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence of ba­sic man­u­fac­tur­ing meth­ods will give a di­rect ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the “process ca­pa­bil­ity” of such meth­ods.

Hand draw­ing skills and draugh­t­ing con­ven­tions will be taught and stu­dents will use the lat­est en­gi­neer­ing soft­ware in the mar­ket to sup­port their stud­ies.

The pro­gramme is avail­able at three SEGi cam­puses.
