Mechanical Engineering is concerned with the designing, manufacturing and analysis of various types of machines and mechanical systems. Individuals who are keen to enhance their problem-solving skills and possess a strong interest in mathematics and physics have the potential to be nurtured as professional Mechanical Engineers who strive to improve the quality of life for the community and are armed with strong social awareness.
At UCSI University, the programme is designed to groom future Mechanical Engineers who are team players, are innovative in solving complex problems and possess excellent communication skills. The course starts with a basic foundation in mathematics and physics, and towards the end of the programme, strong emphasis is placed on developing the students’ abilities in designing mechanical components and systems, as well as solving complex engineering problems by applying various techniques and computational methods. The programme offers sufficient depth and breadth of study through a variety of courses such as thermodynamics, heat transfer, air-conditioning systems, power plant technology and internal combustion engines, among others. Apart from that, students are exposed to the latest advances in engineering technologies from time to time, in order to inculcate lifelong learning habits.
To foster competitiveness among graduates, students are required to undergo industrial training under UCSI University’s Co-operative Training Placement Scheme at the end of their 2nd and 3rd academic years. This allows students to be exposed to and prepare themselves for a real-life working environment. Students are required to undertake a research and development project in their final year of study.
All of UCSI University’s engineering degree programmes comply with the latest requirements for accreditation by the Malaysian Engineering Accreditation Council, which fulfils the international requirements drafted in the Washington Accord.
The quality of teaching in the Mechanical
engineering degree programme is considered
to be of the highest level and helps UCSI
University achieve its primary aims of developing
its students’ ability to think; building
confidence in problem-solving, and helping
students apply their newly-acquired knowledge
to practical situations.
The UCSI University School of Engineering
employs a range of teaching methods:
Design and research projects
Specialist seminars / Site visits
Co-Operative placement / Industrial
Courses are assessed through examination
or coursework, presentations and project
work, or a combination of these.

*Chemistry is required for Chemical Engineering; Physics is required for all other programmes.
A distinction (A+, A or A-) in the English Language subject at SPM/UEC level; or MUET Band 5; or a score of 196 (computer-based) / 525 (writing-based) / 69-70 (internet-based) in TOEFL; or Band 5.5 in IELTS.
In the event that the English Language Requirements are not met, student may be required to undertake additional English module(s) prior to or concurrently with the undergraduate programme, based on the University’s decision.
* International students holding equivalent academic qualifications but which are not conducted in English, are required to sit for the English Placement Test, which may result in the taking of the Certificate in English programme (1 to 10 months). Students who intend to pursue the above undergraduate programme directly, are advised to fulfil the above English requirements prior to commencing their studies at the University.
Today’s Mechanical Engineers are involved with all forms of
energy utilisation and conversion, machines, manufacturing
materials and processes, as well as engines. The energy crisis has
brought to focus a need for new sources of energy. Thus,
Mechanical Engineers actively research solar, geothermal and
wind energy sources, along with other relevant related research
activities to increase eﬀorts in producing electricity from fossil
fuels, and hydroelectric and nuclear sources. Mechanical
Engineers are also involved in designing and developing
machines and mechanisms used in all forms of manufacturing
Graduates of this Mechanical Engineering course will ﬁnd career
opportunities in the ﬁelds of energy technology, combustion,
acoustics, noise and vibration control, manufacturing processes,
metallurgical processes, machine design, automated machinery
and robotics, quality management, plant layouts, and process
simulation, among others.
