Apply fundamental laws of maths and science to create mechanical devices that we use every day
Faculty of Engineering & Technology
Mechanical engineering plays a critical role in solving the world’s grand challenges by producing sustainable energy, providing a safe environment and clean water, building safe and efﬁcient transportation systems, designing new means of energy conversion and storage, and improving mechanical/electrical systems in homes and buildings. Emerging high technology ﬁelds of nano-materials and biomechanics are further examples of areas where mechanical engineering plays a vital role. Furthermore, established areas of mechanical engineering such as design, manufacturing, automation and control are essential elements to devising large-scale complex systems that drive the global economy.
Mechanical Engineer is one of the world’s most in-demand profession in various industries and sectors according to the OECD database. The versatility of the field means that mechanical engineering graduates would be able to compete for any job that requires competencies in science, technology, and engineering with a strong quantitative backbone. Mechanical engineers carry with them an ability to solve engineering problems, to create and design mechanical/electronics devices from the known to the unknown, in a logical and reproducible manner, thus allowing for the creation of leading-edge innovations in any sector in which they happen to work.
Potential career pathways for graduates of Industrial Engineering include but are not limited to:
Laboratories in SU are common facilities, i.e. they are shared by multiple programs.
