The principle objective of Mechanical Engineering is to provide an intellectual foundation on which life-long learning and successful careers can be built. The four year degree course in Mechanical Engineering accommodates in-depth technical knowledge, technical breadth, flexibility and the intellectual skills necessary for life- long learning.
The students can enter any among a wide variety of career paths for which a Mechanical Engineering background would constitute a desirable foundation.
Classical Mechanical Engineering principles will remain essential for the development of new technologies in the Life Sciences, Mechatronics, Nano-Technology and Micro-scale devices. Mechanical Engineers must have the intellectual ability to contribute not only to their specialized expertise in interdisciplinary collaborations for technology development, but to understand and appreciate the contributions of specialists in other fields as well.
Evolutionary changes in Mechanical Engineering are vitally important for sustaining the vitality of the profession. These changes are intimately linked in importance to Mechanical Engineering's contributions to the development of new technologies.
