LEARNING OUTCOMES OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DEGREE PROGRAMME
The degree programme intends to prepare students and graduate them with a number of abilities and skills. The intended learning outcomes of the degree program have been clearly defined and are accessible to all relevant stakeholders, especially to teachers, trainers, lecturers, and students. These outcomes are valid and based on currently accepted technical developments in mechanical engineering. The intended learning outcomes and the requirements to achieve them have been made transparent to the learners. Students and prospective students can find the learning outcomes on the web site of the department. Formal mechanisms are in place for the periodic review and monitoring of the degree programme. Students are assessed using the published criteria to ensure that the learning outcomes intended by the degree programme have all been achieved. Student achievements have been measured and monitored constantly to make sure that they are competent to take up qualified employment after graduating from the degree programme.
A list of the intended learning outcomes of the degree programme is given below
- Apply energy, momentum, continuity, state and constitutive equations to thermal, fluids and mechanical systems in a logical and discerning manner.
- Design and perform laboratory experiments for thermal, fluid and mechanical systems to gather data and test theories.
- Ability to understand and apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
- Participate effectively in the same-discipline and cross-disciplinary groups.
- Identify, formulate, and solve thermal, fluid and mechanical engineering problems by applying first principles, including open-ended problems.
- Develop practical solutions for mechanical engineering problems under professional and ethical constraints.
- Communicate effectively with written, oral, and visual means in a technical setting.
- Recognize the fact that solutions may sometimes require non-engineering considerations such as art and impact on society.
- Be prepared for a lifetime of continuing education.
- Recognize environmental constraints and safety issues in engineering
- An ability to use modern modeling and simulation techniques, and computing tools.
