Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in UiTM of fers 2 undergraduate programmes:
a. Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Mechanical (EM220)
b. Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Manufacturing) (Hons) (EM221)
Both programmes are wide range degree programmes and it has a close relationship with industrial needs. This programme provides a basic foundation in Mechanical Engineering. Our graduates will become engineers in assembly lines, Research and Design (R&D), sales and marketing or quality control fields. With this qualification, graduates may become a Professional Engineers and can then fur ther their studies in Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL) leading to a Master’s Degree and followed by a Doctorate.
The programme is usually of fered to candidates with a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering as well as to those who have completed the Science Matriculation Programme. The duration of this programme is four years and comprises eight semesters for a full-time study mode. Candidates with a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from UiTM would be admitted to the third semester with credits exemptions while candidates from the Matriculation Asasi UiTM Programme would begin from the first semester. Candidates with other diploma qualifications would be admitted to the second or third semester with some credits exemptions. The faculty also of fers the Degree Programme on a part-time basis.
Graduates are eligible to register as engineers with the Board of Engineers, Malaysia (BEM) and the Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM), and qualif y to sit for the professional examinations of Professional Engineers (P.Eng) upon completion of graduate training.
All students are also required to undergo two extra curricular courses in the first two semesters.
