The Department of Mechanical Engineering aims to produce graduates with adequate knowledge and skills that can  
•    Work in both the private and public sectors of the global economy.
•    Initiate and carryout engineering designs and studies that will benefit society.
•    Engage in the management of industrial production operations.

•    Pursue research and development activities


The Department was established in October 2009 with an intake of twelve (12) students for the five year Bachelor of Engineering Honours Degree in Mechanical Engineering with the Senior Secondary School Certificate (SSCE) or General Certificate of Education (GCE) O-level as entry qualification. The fundamental goal is to develop and provide special Engineering education geared towards the achievement of national goals and objectives, industrialization and self-reliance with special interest in the oil and gas industries as well as the allied sectors of the global economy.

In addition, the programme provides the hands-on experience to the students through training in the theory and practice of Engineering, early introduction of students to entrepreneurship education, and acquisition of practical industrial experience for students by partnering with local industries in the execution of Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES).
