   programmes, namely :-

Mechanical Engineering Technology (Machining) – RY55

This programme prepare the workforces who are productive, innovative, creative and well verse with the state-of-the art technology related to mechanical engineering technology. In essence, the programme curricular is designed to lead towards practical needs so as to produce highly skilled graduates in the field of engineering and technology that meet the recent industrial requirement and other sectors concerned. In particular, this programme emphasises on the applications or utilisations of related knowledge and skills within the spectrum of mechanical and machining technology fields. This includes material and metal cutting technology, management of technology and sustainability. In addition, the required university course allow the students to enchance their communication and thinking skills, as well as ethical elements of professionalism in their careers.


Mechanical Engineering Technology (Agricultural Systems) – RY56

The programme aims to generate engineering technologist who are competent and posses a sound and balanced skill in integrating biological engineering and management principles. The course are delivered based on practical approach that covers basic and applied engineering principles of economics and business management in the agricultural and related industries. The students are also exposed to agra-industrial know-how through courses and skills that are applicable in many related industries. The final semester of the programme is dedicated to the industrial training activitiy attaching the students to relevant industries mainly to enchance their capability and skill in accordance to the market needs.

Mechanical Engineering Technology (Product Development) – RY57

The objectives of this programme is to produce highly skilled qraduates that possess solid foundation knowledge in the general field of mechanical engineering technology and in the areas of product development particularly. The programme has been designed in a holistic manner to provide students with a blend of theoretical knowledge, industrial artistic and technical skills in the discipline of technology-based product development in line with the requirements of the mechanical engineering industry. Therefore, it would help in producing engineering technologist who are responsible in applyinh, preparing, maintaining and development products in all aspects to modern mechanical engineering technology.

Mechanical Engineering Technology (Material Processing Technology) – RY58

The objective of this programme is to produce graduates who are skilled, competitive and have a strong knowledge based in the field of materials processing engineering technology. Graduates will have the capability to demonstrate as a knowledge and talented engineering technologist in problem solving skills, in addition to materials processing, characterization and testing in materials processing technology field.
The course are delivered based on practical approach that covers four main fields which is metal processing, polymer processing, electronic packaging and ceramic processing as well as principles in economics and management. The programme has been designed to cultivate materials engineering technologist who are committed to the important of life-long learning and continuous improvement. Hence, upholding the importance of professionalism and ethics of material processing profession to form a cultured and more developed society.

Career Opportunities

Graduates can seek employment in sporting organisations and institutes, orthopaedic and industrial design companies and can work together with scientists, coaches, athletes, the disables, sporting goods manufacturers, venue managers and other engineers.

Within these organisations and individuals, the sports engineering technologists will have the skills to develop equipment and facilities used by sportspersons including designing sporting goods, rehabilitation devices, apparel, computer simulation models and infrastructure that will improve and enhance athletic performance.

However, being based on a mechanical engineering technology degree, graduates will retain flexibility in the choice of engineering industry for their careers. In most cases graduates will also be able to work wherever mechanical engineering technologists are employed.
