MINOR PROGRAM(S) IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

Minor Program in Mechatronics

Faculty of Engineering offers a Minor Program on Mechatronics for undergraduate students of the Faculty of Engineering. Mechatronics is a methodology and design philosophy which blends areas of technology involving analysis and design of the behaviour of systems of sensors, measurements, drives, actuators as well as their microprocessor based controls. A mechatronic system is multidisciplinary, embedding several fundamental disciplines; electrical and electronics, computer science and information technology and mechanical engineering with fundamental engineering design methodology. The main purpose of this program is to provide the successful and motivated students within broad knowledge of mechatronics that will enable them to practice their profession in an interdisciplinary manner.

Minor Program in Production

Mechanical Engineering Department also offers a Minor Program on Production for undergraduate students of other disciplines. The purpose of the Minor Program on Production is to give the interested and successful students a general view of production technology, with the expectation that they will perform better in their own discipline, having acquired a wider scope of knowledge and a different perspective. The courses are divided into two categories; five compulsory courses and three restricted elective courses. The compulsory courses are to create the necessary background and to teach the fundamental principles. The students can extend their knowledge in a selected field of production through the elective courses.
