Mechanical engineers are concerned with the principles of motion, energy and force. Generally, a machine converts one form of movement into another. It is the responsibly of engineers to design machines whose parts and assemblies function in a safe and reliable, efficient and predictable fashion. In the words of one author, the mechanical engineer applies scientific methods to the solution of mechanical problems. Indeed, the numerous laws and principles developed by scientists are the everyday tools of the mechanical engineer.
Anything the engineer does that is related to the motion and dynamics of heat, gas, air, fluids, and solid materials requires the understanding and application of science. The Mechanical Engineering Department is involved in teaching, research and consultancy, as well as guiding project/thesis/dissertation students at all First Degree, Higher Degree. Mechanical Engineering Department also has an “ME Association” that is responsible for conducting the co-curricular activities for Mechanical Engineering students.
