Master of Science Mechanical Engineering

Programme Specifications

The Master of Science in mechanical engineering offers a broad and diverse subject that derives its breadth from the need to analyse and design various mechanical components. Throughout the period of study, students may learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation and design to comprehend various mechanical systems. The breadth of the mechanical engineering discipline allows students a variety of career options. For those interested in applied scientific and mathematical aspects of the discipline, graduate study in mechanical engineering programme can lead to a career of research and teaching. This programme is offered either on a full-time or part-time basis. The fulltime programme is offered only at the UTM Main Campus in Johor Bahru while the part-time programme is offered at various learning centres throughout Malaysia. The normal full-time program can be completed in a minimum of one year, i.e. two long semesters and one short semester. The full time student is allowed to take a maximum of 20 credits in a normal semester and 10 credits in a short semester. The part time student is allowed to take a maximum of 12 credits in a normal semester and 6 credits in a short semester. Assessment is based on coursework and final examinations given throughout the semester.
