Why study ‘with a Year in Mechanical Engineering’?
Mechanical engineering, as a diverse and fundamental engineering discipline, transforms an idea from its conception to a physical product following a systematic process. The breadth of such products ranges from small individual parts (e.g., microscale sensors, switches) to huge systems (e.g., automobiles, aircraft, powerplants). Mechanical engineers play a key role in a wide range of industries including automotive, aerospace, power generation, mechatronics, biotechnology, robotics and automation, renewable energy, healthcare machinery, transportation systems, fuels and combustion systems, water supply systems, underwater & space exploration, and more.
