Department of Mechanical Engineering

Introduction

Mechanical Engineering is one of the major divisions within the profession and its principles are involved in the design, development and construction of nearly all of the physical devices and systems which technology has produced. Mechanical engineers are also concerned with the operations of all kinds of machinery, and the production of power. They must conceive, research, design, develop, test, manufacture and sell equipment for these purposes. This course will introduce you to the realm of mechanical engineering and the relationships between mathematics, physics, communications and sciences which is important for the study, design, analysis and manufacturing of mechanical products and systems.
