Study Program at a Glance

Scope of Engineering

The following is a brief explanation of the mechanical engineering fields

  • Structure analysis: discusses the ability of a structure/construction to withstand loads
  • Engineering materials: discusses the strength of the material and the way in which a material is formed
  • Kinematics: discuss the analysis of movement (position, speed, and acceleration) on a mechanism.
  • Dynamics: discusses the analysis of motion in a mechanism in relation to the working force/torque.
  • Thermodynamics: discusses energy and its changes from one form to another.
  • Heat transfer: discusses the transfer of energy in the form of heat/heat along with the temperature distribution that occurs.
  • Material Engineering: discusses the material properties and manufacturing process
  • Energy conversion machines: discusses systems in the form of cycles that are used to produce work in the form of motion
  • Cooling/refrigeration Engineering: discusses systems used to cool substances and air conditioning systems
  • Fluid mechanics: discusses the analysis of fluid in static (silent) and dynamic (moving) conditions. Examples include pressure or flotation force produced by fluid and drag force acting on a vehicle.
  • Aerodynamics: a part of fluid mechanics that increases the flow of gas around solid objects.
  • Hydrodynamics: a part of fluid mechanics that discusses the flow of liquid around solid objects.
  • Metrology: discusses the methods and tools for geometry (shape)
  • Mechanical Vibration: discusses vibration analysis for predicting and controlling vibrations.
  • Industrial Automation: discusses automated tools and methods used in industry
  • Mechatronics: discusses the mechanical control systems using electronic devices and computers
  • Manufacturing: is a field of engineering science that studies the processes of making products, from the design process, the production process to the quality control process.
