The Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak provides a diverse, vibrant, supportive and interactive environment for our students. We began offering the 4-year degree programme in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering since 1996 and has since then continuously grow and improve our curriculum to meet the latest demand in this field.
Our undergraduates are exposed to the fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering in courses such as Statics & Dynamics, Solid & Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Engineering Materials and others. Undergraduates also learn the fundamentals of design and manufacturing in courses such as Engineering Drawing, Workshop, Manufacturing Technology, Manufacturing Systems and Robotics. In their final year, our undergraduates are given the opportunity for creativity and apply the fundamentals that they have learnt through Integrated Design Projects and Final Year Projects. We also offer a diverse selection of elective courses such as Computational Fluid Dynamics, IC Engine, Tribology, Operations Research, Energy Resources and Management, and Polymer & Composite.
A mechanical engineering graduate can find career opportunity in many industries. Our graduates are often sought after by employers from numerous industries, including manufacturing, energy, oil & gas, construction, and others. This is a testament to the robust relationship that DMEE established with our stakeholders in the industry, thus allowing us to design a curriculum that equip our students with the skills and knowledge they will need in their future career.
Our department consists of 34 dedicated academic staffs with broad variety of research interests and expertise, supported by 8 technical staff to guide and assist students in their laboratory works. We offer wide area of researches that our staffs and postgraduates conduct under the supervision of our department members.
Aligned with our programme’s education objectives, we value professionalism and ethics, and we encourage advancement of the engineering profession through lifelong learning by active involvement in research and development activities. We aspire to not only produce ethical and quality engineers, but also graduates that identifies the importance of harmony and unity among people of diverse ethnic and background.
The department also continuously engage with other institutions, agencies and industry for research and academic collaboration as well as consultancy works. We recognised that engineers often seek opportunities for personal and professional development, thus we catered to this demand by offering a coursework postgraduate programme, Master of Engineering (Mechanical) from 2019.
We look forward for you to join us and be part of our graduates!
