PROGRAMMES OF STUDY
Mechanical Engineering is a highly diversified professional engineering discipline encompassing manufacturing, automation, robotics, automotive engineering, energy conversion, and the like. Mechanical engineering includes the science and art of formulation, design, development, and control of systems and component involving thermodynamics, mechanics, fluid mechanics, mechanisms, manufacturing and energy. The first two years of the programme are primarily concerned with developing a foundation in mathematics, science, basic engineering sciences and practical skills essential to pursue studies in the field of mechanical engineering. The third year includes applied engineering units in thermal engineering, materials, automatic control, mechanical design and engineering management. In the final year students can focus their studies on specialized areas including manufacturing engineering (ME) and energy engineering (EE).
The course includes project work based on laboratory, library and field work, and partial assessment completed through seminars. Students undergo a compulsory six months industrial training at the end of second and third year of study with duration of three months each. Mechanical engineering graduates can find the employment in many sectors such as manufacturing, transportation, logistics and industrial automation. Job functions and responsibilities range from product and production design engineering, plant operation and maintenance, quality control and project management. With experience and further education, some mechanical engineers move into management skills and expertise. Graduate mechanical engineers have skills readily transferable between employers and may also find work internationally.
G.C.E Advanced Level 3 passes (Sri Lanka) or 1C and 2D passess (Edexel/Cambridge) in Maths stream including a Credit pass in Mathematics or physics in one and the same sitting and a pass at the aptitude test to be conducted by SLIIT.
