Department of Mechanical Engineering
Educational Objectives

Mechanical engineering forms the basis of industry. It is essential for the manufacturing of many products such as automobiles, home appliances, machining tools, energy machines, and welfare and medical equipment. There is an increasing demand in the field of mechanical engineering for energy saving, less environmental impact, and improvement of safety and reliability. We train our students to become mechanical engineers with basic knowledge, design and applied skills for manufacturing, knowledge of new materials and their processing methods, environmental and energy skills, and the ability to respond to social needs.
