The integration and combination of the different study-units offered within this course program leads to the development of a comprehensive and competent mechanical engineer who is capable of applying multidisciplinary mechanical engineering knowledge in a vast range of organizational and industrial applications.
The programme provides further in-depth knowledge and understanding in Applied Mechanics and Thermo-fluids Engineering, or Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, or Applied Materials in Engineering as selected by the student.
The overall aim is to provide students with: a good working knowledge of the fundamentals of systems and processes which are generally recognized to be in the domain of mechanical engineering and its related subjects; being able to understand, model and predict the behaviour of engineering artefacts through the application of scientific and technological principles; a great deal of engineering practice in creating new solutions, adapting old ones, and in using the acquired knowledge in applied mechanics, thermos-fluids, materials engineering, maritime engineering, energy systems, manufacturing and computer-aided engineering design techniques.
The Mechanical Engineering (Hons) course at the University of Malta also aims to develop additional transferable skills for graduates to continue develop their capacity through lifelong learning; to exercise personal responsibility by taking ownership of assigned projects; to increase their skills in communicating and working effectively with others through grouped and individual projects; and to grow to understand their place in society as an engineer in a complex and fascinating professional community.
Career opportunites and access to further studies
Mechanical Engineers find employment very quickly in various sectors, such as aerospace, automotive, construction, energy, manufacturing, maritime, medicine, or even sport. The course is designed to provide broad based fundamental knowledge to facilitate job mobility. For those with an entrepreneurial mind set, the starting up of a technology based company can be an attractive option.
Salaries are very good and potential for personal growth is limited only by your imagination and motivation. Local sectors of employment include: building services, entrepreneurship, self-employment, consultancies, manufacturing industries, government agencies, pharmaceutical plants, hotels and hospitality, power generation and distribution, water and waste treatment, mobile and fixed telecommunication companies, hospitals, education and research institutions and many others.
