This 3 year degree programme has been carefully designed with a heavy emphasis on Manufacturing and Production Engineering & Technologies. First two years of the degree programme is mapped to Pearson BTEC HND in Mechanical Engineering by Kingston University, London. At the year 3, students will follow the Final year of BSc (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering Degree Programmeof Kingston University, London. Students with NDT, NDES, SLIATE, HND or equivalent qualification can join the final year of this programme. (Top-up Degree)
Many mechanical engineers join production and manufacturing industry; work in the thermal power plants, engage in design and maintenance of industrial equipments and machinery, heating and
cooling systems for a range of industrial and commercial applications; all sorts of vehicular systems such as automobiles, aircrafts and watercrafts; and robotics. Modern-day mechanical engineers are heavily involved in the fields of automation, mechatronics and nanotechnology. Kingston University’s BSc (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering course lays the perfect foundation for future Mechanical Engineer.

ME6010 – Business Management and Quality Systems
The module provide students with an in depth understanding of business and management concepts required by professional engineers and enable them to acquire a set of skills for successful employment in large national and international companies. Additionally it develops students’ enterprising skills & attributes as well as their appreciation of engineering profession in a global context.
A major aspect of the module is introduction of quality systems with an emphasis on statistical approach to quality enhancement in engineering, including reliability, design of experiments and benchmarking.
ME6114 – Individual Project
This module is a core module in all the BSc programmes offered by the School and forms a capstone experience for the course. This major project is undertaken throughout the final year of the
programme and allows the students to research and study in depth a topic in their particular engineering discipline which is of personal interest, thus allowing them to demonstrate their ability to: Analyse and evaluate relevant subject areas previously covered in the course. Acquire and appraise new knowledge related to the project. Show willingness to apply individual judgement to new problems. Apply creativity and show intellectual input. Show organisational capability (through arranging meetings with supervisors, setting project goals and meeting appropriate deadlines).Communicate with others (through completing reports and a log book, as well as presenting a seminar and producing a display poster for the project). This module provides the students with an opportunity to further enhance the independence and employability skills industry is looking for in graduate engineers.
ME6115 -Industrial Group Project
This module is a group project learning activity which may be based upon industrial need. The student group will be presented with an initial specification of industrial relevance. The group must
develop this initial specification into a final design.
ME6131-Computer Aided Engineering and Mechatronics
This module introduces two major topics; firstly it is aimed at providing a short practical introduction to two of the standard analysis techniques available in the industry for the solution of complex engineering problems. These are Finite Element Analysis (FEA), and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The module will give the opportunity to develop skills and competence in using the FEA and CFD specialisedsoftware codes such as SolidWorks Simulation and SolidWorks Flow Simulation Such skills are readily transferable to more advanced stand-alone packages which may be used at a later stage in studies or in careers as professional engineers.
Secondly the module aims to develop a thorough understanding of the techniques of interfacing sensors and actuators to a computer and to develop an in depth knowledge of the programming
techniques necessary to achieve integration of a system. It also aims to develop a thorough understanding of how imbedded microprocessors may be used to control real world events.
