Master complex mechanical engineering systems

Mechanical engineers work with advanced technology across a wide range of specialisations.

Mechanical engineering is the foundation for multiple engineering disciplines like aero, marine, automotive, robotics, and marine sectors. Mechanical engineers are in demand in various industries or developing new technologies and machine operations to facilitate production processes. 

At UOW Malaysia, the Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with Honours program enables students to apply the principles of physics and material science to design, produce and operate a wide variety of equipment and systems. Our approach is holistic learning to ensure graduates are well equipped with a solid platform for adaptation to ever-changing developments in science and technology, thus meeting the rigorous demands of global industries.

Students will gain various opportunities for hands-on training to hone their technical skills and knowledge through various subjects, to be completed in our state-of-the-art laboratories.

Our Design Centric Curriculum also ensures that students will be able to apply their analytical and design skills through creative problem-solving in industry projects.

This program also allows students to choose an area of focus through technical electives:

  • Mechanical
  • Material


Mechanical Engineering Career Opportunities

In addition to being an Mechanical Engineer, graduates can also pursue the following careers:

Program information


Hands-on learning and real-world experience are crucial in ensuring our students, as future engineers, stay current and remain relevant when they begin their career. Actively engaging industry experts and exposing students to real-life practices, as well as the development of real-life projects are some of the ways we ensure our students set themselves apart and are more grounded from their exposure to the different challenges faced in the industry. Engineering courses at UOW Malaysia emphasize on Design-Centric Curriculum (DCC), with Design Thinking as the grounding principle of teaching and learning. Students are required to engage in design assignments, Capstone projects and Problem-Based Learning (PBL) to develop their skills in design, complex problem-solving, project management, teamwork, lifelong learning and complex communication.



Industry Advisory Panel:

  • Our Industry Advisory Panel is made up of various industry professionals and engineers, who provide valuable industry insights to enhance our curriculum and students’ learning. Panel members include those from ABB Malaysia, ProvenPac and YTL Construction, just to name a few.

Industrial Project:

  • Our students are required to complete Final Year engineering projects, which are collaborations with the industry, based on real-world challenges posed by selected organisations. These projects challenge and test students’ skill and creativity in solving complex, real-world problems.

Industrial Visits:

  • Students are provided with exposure to real-world work environment and processes through industrial visits to various plants, sites and organisations, such as MRT construction sites, Energy Commission of Malaysia, MEASAT Satellite Systems and Fraser and Neave, just to name a few.

Young Professional Experience:

  • Through the Young Professional Experience sharing sessions, our engineering students are able to gain insights on various engineering industries and learn more about the experiences of young engineers, some of whom include Mr Loo Ping Yew (R. Stahl Engineering & Manufacturing), and Chin Ze Wei (Schneider Electric).

Industrial Training Partners:

  • Industrial training not only enables our students to brush up on their engineering knowledge and skills but also strengthens their communication skills and emotional quotient. Some collaborative linkage that provide placements for UOW Malaysia’s engineering students to undergo attachment to gain related experience as well as exposure to the engineering practice in an actual workplace settings.



Industrial Project And Consultancy Partners:

  • Collaborative linkage that crafts a platform on joint technical initiatives and projects that integrates element of research that provide specific solution development and expertise to help solve partners challenges.
