Starting your degree read more

We have designed the course content to make engineering more interesting for beginners. We frequently reviewed the course content to engage the incoming student with internationally recognized and up-to-date programs. During your first year of study, you will learn fewer technical courses and more advanced physics, chemistry, and mathematics. Because this is required for a skilled problem solver in today's mechanical engineers. As you go to the upper level of your program, more technical courses will be introduced and you will do more assignments, exams, quizzes, etc. Daily class tutorials are the main resources of your program to prepare yourself for the future. You have opportunity to use state-of-the-art technology in the lab to learn, experiment, and test your ideas.
