BSc (Hons) Mechanical Engineering

Recent developments in alternative energy crisis, developments in material science and revolutionary new machine designs have fueled the development of new technologies and research related to Mechanical Engineering. The impact of these developments is evident in post-war Sri Lanka.

A Mechanical Engineering graduate is responsible for product design, testing, planning for profitable and high-quality production and management of the business. Mechanical Engineering is a key to many of the issues affecting our quality of life today. Mechanical Engineers are engaged in designing mechanisms to improve the performances of products & processes, reduce the wastages & emissions of the production plant and machinery; they are working on solutions to reduce energy waste and use alternative energy sources in a sustainable manner.
