Mechanical Engineering
Our mission is to train qualified individuals with the capability of systhetic designing
based on creative thinking and spirit of challenge, thus benefiting the global society.


The mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering is to educate future leaders with solid engneering background and strong social commitment. To accomplish this mission, the department operates a highly competitive curriculum with strong emphasis on engineering foundations for emerging technologies of the 21st century. The curriculum is designed to maximize the capacity of mechanical engineers to undertake crucial roles in implementation of these technologies.

Significant effort has also been made to provide students with hands-on opportunities and computer skills. The students are catered to gain interdisciplinary understanding of basic as well as applied sciences so that they will be equipped with the flexibility to adapt to rapidly changing technology trend.

Career Opportunities

Graduates from our Mechanical Engineering department have entered a wide-variety of fields, including the automotive, heavy industry, defense industry, environment/energy, electronics and communication, construction, and in diverse start-up companies. In addition to the traditional manufacturing industry, mechanical engineers are expected to advance in the forthcoming new frontier industries such as information technology, new and renewable energy, mechatronics, robotics, bio-medical instruments, MEMS.
