University Teknologi Malaysia
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FME) at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia has a long history of quality engineering education and research. The FME, with a total undergraduate and graduate enrollment of about 2300 students, is one of the largest engineering faculties in Malaysia.
Students have an opportunity to delve into a broad range of research areas such as energy, environment, information technology, manufacturing, and transportation. Major research projects are under way in ,among others, advanced materials, biofuel, turbomachinery, combustion technology, and biomedical engineering. In all of these areas, research is being conducted to uncover the underlying physical phenomena with a view toward controlling and designing systems for desired attributes. Also under way are research projects to develop enabling technologies such as new engine technology, microturbine technology and computational methods. Much of the research is conducted within the faculty, but many projects are carried out in collaboration with other faculties and centres on campus, as well as with other national universities and with industrial partnership and collaborations.
The faculty operates several national laboratories, research centres and national instututes including Automotive Development Centre (ADC), Marine Laboratory, Institute of Noise and Vibration, and Aeronautical Laboratory. In addition to these, FME also houses several reseach laboratories including Robotic and Mechatronic Lab, Material Engineering Laboratory, Applied Mechanics and Materials Testing Laboratory, Production and Industrial Engineering Laboratory, and CAD/CAE Laboratory.
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FME) at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia is a comprehensive engineering faculty offering postgraduate programmes in all major fields of mechanical engineering including robotics, engineering design, thermal engineering, fluid mechanics, materials engineering, advanced manufacturing, aeronautical and automotive engineering, and industrial engineering. FME provides a wide variety of excellent instruction, research opportunities, resources, and facilities to its students. Currently, FME offers the following postgraduate programmes:
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FME) offers 8 accredited BEng programmes and 1 BSc programme. All the undergraduate BEng programmes are Mechanical Engineering-based. Students spend the first two years taking the basic mechanical engineering courses and spend the last two years doing their specialization courses.
