" It matters little how much equipment we use;

It matters much that we be masters of all we do use "

           Our degrees are designed to be relevant to the real world of industry and the needs of today's engineers. Teaching is underpinned by up-to-date laboratory and computing facilities. The department has up-to date facilities for conducting experiments to complement the theory taught in lectures. These facilities are also used by the faculty to do research in their respective specializations. The laboratories are well equipped with modern equipment under the supervision of qualified technical support staff. Equipment in the various laboratories trains the students to expose practical knowledge and illustrate the most important concepts in mechanical engineering.
