Mechanical engineering deals with concepts relating to machines. The work of a mechanical engineer involves research, designing, development and testing mechanical devices such as refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment, machine tools, elevators and escalators, factory equipment, robots and complex machinery.


A diploma in will provide students with fundamental knowledge and core skills in working in mechanical engineering work environment. Some of the typical subjects found in a Diploma programs include:

Engineering Mathematics | Electrical Technology | Mechanics of Machines| Mechanical Design | Properties of Materials | Thermodynamics | Fluid Mechanics | Structural Studies | Hydraulics | Physics | Engineering Dynamics | Circuit Theory | Technical English |

Duration and Fees

The Diploma in Mechanical Engineering usually takes 2.5 years to complete. Majority of Malaysian Universities charges a fee between RM25,000 – RM35,000.

Career Opportunities

A diploma in this field will provide students with a solid foundation, knowledge and skills in the field. There is increasing demand for mechanical engineers to design, test and manufacture different types of machinery across industries such as automobiles, health care, manufacturing, oil and gas, aeronautical, energy and utilities, and agricultural industry.
Mechanical engineers may work in operations, maintenance, administrators or managers, research and development, analysis and testing, installation and even sales and marketing.
