Department of Mechanical and Production
We annually send our students for Industrial Training Work-Placement from the first week of Juneto the end of July to industries or businesses of all sizes and dimensions. We also offer our expertise to companies through consultancy besides students' work-placements.
We have a range of industrial partners to provide support for:
- Guest Lectures
- Group Design Projects
- Research Projects
We work closely with National Council for Higher Education and local industries to ensure that our degrees are relevant to the needs of industry.
At the department we realised that Industrial Placement promotes and develops long-term strategic teaching and research alliances between higher education institutions and industry. It plays a crucial role in promoting and facilitating practical training by providing students the opportunity to apply advanced knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom to real world situations and also help students gain exposure to practical work experience which a knowledge institution (University) may not accord.
