Mechanical engineering covers a diverse range of engineering fields with five major areas of study: thermodynamics, solid mechanics and dynamics, fluid mechanics, designand manufacturing.Examples of more specialized areas of work are combustion engines, acoustics, aerodynamics, biomechanical engineering, environmental engineering, energy conversion systems, and material science including fracture and fatigue, robotics, and vehicle design. The B.Sc in ME program initially exposes students to a wide range of topics covering the fundamentals. Advanced courses and electives provide more specialized knowledge and emphasize applications. Many courses include experimental lab sections to give students hands-on experience with current engineering and measurement equipment. Throughout the program, several courses are devoted to design in mechanical engineering. Students apply engineering principles to challenging design projects. Working in groups and individually, students develop communication skills through oral and written presentations.

The benefits - on leaving the course - you will have:

An ability to apply knowledge of math, engineering, and science

An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realisticconstraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety,manufacturability, and sustainability

An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global,economic, environmental, and societal context

A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, lifelong learning

An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

Career opportunities

After attaining the required educational qualification to become a mechanical engineer, there are a number of profiles that you can take up. Based on your choice and interest, you can select a job profile that comes under the umbrella of mechanical engineering. Since mechanical engineering is a broad field, you can explore the following job options.


Aerospace Engineer: It is a profile that deals with the maintenance and manufacturing of aircraft and airports keeping in consideration the technical aspects involved.

Maintenance Engineer: The role of a maintenance engineer is to keep a check of the functioning of the machines and equipment. To check the continuous running of the machinery and equipment, maintenance engineers are hired.

Automotive Engineer: Designing and development of mechanical components and machines related to automobiles is the functionality of an automotive engineer. An automotive engineer typically focuses on research and development, design and production.

Control and Instrumentation Engineer: Often referred as C&I Engineer, these are professionals that deal with the designing, development, installation, management, and maintenance of equipment that are used for monitoring and controlling machines and systems involved in the work of engineering.

Contracting Civil Engineer: A contracting civil engineer is the one who deals with the consultancy involved in the field of construction and designing of projects like buildings, highway construction, dams and canals construction, etc. They are responsible for checking the ongoing on-site construction and work in conjunction with consulting engineers.

Nuclear Engineer: These engineers provide with technical support to the nuclear power stations. Their role is to design, build, run or dismantle the machinery of the nuclear power station. A nuclear engineer can be a reactor operator, process engineer, quality engineer, project manager or instrumentation and control engineer.

Mechanical Engineer: A mainstream job profile framed for the designing, crafting, developing, maintaining and managing various machines and equipment are covered by the mechanical engineers. The job profiles for mechanical engineers ranges from designing, production, analysis, and testing to installation, maintenance, and structural engineering.

If you have a real passion for turning yourself into a well-rounded Engineering graduate with a strong expertise on the Mechanical Engineering fields, our B.Sc in ME program is just the right choice for you. Make haste, apply right today for our next intake.

Message from the program head

Department of Mechanical Engineering in University of Creative Technology, Chittagong (UCTC) has a strong reputation in Bangladesh for its undergraduate program. In recent years, our department has developed its resources for making a competitive and superb undergraduate program. We are strengthening our position as a major department of excellence where scientific research is conducted along with undergraduate academic activities in accordance with technological advances.

The undergraduate program in Mechanical Engineering at UCTC is recognized for its solid background which has instilled a strong work ethic, as well as a ‘can-do attitude’ among its graduates. Not only the current students but also the abiding appreciation of outgoing and former students play an important role in our mechanical engineering department. We are maintaining a continually updated and smart undergraduate mechanical engineering program to better serve today’s students. Consequently, the department is shaping highly trained mechanical engineers for placement in industries nationally and internationally as well as MSc, PhD candidates at competitive universities throughout the world.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering continues to enhance its boundaries by offering cutting-edge technology related under-graduate courses. The department has skilled faculty members who have graduate degrees from abroad, especially from North America and Asia to share their latest theoretical and practical knowledge with our undergraduate students. That’s how our students are going to put their foot print in emerging technologies such as material science, alternative forms of energy production, storage and distribution, and interdisciplinary topics. To fulfil laboratory works, several laboratories are already developed such as Advance computation and simulation lab, machine shop, strength of mechanics lab, Fluid mechanics lab, theory of machine lab and others.

I am excited to see what the future holds for our department and invite you to join us on our incredible journey. If you are a prospective undergraduate, you'll find that the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University of Creative Technology, Chittagong is a great place.
