The B.Sc. Eng. (Hons.) degree programme is of four years duration. The specific field of specialisation is identified by the students at the end of a common programme in the first semester of study. The selection for a particular study programme is based on the students’ preference and their performance at the Semester 1 examinations.
From Semester 2 onwards Mechanical Engineering students are offered field specific course modules. The course adopts a semester system to match with the current trends in the education system around the world and the industry. Minor revisions to the course contents are being carried out periodically based on the student / staff feedback and the comments made by the personnel from the industry during Department Industry Consultative Board (DICB) meetings. Therefore, the curriculum can be regarded as up-to-date and relevant.
Accreditation and Quality Assurance
B.Sc. Engineering degree programme is accredited by the Institution of Engineers Sri Lanka (IESL). In addition, the Mechanical Engineering degree programme has obtained international recognition through the accreditation of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, UK (IMechE) and Washington Accord.
