The NWU’s School of Mechanical Engineering offers two different undergraduate degrees: 

Mechanical Engineering

The Mechanical Engineering degree is a dynamic and cutting-edge programme that positions students at the forefront of transformative innovations. Our Mechanical Engineering curriculum is carefully crafted to strike a well-rounded balance between rigorous training in the fundamental sciences, engineering principles, and the crucial domain of design. Emphasizing the importance of creative design, our program equips engineers with the skills needed to apply their knowledge effectively and devise solutions to complex problems. With a commitment to excellence, we foster an environment that encourages both technical proficiency and the cultivation of creative problem-solving capabilities, ensuring our students are well-prepared for the ever-evolving challenges in the field of Mechanical Engineering.

Electromechanical Engineering

Electromechanical engineers bring the principles of electrical and mechanical engineering to the workplace. The main objectives of an electromechanical engineer are to manage and control the behaviour of various energy transfer interfaces, including electrical, mechanical, and chemical processes and machinery within an industrial environment. The fundamental electrical and mechanical knowledge will enable the electromechanical engineer to effectively manage a multidisciplinary plant or factory on a practical level and will assist the engineer in governing health, safety, and quality principles in the industrial working environment.
