Bachelor of Automotive Engineering with Honours (BMCK)

 
Programme Name : Bachelor of Automotive Engineering with Honours
UPU Code : UC6525001 
Short Code : BMCK
Duration : Full Time : (Minimum 4 years and Maximum 6 years)

 

     The curriculum structure for the first two years of Bachelor of Automotive Engineering (BMCG) is to enhance the students’ basic engineering and mathematics knowledge before engaging in more specialized courses in mechanical and automotive engineering. These subjects include Engineering Mathematics, Engineering Materials, Engineering Graphics and CAD, Engineering Mechanics, Differential Equation, Computer Programming, Principles of Electric and Electronics, Principle of Measurements and Instrumentation, and Manufacturing Process. Practical work and workshops are designed to enhance students' knowledge and skills. In addition, students will also study subjects such as Third Language, and Co-Curriculums. 

   Year 2 students will be taking courses in mechanical and automotive engineering. These courses include Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Computer-Aided Design and Manufacturing, Automotive Technology, Mechanical Design, Microprocessor Technology, Solid Mechanics, and Vehicle Electrical & Electronics. In addition, the students will study Engineering Mathematics II. Students will also take the university compulsory courses including Ethnic Relations, Co-Curriculum II, and Technical English. 

    In Year 3, students will study Control Engineering, Heat Transfer, Vehicle Dynamics, Mechanical Vibration, Vehicle System Modeling & Simulation, Internal Combustion Engine, and Engineering Statistics. In addition, students are required to conduct projects in Integrated Design Project I and Integrated Design Project II. Besides that, the students will undertake English for Professional Communication. Students are then required to undergo industrial training for at least 10 weeks, during the short semester (after semester 6) in selected industries. The objectives are to strengthen the engineering knowledge and theory as well as their hands-on skills. It is expected that this training will provide our graduates with enough technical knowledge before advancing into a real career in industry.

      Fourth-year students (final year), who are in their 7th and 8th semester, shall carry out Final Year Project (FYP), programme core and elective courses which are focused on advanced knowledge of Automotive Engineering. The programme core courses include Vehicle Aerodynamics, Vehicle Control System, and Vehicle Autonomous System. The elective courses include Noise, Vibration & Harshness, Vehicle Powertrain Systems, Vehicle Structure Analysis, Vehicle Ergonomics, Electric Propulsion System, and Automotive Manufacturing Systems. In addition, students will also undertake a number of important courses such as Engineering Seminar, Engineer & Society, Entrepreneurship Technology, Critical and Creative Thinking, and Engineering Management & Economy. These courses are designed to provide students with soft skills such as engineering management, entrepreneurship, and moral development programme. The intended outcome is to produce automotive engineering graduates with knowledge in their specialised field, as well as in non-technical fields. 

     The minimum number of credits required for an award of Bachelor of Automotive Engineering is 135. The breakdown of subject categories and credits required are as follows: engineering courses – 102 credits, non-engineering courses – 33 credits.
