    Course Content

    This HND Mechanical Engineering is concerned with design, development, installation, operation and maintenance of just about anything that has moveable parts. Mechanical Engineers apply their creative imaginations and professional skills to combine both theory and practice in a variety of situations. For this, you will need an in-depth understanding of scientific principles and engineering processes. Youll also need to be able to develop solutions to real-life problems in the face of conflicting requirements. Throughout the courses youll study specialist Mechanical Engineering topics including Energy Management and a module in which youll look at the materials and processes that Engineers use every day in their professions.

    The course also includes Business Management for Engineers and a module on Managing People in Engineering which will introduce you to industrial and commercial practice, as well as encourage you to develop your Business and Management skills alongside your Engineering knowledge.

    On completion of this course you will be well equipped with a good knowledge of electronics systems design techniques and their applications in areas such as control, telecommunications and consumer products.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
