Engineering Undergraduate Programs

Welcome To METU NCC Mechanical Engineering Program

Mechanical Engineering is a creative profession concerned with the design of devices, machines, processes and systems that involve mechanical work and its conversion from and into different forms of energy. It includes the conversion of chemical, thermal and nuclear energy into mechanical energy through engines and power plants; transporting energy using devices like heat exchan gers, gear transmissions, mechanisms, pipelines and energy utilization to perform a variety of tasks involving transportation vehicles, manufacturing tools and equipment, and household devices. In short, Mechanical Engineering is the broadest and most versatile branch of engineering profession.

The mission of METU NCC Mechanical Engineering Program is:

  • to educate individuals to become creative, inquisitive , industrious in both national and international arenas, equipped with global knowledge and abilities, and able to be leaders and pioneers in their field ;
  • to perform research and development activities that will contribute science and technology;
  • to lead and to pioneer in related fields.

 

With this mission in mind, the graduates of the Mechanical Engineering Program of the METU NCC are engineering professionals who:

  • are preferred in the fields of advanced technologies and R&D studies, become pioneers and leaders,
  • continue on their self-development by attending career-related training and/or graduate programs,
  • are responsive to individuals , society and environment in their working life.

 

The curriculum of the Mechanical Engineering Program is planned to provide a balanced course schedule for students with a variety of courses in basic sciences, engineering sciences and applications, and other related areas. The curriculum includes basic science courses in the first year, fundamental engineering courses in the second year , core mechanical engineering courses in the third year, and applications of mechanical engineering in the fourth year. A variety of courses covering basic and specialized subjects in Mechanics, Design and Production, Thermal and Fluid Sciences, Theory and Dynamics of Machines are offered.

Career Opportunities

Mechanical engineering is one of the most wide-ranging engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers work in almost all industries, irrespective of their main field of interest. Mechanical engineers are usually needed wherever there is production. Therefore, mechanical engineers make up a considerable portion of all the engineers working in other industries like electric and electronics, chemical, construction, and mining. Certainly, mechanical engineers work in factories related to their own field of interest like automotive, machine tools, household goods, heating-ventilating and air conditioning, textile, steel, construction and agricultural machinery, power plants and many more. Mechanical engineers who graduate from METU Northern Cyprus Campus are able to find jobs easily in any of these varied opportunities. Graduates of METU Northern Cyprus Campus Mechanical Engineering Program may also pursue an academic career in leading universities in Turkey or abroad as a result of their broad knowledge and analytical perspective.
