Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (4 years)

Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (4 years)

Description

Mechanical Engineering is a profession that concerns itself with mechanical design, energy conversion, fuel and combustion technologies, heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration systems, fire-protection systems, heat transfer, materials, noise control and acoustics, manufacturing processes, rail transportation, automatic control, product safety and reliability, solar energy, and technological impacts to society.

Mechanical engineers study the behavior of materials when forces are applied to them, such as the motion of solids, liquids, gases, and heating and cooling of object and machines. Using these basic building blocks, mechanical engineers design vehicles, trains, airplanes, power plants, furnaces, cold storage plants, air-conditioning systems, intelligent machines, and robots.

Professionals who are in this area also work in various fields such as jet engine design, submarines, hot air balloons, textiles and new materials, medical and hospital equipment, refrigerators, and other home appliances. Anything that is mechanical or must interact with another machine or human being is within the broad scope of mechanical engineering.

Career Opportunities

The BS in Mechanical Engineering Program of the University of Santo Tomas equips its graduates with technical knowledge and up-to-date skills that will lead them to the following career opportunities: 

    • Consultation, valuation, investigation, and management services requiring mechanical engineering knowledge;
    • Engineering design, preparation of plans, specifications, and project studies or estimates for mechanical equipment, machinery, or processes of any mechanical works, projects, or plants;
    • Management or supervision of the erection, installation, alteration, testing, and commissioning of mechanical equipment, machinery, or processes in mechanical works, projects, or plants;
    • Management or supervision of the manufacture, sale, supply, or distribution of mechanical equipment, machinery, or processes in mechanical works, projects or plants;
    • Teaching of mechanical engineering professional subjects or subjects in the Mechanical Engineering licensure examination in government-recognized and accredited engineering schools; and
    • Employment in government as a professional mechanical engineer or registered mechanical engineer if the nature and character of his work is in line with his profession and requires professional knowledge of the science of mechanical engineering. 

Student Experience and Support

The Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy program provides not just theoretical input, but also practical applications of learned concepts and skills to best prepare students for the world of work. To do so, the program uses facilities such as laboratories for their learning experiences.

The University of Santo Tomas provides student services that cater to academic, spiritual, and wellness concerns of students. These support units are found in the different parts of the campus and can be accessed by Thomasians. When the University shifted to distance learning, the services also transitioned to online services to continue addressing the needs of Thomasians.
