Welcome to the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering

The Department runs a 4-year degree programme leading to the award of a Bachelor of Science (BSc.) degree in Agricultural Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The Department was established in the 2013/2014 academic year and admitted its first batch of students into the Department in the same year of establishment.

The Department programmes have been designed to produce the next generation of mechanical and agricultural engineers with the necessary knowledge and skills to provide cutting edge solutions to everyday issues confronting society. In addition, students are equipped with the necessary engineering tools and entrepreneurial skills that will make them highly integral and useful for industries in Ghana in particular and the world at large.

The Department’s areas of specializations are within (1) Thermo fluids and Energy Systems Engineering; (2) Applied Mechanics; (3) Automobile Engineering and (4) Design and Manufacturing Engineering. Students enrolled in the Mechanical Engineering programme from first year to third year will have the opportunity to study basic core courses in all the four main sections. However, in the final year, students are allowed to select only one section for specialization that will define the student’s unique area of interest.
