Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) is a five-year program that deals with the design, development, installation, operation, and maintenance of machinery, engines, and structures used in industrial, biomedical, instrumentation and transportation systems. The program discusses the study of the conversion of thermal and chemical energy into mechanical work through engines and power plants while teaching students the proper utilization of these energies, forces, and structures to successfully perform a variety of tasks.


Recommended Senior High School Strand

Students who want to pursue a degree in Mechanical Engineering are encouraged to take the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) strand under the Academic Track. They will learn topics relevant that to their degree that will be useful in their college life.


Subjects and Curriculum

  • Advanced Mathematics for Mechanical Engineering
  • Methods of Research for Mechanical Engineering
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Machine Elements
  • Materials Science and Engineering for Mechanical Engineering
  • Thermodynamics 1 and 2
  • Combustion Engineering
  • Heat Transfer

Admission Requirements

Qualifications

  • The student must be a high school graduate.
However, if they were not able to graduate high school, they may opt to take the Alternative Learning System (ALS) and pass the Philippine Educational Placement Test (PEPT) to qualify for college; the availability of courses for PEPT passers depend on the university.
  • The students must pass the College Admissions Test of the university.

Basic Requirements

  • Form 138 - High School Report Card (Original and Photocopy)
  • Recommendation letter from High school principal and guidance counselor
  • Most recent medical and dental health record
  • Copy of NSO Certified birth certificate
  • Certificate of Good moral character
  • Copy of honorable dismissal
  • Copy of high school diploma
  • (1) Latest 2”x2” ID Picture

Program Outcome

Graduates of Mechanical Engineering are expected to be able to:

  • Solve complex engineering problems using the application of mathematics and science knowledge
  • Conduct engineering procedures professionally and ethically
  • Understand and explain the significance of engineering solutions globally, economically, and environmentally
  • Use up to date techniques, skills, and engineering tools for mechanical engineering procedures
  • Apply engineering and management principles both as a member and a leader in a team

On-The-Job Training/Internship

During the fourth year of the program, students are required to attend an On the Job Training (OJT) in a company, organization, or agency that specializes in mechanical engineering practices and procedures. 

Students are given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in an actual work setting. Usually, universities require them to submit a written report on their tasks, learning experiences, and hours rendered. Their work performance will also be evaluated by their immediate managers and will be submitted to their respective OJT coordinator. The number of hours required may differ in each university.


Board Exam

To become a Licensed Mechanical Engineer in the Philippines, a graduate of Mechanical Engineering needs to pass the Mechanical Engineering Licensure Examination. The examination is conducted by the Board of Mechanical Engineering under the supervision of the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC). It is scheduled twice a year in the months of March and September. 


Career Opportunities

Graduates of Mechanical Engineering may pursue a career path in various development and manufacturing companies or government agencies that needs specialized Mechanical Engineering services. They may apply for roles such as junior mechanical engineer, associate mechanical engineer, technical support engineer, product engineer, junior program analyst, automotive engineer, maintenance engineer, durability and corrosion engineer, instrumentation and controls engineer, or computer systems engineer.

Reviews of BS in Mechanical Engineering graduates:

A. M.
◈ Studied BS Mechanical Engineering
◈ At Adamson University
◈ Graduated 2003

list bulletWhy did I choose Mechanical Engineering: I want to become an engineer and this one is has the most appeal to me.

list bulletAbout my college education: ME integrates physics, engineering and material science in order to design and manufacture different mechanical systems. We studied Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Process control, Instrumentation, Bioengineering, and so much more. It was difficult, especially if you have tough subjects together in a semester. You need to prioritise which one to study first during exam week, or which project to do first. It's normal to fail, but you need to stand up and fight again after each failure.

list bulletMy current job: I am a Forklift operator in a manufacturing company

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: As a forklift operator, I do not apply much of the theories that were taught back in college.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: 9 months

list bulletDo I recommend studying Mechanical Engineering: Yes. It is a good course that gives you good opportunities both here and abroad. Some get lucky and have higher pay than others though. It's just a matter of which company you become employed to.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Study hard and never surrender!
