Programmes – Mechanical Engineering Department

Bachelor of Science Honours in Engineering – Mechanical Engineering


The students opting to follow Mechanical Engineering stream have the option to select courses in automobile engineering, manufacturing engineering and combination of both to meet their specific requirements. The theoretical components of these specialisations are amply supported with exposure to practical situations, in reasonably well-equipped laboratories of the department.


Bachelor of Science Honours in Engineering – Mechatronics Engineering


Mechatronics Engineering specialisation is offered by the Department with the objective of producing well trained Mechatronics engineers/technical personnel and was introduced for the first time to the engineering curricula in Sri Lanka. It deals with an integrated design approach involving mechanical, electronic, and controls engineering in finding solutions to the modern industry as well as meeting commercial needs.

Master of Energy Management

The postgraduate Study Programmes conducted by the department are being revised according to SLQF and to meet the current needs. A one- year study programme leading to the award of Master of Energy Management is to be offered in January 2020. This Programme aims to impart necessary specific theoretical knowledge and skills in the area of energy management to the graduates of engineering who aspire to become qualified energy managers or energy auditors.

Master of Science in Industrial Engineering

A two-year study Programme leading to the award of Master of Science in Industrial Engineering is to be offered soon after the approval is obtained from the University Grants commission. The aim of the Study Programme is to provide an opportunity, for the graduates who are working in the industry as Industrial Engineers and Managers or the graduates willing to enter into the decision making level, to obtain a higher qualification in the field of Industrial Engineering. This provides an educational opportunity composed with up-to-date academic content delivered within a well-planned curriculum framework and course syllabuses related to Industrial Engineers.


MPhil and PhD Research Degrees

In addition to the taught masters’programme, the department accepts research students in the areas related to mechanical and mechatronics engineering to read for higher degrees by research leading to the awards of MPhil and PhD.
