Mechanical Engineering Syllabus

Posted by on Oct 19, 2015 in Mechanical Engineering | 0 comments

This is a simple lead to how the Mechanical Engineering Syllabus looks like from the third semester to the eighth. The first two semesters of the Mechanical Engineering Syllabus are mainly introductions and a reminder of the basics involved in the whole course. The last two semesters are not included in this Mechanical Engineering Syllabus because the units done by students are not general. Students specialize in their last year of the Mechanical Engineering Syllabus. Engineering in Kenya  has more articles.

Conclusion on the Mechanical Engineering Syllabus

In the Mechanical Engineering Syllabus, there are some units that may seem irrelevant e.g. the economics unit  in the second year. The bonus units depend on the university and also the educational system of the country in question. In Kenya, the Mechanical Engineering Syllabus must have a HIV and AIDS unit since HIV and AIDS is an emerging issue in the country. These bonus units should therefore be appreciated in the Mechanical Engineering Syllabus.
