This program combines the traditional, new, and emerging fields of mechanical engineering such as mechanics, thermofluid sciences, power systems, mechatronics, robotics, nanotechnology, and renewable energy systems. It also allows students to learn how to design and implement mechatronic and robotic systems. In the final year of their study, the students undertake a research project and undergo an on-the-job training based on their chosen tracking, which could either be in mechatronics engineering, automotive engineering, or refrigeration and air-conditioning engineering.
Graduates of this program have a good preparation for professional practice in the areas of manufacturing, operation, maintenance, design, research and management, and for graduate studies as well.
To attain its vision, the school commits to:
Develop excellent academic programs that respond to the rapidly changing needs of both the local and global communities.
Conduct relevant and cutting-edge research and development projects in various fields of mechanical engineering that have an immediate impact on society.
Undertake community extension projects that uplift the living conditions of the marginalized and preserve the environment.
Produce graduates who are technically competent and imbued with Mapúa's core values of discipline, excellence, commitment, integrity, and relevance.
