Mechanical Engineering Department

Mechanical Engineering is one of the broadest professions. The women and men in the mechanical engineering profession work in almost every industry, in private practice, in government, in medicine, in law, and in universities. Mechanical engineers touch almost every aspect of technology. They create machines, products and technological systems that benefit society. Their work can take them around the world - anywhere there are machines, there are mechanical engineers.

The Mechanical Engineering program in DLSU is among the most advanced and up-to-date ME programs in the country in line with the demands of the information age. It is fully complemented by a highly effective faculty, up-to-date teaching facilities - laboratory, computers and Internet, and library facilities, research orientation through the thesis program, and underscored by relevant industrial practice through the Industry-Academe Linkage. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) bestowed the Center of Excellence award on this program for two straight years.

The curriculum has been re-designed to emphasize three areas of concentration in the final year - mechatronics, energy and environment technology, and mechanical design and analysis.

  • Mechatronics. Mechatronics is an integration of mechanical, electronics, computer, and controls engineering. The key mechatronic areas include sensors and instrumentation systems, drives and actuators, and computer-aided engineering design.
  • Mechanical Design. Mechanical Design includes design of automotive mechanical systems, industrial and agro-industrial machineries and equipment.
  • Energy and Environmental Technology. The area of Energy and Environmental Technology integrates the knowledge acquired in the fields of thermal, fluid, and environmental sciences, power engineering, economics and management.

The job opportunities for mechanical engineers are outstanding. This means greater opportunities to do interesting work and the flexibility to do the work you like to do. Since machines and mechanical systems are almost everywhere, mechanical engineers can usually find employment where they want to live.


Mission


To produce technically competent and innovative service-driven global leaders with integrity in the field of Mechanical Engineering (ME) and in society in general.


Vision


The Mechanical Engineering Department of De La Salle University will be a resource of the industry and government with highly competent faculty members and staff that together produces well-trained, service-driven, and internationally recognized ME graduates.
