Course Brief

Mechanical principles have been crucial for engineers to convert the energy produced by burning oil and gas into systems to propel, steer and stop our automobiles, aircraft and ships, amongst thousands of other applications. The knowledge and application of these mechanical principles is still the essential underpinning science of all machines in use today or being developed into the latest technology.


The aim of this unit is to introduce students to the essential mechanical principles associated with engineering applications.
Topics included in this unit are: behavioural characteristics of static, dynamic and oscillating engineering systems including shear forces, bending moments, torsion, linear and angular acceleration, conservation of energy and vibrating systems; and the movement and transfer of energy by considering parameters of mechanical
power transmission systems.

On successful completion of this unit students will be able to explain the underlying principles, requirements and limitations of mechanical systems.

  • This course is offered in 45 hours.
  • BTEC Higher National Diploma (HND) in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering)

    The Pearson BTEC Higher National Diploma (HND) in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) programme will develop students into highly trained, competent professionals, who are able to meet the demands of employers in the various engineering sectors. This qualification also serves as the next step for students completing the SBCS Matriculation to HND (Engineering) programme and are interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree programme.


    Why choose the HND in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering)?

    • Recognition: This is an Internationally recognized qualification, recognized in more than 70 countries worldwide.
    • Final Year Entry: Graduates of this programme gain direct access to the final year of an undergraduate degree programme such as the University of Greenwich BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering programme.
    • Career focused: The curriculum was developed to meet the needs of the current marketplace after consultation with employers, students, and professional bodies.
    • Practical hands-on training: Emphasis is placed on practical training and the application of the knowledge taught.

    Why study Mechanical Engineering at SBCS?

    • Instructors are certified, highly skilled and experienced practitioners who bring their knowledge and work experience to the classroom.
    • Modern, fully equipped labs. You learn using the same equipment you will encounter in the field.
    • Convenient class schedules. Work, Earn and Study at the same time. Classes are offered on a part-time basis, which allows working individuals to balance their work and educational needs.
