Mechanical engineering deals with the study, design, construction, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is closely connected with other disciplines of engineering such as materials engineering, metallurgical engineering, aerospace engineering, automotive engineering, and manufacturing engineering.
Process engineering on the other hand is concerned with the design, control, and operation of physical, chemical, and biological processes. Process engineering finds its application in a vast range of industries including chemical, food, petrochemical, biotechnological, mineral processing, materials, and environmental. The two overarching areas of engineering to production engineering and process engineering are mechanical engineering and chemical engineering.
The School of Mechanical and Process Engineering focuses on aspects of engineering that are concerned with mechanical and manufacturing systems on one hand and process engineering on the other hand. The specific areas of study covered are aerospace and aviation engineering, chemical and process engineering, industrial and manufacturing engineering, and mechanical and materials engineering.
