Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
The Bachelor of Engineering, henceforth referred to as BEng in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering is not a completely new program and it has been operating, under the name Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering, since August 2011. The first batch of students graduated in 2015, with the second batch following in June 2016. Students’ interest in this program has increased over the years reaching a currently stable number of around 40 new admissions per year. As revealed by the external advisors in the Industrial Advisory Board in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, a high demand for mechanical and aerospace engineers is anticipated in the forthcoming years. The mechanical & aerospace engineering graduates are expected to be both academically and technically competent to meet the requirements of the industry worldwide. Recent graduates of the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering program either go on further study or enter into the relevant work force shortly after graduation. Nazarbayev University has adopted the Bologna Accord and the School of Engineering therefore uses the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Most courses to be studied at Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, and Year 4 are of standard credit value carrying 6 ECTS each, except for some courses, such as Calculus I, etc. which carry ECTS other than 6. A student is expected to spend about 25 to 30 hours of study per semester (inclusive of class contact and other study effort) for 1 ECTS. The following Table lists the subjects, their ECTS values, and the category they belong to (Compulsory, Optional, or Elective). All discipline-specific courses shown as compulsory are non-deferrable and must be taken in accordance to the progression pattern. The courses offered will be updated from time to time according to the need of society and the profession.
