INTRODUCTION

For the past few decades, industries have evolved and


progressed rapidly. The Ninth Malaysia Plan was drawn in response to the
current global needs and to enable Malaysia to stay competitive in the
world market. Thus, to keep abreast with rapid technological
advancements and evolving requirements in industries today,
Department of Polytechnic Education (DPE) constantly collaborates
with major industry players in the country in developing the respective
curriculum. One of the most important factors driving the growth of
productivity is by having a qualified and talented manpower in order for
the industry to develop and remain competitive in the world market. This
is equally true in industries where there is a rapidly growing demand for
highly competent and technically savvy workforce. The activities of many
industries require increasingly competent technician in engineering
field, particularly in mechanical engineering (manufacturing) .
In response to these issues, Curriculum Development and
Evaluation Division of the Department of Polytechnic Education has
developed and introduced Diploma in Mechanical Engineering
(manufacturing) for polytechnic. This programme aims to prepare
students with knowledge, skills and abilities necessary in the mechanical
engineering industries. To ensure the curriculum content fulfils the
industrial requirement, several key players from related industries have
been involved in the curriculum development process.
Diploma in Mechanical Engineering (manufacturing) for
polytechnic is developed to give balanced emphasis on theoretical and
practical aspects. The programme will take six semesters to complete,
relatively five academic semesters at their respective polytechnics and
one semester of industrial training at relevant industries during the fourth
semester. Students are required to return to their respective
institutions for the completion of the programme in the fifth and sixth
semester.
