Please Enquire For June Intake

Students in Higher Diploma in Mechanical Engineering will develop their core talent for the automated industrial environment. As factories move towards to fewer-humans and more robots, these graduates will be leading the charges to design, build, install and maintain these cutting-edge robots and advanced tech industrialization.

Through this unique programme, students are going to be trained not only 60% in mechanical but also 40% in electrical. A synergy between mechanical, computer and electrical technologies, allows you to develop the electromechanical solutions to industrial problems.

Broaden your engineering expertise to open up a wider range of career opportunities. Students, who finish this course, go on to work in the industries:

  • Robotics R&D – e.g making jumping robots
  • Product Design – e.g how to make this product 
  • Automation – e.g self driving cars, 
  • Factory Automation – e.g making large robotics for human’s job
  • Aviation – e.g moving parts on planes, repair and maintenance


  • Engineering Mathematics 1 & 2
  • Fluid Dynamics
  • Project Management
  • Strength of Materials
  • Energy and Environment
  • Material Science and Manufacturing
  • Engineering Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Internship
Automation is the key now.

Entry Criteria

Applicants must be aged 17 or older are only eligible to enter the Diploma with one of the following qualifications

  • successfully completed Auston’s Enhanced Foundation Programme; or
  • GCE ‘A’ Level with 2 passes; or

In addition to the above requirements, students must have IELTS 5.5 or Wall Street English Level 14.

Mature Candidates

Students who have at least 3 years of relevant work experience and may be admitted on a case by case basis – Minimum 23 years of age, and reference letters from past or present employers.

Internship Partners

All the top engineering programmes require some sort of apprenticeship or internship programme. The reason they do this is to minimize the gap between graduation and real-life engineering.
Here are some of the companies who engage our students with internships:

What Makes Us Different

Problem Based Learning

Our programmes take real life problems and teach them to you as you learn. When you graduate you’ll be ever ready to take on your job.

Interactive Classrooms

In our programmes students interact with students and teachers facilitated. 80% activity by you, 20% activity by us. Why? Because we learn better by ‘doing’.

Future Focused

Our courses extract the core that will be needed for the Robotic-future. Others take 2-3 modules to get to these modules but for us it is built into the first one.


At the end of our course you may progress on to our affiliated campuses in Singapore, Sri Lanka, or to universities in UK, Australia and more
