The taught courses are assessed largely through quizzes, class test, homework and an end of semester examination. The aim of the department is to provide a broad-based education and training in Mechanical Engineering Sciences and their applications that will enable graduates to meet the challenges of the engineering profession in Ghana and elsewhere. Graduates of the department will be equipped with the skill to design, manufacture and assemble mechanical components and systems; solve engineering problem by analysis and empirical methods, including application of the computer. Graduates will also be able to install, operate, maintain and service plant/machinery, tools and equipment. They will also prepare and read engineering drawings, prepare and present engineering reports and apply relevant social science principles to manage engineering organizations and maintain cordial human relations.

The department is manned by competent academic staff with specialities in the fields of Thermal and Fluid Engineering, Heat Transfer, Solid Mechanics, Machine Design and Production Engineering. Individual lecturers are heavily involved in research in their respective fields and have publications to this effect. The department currently runs a 3-year training programme for selected mining companies.
