## Requirements To Study Mechanical Engineering In Botswana

**What is Mechanical Engineering?**

Mechanical engineering is the study of physical machines that may involve force and movement. It is an engineering branch that combines engineering physics and mathematics principles with materials science, to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems.

#### Requirements To Study Mechanical Engineering In Botswana

A National Senior Certificate or an equivalent qualification, with a bachelor’s degree endorsement, or an equivalent qualification, with an achievement level of at least 4 for English (home language or first additional language) and 5 for Mathematics or Technical Mathematics, and 5 for Physical Sciences or Technical.

** Frequently Asked Questions**

**Can mechanical engineers do without maths?**

AICTE: One-third of engineering courses do not need maths in Class XII. CHENNAI: Maths in Class XII is no longer mandatory to apply for one-third of engineering courses, including architecture, biotechnology and fashion technology, the All India Council for Technical Education announced on Tuesday.

**How much are mechanical engineers paid in Botswana?**

The gross salary range for people working in Botswana in Mechanical Engineering is typically from 2,744 BWP (minimum salary) to 8,056 BWP (highest average, actual maximum salary is higher).

**Is mechanical engineering a 4 year course?**

Students typically take four years to complete the program. The mechanical engineering curriculum builds on the basic foundation of mathematics and physical sciences learned in the first three semesters, and then focuses on engineering design and analysis in mechanical, thermal, fluids, and energy systems.

**Do mechanical engineers use a lot of math?**

Most of the projects you will work on involve math. Mechanical engineers use math for many different reasons like using physics formulas to determine things like energy and force, using algebra to design suspension systems or developing algorithms for computer software.

**Is mechanical engineering a difficult degree?**

The field of mechanical engineering ranks as one of the hardest majors in part because of its technical requirements. Students must take advanced mathematics and science courses as part of their training.

**How many years course is mechanical engineering?**

Mechanical engineering degrees usually last for three or four years at undergraduate level and one or two at master’s level.

**Which engineering uses the least math?**

It’s considered one of the easier engineering majors that you can study though, because it’s not as focused on advanced math and physics.

**Can a non science student study engineering?**

Non-science students having Math in class XII are eligible to apply for the Computer Science BTech programmes offered by the Institute. Admission to the programme is offered on JEE Main and UCEED.

**How many subjects are in mechanical engineering?**

As in engineering there are 8 semesters so that average 40 subjects are there during the mechanical engineering. The description of these subjects given briefly below. In first year there should some basic subjects like maths 1,2,3 and also basics of all streams of engineering is learned during the first year.

**Is mechanical engineering a science or math?**

Mechanical engineering subjects include mathematics, physical science, engineering and design. If you take your degree in mechanical engineering technology, the focus is more on practical application than theory. Even so, math classes remain among the most important mechanical engineering courses.

**Can I do mechanical engineering with C?**

The candidate must have attained the following minimum grades at KSCE or equivalent qualifications: Mathematics (B+), Physics (B+), Chemistry (B), English (B) Mean Grade of C (Plain) at KCSE or equivalent with Higher Diploma of credit pass in relevant field of study from a recognized institution.

**What is the minimum requirements for certificate in mechanical engineering?**

Candidates should have a minimum of two (2) principal passes in Mathematics and Physics and a subsidiary level pass in Chemistry with a credit pass in English at O-Level. Candidates with Diploma (Technical Education Project) in Mechanical Engineering of Kenya Polytechnical University or an equivalent qualification.
