Faculty of Engineering (FoE)

Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering, UWI Mona. This is an expansion of the Faculty of Engineering, St Augustine Campus, Trinidad and Tobago.

Biomedical EngineeringNew

Biomedical engineering is an interdisciplinary field in which engineering techniques are applied to solve problems in medicine and healthcare technologies. Biomedical engineers use microcomputers, lasers, and other materials to develop and improve medical research equipment that are used to diagnose or treat health problems. They may be involved in the design and engineering of medical products and equipment, for which they must have a firm understanding of biomechanics and neurophysiology. Areas of specialization are usually pursued at the graduate level and include the following areas: Bioinstrumentation; Biomechanics; Clinical Engineering; Systems Physiology; Biomaterials; and Rehabilitation engineering. Read more!

Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is primarily concerned with the design, construction and maintenance of man-made structures placed on the Earth’s surface. Its successful practice requires the efficient application of mathematics and physics along with proper accounts and financial practices. The BSc in Civil Engineering provides core competency in the essential engineering sub-disciplines and project management, and offers a wide choice of specialization within any of the five sub-disciplines in the final year of the programme. These sub-disciplines are highway, soils, structures, concrete and environment.  Two coursework-based one-year courses are assigned at level two in structural designs and civil engineering designs. There is a capstone 1-year project during the final year coupled with a special investigative project. Read more!

Computer Systems EngineeringDiscontinued

The BSc in Computer Systems Engineering is discontinued and will no longer be offered by the University of the West Indies at Mona.

Electrical Power Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Electrical Power Engineering is designed to serve students who are desirous of pursuing a career path in electrical power generation, transmission and distribution.  It offers in-depth study of the generation of electricity from fossil fuel (oil, coal and gas), renewable sources (sun, wind, biomass, etc.) and nuclear energy. This 3-year programme is structured so that during the first year students are exposed to introductory courses in engineering physics and thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, programming, engineering mathematics, electronics, electrical circuits and electrical power systems. The second year courses introduce students to the core concepts of electricity generation. These concepts are further explored in laboratory and project courses, with an advanced engineering mathematics course providing the necessary mathematical rigour. The final year has a combination of core courses project and electives. The core consists of courses in electrical power systems and power distribution, engineering management and entrepreneurship, electromagnetism and a year-long capstone project.  Read more!

Electronics Engineering

The BSc. Electronics Engineering is a 3-year programme with matriculation requirements of passes in mathematics and physics in the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE), or Cambridge Advanced Levels, or Associate Degrees for Community colleges, or equivalent. The programme is structured so that during the first year students are exposed to foundation courses in engineering physics, computer science and mathematics, along with introductory courses in electronics and electrical circuits.  Read more!
