Mechanical-Aeronautics at UTM

Degree awarded: Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical-Aeronautics)

The Aeronautical Engineering course was first offered by UTM during the 1980/81 session and was jointly run by UTM and TUDM. Its objective was to fulfill the need for skilled and semi-skilled human resources in the aeronautical field especially in the public sector. TUDM required human resources to operate, maintain, repair, oversee and manage different types of aircraft and UTM had the capability to produce graduates in this field. This need has continued to increase with the development in the airline industry in Malaysia which demands for more trained manpower especially engineers and technical assistants.

The Aeronautical Engineering course in UTM is offered as a specialisation of Mechanical Engineering and covers five main areas namely Aerodynamics, Aircraft Structure, Flight Dynamics and Control, Propulsion and Aircraft Design. Thus, graduates of this programme satisfy the requirement to graduate as an engineer in Mechanical Engineering as well as in the field of specialisation in aeronautics. Apart from TUDM, the Civil Aviation Department requires trained manpower to supervise flying activities in Malaysia.

Other organisations that require graduates in the field of aeronautics include Malaysia Airline System, Air Asia, AIROD, Eagle Aircraft, SME aviation, Malaysia Helicopter Services (MHS), TLDM and PDRM Air Unit. Several other firms also have working opportunities in the airline industry. In the field of academic and research, opportunity is available for aeronautical engineers to serve in any institution that run courses and research in the field of Aeronautics. Several other universities and institutions in Malaysia have started to offer courses in the field of Aeronautics. Due to the rapid expansion in the airline industry, many airline companies, flying clubs and firms are prepared to get involved actively in the airline industry of the country by offering more job opportunities to UTM graduates.

Field Of Study - Aeronautical Engineering

Aeronautical engineering encompasses all aspects of studies related to flying. In this respect, flying includes aerospace flight. The areas of specialisation in Aeronautical Engineering can be divided into the following:-

a) Aerodynamics
Aerodynamics is the relationship between air (wind) and the material (solid) that moves in it. Various principles of Fluid Mechanics are considered in a flying problem. For example, aerodynamic study will determine a suitable shape for an aircraft, missile, etc.

b) Structure
This area will determine the integrity (strength) of a flying body such as an aircraft or a missile. Using dimensions and tolerances, strength of material, shear flow and theory of thin plate, the structure of an aircraft can be determined.

c) Flight Propulsion
Propulsion is a study of an aircraft power plant. This study includes design and selection of appropriate power plant for a particular aircraft. This field has developed vastly since the increase in the cost of petroleum. Engineers have been competing to invent lighter and more economic power plants.

d) Avionics
Avionics is the acronym for ‘Aviation Electronics’. Flying has been facilitated by the use of various electronic devices. Electronic devices which facilitate flying such as radars, ILS (Instrument landing System), ADF (Automatic Direction Finder), etc were specifically invented by the Avionic Engineer. The Avionic Engineer will also ensure that the radar fitted on an aircraft will function satisfactorily.

e) Management
The aircraft industry has expanded tremendously during this decade. The industry requires experts to manage and administer its operation smoothly. Regulations concerning the construction and operations of aircraft have been so devised in order to avoid accidents and mistakes which may sacrifice lives.

f) Transportation
Apart from transporting passengers, an aircraft is also used as cargo carriers, ambulance, etc. Study in this area trains transportation experts to modify flight schedule and load so that the aircraft can be used economically.

g) Flight Regulations
To avoid accidents, the flying fraternity has formulated special laws for flying. Briefly the laws are divided into two, namely military flight regulations and public flight regulations.

h) Materials for Aircraft
This field focuses its study on selecting and determining metals, plastic composites, etc, which are suitable for building an aircraft, rocket, etc.

apakah itu.. seekor binatangkah atau nama makanan yang sangat enak
actuallty PALAPES is standing for Pasukan Latihan Pegawai Simpanan
and i had joined PALAPES UDARA or its comercial name is Air Force
Palapes di Usm terdiri daripada tiga jenis iaitu Palapes Darat, Palapes laut
dimana kedua-duanya berpusat di USM campus induk
manakala Palapes Udara pula berpusat di USM campus kejuruteraan
kenapa aku terpikir nak masuk yek...
actually since aku kat matriks lagi
aku dah pasang angan2 nak join Palapes ni
yelah seronok mendengar cerita dari Cikgu Fadhilah
tambahan pula pelbagai perkara baru aku boleh balajar
before aku disahkan senagai salah satu ahli Palapes
pelbagai prosedur yang perlu dilakukan
yalah palapes nih bukan calang2 skuad
dengar nama penuh pun ngerikan betul tak....
selepas menerima surat panggilan
kami diminta hadir ke kompleks sukan
untuk menjalani ujian kecergasan
alah macam ujian yang kita selalu buat dekat sekolah time PJ dulu
nasib baiklah aku baru ba…

apa ye bezanya hubby, darling and sweetheart yer...tertanya=tanya gak aku mase nengot tajuk tuh.... walau dengan penuh sinis dier cuba terangkan aper bezanya tapi memang banyak maksud dalamannya....renung-renungkanlah dan selamat bergelak..hahaha..
nukilan ni lansung takder kaitan dengan aku nyer feeling wat masa nih..jangan salah paham ok...

dulu i benci..

This just humble tips that I initially wanna share with my lovely sister and her friends. (for convenience , I will refer my sister and her friends as my students from now and onward). This slides I re share as a reference for them and initially taken from my slides when I did some explanation to them in my class. The tips in the slides were summary for what I had experienced and also from some latest input that I got from the expert. For a record, I'm not a teacher because I don't have any certificate but I just had my experiences as a Band 4 scorer in MUET. In addition, the tips I gathered for my students where most of them did not have a proper English education and I try my best to share tips that easily to understand and follow. 
Because I'm afraid that some of my students did not understand the slides, I will try to explain in bilingual for their sake. 

I'm pretty sure that most of my students did not watch this kind of drama because I did not get any response w…


Dear Mira, you are the only one who knows how truly crazy I am. You know me out and in. We have met when I am still an innocent girl (you have to admit it ) before I experienced that so called "culture shock" during our matriculation life. You know how drastically I changed. You know how crazy I can be literally. You know how havoc I can be. You know how moody I can be. But you never afraid of it. Instead, you help me to control my craziness and my mood swing. And thanks to you, I always save myself from a big humiliation. I don't know whether you still remember those moments. The recent one, surely the call that you receive on 4 am. When you strongly reject my crazy intention to make my confession. Fuhh, I really owed you the big one. 

Dear Mira, if one day, you and I never spoke to each other anymore, may ALLAH forbid it, I have to ask a lawyer to interdict you because you know lots of my secrets. Hehehehehehe. Just kidding. A million memories, thousand jokes (especia…
