Discipline: Professions and Applied Sciences



This project was proposed for the development of a reviewer manual in Mechanical Engineering (ME) with theories and 5,001 solved problems and answered questions (elements) for the computerized mechanical engineering licensure examination. The manual contains all the subject areas required in the curriculum prescribed and specified by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) through the Board of Mechanical Engineering (BME), covering Mathematics, Basic Engineering, Engineering Economy, Industrial Plant Design, Power Plant Design, Machine Design, Machine Shop Practice, ME Law, Contracts, and Professional Ethics. Problems and questions were developed and formulated based on the type of past examinations given by the Board of Mechanical Engineering Examiners. Solved problems and answered questions in the previous Licensure examinations are also included and presented in the reviewer manual.

The manual is designed as a review material to be used by ME graduates who are preparing for the licensure examination and by ME graduating students who are taking in-house review program. Furthermore, this could be used by practicing mechanical engineers as a reference material.
