About the Course
Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and broadest among engineering disciplines. The application base of Mechanical engineering field of study is diverse and its scope is continuously expanding beyond the traditional boundaries. Mechanical engineering applies the principles of physics, materials science and mathematics to the design, development, research, evaluation, manufacture, installation, testing, operation, maintenance and management of mechanical systems. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product life-cycle management to design, analyze and develop manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, and others.
Mechanical engineers are employed in automotive, aerospace, chemical, computer, electronic, industrial machinery, manufacturing, mining, oceanographic, petroleum, pharmaceutical, power, printing, publishing, and textile industries. They use engineering principles to provide efficient solutions for the development of processes and products, ranging from small component designs to extremely large plants, machinery or vehicles.
Mechanical engineers are focusing their attention towards new areas of research such as nanotechnology, development of composite materials, biomedical applications, environmental conservation, etc. To summarize, the field of Mechanical engineering offers a wide bouquet of job options to students, who are looking for a stable, stimulating and challenging career.
