Again a member of the ‘core branch’ of engineering. Mechanical engineers are required by almost all the industries. So, the job prospects after graduation are excellent and thus this branch is also an ‘evergreen branch’.
Almost all of the Engineering colleges in India offer this course. A new course named Mechatronics Engineering has been introduced. It comprises of elements of both Mechanical and Electronics Engineering. This is also a top branch.
Mechanical Engineering covers topics such as- Engineering Mathematics, Physics, Fluid Mechanics, Dynamics of Machine, Theory of Machine, Material Science, Boilers, IC Engine, Machine Design, Product Design, Production Engineering, Industrial Drafting, Quality Engineering, Thermodynamics, Kinematics of Machine, Electrical Machine and Management. Workshop sessions are as important as the theory sessions, when it comes to Mechanical Engineering.
After completing Undergraduate level program, graduates may go for advanced PG courses such as M.Tech. Automobile Engineering, M.Tech. Production Engineering, M.Tech. Industrial Engineering etc. Other than such technical courses, management course like MBA is also popular among graduates. Short term technical courses like CADD and Piping can also be pursued by graduates. Graduates may also build a career in the Merchant Navy sector by taking up relevant Maritime courses after graduation!
