Mechanical Engineering as a discipline has, perhaps, the widest applications. Engineers use the principles of physics to design, analyse, manufacture and maintain mechanical systems across different industry platforms. The Mechanical Engineers are trained in mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, energy etc. and can apply their skills across industries such as automobiles, aviation, heating & cooling systems and virtually all manufacturing facilities from medical equipment, white goods manufacturers, automobile manufacturing, OEMs to various industries etc. Apart from direct involvement in manufacturing, Mechanical Engineers are also involved in consulting, advisory services and research and development of mechanical devises and also associated maintenance services.
Job Prospects & Career Option
Since Mechanical Engineers are specifically associated with any machine that has moving parts they benefit from the potential of jobs in virtually any industry and at various functional levels from Research & Development, design of machines, design and implementation of manufacturing systems, consulting services for design, set-up and service of large production facilities such as iron and steel, power and energy, nuclear energy (micro and macro level generation) etc. A mechanical Engineers with additional management degrees can find lucrative career in management and administration within industry and/or consultancy. Public sector companies and institutions also present opportunities for employment of Mechanical Engineers.
