Who should study Mechanical Engineering?
If you have an interest in manufacturing, if you love doing work on engines, or if you have an aptitude for drawing then Mechanical Engineering might be your calling. In this field, you will have ample opportunity to demonstrate your skills in the lab. You will learn the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, and be exposed to diverse areas such as mechatronics, aeronautical, MEMS, automobile, etc.
What will I study in the course?
As a student of mechanical engineering, you will find yourself deep-diving into this core technical field that deals with various subjects broadly classified into the design, thermal and manufacturing streams. Students will learn CAED / CAM, knowledge of which is essential nowadays for operating conventional CNC (computer-aided numerically-controlled) machines. With an understanding of CAEM, students will be able to work on these machines. As early as the first year, students will get a real taste for the basics of mechanical engineering as they delve into 2-D drafting.
What will I do once I graduate?
Mechanical Engineering creates a base for students who aspire to lead their career in the fields of Design, Materials, Manufacturing, CAD/CAM/CAE, Automation, Mechatronics, FEM as well as managerial aspects of industry. Mechanical Engineering graduates are sought after by employers in most sectors of the Engineering industry including Aerospace, Automobile, Chemical, Construction, Defence, Industrial Electronics, IT, Materials, Pharmaceutical, Railways etc.
The majority of our students go on to pursue careers in the field, and end up working for core companies such as Bosch-Group, Ashok Leyland, Volvo etc, Companies like Sony and Amazon, although not core mechanical companies keenly look to hire mechanical engineers for specialized work. Some students also go on to pursue higher studies in the field, and research work. The opportunities for mechanical engineers are vast and exciting!
