Mechanical Engineering is one of the most sought-after disciplines in the field of engineering. This programme applies the principles of Engineering, Physics, Mathematics and Material Science to design, manufacture, test and maintain mechanical systems. The stream is custom-made for those with an inquisitive mind and with a keen interest in designing and developing physical systems.
If you have a penchant for manufacturing machines and systems; or, if you love working on engines or energy generating devices of the future; or, if you have an aptitude for innovating and designing novel systems that can solve real-world problems, then Mechanical Engineering might be your calling. In this field, you will have ample opportunities to demonstrate your skills using one or more of Computer-aided design/engineering/manufacturing systems, or in the laboratory. You will learn the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, and get exposed to the rapidly emerging and disruptive technologies such as Automation & Robotics, smart aviation, Mechatronics, microelectromechanical systems, Industry 4.0, Additive Manufacturing, etc.
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, and consumer goods industries.
