B.Tech - Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineers are involved with just about every engineered product that we use in today's world – transportation systems, electronics and computers, energy systems, bio-medical devices, robots, and much more.
Mechanical Engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics, mathematics and materials science for design, analysis, prototyping, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. Mechanical engineering deals with the conversion of thermal energy to mechanical power and the design, production, and operation of machines and tools. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.
The mechanical engineering field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, and structural analysis. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like Computer-Aided Engineering and Product Lifecycle Management to design and analyse manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and more.
Mechanical Engineering science emerged in the 19th century as a result of developments in the field of physics. The field has continually evolved to incorporate advancements in technology. Mechanical engineers today are pursuing developments in fields such as composites, mechatronics and micro & nano-technology. Mechanical Engineering overlaps with aerospace, civil, electrical, petroleum and chemical engineering domains to varying amounts.
There is tremendous scope for mechanical engineers in automobile engineering, aeronautical, steel, power, heavy engineering, manufacturing, mining, petroleum and cement industries besides process industries and defence. Now-a-days they are also required in the environmental and biomedical fields. There are exciting times ahead for mechanical engineers as transport technologies like Hyperloop, electric vehicles, flying cars, drone technologies, an intelligent system like robots and additive manufacturing including 3D printing are gaining importance.
A beginner in Mechanical Engineering can opt for various job openings such as Design Engineer, CAE Analyst, Shop Floor Engineer, Production Planning, Quality Assurance, Maintenance Engineer, Safety Engineer, Production Supervisor/Engineer, R&D Trainee, etc.
