BE Mechanical Engineering

About BE Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest branches of engineering. It is also referred to as the ‘mother’ branch of engineering. As machines are an integral part of our lives today, mechanical Engineering applies the science of physics and material science to design, test, maintain and analyse various mechanical systems. It can be any device used in daily life such as cooling or heating systems, aircrafts, medical devices or transportation systems like motor vehicles etc. The aforementioned are the conventional roles and responsibilities of mechanical engineers. Apart from the conventional boundaries, Mechanical engineering has also expanded its horizons towards new areas of research such as nanotechnology, development of composite materials, biomedical applications, environmental conservation, etc.

Entry to Mechanical Engineering requires passing 10+2 with PCM (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) with 45% in aggregate. Students also need to appear for various entrance exams like AIEEE or any state level exam. You can also opt for a diploma in engineering from a polytechnic. For obtaining a diploma, the basic eligibility is completion of Class 10 with 45% marks. The duration of these diploma courses is three-years for regular and four-years for part-time study.Diploma holders can also get direct entry into the second year of a graduate program (lateral entry).

Since Mechanical Engineering is considered as the widest of all branches, the scope with it also is endless. Campus recruitment can fetch you good companies for freshers and once you gain experience, getting into better options would be very easy for anyone. The perennial nature of job market makes this stream the most sought after engineering courses in India. Major sectors which recruit mechanical engineers are Pharmaceuticals, automobile, aviation, space research, bio medical, air conditioning and refrigeration industry, paper, refineries, chemical, railway, power generation, oil and gas and turbine industry. After successful completion of the graduate program, students can go for the two-year masters program in mechanical engineering or ME/MTech. If a student is interested in pursuing a post-graduate programme in mechanical engineering from any of the IITs, then he or she must appear for the Graduate Aptitude Test for Engineers (GATE). In case a student is interested in further studies, then he or she can go for a PhD or even opt for a management degree from a reputed business school.
The job profile of mechanical engineers can be classified into the following functional segments:

  • Research and Development (R&D): Engineers whose role is to do research and then plan for new machines and their constituent parts.
  • Design: Professionals whose responsibility is to draft technical drawings, manually or with the aid of computers.
  • Production: Engineers who supervise the manufacturing of mechanical components and machines.
  • Analysis and testing: Engineers who analyse and test different types of machines and their parts to ensure that they function flawlessly.
  • Installation: Professionals who install machines and mechanical parts at the client location.
  • Maintenance: Engineers whose primary role is to ensure that machinery is working as per specifications.

Some of the top firms where these graduates are recruited include the following.

  • ONGC
  • VSSC
  • ISRO
  • IOC
  • DRDO
  • SAIL
  • NTPC

After completing B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering, graduates can opt for higher studies which can be M. Tech. Different specializations in M.Tech are available in this branch to choose from. The various specializations in M.Tech Civil Engineering are
