No doubt Mechanical Engineering is also known as the mother of all branches of engineering due to its versatility in various engineering fields. Mechanical engineering, the broadest of all Engineering disciplines deals with design and production of tools, machines and all other mechanical equipment to be used in industries. The industry offers a wide choice of options extending across many interdisciplinary interdependent specialties. Mechanical engineering is concerned with all types of machinery in industries and all aspects of their mechanism and functioning; the design, development, construction, production, installation, operation and maintenance; such as steam and gas turbines, components of thermal power stations, internal combustion engines, jet engines, machine tools, air conditioning and heating equipment, refrigerators etc. The Mechanical Engineers not only design and create new products, but also develope materials for them and ways of making them. Mechanical Engineers are involved in creating the future. They are the driving force behind many of our technologies and industrial processes including innovative products like mobiles, PCs and DVD etc.
The work of a Mechanical Engineer can be extremely challenging and fulfilling, requiring design and analytical skills together with ability to work as a team. As their work involves production, transmission and use of mechanical power and heat, they have to analyze different materials used for the machines and their tolerances; investigate he different energy sources and the power they generate and the design problems if any. When designing and making a commercial product they have to take into account all the business and marketing aspects to make sure that the product is affordable.
The department provides better facilities to the students for their excellence in career like:-
- To get broad exposure to all areas of Mechanical Engineering so as to be technically competitive and forge ahead in the race for quality employment.
- To acquire practical experience in Mechanical Engineering discipline through design projects and opportunities to work with faculty in research.
- To be trained and groomed for meet the technological challenges and diverse needs of industry and society in various areas of Mechanical Engineering and to excel it global leve.
- To acquire fundamental technical knowledge and skill in mathematics, science and engineering for recognizing and solving problems in the areas of design, development and manufacturing.
Mechanical Engineering finds applications in all fields of technology. Therefore the mechanical engineers can find employment work in many industries including either private, public and Govt sector. With the rapid rate of expansion in the industrial sector, the employment potential for mechanical engineers is very high. Mechanical engineers can also find jobs in automobile & transportation industry, steel& power plants, space & research organization, chemical, electronics, oil exploration and refining, technical wings of armed forces and agricultural sector for repair, service and maintenance of equipment etc. Candidates with post graduate degree or additional management degree can find work in academics, administrative and managerial positions in government departments or public and private sector industries or engaged in aching or research. They can also opt for technical sales / marketing or work as independent consultants.
