MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

 

Major domain areas in the programme

This program is designed to produce technicians with broad knowledge in engineering with
applications covering the design, development, manufacture, operation and maintenance of
machines and mechanical devices. Mechanical engineering is one of the most basic engineering
branches and has got its own relevance. The latest trends towards MEMS technology have
considerably increased the scope of this branch of engineering.

Future prospects

The diploma holders may find their jobs in organizations involved in manufacturing,
transportation, mining, construction and also in consulting engineering. They may be
involved in product design, technical sales, specifications preparation and cost estimates,
testing, evaluating and research and development. Some mechanical technologists will find
employment in specialized fields such as design drafting training, material testing, automation
and packaging, instrumentation design, and implementation of CAD/CAM equipments. Higher
education can be pursued in any field involving mechanical engineering.
