Jobs Galore for Mechanical Engineers
It would be quite ideal to term mechanical engineering as the pillar of the entire technological arena. In practice as well as in theory, this is a main stream of science that works on the applications of the law of physics associated with design, analysis and the craft of production of different types of systems.
Thus, we see that every year, there is a rapidly rising trend in the rush for admission at the mechanical engineering colleges across the country. After in-depth and comprehensive studies, the successful candidates simply walk out of the portals of these colleges with the degree scroll of B.E or B-Tech to explore the lucrative job scenario at home as well as abroad.
Mechanical engineering stands for conceptualising designs of machines, engines, turbines and automobiles for power generation plants and pragmatically every other automated entity across the globe. In simple words, the participants are taught comprehensively about kinematics, mechanics, metallurgy and energy among other various technical topics. In the light of all these aspects, it is quite evident that the successful road to get a degree in this stream of engineering is really a Herculean task.
Admission is strictly based on all India entrance examination for the students who ought to have studied physics, chemistry and mathematics in their 10+2 (higher secondary) examination attaining at least 50% marks. All the IITs (Indian Institutes of Technology) and a large number of other engineering Colleges in Haryana and across the country offer different courses in mechanical engineering.
This course is of 4-year duration in which they are taught the following core topics in detail:
- Machine Design
- Computational Fluid Mechanics
- Materials Science
- Theory of Design
- Dynamics and Statics
- Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer (also named Thermo Science)
- Strength of Materials including Structural Analysis
In addition to these, the syllabus also comprises of specific subjects and topics as part of specialisation including practical sessions and probable shop floor training of short duration at the end of the last semester. Almost all the institutions offering B. Tech in Gurgaon and in other parts of the country also have an educational tour.
Some of the specialisation topics are:
- Kinematics Turbo Machinery and Combustion Systems
- Mechatronics and Robotics
- Micro-Electro Mechanical Systems
- Hydraulics and Pneumatics
- Rapid prototyping
- Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Manufacturing
- Production Engineering
In the last semester, reputed corporate houses and allied industrial entities visit the campus in search of the talented students. This way, the bright technocrats of future are grabbed and find themselves chosen for a prospective and lucrative career as mechanical engineers. On the whole, the sky is always the limit in this profession as far as professional pursuits are concerned.
