Mechanical Engineering is a branch of Engineering that combines Engineering, Physics and mathematical principles with materials, science to design, analyse, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems.
It is one of the broadest branches of Engineering. The mechanical engineering field requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, materials science and structural analysis. Mechanical Engineers also use tools such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and product lifecycle management to design and analyse manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, transport systems, aircrafts, robotics, medical devices, etc.
It is also 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 large steam and gas turbines, components of thermal power stations, internal combustion engines, jet engines, machine tools, air conditioning and heating systems, refrigerators etc.
With increased technology, a Mechanical Engineer has a globalized effect on the way our world continues to develop.
Anyone who studies Mechanical Engineering can pursue his or her career in:
