What is Mechanical Engineering? Why to take Mechanical Branch? What you will learn in Mechanical engineering? What purpose it serves for?



It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery. Mechanical engineering is the branch that applies the physics, principles of engineering and materials science for the manufacturing, analysis, design and maintenance of mechanical systems.

Mechanical engineers design machines and mechanical systems, engines, motor vehicles, aircraft, satellites, power plants, building energy systems, manufacturing systems, robots, control systems, medical equipment, and consumer products.

This field encompasses a very broad range of subject areas including fluids, controls, design, materials, machines, structures, energy and manufacturing, and biomedical engineering. They are involved in the production of metals, molded metals, alloys and advanced materials, manufactured goods and computer components, machine tools and industrial supplies. Their products are as diverse as a computer disk drive, an automobile, an aircraft engine or an artificial heart or kidney.

Mechanical engineering graduates are sought by employers in almost all sectors of the engineering industry. These include:

  1. Chemical industry - To build new plants or develop new process technologies (covers oil companies, chemicals manufacturers and the businesses that support them)

  2. Electronics industry - designs and manufactures electronic components like chips and complete equipment for sectors from automotive to medicine and the military

  3. Utilities industry - helps supply power, water, waste, electricity management and telecoms.

  4. Materials and metals industry - activities that include developing new materials and manufacturing components.

  5. Aerospace industry - researches, manufactures, designs, operates and maintains aircraft.

  6. Automotive industry - manufactures, designs, distributes and markets motor vehicles.

  7. Rail industry - designs, constructs and maintains rail system components from trains to electrical power systems.
