Mechanical Engineering

Engineering [Bachelor of Technology]

What is Mechanical Engineering?

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

Traditionally Mechanical Engineers deal with concepts such as - Thermodynamics, kinematics, robotics, structural analysis, fluid mechanics and others.They contribute in the development of engines, power plant equipment and other kinds of complex machinery.
