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.

Application of Stream

There is a high demand for skilled mechanical engineers in the various segments of the industry. Their expertise is usually required in the traditional manufacturing industries- aviation, automobiles, aerospace, automobiles, power plants and machinery manufacturing.

Countless engineering colleges and polytechnics across the country are doing their best to meet the increasing demand for mechanical engineers.

Qualified professionals in this field usually seek higher education and employment in countries abroad. 


The specializations that are available are as follows:

  1. Mechanical and Automation
  2. Energy system and pollution
  3. Refrigeration
  4. Air-conditioning
  5. Energy Management

Aspirants are required to hold a master's degree in Mechanical Engineering to get recruited by a big organization.

This is a field where there are countless number of vacancies and there is no scope for unemployment.This stream can never be hit by recession or a global meltdown.

Mechanical Engineers hold posts across the following roles:

  1. Research and Development
  2. Production
  3. Designing
  4. Testing and analysis
  5. Maintenance
  6. Installation of equipment


 A graduate programme in Mechanical Engineering would cost anywhere between INR 50K to INR 200,000 annually.

In government institutions or IITs, the fee range would be between 30-40k.

Education institutions also offer scholarship programmes to students from backward areas. IIT s also waive off fees for students coming from extreme backward communities.

Scholarships, stipends and financial assistance are provided to students on the basis of merit.

The eligibility criteria is that a student must complete 10+2 with a minimum of 50%.
