Mechanical engineering, the broadest of all Engineering disciplines, deals with design and production of tools, machines and all other mechanical equipment to be used in industries. The industry offers a wide choice of options extending across many interdisciplinary interdependent specialties.
Mechanical engineering is 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 machines, refrigerators etc to name a few. They not only design and create new products, but also develop materials for them and ways of making them.
Virtually every aspect of life is touched by Mechanical Engineering. If something moves or uses energy, a mechanical engineer was probably involved in its design or production. Following are the areas and/ or fields where a mechanical engineer can seek progress post completion of the course
