What exactly is Mechanical Engineering?
Mechanical Engineering (ME) based on the term “Mechanism”. The Mechanism is all about the idea on which the law of material science, physics, environment condition and mathematics are concerned in the production, design, manufacturing and maintenance.
Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest & vast disciplines of engineering.
If you are fascinated in functions, machinery, material science, robotics, micro devices, weapons design, watercraft, aircraft and their development, then mechanical engineering is the best choice to prove your skill & interest.
Mechanical engineering includes many other variety of engineering fields like civil engineering, electrical engineering, manufacturing engineering, aerospace engineering, chemical engineering and metallurgical engineering.
Mechanical Engineering Course Duration
You can opt for the mechanical engineering, once you have cleared your secondary or Sr. secondary examination.
The academic criterion of Mechanical engineering is divided into three courses/programmes as follows:
- Diploma coursesleading to the polytechnic diploma of 3 years
- UG coursesleading to the Tech (Bachelor of Technology) degree of 4 years duration.
- PG coursesleading to the Tech (Master of Technology) degree of 2 years duration.
After completing 10th standard, you would only be eligible to enter the diploma courses. Once you have completed the 12th standard you are fully eligible to select the UG (B.Tech) program.
In order to enter in Mechanical Engineering, either in UG or diploma, physics and maths are mandatory.
For entering in PG (M.Tech) program, B.Tech in mechanical engineering is compulsory.
