How to make a bright career in mechanical engineering?


Discipline of mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and, thus, known as the “mother” of all engineering branches. An alluring characteristic of the branch is that its application base is wide. By and large, a lot of inventions of the past and modern era are because of the correct applications of mechanics. Mechanical engineering courses are designed to help aspirants learn the ropes of the branch.

Role of a mechanical engineer

As per traditions, mechanical engineers learn the concepts of thermodynamics, mechanics, kinematics, robotics, fluid mechanics, structural analysis, and the like. All these concepts are used while the technologists design motor vehicles, manufacturing units, aerospace as well as aircraft parts and industrial machinery.

In addition, these engineers help in designing state-of-the-art engines, heating as well as cooling systems and power plant equipment.  The engineers not only design a mechanical system, but maintain and test it also.

The above-named tasks are the conventional roles of technologists of the discipline. The scope of the students of the discipline, nowadays, has jumped over the traditional boundaries. Many aspirants of the branch have focused their attention toward new fields of study such as:-
·       Environmental conservation
·       Nanotechnology
·       Biomedical applications
·       Building conventional material

Start early

The aspirants of the branch of technology should start a little early if they have an affinity toward mechanic equipment. If children like to dismember a gadget, then they have interest in the discipline. A few children are very innovative and try to devise new items out of the available spare parts. The parents or guardians of these children should take special care and try to foster such type of innovativeness and curiosity.

The parents of such type of child should buy building block games while s/he is young. Slowly and steady, such children can take up Physics Chemistry and Math (PCM) while they are in 10+2.

What should be done after 10+2?

Passing 10+2 in PCM is the first step taken by aspirants toward becoming a mechanical engineer. For being eligible to study B.E. or B. Tech programs, the students should score at least 50-60 percent of marks. 60 percent marks in 10+2 makes students eligible for getting admission in top Engineering college in India.

After the result is out, the students give a variety of entrance examinations to get admission in prestigious B. tech (Mechanical) colleges in India. Students can also go for a diploma course in mechanical engineering from a polytechnic institute.  The duration of such type of diploma courses ranges from three-four years.

What should be done after completing graduation in mechanical engineering?

Once graduation in the engineering branch is done, students can work and gain industry experience. Some students, however, become interested in pursuing masters in the discipline. After successful completion of graduation, students should appear for an entrance exam for M. Tech. Also, a few engineers enroll for a business management program after completing their B. Tech in the discipline.

In case, aspirants are interested in any further studies of mechanics after completing their post graduation, they can go for PhD.
