What Mechanical Engineering is All About?
Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest domains of engineering which basically deals with mechanics and machines. A mechanical engineer applies the concept of engineering physics, engineering mathematics, and material science to determine how a machine works in harmony. Apart from this, mechanical engineering also deals with the aspect of maintaining, analyzing, designing, and manufacturing machines which can be said is the broader sense of mechanical engineering.
The importance of mechanical engineering can be understood from the fact that it is known as “The Evergreen Branch” of engineering. It means that the demand for mechanical engineers has never seen a downfall and its demand has always been increasing. The mechanical engineers are the persons responsible for making great automobiles, power-producing machines, electric generators, gas turbines, and combustion engines. Saying this won’t be wrong that mechanical engineers run the whole world because it’s them who produce such great things for mass consumption and make our every day lives easier. Mechanical engineers are of utmost importance in our society because without them the basic needs of our lives can’t be fulfilled; even Air Conditioners are made and designed by mechanical engineers.
In this blog, we will be discussing everything about mechanical engineering including – scope, job opportunities, salary, required qualification, degrees & specialties, fee structure, and curriculum. So, let the ride begin.
What does a Mechanical Engineer do?
A mechanical engineer is involved in the process of distribution of energy from one form to another. E.g. mechanical energy to electrical energy, sound energy to wave energy, light energy to sound energy, and the list goes on. They are also responsible for manufacturing, designing, analyzing, processing, and maintaining complex systems that are built from intricate parts. In simple words, let’s say that a car is made up of 20,000 moving and rotating parts; it’s the job of a mechanical engineer to ensure that all 20,000 parts work in unison to deliver the maximum output.
They make new things for the public. Let it be air conditioners, refrigerators, electric vehicles, self-driving automobiles, prototype models, and simulators. One of the most interesting aspects of a mechanical engineer is that they are the ones to make and design prototypes by which any model or platform can be reverse engineered, and we can easily understand how an intricate system works within itself. A mechanical engineer also enjoys some of the industry’s best job offers and a few of them are – aerospace engineers, automobile engineers, nuclear engineers, maintenance engineers, land-based engineers, and robotics engineers.
PS: FYI, a mechanical engineer fits everywhere perfectly because they are very good at building and analyzing complex things/systems.
What is the scope of Mechanical engineering?
The scope of mechanical engineering is gargantuan as every industry directly or indirectly demands mechanical engineers; not even a single industry can work in a frictionless manner in the absence of mechanical engineers. To name a few, they work closely with – mechanics, thermodynamics, robotics, kinematics, structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, power sector, refrigeration, air conditioning sector, and aerospace.
A mechanical engineer is highly respected in society because they are responsible for creating new things or platforms that make people’s lives easier. A mechanical also gets a good salary because their skills are always in huge demand. A mechanical engineer never gives up easily and are highly dedicated in nature; that’s why most of the organizations love them. Recruiters are always in search of such candidates because of their never-say-die attitude.
A mechanical engineer always pushes the envelope and they are very good with problem-solving, reasoning, and analytical skills so their demand never goes out of the window. Their boundaries aren’t limited, and they can go to any industry for work-related activities. Some of the most reputed and well-enjoyed job profiles and career opportunities for a mechanical engineer are:
What is the salary of a mechanical engineer?
A mechanical engineer enjoys attractive packages and CTC within an organization. A fresher might get initially around 20-25k per month and as the experience increase, the salary of a professional mechanical engineer also soars high. The salary also depends upon the industry where mechanical engineering is working at present. A few industries such as – automotive, nuclear, thermodynamics, and aerospace sector pays more than healthcare, agriculture, land-based, and maintenance sectors.
But everything cannot be compared with money. If you have an interest in land-based engineering, go for it. Your salary will also increase with time and experience. In the long run, you will become successful by following your passion and not money; money will ensue as your work speaks up in front of everyone.
