Mechanical Engineering is the broadest and most diverse of engineering discipline .It design and manufactures everything from small individual parts and devices to large systems.
The role of mechanical engineer is to take the product from an idea to the marketplace. In order to accomplish this, a broad range of skills are needed. He/she needs to design them for functionality, aesthetics, and the ability to withstand the forces and the thermal environment they will be subjected to; and to determine the best way to manufacture them and ensure they will operate without failure.
The mechanical engineer's exclusive domain is the ability to analyze and design objects and systems with motion. Mechanical engineers learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, design, and manufacturing to understand mechanical systems.
The breadth of the mechanical engineering discipline allows students a variety of career options. Mechanical engineers play a central role in industries such as automotive ,aerospace ,power generation, biotechnology; computers, electronics and electromechanical systems.
