Scope of Mechanical Engineering

With the present pace of Industrialisation, the scope of Mechanical Engineering is ever expanding with advancement in the areas of Computer Aided Design (CAD), Robotics, Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS) and Laser Technology etc.

Mechanical Engineering graduates have wide employment opportunities in manufacturing industries, power sectors, process plants and R & D organisations and software industries.

Interested graduates can persue higher studies in convenient discipline such as Machine Design and Analysis, Industrial Design, Thermal Engineering, Manufacturing Sciences, Industrial Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Energy studies and Information Technology etc. On successful completion of post graduate courses one can be absorbed in Research and Development organizations or Academic Institutions.

With the location of reputed industrial organisation nearby, as mentioned earlier, Mechanical Engineering students of this Institute get ample scope of acquiring the desired practical bias through regular industrial visits. The students are assigned practical problems in collaboration with nearby industries for their project work in the final year level. It is thus expected that the Mechanical Engineering Graduates passing out from this Institute will have self-confidence and right bent of mind to compete for the jobs in State/Central Govt. concerns. Incidentally, most of the passed out Mechanical Engineering Students have found employment in state/central Govt. undertakings, Public Sectors, Defence Services and reputed private sectors like Maruti Udyog, TISCO, Mahindra and Mahindra, L&T, OCL, Reliance Industries, TCS, Infosys, PCS, WIPRO etc.

The Department is offering M.Tech programme in the specialization of "Mechanical System Design". Two more fields of specialization namely "Production Engg." & "Thermal Engg." are likely to be entroduced shorty to the M.Tech Programme.
