Why Mechanical Engineering in SGBIT..?
Mechanical Engineering is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, engineering mathematics, and materials science principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines. The mechanical engineering field requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. In addition to these core principles, mechanical engineers use tools such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and product life cycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, and others. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery.
What will I experience..?
✔It provides more than technical training and teaches sophisticated skills of analysis & problem-solving that apply to most any type of engineering, business ventures, manufacturing, management, or even legal practice.
✔The programs nurture you to meet the global competency in industry and academics.
✔The state of art curriculum promotes independent thinking and learning at an individual's pace.
The Scope Of Mechanical Engineers ..?
Mechanical engineers Designs and produces new or improved products.
Work in research labs, the military, air force, navy and in other professions such as medicine, law or teaching and competitive exams.
Major area of employment for mechanical engineers is manufacturing, which cover nearly everything involved in developing a product, from selecting the appropriate materials to choosing the correct machinery to manufacture the product.
In this industry work for equipment manufacturers, aerospace companies, utilities, material processing plants, transportation companies, and petroleum companies. They also work with small firms, consulting practices, universities, and government research labs. Specific assignments might involve research and development, design of equipment or systems, supervision of production, plant engineering, administration, sales engineering, the testing and evaluation of machines and entire plants.
Some mechanical engineering titles and their functions include:
• Automotive engineer: Design parts for the automobile industry; solve transportation and safety problems by creating better and more efficient engines or by developing improved safety features.
• Biomedical engineer: Mechanical engineers work with a variety of medical professionals to design mobility aids, prosthetics, and artificial organs. • Nuclear engineer: Design nuclear power plants understanding the fundamentals of nuclear design; know how to operate the plant efficiently, and evaluate the environmental factors associated with nuclear plants.
