The entry into this branch of engineering requires certain basic traits. Apart from being good in physics and mathematics, one must have a penchant for mechanical components and machinery and how these machines work. Further, one must have immense patience, ability to work for long hours and an inventive spirit that are essential ingredients for becoming a successful mechanical engineer.

The opportunities are plenty and unending because of the broadest nature of the field mechanical engineering offers. Mechanical engineers are required to design, test, manufacture, install, operate and maintain a wide array of machines and mechanical systems and hence can find employment both in the government and private sector undertakings. Major industries include automobiles, aeronautical, power, energy and utilities, air conditioning and refrigeration industry, manufacturing plants, oil and gas exploration, refining industries, agricultural sector, shipping industry, banks, insurance, financial institutions, teaching & research. In the government sector, mechanical engineers can provide their knowledge to various government run projects in the role of technical experts and consultants. They can also work in private engineering companies that provide technical consultancy to both government and corporate firms. They not only have countless options in the industrial sector but they can also make foray into new realms of technology and even get into management and technical consultancy.

Apart from the conventional roles and responsibility, the scope of mechanical engineering is leaping beyond its traditional boundaries. Focus is on new areas of research such as nanotechnology, development of composite materials, biomedical applications, environmental conservation, IT Setups etc. Overall mechanical engineering offers a wide bouquet of job options to students who are looking for a stable and stimulating career.

The resurgence of mechanical engineering was quite spectacular in recent years due to the regular progressive nature of development worldwide. According to survey, this is the most sought branch preferred by students seeking admission to various technical institutes across India in the recent years. The job market for mechanical engineers is perennial. Even the vagaries of the global economic crisis could not knock out the demand for these professionals in the Indian job market. Although some branches of mechanical engineering went out of focus during the meltdown period, the overall situation was much better as compared with other careers. On the brighter side, things are getting back to normal and this evergreen career path is again gaining currency amongst career aspirants as it did during the pre-meltdown years.

Yes, in the Aircraft stream and Automobiles. A career in the Indian defence service is a lot more than just an element of pride in donning the uniform, be it army, air force or navy. There is nothing to beat a career in the defence forces, crucial responsibilities, service to the nation, respect from all sections of society all rolled into one. Training for the defence services automatically qualifies students to become full-fledged officers of the service to which they are appointed. They are guaranteed a job, along with all the perks and allowances, many of which continue even after retirement. Jobs in the Defence Services involve a great deal of power and authority, though there are frequent transfers. Competent officers always have a chance of being promoted to senior positions over the years.

The different types of software used by mechanical engineers for design and analysis are-

The emergence of this new era of embedded technology means that information on how these things are integrated together is available at your fingertips. In the backdrop of huge operation in manufacturing sector, this philosophy of smart manufacturing is going to help immensely in taking quick and accurate decisions so as to save time as well as money because it involves interactive approach of different disciplines like data analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing etc.

Smart manufacturing is more focused on manufacturing processes and integrating IoT technologies to help create smart, connected factories.

In the present time, with the ever-increasing consumption of consumer goods, the demand for customized goods is increasing exponentially and to meet this situation, manufacturer have to respond quickly to these changing market conditions in the most efficient way. Having a setup of smart manufacturing in the factory will be an enabler to achieve this aim.

Being at the forefront of Industry 4.0 and taking advantage of technology will allow manufacturers, big or small to achieve business outcomes that weren’t possible 10 years ago, such as improving cost-effectiveness and product quality. IoT enabled technologies will give manufacturers the chance to have full visibility of operations and allow them to be responsive to information about raw materials, inventory, quality, waste, output and customer demands, ensuring that opportunities for improvement are highlighted and action is taken, saving money, time and improving customer satisfaction and supplier relations. In all the above operations/activities, a student passing out with the knowledge of smart manufacturing and Industrial Automation will be able to make real value addition in achieving the desired targets of the industry.
