About Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering is the branch of engineering, dealing with the design, construction and use of machines. Mechanical engineers create and develop mechanical systems for all of humankind. Mechanical Engineering finds application in all fields of technologies like Manufacturing, Construction, Production, Marketing, Automotive, Aerospace, Chemical, Computer Science, Electronics and Communication, Power generation and etc... Mechanical engineers have always been needed as an essential staff in various industries of both public and private sectors. It is one of the primitive branches of Engineering which have remained always in demand and continue to be in the future. This is why mechanical trade is called as an Evergreen trade (branch). The breadth of the mechanical engineering discipline allows variety of career options beyond some of the industries listed above.
What do you need to study in order to become a Mechanical Engineer? Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that provides the creative thinking and allows to designing and manufactures everything from small individual parts and devices to produce an exciting/new/modify product or system by the teamwork and marketing the same. Mechanical Engineers have to study below subjects during graduation along with some laboratory practicals.

Ø Academic projects and paper presentation concepts are added knowledge on interested topics.
These technical subjects are the main basis for their work or business. Through clever use of analysis, modeling, design and synthesis can solve important problems to improve quality of life. A mechanical engineering degree is an excellent foundation for success in the engineering profession and also for further in other disciplines. In higher study also mechanical engineering faces a good advantage. There are so many subjects in higher study and also many institutions offering post graduation in mechanical engineering.
