Scope of Mechanical engineering in the coming years?

without labor and hard work you can not go so far in your career. whatever branch you will choose you have to do hard work to reach in top of the career.

obviously in mechanical engineering the physical is much more than the computer science engineering. but in computer science engineering brain work is much higher and also work load in IT industry or software industry is very high than mechanical engineering branch.

scope of mechanical engineering is very high. some time mechanical is called evergreen branch of engineering because of it's continuing good scope. there are so many company those recruit mechanical engineer in various post. some of the companies are L& T, TATA, Mahindra, Indian railway etc.

in higher study also mechanical engineering face a good advantage. there are so many subject in higher study and also do many institution offer mechanical engineering In India.

one more advantage if you choose mechanical engineering that you may built your career in IT field even after passing out from mechanical engineering. TCS, CTS etc leading IT company also recruit software engineer from mechanical engineering also. so after two years of mechanical engineering if you think that you want to built your career in IT field then concentrate on computer subject and computer programing and try to get job in software field. surely you will get good job. 
best of luck.
Mechanical Engineering finds application in all fields of technology. 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). Mechanical engineers have always been needed as an essential staff personnel in various industries of both public and private sector. Their work criteria changes according to the type and domain of the company they are working with.As the Industrial sector has drastically risen in pace, the need for more mechanical engineers has increased exponentially. Every manufacturing and production industry needs mechanical engineers to carry out jobs efficiently and flawlessly for their companies. 

As the Working criteria of a mechanical Engineer changes according to the type and domain of the company they are working with and field of specialisation we can broadly say that a mechanical Engineer works how to Design and control a system that goes into the process of manufacturing the machinery and product. He tests new systems for feasibility and efficiency and carries out Quality management and improvement process.

Mechanical engineers work in the automotive, aerospace, chemical, computer, communication, paper, and power generation industries. 

Mechanical engineers will be found in virtually any manufacturing industry. Increasingly, mechanical engineers are needed in the environmental and bio-medical fields. Indeed virtually every product or service in modern life has probably been touched in some way by a mechanical engineer.


Mechanical Engineers have to study a whole lot of physics, Engineering drawing, machine drawing and many more concepts such as 

  1. Statics 
  2. Dynamics 
  3. Kinematics 
  4. Strength of Materials 
  5. Materials Science 
  6. Theory of Machines 
  7. Thermodynamics 
  8. Fluid Mechanics 
  9. Heat Transfer 
  10. Manufacturing 
  11. Machine Design 
  12. Electrical Circuits 
  13. Laboratory Methods 
  14. Vibrations 
  15. Engineering Economics 
  16. Metallurgy 
  17. Manufacturing Process. 
  18. Computer Aided Design/ Drafting (CAD) 
  19. Automobile Engineering 
  20. Industrial Automation and 
  21. Robotics 
Pay Scale: Although Pay Scales are dependent on the type of organization you are selected in. A small and medium industries or companies hire Mechanical Engineers starting Rs 15,000/- to 20,000/- per month. Large companies such as L&T and several other MNCs give a package of Rs 15000/- to Rs 35000/- per month to fresh Mechanical graduates. 

Career Scope and Placement Prospects: 

It has a tremendous scope in automobile engineering, cement industry, steel, power sector, Hydraulics, Manufacturing plants, Drilling and mining Industry, Petroleum, Aeronautical, Biotechnology and many more. With its wide scope of application, mechanical engineers remain always in demand, no matter which part of the world. You can also find job very easily in the following public sector industries such as Indian Railways, Indian Air force (Technical), Indian Army, Thermal power corporations etc…
