  • What Mechanical Engineering is all about?

    Answer. Mechanical engineers design power-producing machines, such as internal combustion engines, and steam and gas turbines, as well as power-using machines, such as refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. Mechanical engineers design other machines inside buildings, such as elevators and escalators.

  • Why is Mechanical Engineering important?

    Answer. Mechanical engineers are involved with the design, analysis, testing, manufacturing, control, operation, and maintenance of mechanical systems. Therefore, Mechanical Engineering is Important as It deals with all aspects of the conversion of thermal energy into useful work and the machines that make this possible.

  • Are Mechanical Engineers in demand?

    Answer. As per the latest survey, employment of mechanical engineers is projected to grow 10 percent from 2018 to 2025 (and it is expected to grow further for the decades to come), which is as fast as the average for all occupations. Mechanical engineers will also remain involved in various manufacturing industries, particularly in automotive manufacturing.
