Mechanical Engineering is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, engineering mathematics and material science principles to design, analysis, manufacturing and maintain mechanical systems. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
Mechanical engineering covers aspects like design and testing among others. The job demands supervision and planning of live projects related to thermal power plants, nuclear stations, generation of electricity etc.
MThere are employment opportunities for diploma holders who have practical knowledge of working on fields like testing of machinery etc.
The emerging fields in this area include renewable energy, automobiles, quality control, industrial automation and mechatronics. These are going to increase manpower in the work profile of mechanical engineering and would offer employment opportunities.
