Following Information Technology (IT), mechanical engineering comes second in the list of most favored engineering disciplines. In this stream, students learn to apply various principles of mechanics and energy in order to come up with new designs of a variety of machines. From designing the structure to its operations and performance to maintenance, mechanical engineers are thoroughly involved in the procedure.
Mechanical engineers are required to design and create machinery for various purposes in a number of industries. The machine include bur are not limited to automobiles for transportation, space vehicles, machinery for facilitating agriculture, manufacturing and production devices, fax machine, copiers and other devices used in offices, milling machines, heavy drilling vehicles and systems, bucket trucks and many other. Apart from that, they also design power plants and are involved with fuel thermogenesis and energy conversion.
Mechanical engineering students have a wide range of subject choices such as engineering mechanics, designs and controls, thermo-science, Mechatronics and control theory, hydraulics and pneumatics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, energy conversion, combustion, automotive engines and many others. Several colleges even offer specialized courses included such as robotics, cryogenics, transport and logistics, optics, biomechanics, vibration and many others.
