Mechanical engineering, covering a broad range of topics, requires understanding core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, and thermodynamics and updating the latest technologies like robotics, FEM, and nanotechnology.
To become a mechanical engineer, one should have a graduate degree (B.E /B.Tech) or at least a diploma in mechanical engineering. The degree and postgraduate degree courses are offered by private and government engineering colleges.
Higher Secondary students with 1st or 2nd group as their major or Diploma holders in Mechanical Engineering can choose bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (B.E).
Degrees in mechanical engineering are offered at universities worldwide. In India, mechanical engineering BE programs typically take four years.
In China and North America, mechanical engineering programs typically take four to five years and earns a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc), Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech), (Bachelor of EngineeringB.E),or Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S) degrees, in or with emphasis on mechanical engineering. In Spain, Portugal and most of South America, where neither B.Sc nor B.Tech programs have been adopted, the formal name for the degree is "Mechanical Engineer", and the courses work is based on five or six years of training. In the U.S., most undergraduate mechanical engineering programs are accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) to ensure similar courses requirements and standards among universities.
The total expense for doing Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering is as follows:
Bank loans and private loans can easily be arranged by directly contacting the banks through the college administration.
Being a mechanical engineer, a short-term courses in design or production could be useful to enhance your career. The following things can be undertaken/developed by the student to boost up his/her career in the particular field:
Design Courses: Auto-CAD, Pro-E, Catia, Ansys
Production Courses: Programming in CNC
Higher Education Options:
After successful completion of the bachelor’s degree, the options for higher education are plenty. A person with the above degree can opt for Master of Engineering or do an M.B.A.
Almost all the deemed and general universities offer bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering.
