There is hardly any aspect of life that is not influenced by a Mechanical Engineer.
As a student in the field of Mechanical Engineering, you will learn to research, develop, design, manufacture and test tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices. You will work on power generating machines such as internal combustion engines, turbines. and jet and rocket engines. You will also learn to develop machines such as refrigerators and air-conditioners, robots, materials handling systems, and industrial production equipment. CAD/CAM courses assist you in designing components with greatest possible efficiencies. Mechanical Engineering is the broadest and most diverse engineering discipline. Not many industries can exist without Mechanical Engineers.
