Mechanical Engineering : Scope, Career Prospects, Demand



Mechanical Engineering finds application in all fields of technology. It is one of the primitive branches of Engineering which have remained always in demand and continue to be in the future. This is why Mechanical trade is called as an Evergreen trade (branch). Mechanical engineers have always been needed as an essential staff personnel in various industries of both public and private sector. Their work criteria changes according to the type and domain of the company they are working with.As the Industrial sector has drastically risen in pace, the need for more mechanical engineers has increased exponentially. Every manufacturing and production industry needs mechanical engineers to carry out jobs efficiently and flawlessly for their companies.

Working Domain of Mechanical Engineers:

As the Working criteria of a mechanical Engineer changes according to the type and domain of the company they are working with and field of specialisation we can broadly say that a mechanical Engineer works how to Design and control a system that goes into the process of manufacturing the machinery and product. He tests new systems for feasibility and efficiency and carries out Quality management and improvement process.

Mechanical engineers  work in the automotive, aerospace, chemical, computer, communication, paper, and power generation  industries.

Mechanical engineers will be found in virtually any manufacturing industry. Increasingly, mechanical engineers are needed in the environmental and bio-medical fields. Indeed virtually every product or service in modern life has probably been touched in some way by a mechanical engineer.

What is there to study:

Mechanical Engineers have to study a whole lot of physics, Engineering drawing, machine drawing and many more concepts such as

  • Statics
  • Dynamics
  • Kinematics
  • Strength of Materials
  • Materials Science
  • Theory of Machines
  • Thermodynamics
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Heat Transfer
  • Manufacturing
  • Machine Design
  • Electrical Circuits
  • Laboratory Methods
  • Vibrations
  • Engineering Economics
  • Metallurgy
  • Manufacturing Process.
  • Computer Aided Design/ Drafting (CAD)
  • Automobile Engineering
  • Industrial Automation and
    Robotics

Pay Scale: Although Pay Scales are dependent on the type of organization you are selected in. A small and medium industries or companies hire Mechanical Engineers starting Rs 15,000/- to 20,000/- per month. Large companies such as L&T and several other MNCs give a package of Rs 15000/- to Rs 35000/- per month to fresh Mechanical graduates.

Career Scope and Placement Prospects:

It has a tremendous scope in automobile engineering, cement industry, steel, power sector, Hydraulics, Manufacturing plants, Drilling and mining Industry, Petroleum, Aeronautical, Biotechnology and many more. With its wide scope of application, mechanical engineers remain always in demand, no matter which part of the world. You can also find job very easily in the following public sector industries such as Indian Railways, Indian Air force (Technical), Indian Army, Thermal power corporations etc…

    hello there
    i recently secured a rank in aieee
    they have offered me biotechnology in nit-warangal . basically i am very good at physics . so,is it better to go there or to do mechanics or electronics in my home city.what are my career options if i choose to take biotechnology.i came to know that the remuneration after b.tech in biotech is very low.”so,please tell me what is the correct option for me either to choose nit or mechanical in normal college


  2. aarti Says:

    somebody told me that in autonomous engineering institutes fees paid in first year is replaced to anoher years and refunded back after completion of BE is it true?


  3. nikhil Says:

    hi…i am a 1st year student in mechanacal engineering…im not gud in drawing and creative works……mech engineering mainly deals with designing and upgrading of machines…can i cope up with it…is drawing and creative mind essentaal for mech engineering….can i become a succesful mech engineer….please answer my question

  5. mousam Says:

    i am a 1st student of mechanical engineering in institute of engineering(IOE),pulchowk,nepal.after my graduate i want to secure my future doing technical jobs that will fit my skills.what is the scope of mechanical engineering.will i get the jobs as i have mentioned earlier??


  6. hitesh Says:

    its good to be creative and drawing is also the language of engineers but it is never necessary to have these for mechanical engineer even by cramming basic laws and doing practicals u can be a successful engineer


  7. Abhinav singla Says:

    well first of all its not appropriate to compare two different streams..secondly mechanical branch does not depend only on physics..there are many more subjects which u have to cover during the course..
    also biotech has very good scope i near future..but u need to go for it only if u r ready for research work .


  8. Abhinav singla Says:

    nikhil u need not to worry about ur mechanical drawing..i assure u that by the time you complete ur btech u will be knowing enough drawing required in industries..
    and yeah the answer to ur second question is u can be aa successful mech engineer as dese days many softwares are available which r automated so they ease down ur work ..

    i have interest in designing side.
    i am confused either to take civil or mech..?
    reply must


  15. Yadhu Raj Says:

    which one have more job opportunities ,ME or EEE


  16. Shaark61 Says:

    mechanical is the best branch


  17. Akshayshanu11 Says:

    mech is difficult and hard tarde if u can do then its best
     


  18. Akshayshanu11 Says:

    mechanical trade is no based on physics and maths its depend only depend on ones mind stability bcoz in this trade marks are not counted to much  its urs only intelligency


  19. Kumaraiet40 Says:

    in which extreem u interested , u take that u like most


  20. Kushalpalsingh Says:

    me is best one with grt scope nd intrst. join it nd work hard


  21. Kushalpalsingh91 Says:

    mech. dear


  22. Praveen Says:

    after mech which is best aeronautical or mba???


  23. Divyansh Ojha Says:

    i don’t think so, its tougher than i myself thought when i joined it. i had 83% score in cbse. But today i m finding it difficult. I think trades like mech, chemical and petrochemical should be opted only by +90 scorers. It involves a lot of physics(in all semester-as all subject are physics based), mathematics in almost 6 semesters.


  24. Divyansh Ojha Says:

    sorry if you dont know i must tell you that som1,som2,at1,at2,fluidmechanics,and others…almost 90% of the subjects are deep study of physics in itself. if a subject does not use physics as name does not mean it aint real world physics. mechanical engineering is deep study and implementation of physics. Machine designing in itself is not as easy as it looks while attending md-2 lectures. in real life you have to use formula’s taught in subjects like som, tom, at to test the strength and other elements of the die or machine before it is made in reality.


  25. Rangraaman Says:

    i am doing mechanical engn..from newly established private college in himachal….i juss want to know about the scope for me if i do well in studies ….help me ..i am in bit of confussion…plezz tell me in my trade which subject i should give more stress


  26. aishu Says:

    hey  go  to    mecha  is  best  m  in  1st  year  of  diploma  for  mecha  in  government  poytechnic  college


  27. aish Says:

    thanxxxxxxxx  for  motivation


  28. V.K Says:

    mechanical engg.. very tough trade like medical, it’s all about physics, mathematics,engg..drawing and material science and if you are weak in study then you never go with this tarde……IF you choose mechanical engg you parpare to yourself for hard work………….every one knows mechanical is evergreen so most of the peo-pal choose mechanical for better future. some very weak in study they also choose mechanical and they slowly -2 get the b.tech in low %age. but they don’t know it’s very tough competition for jobs in mechanical field.best company’s  always pefer top ranked student and give them best salary package. and rest of them low %age  student also get a job.  (bcos mechanical have huge jobs opportunity for all) but them salary lower then the labor’s salary.         Referance by me :-M.E in mechanical
    pvt. Designer


  29. Megana Says:

  35. Naveen D Rebel Says:

    being as an mech student..whole heartdly iam saying MECH always rockzz and rules the world.


  36. Vijay Boopathy Mech Says:

    What will the scope of our department after 2 years as the number of mechanical engineers is increasing day by day? Please answer.


  37. Viru Sahu Says:

    if u are phisically strong then u can join mech department .


  38. Moses Immanuel Says:

    mech engg or comp engg which is best and has more scope in future.


  39. Aravind Avid Says:

    iam in same state as u !
    dono wat to take cse or mech ! if u get any solution pls inform me !


  40. Kalyan Kumar Says:

    mech always ever green branch


  41. Ashna Antony Says:

    wch s d bst among mech nd ece? wch hv got mre scope.


  42. Anju Yadav Says:

    Aeronautical has more scope. But u should be intelligent at Physics and Maths , sHOULD hAVE a creative mind. aNd hould have interest to fly ……..


  43. Hari Prasad Vijayakumar Says:

    MEchanical career has a linear graph where the starting is slow…u earn less about 10-20K as fresher but it gets better with experience and people with most experience are valid more…same case in EEE but others…its vice versa like CSE , IT where u start great 20-30K but when technology is updated or fresh batches come u r chucked out….u are in critical position at the age of 35-40 in IT but in MECH after 25-26 u are almost settled and initial 4-5 years choosing your specialisation is difficult…..


  44. Đ Śãť Pēťęŕ Says:

    Is there any scope in b.tech mechanical branch..as its adviced dat lot of ppl do diz so its bettr to try ny new field..plz rply


  45. Pankaj Pal Says:

    how…..physically fit


  46. Pankaj Pal Says:

    i m cnfused that which branch is good


  47. Pankaj Pal Says:

    electronic &communication and mechanical


  48. Abhishek Arya Says:

    look basically it is necessary to ask yourself that what you want to be … if you have intrest in programming then choose cse and if you want be with the machines then choose mech … although the initial salary of mech. students are low but with experience you will have gain in your salary and after a while you will be satisfied with your work… :D

    Yusuf Sami diploma is actually 3 years but since u have done 12th no need for it so join BE in a recognised coll under AICTE if its in india and joining in top coll will ensure better life and placement.


  56. Anonymous Says:

    I'm final year BE student.I'm confused between whether to take Job offer or Post graduation.As you said in mechanical field there is more importance to EXPERIENCE , so how to choose between jaob and PG.
    Also how to choose field of specialization. Please help since i'm totally confused.
