Concept:

Mechanical Engineering is the discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves production of energy from fuel, nuclear, hydraulics and other forms and their conversion for the proper utilization wherever necessary. The domain includes the design, production, and operation of many equipments or machineries that automates almost every task in our domestic world. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.

It is the Mechanical Engineer who is involved right from the conceptual stage of a product up to taking the product to the customer.  Mechanical Engineer’s role is to design and manufacture individual components from the available basic raw materials and assemble them into small/medium/large equipments.  For this he/she has to understand the forces and the thermal environment that the product and subsystems would encounter, to design the product for their functionality, aesthetic features and finally to determine the best way to manufacture them and ensure the product would operate without failure.

This engineering field requires an understanding of core concepts including graphics, mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, machine design, structural analysis, manufacturing technology etc. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and more.

Around half of the total technology imported in our country is related to mechanical engineering. Similarly one third of the value of total imports is for mechanical engineering equipments.  Therefore in order to develop indigenously mechanical engineering technology for the industries, Indian Government is giving highest thrust in R&D in Mechanical Engineering.
