Mechanical Engineering is one of the most exciting and competitive field of Engineering. Reading some wonderful books will save your time and help you discover a number of fresh aspects to the field. I am listing down few must read books for a Mechanical Engineer:

1. Marks' Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers by E. A. Aballone, T. Baumeister, and A. Saeghis one of the best books available for the Mechanical Engineering. It has been a standard for Mechanical Engineers for a long long time. It covers all the aspects of Mechanical Engineering and is a nice read for everyone interested in this field.


2. Shigley's Mechanical Engineering Design by R. Budynas and K. Nisbettis a book for mchine design which is an important part of mechanical engineering. It illustrates all the basic and advanced concepts of mechanical engineering very clearly so that you can understand it with ease.



3.Erik Oberg Machinery's Handbookis again a book read by most mechanical engineers along with manufacturing engineers, designers and technicians. It focuses on the tools and the processes and explains each concept very clearly for the deep understanding of the reader.






4.Fundamentals of Thermodynamics by C. Borgnakke and R. E. Sonntagis a wonderful book written on thermodynamics which is a nice read for students, academics and professionals. It provides the clear understanding of the various topics covered under thermodynamics.




5.W. D. Callister and D. G. Rethwisch's Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction -is again a nice book which focuses on Material Science and the relationship of structural elements and the materials. It is a comprehensive guide to understand the importance of Material Science in Mechanical Engineering.

Dear Student, if you wish to pursue engineering and that to in mechanical branch, then first of all you must fortify your PCM, for this you may follow NCERT books which are an ideal choice and the content in these books is quite satisfactory as well as helpful in appearing in tests like JEE/AIEEE etc. Thereafter if you have some desires to join a particular institution, you may download the syllabus and recommended books and be on your toes to study well. Some renowned names of institutions may be mentioned over here for mechanical engineering, you may visit the official websites of these institutions to get to know about details and then join any one of them - VIT, Vellore,.................Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal,.......

Probably it would be difficult to prepare down a complete and comprehensive list of books to follow by every mechanical engineer,as the different specialization requires  knowledge of specific discipline.

If you are a practicing engineer, number of Mechanical Engineer's Handbook are available for reference.They contain useful information in a concise way compiled through a number of subject.

For students preparing for various competitive examinations objective type question banks will be of additional help to text books.
