Mechanical engineering, one of the largest, oldest and perhaps the broadest of all Engineering disciplines deals with design and production of tools, machines and all other mechanical equipment to be used in industries. The industry offers a wide choice of options extending across many interdisciplinary interdependent specialties. Mechanical engineering is concerned with all types of machinery in industries and all aspects of their mechanism and functioning; the design, development, construction, production, installation, operation and maintenance; such as large steam and gas turbines, components of thermal power stations, internal combustion engines, jet engines, machine tools, air conditioning and heating machines, refrigerators etc to name a few. They not only design and create new products, but also develop materials for them and ways of making them.
In a way, mechanical engineers are involved in creating the future. They are the driving force behind many of our technologies and industrial processes including innovative products like mobiles, PCs and DVD etc in our modern world. The work of a Mechanical Engineer can be extremely challenging and fulfilling, requiring IT, design and analytical skills together with an ability to work as a team. As their work involves production, transmission and use of mechanical power and heat, they have to analyse the different materials used for the machines and their tolerances, investigate the different energy sources and the power they generate and the design problems if any. When designing and making a commercial product they have to take into account all the business and marketing aspects to make sure that the product is affordable. They share interests with many other engineers like Civil Engineers in structures and stress analysis; Electrical engineers in electronics, computing and control theory; Aeronautical Engineers in fluid flow and turbomachinery etc and also design tools needed by other engineers for their work. They work as part of a team with other engineers as well as financial, business and management professionals on a project together. Mechanical Engineers are also responsible for maintenance and repair of the devices. Care has to be taken that the plants give maximum output and the machinery is properly maintained.

Mechanical engineers are required to test, manufacture, design , install, operate and maintain a wide array of machines and mechanical systems which are used in various industries. Their work depends upon their area of interest and specialization. In brief, the various roles played by mechanical engineers in different industries are :-

  • Research & Development- Their work involves doing researchand then plan for new machines and their constituent parts.
  • Design- Professionals whose responsibility is to draft technical drawings, manually or with the assistance of computers.
  • Analysis & Testing- They analyze and test diffrent types of machines and their parts to ensure that they function flawlessly.
  • Installation- Professional who install machines at the client location.
  • Maintenance- They have to ensure that machinery is working as per specification
  • Production-responsible for supervising the manufacturing of mechanical components and machines.

The mechanical engineers can find employment with both private government & private sector. The industries that employ mechanical engineers include automobile and auto parts manufacturers, aerospace industry, aviation, shipping & steel industry, refrigeration and air conditioning industry, oil& gas exploration and refining industry, turbine manufacturing plants etc. The services of expert mechanical engineers have been sought in fields such as nanotechnology, biomedical engineering, energy conservation and environmental engineering. There is also a demand for mechanical engineers who have management skills along with technical proficiency. They are usually hired by engineering consultancy firms like Tata Consultancy services & L&T.
