Mechanical engineering is the oldest core branch among engineering branches. Mechanical engineering a as words suggest deals with mechanical that is machines. Mechanical, machines are important since human life and so control the day today activities in the world. Engineering students required physics as well as mathematics. The engineering branch the study of machines, engines, turbines .Kerala Technological University syllabus for mechanical engineering consists of the conventional papers along with some new papers related to design and Engineering..After course completion, Mechanical Engineer has vast job opportunities , subject understanding knowledge help him to build himself as an good mechanical engineer was job opportunities for mechanical engineers are available in the Middle East regions.
Mechanical engineering concerns the design, construction and use of mechanical devices. This covers a broad range of machines such as internal combustion engines, aircraft engines, industrial equipment and manufacturing plants. Students studying Mechanical engineering cover a wide range of topics including mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and materials.
Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that derives its breadth from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices (e.g., microscale sensors and inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g., spacecraft and machine tools). The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. In order to accomplish this, a broad range of skills are needed. The mechanical engineer needs to acquire particular skills and knowledge. He/she needs to understand the forces and the thermal environment that a product, its parts, or its subsystems will encounter; to design them for functionality, aesthetics, and the ability to withstand the forces and the thermal environment they will be subjected to; and to determine the best way to manufacture them and ensure they will operate without failure. Perhaps the one skill that is the mechanical engineer's exclusive domain is the ability to analyze and design objects and systems with motion.
Since these skills are required for virtually everything that is made, mechanical engineering is perhaps the broadest and most diverse of engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers play a central role in such industries as automotive (from the car chassis to its every subsystem—engine, transmission, sensors); aerospace (airplanes, aircraft engines, control systems for airplanes and spacecraft); biotechnology (implants, prosthetic devices, fluidic systems for pharmaceutical industries); computers and electronics (disk drives, printers, cooling systems, semiconductor tools); microelectromechanical systems, or MEMS (sensors, actuators, micropower generation); energy conversion (gas turbines, wind turbines, solar energy, fuel cells); environmental control (HVAC, air-conditioning, refrigeration, compressors); automation (robots, data and image acquisition, recognition, control); manufacturing (machining, machine tools, prototyping, microfabrication).
To put it simply, mechanical engineering deals with anything that moves, including the human body, a very complex machine. Mechanical engineers learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation, design, and manufacturing to understand mechanical systems. Specialized mechanical engineering subjects include biomechanics, cartilage-tissue engineering, energy conversion, laser-assisted materials processing, combustion, MEMS, microfluidic devices, fracture mechanics, nanomechanics, mechanisms, micropower generation, tribology (friction and wear), and vibrations. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) currently lists 36 technical divisions, from advanced energy systems and aerospace engineering to solid-waste engineering and textile engineering. The breadth of the mechanical engineering discipline allows students a variety of career options beyond some of the industries listed above. Regardless of the particular path they envision for themselves after they graduate, their education will have provided them with the creative thinking that allows them to design an exciting product or system, the analytical tools to achieve their design goals, the ability to overcome all constraints, and the teamwork needed to design, market, and produce a system. These valuable skills could also launch a career in medicine, law, consulting, management, banking, finance, and so on. For those interested in applied scientific and mathematical aspects of the discipline, graduate study in mechanical engineering can lead to a career of research and teaching. This course aims to produce graduates that are highly valued by employers. It gives you an excellent grounding in the knowledge and experience of the most fundamental of all engineering disciplines, preparing you for a variety of careers in engineering, technology, business and management. We use a variety of teaching styles that reflect the diversity of topics covered in modern mechanical engineering, and the range of skills and expertise that a professional engineer must develop.
This course aims to provide the mechanical engineers of the future with an education that covers:
• The breadth of this diverse subject
• Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
• A high degree of competence in engineering design field.
Typically, you take lectures and tutorial classes in the mornings with laboratory classes on some afternoons. Active learning is included in some programmes through a range of small problem based projects. This is complementary to the taught elements and is challenging and fun. Through the mix of learning from transitional lectures to team work and problem solving you will obtain: a thorough understanding of engineering science or construction through application of your knowledge; the ability to deal with the multi-disciplinary nature of modern engineering; a creative approach to problem solving; the self motivated approach required for success in university education; and the interpersonal and management skills needed when working in teams to fixed deadlines.
