B. Tech – Mechanical Engineering
A degree in Mechanical Engineering is the basis for a professional career in a broad range of industry sectors. A mechanical engineer may choose to work in fields such as medicine and healthcare, sustainable power generation, environmental technology, food production, sports science, aerospace, automotive, construction, nuclear, industrial product design, manufacturing, and project management etc. More than any other discipline, a degree in Mechanical Engineering is preparation for an enormously wide range of careers.
Our degree programs offer an blend of learning experiences designed to ensure our students not only master the scientific fundamentals, but also develop the skills, attitudes and experience demanded by 21st-century engineering and society. Our ethos is to spend as much time outside the lecture theatre as possible. Our students spend a significant amount of their time working in teams to apply their learning in the solution of practical problems; or in the design, building and testing of new products processes and systems. This means our graduates are very well prepared for their careers ahead, and industry recognizes them as highly employable.
History of Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering emerged as a field during the Industrial Revolution in Europe in the 18th Century; however, its development can be traced back several thousand years around the world. In the 19th century, developments in physics led to the development of mechanical engineering science. The field has continually evolved to incorporate advancements; today mechanical engineers are pursuing developments in such areas as composites, mechatronics, and nanotechnology. It also overlaps with aerospace engineering, metallurgical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, manufacturing engineering, chemical engineering, industrial engineering, and other engineering disciplines to varying amounts. Mechanical engineers may also work in the field of biomedical engineering, specifically with biomechanics, transport phenomena, biomechatronics, bionanotechnology, and modeling of biological systems.
