  • Course Overview
    Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest branches of engineering. It is also referred to as the ‘mother’ branch of engineering. Another appealing feature of mechanical engineering is that the application base of this field of study is extremely broad and diverse. Almost all inventions during the ancient period and a vast majority in the modern era are direct contributions of one or the other application of mechanics.
    Mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of engineering, physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, production, and operation of machines and tools. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.
    The engineering field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, basic electrical, electronics and computer simulation in machine design. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering, and product lifecycle management to design, analyze and manufacture plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, various consumer goods, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, and others.
  • Course Breakup
