Mechanical Engineering is a comprehensive discipline in engineering which involves design, manufacture and maintenance of systems ranging from a simple individual element to a complex system such as space craft. The principal and core subjects of Mechanical Engineering are Energy Conservation & Management, Fluid Mechanics & Machines, Thermal Engg., Machine Design, Manufacturing Processes, Advanced Production Processes, Computer Integrated Manufacturing Processes, and Industrial Engg. & Management, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning, Material Science & Metallurgy, I.C.Engines etc. The scope and job opportunities of Mechanical Engineering spreads in the area of manufacturing industries and other organisations such as Indian Railway, ISRO, Oil Refineries, Power Plants, Vehicle Manufacturing Industries, BHEL, H.M.T, Air ports, etc. Presently, beyond these traditional boundaries, it includes the new area of research such as nanotechnology, Composite materials, Bio-medical applications and Environmental conservation.
