About ME :
Mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of 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.
What is Mechanical Engineering?
Mechanical Engineering is one of the major divisions within the profession and its principles are involved in the design, development and construction of nearly all of the physical devices and systems which technology has produced. Mechanical engineers are also concerned with the operations of all kinds of machinery, and the production of power. They must conceive, research, design, develop, test, manufacture and sell equipment for these purposes. Manufacturing is a complex and requires a great deal of specialized knowledge. Manufacturing engineers are required by all kinds of companies which manufacture a great variety of machines, robotics and other equipment. The manufacturing engineer may be responsible for the design, selection of materials, specifications and the improvement of production processes and equipment. Responsibility for plant layout, production management and control, as well as plant maintenance is also required of manufacturing engineers.
Mechanical Engineering is a very broad branch of engineering. Mechanical engineers are found in almost every type of engineering activity like power generation, transportation systems for land, sea and air, environmental protection and, bio medical engineering. They are found in a wide range of industries which manufacture machinery and consumer goods and offer research and technical services.
