Introduction to Mechanical Engineering Course:
Mechanical Engineering is a science where you deal with design, production and operation of machinery. Mechanical Engineering compromises of thermodynamics, physics and material science. Mechanical Engineering came to limelight after the industrial revolution in the 1800’s.
One needs to have passion towards mega engines, industrial machinery and a interest towards rocket science in order to pursue engineering course in mechanical stream. Mechanics is a very interesting field where you design, develop, test and supervise deployment of industrial equipment.
You need to qualify class XII exam so that you can pursue B.E (Bachelor in Engineering)/ B.Tech (Bachelor in Technology) in Mechanical course then can opt for Master’s degree. You can also opt for diploma course in this stream but still you need to complete graduation for it to have a better knowledge on things.
