Introduction to Mechanical Engineering

Diploma in Mechanical Engineering is a three years program and the course deals with the study of mechanics, statics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, and structural analysis used in designing, development, construction, production, installation, operation and maintenance of tools, machines and various other mechanical equipment such as automobiles, trucks, airplanes, trains, space vehicles, lathes, milling machines, grinders, large steam and gas turbines, components of thermal power stations, internal combustion engines, jet engines, air conditioning and heating machines, refrigerators etc. In short, this diploma course mainly focuses on the study of application of the principles of mechanics and energy to the design of machines and devices.

Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Course Suitability

Applicants who have abilility to solve problems using both logic and creative/innovative approaches; numerate and highly computer literate, with excellent analytical skills are the most suitable for it.

Second, who are able to plan and prioritise, work to deadlines and under pressure; capable of careful attention to detail, exercising good judgement and accepting responsibility are also good for it.

Third, who are able to communicate with others and work in multidisciplinary teams are also good match for it.

How is Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Course Beneficial?

Mechanical Engineering knowledge can be applied in all other fields of engineering and so demand for a Mechanical Engineer is high compared to other engineers of different fields, so it serves as an all-purpose engineering degree.

Holder of Diploma in Mechanical Engineering can always look for a career in related occupations such as aerospace engineer, aeronautical engineer, automotive engineer, architect, nuclear engineer, tool designer, and many other occupations.

The new developing fields of biotechnology, materials science and nanotechnology will open up various new job areas for Mechanical Engineers.
