Scope of Mechanical Engineering
Engineering is one such field that has always been high in demand among the students when it comes to career choices. There are a lot of domains in Engineering that sometimes create confusion amongst the students regarding which field of engineering to choose. Mechanical Engineering is one such domain of engineering that not many people are actually fascinated with. The reason behind is that most people have a perception that Mechanical Engineering will not fetch them with good jobs in the long run if they choose this domain as their career option.
However, this is actually a myth as there is a lot of scope that one may explore in this field. This blog will cover some of the various industries that invite Mechanical Engineers, thereby making it an attractive field to choose as career.
Scope of Mechanical Engineers
Manufacturing Industry: Mechanical Engineers usually involve in designing or redesigning the mechanical and thermal devices. Besides, they investigate the failures of equipments and provide solutions to tackle them. Moreover, mechanical engineers these days use technology to build machineries. There are softwares like CAD which help them to create their designs on their own followed by testing the performance of the machinery. Every manufacturing unit requires quality machinery to produce their products and this is where the role of Mechanical Engineer becomes vital who is responsible behind every process of the machinery.
Automobile Industry: Electronic cars have become a sensation in the world. This is one field where the demand of Mechanical Engineers is going to increase exponentially due to the surge in demand for electric vehicles in the market. The research and development to produce battery based power systems and electric motors will be carried out by Mechanical Engineers and therefore make their role much more important in this sector.
Aerospace Industry: From rockets to satellites, all of these are designed by the Mechanical Engineers. The body, the structure, testing and all other requirements are taken care of by the mechanical engineers. As the expertise in this industry is increasing with every passing day, various job roles are therefore offered to the Mechanical Engineers in this sector from designing to manufacturing as well as from testing to Research and Development.
Defense Industry: There is a special department assigned to Mechanical Engineers in the defense industry where the engineers are responsible to design the complex mechanical systems. They are responsible to ensure that the thermal properties, mass, manufacture and its assembling properties are well aligned according to land, air and water. Due to such important roles and responsibilities, demand for Mechanical Engineers is usually high in this sector.
With such demanding jobs and the responsibilities associated with it, taking up this course as a subject opens the door to many opportunities in several industries. Apart from the industries mentioned in the blog, there are other industries queued up to hire mechanical engineers in their field such as Chemical Industry, Construction Industry, Marine Industry. With technology becoming advanced, new developments such as nanotechnology and robotics will also attract many employment opportunities for Mechanical Engineers.
