Mechanical Engineering

Program Overview


Every process requires power and energy and this is generated in power plants which could be different in their modes of production such as thermal, nuclear, hydro etc. This branch of mechanical engineering mainly utilizes the principles of thermodynamics and uses equipment like alternators, boilers etc.


This branch of mechanical engineering relates to the operation and maintenance of propulsion and other machines on board ships. The machinery on a ship ranges from main propulsion plant, auxiliary generators, boilers, purifiers, pumps and so forth.


This specialised branch of mechanical engineering deals with vehicles that ply on roads rather than sea or air. Again it could involved several sub-parameters which in turn require specialized skills of their own such as safety engineer, design engineer and so on, who take care of different aspects of automotive engineering during its design, manufacturing or maintenance.


Known more popularly as CAE and used in combination with CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing), it is mainly refers to the use of computers and relevant software for carrying out design, analysis, simulation of various machines and procedures. It is used in various disciplines such as automobile design, naval architecture etc. to name a few.
