It is a known fact that engineering itself
is divided into four core branches: Electrical and Electronics, Mechanical,
Chemical, and Civil.
Mechanical engineers are creative
professionals that deal with the production, development, and design of
mechanical instruments. It is one of the broadest branches of engineering with
applications in almost all types of industries.
Industrial engineering deals with making
critical decisions in both engineering and business settings. It involves
making critical decisions like creating maximum efficiency in the manufacturing
process, cost analysis, quality control, and the optimization of employee
Mechanical and Industrial Engineering opens
up a wide variety of avenues in both engineering and management fields, as it
combines the creativity of mechanical engineering with the business acumen and
problem-solving tactics of industrial engineering.
