Course Details

Mechanical and Automotion

Mechanical and automation engineering is the branch which mainly focuses on designing and manufacturing of machines. Engineers design and assemble engines and power plants, structures and vehicles of all sizes and deals with use of machines, control systems and information technology. This branch teaches the techniques and principles of mechanics, materials and energy to design as well as manufacture machines and devices of all kinds. This engineer has a range of high-level skills in two complementary areas: mechanical engineering and automation. This engineering domain involves the resolution of any technical and scientific problem involved in the study, development, size, design, manufacturing and industrialization of an automated mechanical device.

FUTURE PROSPECTS

Manufacturing is increasingly moving toward automated processes to reduce the amount of labor needed. Thus, mechanical and automation engineers are expected to have good job prospects in the coming years. Mechanical engineers are required in both private & public sector industries of various types like automobile, chemical, electronics, steel plants, oil exploration and refining, technical wings of armed forces, space research organization, etc. On the other hand Automation is the latest trending technology in many fields especially in industries like manufacturing, control systems, mining, etc.
