Bachelors in Engineering is undoubtedly one of the most common and safest career choice made by students. However, choosing an engineering discipline from the wide array of options can feel like searching for a needle from the needle stack. 

Today we shall make try to make this decision easier by discussing the benefits of pursuing the oldest and broadest branch of engineering, that is regarded as mother branch of engineering- Mechanical Engineering! 

Put simply, Mechanical Engineering deals with machines and their mechanisms. Be it components as small as sensors or switches or systems as large as satellites or spacecraft, the knowledge and principles of mechanical engineering play a pivotal role in their development and design, manufacture, testing, and maintenance. A career in this field allows you to build a future for yourself and for the world as it revolves around meeting the ever-evolving needs of humans!  

  • Be at the heart of future technologies:  

Do you know what do the inventors of electricity, printing press and trains had in common? Well, they were all mechanical engineers! By pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering, you get a chance to be at the heart of such revolutions, improve lives and inspire future generations. You could develop cleaner environment-friendly technologies or next-generation AI-powered gadgets and make a significant impact in the society. 

  • Gain versatility:  

Thanks to the rich curriculum and practical exposure that this rewarding program offers, mechanical engineering graduates turn out to be multi-talented individuals who are equipped with skills that work across multiple functional domains! 

This is because students majoring in mechanical engineering not only gain well-rounded technical knowledge of in field of computer applications, electricity, mathematics, structures, physics, etc., (in addition to mastery over the core subject!) but also a basic grasp of social, economic and environmental elements of engineering. 

  • Career prospects 

A career in Mechanical Engineering is not only lucrative but also high in demand. Talent Shortage Report, 2020 of Manpower Group showed that India faced a talent shortage of 63 percent of which mechanical engineers formed a significant portion of the domains that faced supply demand discrepancy.  

Even a company (like that of detergent or cosmetics) that does not specialize in core mechanical engineering functions seeks the expertise of mechanical engineer for different tasks (like packaging and product design in a detergent company). 

To top it all off, the degree, by virtue of inculcating versatile skills and knowledge in the graduates, serves as launchpad for career in aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, marine, power, biomedical, energy, etc. this means that you can plunge into a field that matches your interests and aspirations.  A few job profiles you can look forward to include Automotive Engineer, Research & development Supervisor, Project Engineer, Control and Instrumentation, Manufacturing Sector, etc. 

Plus, the employment opportunities after B.Tech (ME) are not restricted to one’s own country. One can move to another nation and take the significant leap in career.  

Wrapping up: It goes without saying that the university you graduate from holds paramount importance. NAAC A+ accredited, Graphic Era Deemed to be University, for instance, is a great place to study. Ranked 64 in the MHRD’s NIRF, GEU stands tall as the best engineering college in Dehradun and Uttarakhand. The B.Tech ME program at Graphic Era is NBA accredited and has been designed with the support of Tata Technologies to address the industry-academia gap. Also, the students benefit from experiential learning through five Centres of Excellence Labs instituted within the campus. The regular guest lectures, seminars, and workshops also facilitates their transformation into into future-ready engineers.
