Mechanical engineers are focusing their attention towards new areas of research, such as nanotechnology, development of composite materials, biomedical applications, environmental conservation, etc. Mechanical engineers play a central role in such industries as automotive (from the car chassis to its every subsystem—engine, transmission, sensors); aerospace (airplanes, aircraft engines, control systems for airplanes and spacecraft); biotechnology (implants, prosthetic devices, fluidic systems for pharmaceutical industries); energy conversion (gas turbines, wind turbines, solar energy, fuel cells); environmental control (HVAC, air-conditioning, refrigeration, compressors); automation (robots, data and image acquisition, recognition, control); manufacturing (machining, machine tools, prototyping, micro fabrication). The ever increasing scope of mechanical engineering is to get into financial and marketing aspects of product development and even into people and resource management. The mechanical engineering offers a wide bouquet of job options to students who are looking for a stable and stimulating career.
At National College of Engineering adequate training and practical teaching ensures that the students are motivated with the creative thinking that allows them to design an exciting product or system, the analytical tools to achieve their design goals, the ability to overcome all constraints, and the teamwork needed to design, market, and produce a system. These valuable skills could also launch a career in medicine, law, consulting, management, banking, finance, and so on.
