Course Details

Without mechanical engineering, we would not have things like engines, generators, elevators or even air conditioning. While we might not even realize it, we most likely use something that has been mechanically engineered every day.

mechanical engineering plays a critical role in manufactured technologies, from cars to airplanes to refrigerators. It enables you to do many daily activities with ease, as it brings helpful technologies to our modern society. It is one of the most important subdivisions of engineering, because without it, many of the technologies we use every day would not be available.

As the term mechanical Engineering (ME) indicates it implies an association with the word ‘mecanism’. Thus, mechanical Engineering involves the study, design, manufacturing, maintenance and production of the concept of material science, low of physics, environment condition and maintenance. It continues to be the earliest and most comprehensive regimen of Engineering.
