The 2-year course consists of 4 semesters which also includes a project in the final year.
M.Tech Engineering courses are offered by most Public and Private Universities, where the research work for the students and professors will be appreciated.
The eligibility for the course is to complete ones (10+2) Secondary and Higher secondary with a minimum of 50% in the corresponding courses.
The applicants have to qualify the Entrance Exams to get admission in the colleges which provide the course.
Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies the principles of engineering, physics, and materials science for the design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems.
It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery.
It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
Heat and Mass Transfer
Theory of Machines
The aspirants should have a degree of Bachelors of Technology [B.Tech]/ Bachelor of Engineering [BE] with a minimum of 50% in their corresponding subjects for qualifying the eligibility criteria for the course.
The mechanical engineering field requires an understanding of core areas which includes:
Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like:
Product lifecycle management to design
Analyze manufacturing plants
Industrial equipment and machinery
Heating and cooling systems
Weapons and others
The main reason to do a masters in mechanical will be to have deeper learning about different aspects of Mechanical Engineering as mechanical engineering is a huge sector on its own.
The two years spent in M.Tech Mechanical Engineering will add to your technical skills and hence increase your chances of getting hired.
Chemical and pharmaceuticals industry
Oil and gas industry
Power and energy industry
Working with the internationally acclaimed companies like Audi, Mini Cooper and BMW in their manufacturing and R&D sector will be a dream come true for the professionals pursuing the course.
Internship from any Public or Private Sector companies like Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai will allow professionals to understand the practical application of their bookish knowledge and also for getting hired by other organizations.
