What is Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is a professional programme which helps students to understand the working mechanisms of heavy tools and machineries.  The branch applies principles of engineering, physics and material science for the design, analysis, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. The course covers technical areas like distribution of electricity through generators, transformers, transmission lines, lighting and wiring in buildings. A course in mechanical engineering makes a student gain knowledge and experience in the designing of electric motors, automobiles, aircrafts and other heavy vehicles. Mechanical engineering demands knowledge about software used in technical work like computer-aided design and mathematical modelling.

Eligibility Criteria (UG & PG) of Mechanical Engineering

  • For UG: Should have passed Class XII in Science stream with minimum 50% marks or equivalent CGPA.
  • For PG: Minimum CPI of 6.5 or 60% of marks or First Class in the qualifying degree. Bachelor's degree in Engineering and Technology.

Scope of Mechanical Engineering in India and Abroad

  • Mechanical Engineering covers aspects like design and testing among others. The job demands supervision and planning of live projects related to thermal power plants, nuclear stations, generation of electricity, etc.
  • There are employment opportunities for diploma holders who have practical knowledge of working on fields like testing of machinery etc.
  • The emerging fields in this area include renewable energy, automobiles, quality control, Industrial Automation, Mechanobiology. These are going to increase manpower in the work profile of mechanical engineering and would offer employment opportunities.

my AIR cetegry rank[ from UP ] IS 2316 CAN I GET MECHANICAL BRANCH IN TOP NITS??

sabhisheksagar_ece1804a9 1st Oct, 2020
Hello aspirants

According to the previous year, cutoff ranks for top NITs you can easily get a Mechanical seat in any NIT. But it is a bit tough to get a CSE. Hence except NIT Trichy, you can easily get a mechanical branch in Top NITs with OBC AIR 2316 as last year cutoff rank for the mechanical engineering branch was 2178 for OBC Category. Hence you can check last year's cutoffs of Institutions and branches here.

You can also predict college for your rank and category on our JEE mains 2020 College Predictor tool 2020.

Hope this answer helps you.

All the best!!!

What should i choose rv college of engineering computer science or nit patna mechanical for btech?

Dhruv 30th Sep, 2020
Hello, both are good colleges and since, you have mentioned your two options.
In my opinion Nit Patna is a good choice as it is a Nit and a highly reputed college.
Placements are good and you will have good opportunity for placements and higher studies.

If you are interested in computer science engineering then you can go with RV college.
It's depends on your interest and for which branch you will do better.

Refer to this link for Nit Patna

Please provide the score analysis of BISAT for last 5 years. What is the chance for getting admission in Mechanical engineering with a score pf 295 in 2020

ginnisachdeva02_9364270 Student Expert 30th Sep, 2020


As per previous years records you have very less chances to get mechanical engineering in bits pilani campus, however you can get chemical engineering, civil engineering, manufacturing engineering.

in BITs Goa campus you can get mechanical engg, civil engg, chemical engg and Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering.

In Bits Hydrabad campus you can get Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering.
