What is the difference between production engineering and mechanical engineering? Give me the scope of both the engineering.
Production is an important aspect in any industry and with the rapidly expanding industrial sector looking to plug the demand and supply gap for skilled professionals, the employment potential for talented mechanical engineers is quite high in both the private or public sector industries. As a B Tech mechanical you have the option of dealing with design and production of tools, machines and all other mechanical equipment to be used in industries. A mechanical engineer can work and handle all types of machinery in industries and all aspects of their mechanism and functioning; he is also into the design, development, construction, production, installation, operation and maintenance; such as large steam and gas turbines, components of thermal power stations, internal combustion engines, jet engines, machine tools, air conditioning and heating machines, refrigerators etc to name a few. Mechanical Engineers are also responsible for maintenance and repair of the devices. A bulk of mechanical engineering jobs are in manufacturing mostly in machinery, transportation equipment, electrical equipment, instrumentation, and fabricated metal product industries.
Both have scopes for placement in their respective fields.
Hope this solves your query.
