Why Study Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is a discipline that forms the basis for almost all the other Engineering disciplines. This is because core knowledge and competencies provided in Mechanical Engineering are essentially in the common trunk of any branch of Engineering. This is also the discipline of Engineering that is most versatile and the one that is closely linked to most of the day to day demands and needs of the humankind. Mechanical Engineering is undoubtedly accepted as the discipline equipped with the widest spectrum of tools that could provide engineering solutions to most of the challenging problems encountered in fostering the development of the human society in any national context at any given point in time. It also paves the path to reach the goal of developing a very challenging, exciting and a rewarding professional career of a young scientifically and technically curious undergraduate.

Conclusively, Mechanical Engineering encompasses the planning, designing, analysing, testing, manufacturing and continuous development of products and systems that are used in every facet of modern society and thereby inspires young undergraduates who wish to embark on a challenging professional career to contribute to national development and render services to humankind.
