What is Mechanical Engineering

  • Mechanical Engineering gives expertise in the analysis of problems, test prototypes that how thermal and mechanical devices might help to solve a particular problem.
  • Mechanical engineers can change the design and system as needed. Mechanical Engineering covers subjects in fluid mechanics, mechanics of solids, Thermodynamics, Fluid Machinery, Mechanics of Machinery, etc. 


  • Pass in 10+2 (American 12th grade or equivalent with physics or mathematics or English as a compulsory subject with botany or chemistry)
  • The candidate should have a minimum percentage of marks taken together in mathematics or physics or any one of the optional subjects.
