MECHANICAL ENGINEERING - SCOPE, SALARY, JOB 

PROSPECTS, TOP COLLEGES


SCOPE OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING:-
Mechanical Engineers can work in Automobile industry (Production Engineer, Quality Assurance Engineer, Design Engineer, Purchase Engineer, PPC Engineer etc), Thermal power industry(Production Engineer, QA Engineer, PPC Engineer) , Gas turbines industry(Maintenance Engineer, Fire & Safety Engineer, Site Engineer), Textile Industries (Maintenance Engineer), Air conditioning and refrigeration industry (HVAC Engineer, Site Engineer,  Safety Engineer, Design Engineer, Maintenance Engineer), Research field (ISRO - Scientist, DRDO – Scientist), Oil and gas exploration and refining industries (Maintenance Engineer, Safety Engineer), Agricultural sector (Production Engineer, QA Engineer, Maintenance Engineer, Safety Engineer), Educational sector (Lecturer – B.Tech, Assistant Professor – M.Tech, Associate Professor – P.hd, Professor – P.hd with relevant experience), Aviation companies (Production Engineer, QA Engineer, Design Engineer, Maintenance Engineer, Safety Engineer, Purchase Engineer) , Shipping industries (Engine room Engineer), Aerospace industry (Production Engineer, QA Engineer, Design Engineer, Maintenance Engineer, Safety Engineer, Purchase Engineer), Armed forces (Production Engineer, QA Engineer, Design Engineer, Maintenance Engineer, Safety Engineer, Purchase Engineer), pharmaceutical (Maintenance Engineer, HVAC Engineer)and many others.

Students can also go for a teaching career after mechanical engineering. This will include teaching subjects in mechanical engineering in engineering colleges. The package is good for professors of this branch of engineering.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING – SALARY RANGE:-
The typical salary range of a Mechanical Engineer range between (1.8 LPA – 3.2 LPA) However, the salary differs as per the location, industry type, company level. If you are hired by a Multinational Company, you can expect high salary package (3.2 LPA – 4.8 LPA). Similarly, good campus placements also fetch better salary packages (2.4 LPA – 5.2 LPA). 
Additionally, some companies offer salary on the basis of your skills, experience, expertise and the nature of roles and responsibilities handled previously. Generally, highly skilled and professional mechanical engineers can bag as high as an annual CTC (5.2 LPA – 8.0 LPA)

JOB PROSPECTS:-
Mechanical Engineering finds applications in all fields of technology. The main job of a mechanical engineer is to make things work.   These “things” can be car engines, airplanes engines, power plants, air conditioners, lawn mowers or even exercise equipment’s.
Mechanical engineers can thus get employed in nearly every industry whether private or public sector, with most working for manufacturing firms and a considerable number, working in consulting services. They can get employed in government departments like
  1. Defense
  2. PWD
  3. CPWD
  4. Technical wings of armed forces
  5. Space research organization
  6. Industries like the aeronautical, agricultural, automobile, chemical, bio-medical equipment manufacturers, energy, power, electronics, steel, oil exploration and refining, railways, etc.
Once you have a degree in mechanical engineering in hand, you can then pursue a career in any related occupation like aerospace engineer, aeronautical engineer, automotive engineer, architect, nuclear engineer, tool designer, and many other such options. Those who are interested in R&D activities can get employed with many public/private sector research organizations. Academically inclined ones can also choose teaching in technical institutions as a remunerative profession. With the rapid rate of expansion in the industrial sector, the employment potential for a mechanical engineer has become very high.
