What is Mechanical engineering?

According to Wikipedia, Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, and materials science principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.

To put it in another way, Mechanical Engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the study of machines & their mechanics. And as far as machines are considered, Aamir Khan gave the best definition of 'Machine' in the movie 3 Idiots.


'A machine is anything that reduces human effort & saves time'. Whether it be a Fan or calculator or a mobile phone, all of them are machines. In fact, machines surround us. From the pen's nib to the pant's zip, everything is a machine.

As a matter of fact, everything with physical appearance falls the under the mechanical department, This makes mechanical the widest branch of engineering.

Evergreen Nature of Mechanical Engineering

You might have heard about this a lot of times. Many say that Mechanical Engineers can work in any field and i.e. why its evergreen. Here are my reasons for why mechanical is the evergreen branch.


What are different Mechanical Products?

--> Mechanical products are divided into two categories. Although, Mechanical engineering deals with anything that moves, from the littlest small scale molecule to the biggest rocket. But mechanical also plays an important role in the products without motion.


Job roles and responsibilities of a 'Mechanical Engineer'

--> Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, build, and test mechanical products. Mechanical engineers typically do the following:-

  • Analyze problems to see how mechanical product might help solve the problem.
  • Design or redesign mechanical products using analysis and computer-aided design.
  • Develop and test prototypes of devices they design.
  • Analyze the test results and change the design as needed.
  • Oversee the manufacturing process for the device.

Skills Required for being a 'Mechanical Engineer'

--> An Engineer requires tons of skills especially a Mechanical Engineer. Top 5 skills every mechanical engineer should have are as follows:-

  1. Creativity & Problem Solving Nature.
  2. Good Communications Skills.
  3. CAD (Computer Aided Design) & Microsoft Office Suite Experience.
  4. Knowledgeable of Machining and Manufacturing Process.
  5. Drafting Standards and Geometric, Dimension, & Tolerancing (GD&T).

Salary of a 'Mechanical Engineer' [INDIA]

--> According to PayScale, we have following data:-


The data shows the average salary of a Mechanical Engineer is 3.45 Lacs per annum. But the average pay scale is different for a mechanical engineer who is a 'Fresher'.

Salary started in small industries: Rs 10,000/- to 20,000/- per month.

Salary started in large industries: Rs 15000/- to Rs 35000/- per month

Nevertheless, after few years of experience, mechanical becomes one of the highest pay scales branches.

Dream Mechanical Companies in INDIA

There are several big mechanical companies in India. Here, is the list of top 25 mechanical companies in India:-


To summarize, I would like to say mechanical is one of the difficult & the coolest branch of engineering. Difficult because it is not easy to design a space shuttle and Coolest because what is more cooler than designing a space shuttle.
