Mechanical Engineering (Production)
About The Course
Mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, production and operation of machines and tools. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.
Mechanical engineering emerged as a field during the industrial revolution in Europe in the 19th century; however, its development can be traced back several thousand years around the world.
> The field has continually evolved to incorporate advancements in technology, and mechanical engineers today are pursuing developments in such fields as composite, mechatronics, and nano technology.
> Mechanical engineering overlaps with Aerospace engineering, Civil engineering, Electrical engineering, and Petroleum engineering to varying amounts.
