BE Mechanical Engineering

BE Mechanical Engineering is an undergraduate Mechanical Engineering course. The course is designed to make the professionals who are able to work in several industries where core work is related to the mechanics.  The candidates learn subjects such as mechanics, statics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, and structural analysis. The aim is to develop that resources in the students making them expert in designing, development, construction, production, installation, operation and maintenance of tools, machines, and various other mechanical equipment. They may be placed in the factories producing items such as automobiles, trucks, airplanes, trains, space vehicles, lathes, milling machines, grinders, large steam and gas turbines, components of thermal power stations, internal combustion engines, jet engines, air conditioning and heating machines, refrigerators etc.

The duration of the course is four years and the complete syllabus of the program is divided into eight semesters. The syllabus of the first year is same for all other branches of the engineering.

BE Mechanical Engineering Eligibility

  • The candidates must be passed in the 10+2 examination with the subjects like Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics from a recognized school board.
  • The percentage criteria may vary depending on the institution providing the course but in general, they should at least score 50% as aggregate marks.
