New Trending Courses For Mechanical Engineering Students 2017
Trending Courses For Mechanical Engineering After B.E/ B.tech Students
Just being mechanical engineer and that too in India from average colleges is not going to land you anywhere. Competition is so much that You have to be specialized in some field.
Mechanical engineering consists whole range of subjects like Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Thermal Engineering, Designing, Power Plant Engineering, HVAC, Metrology and Quality Control, Production Engineering, Maintenance Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering. It finally opens up job prospects in design, production, manufacturing and maintenance.
3D Design Modelling Software’s:
We present below a list of popular job-oriented courses after mechanical engineering:
There are many software for mechanical and one cannot learn those software takes much time and requires a lot of patience.
Now let me expalin all the software for you.
1. Autocad- The very basic software mostly used drafting purpose.
2. Solidworks– The best software for design consisting of welded joints.
3. Creo- Best software for solid modelling.
4. Catia- Software with more tools for surface modelling.
5. Nx Cad- Software for reverse engineering i.e., it can can be used to edit the drafted models which cannot be done in other software.
Designing is very crucial state, we have to satisfy all the requirements and all calculations after that we go for part modelling. Each software has its unique importance. Learning Design software is always trendy.
- ANALYSIS Engineer:
It is the second stage, after modeling design we have to do So many calculations and analysis like static analysis, dynamic analysis, thermal analysis, harmonic analysis etc. So there are many software for doing analysis like ANSYS, NASTRAN, ABACUS etc. And as long as design exists analysis also exists so learning analysis software is also a good option.
Now lets see about the softwares used for analysing.
1. Ansys- It is the most versatile and most used analysing software almost everywhere.
2. Hypermesh- It is used only for meshing purpose
3. Nastron- It is also one of the developing software now a days.
4. Matlab- Most complicated software for Finite Eliment Analysis.
- CNC Programming/ CAD/CAM Engineering
CAM means computer aided manufacturing . Here we simulate the manufacturing operations in computer to extract cnc programme. There are few cam software like DELCAM, MASTERCAM etc.
- M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering
The ever-popular advanced course is an M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering. All major institutes such as the IITs, NITs, BITS and others offer M.Tech courses in Mechanical Engineering. This is a 2-year full time program to be taken after a B.Tech. For working engineering graduates, this is a 3-year part time regular program. Admission for M.Tech courses depends either on the bachelor’s degree in (B.E/B.Tech) or on the Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE ) score and an interview.
- Piping Design and Engineering Course
This is an excellent job-oriented course as it makes students industry-ready. It is one of the courses recommended by experts after one completes graduation in Mechanical Engineering. Not all engineering graduates are eligible to take up this course. Piping course has concepts of mechanical engineering included in it, which makes it relevant for a mechanical engineer to study this course as compared to other engineering backgrounds.
- Master of Engineering in Tool Design
It is a highly lucrative course for graduates in Mechanical Engineering. This can be 2-year full time courses or short-term diploma and certificate courses.
The long-term courses offered by various institutes are
- M.E. in CAD/CAM
- M.E. in Tool Design
- Post Graduate Course in Tool, Die and Mould Design
- Post Diploma in Tool Design
- Advanced Diploma in Tool and Die Making (ADTDM)
- M. Tech (Mechatronics)
The subjects of specialisation are Auto CAD CNC Programming, Application of Hydraulics and Pneumatics in Tool Design, Unigraphics (CAD and CAM), CATIA (CAD), ANSYS (CAE), Material Specification and Heat Treatment, Concept of Reverse Engineering, Press Tools, Die Casting Dies, Plastic Moulds, etc.
- Automation and Robotics Courses:
Robotics is a field of engineering that deal with design and application of robots and the use of computer for their manipulation and processing. Robots are used in industries for speeding up the manufacturing process. They are also used in the field of nuclear science, sea-exploration, servicing of transmission electric signals, designing of bio-medical equipments etc. Robotics requires the application of computer integrated manufacturing, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, biological mechanics, software engineering.
Automation and Robotics Engineering is the use of control systems and information technologies to reduce the need for human work in the production of goods and services. In the scope of industrialization, automation is a step beyond mechanization.
- Computational Fluid Dynamics
The course deals with the numerical solution of equations governing fluid flow and would be of interest to engineers and scientists—both aspiring and professional—with chemical/ mechanical/ civil/ aerospace engineering applications. In all these fields, one needs to deal extensively with fluid flow related phenomena and one needs to resolve flow-related features of the processes and equipment. Although the equations governing fluid flow have been formulated more than 150 years ago, it is only in recent years that these are being solved in the practical applications in which the flow occurs. The course deals with the basic techniques that enable the numerical solution of these equations.
