While the working day of a mechanical engineer is as varied as the industries they work in, they typically apply a mix of analytics and technical expertise to solve problems, develop new products and technologies, and improve processes.

Employment prospects for mechanical engineers are excellent because engineering graduates and apprentices are in high demand. The automobile industry, manufacturing industries and construction companies, hire mechanical engineers. There is a wide range of job profiles for mechanical engineers that includes automation, aerospace engineers, defence and armed forces, control, instrumentation specialist, and maintenance specialist.

If you enjoy creating practical solutions to problems and turning your ideas into reality, then a career in mechanical engineering could be for you. While having a passion for math and science is essential, the diverse nature of mechanical engineering means it’s a good fit for creative people with all sorts of interests. Versatility is another unique advantage in a world undergoing constant economic, political, industrial, and social change. Mechanical engineers are educated and positioned not only to adapt but to define and direct change.

Mechanical Engineering is a vast, versatile and evergreen field that fetches enormous opportunities. It gives a natural platform to convert ideas and innovations into reality. The most significant advantage of choosing Mechanical Engineering is the wide range of available jobs in the Government, Private and Public Sectors. Most of the budding entrepreneurs, start-ups are from this field only. Sectors like manufacturing, designing, maintenance, research-development, sales etc., are the ones in which one can make his/her career.

The diverse field of mechanical engineering deals with anything that moves, including the human body, a complex machine. Mechanical engineering students learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation, design, and manufacturing to realize/understand mechanical systems. Some of the specialized subjects in mechanical engineering are biomechanics, energy conversion, materials processing, combustion, MEMS, microfluidic devices, fracture mechanics, Nanomechanics, tribology (friction and wear), and vibrations.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering provides adequate facilities to its budding engineers to perform real-time experiments and carry live projects in Automobile Engineering, Production, Thermal, Design, Mechatronics & Robotics, and many others.

NCU will provide students with creative thinking that allows them to design an exciting product or system. Analytical tools will help achieve their design goals. They develop an ability to meet several possibly conflicting constraints and learn the teamwork needed to design, market, and produce a system. These skills also prove to be valuable in other endeavours. They can help launch a career in fields other than mechanical engineering such as consulting, management, banking, finance, etc.

Faculty of mechanical engineering are actively engaged in socially relevant research and offer the opportunity for undergraduate students to participate. Pursuing research activities as an undergraduate student can be very exciting and complement your educational experience. The activities can range from setting up and running an experiment to conducting analytical or numerical analyses. Work is directly under the supervision of a faculty member and often involves graduate students. This opportunity allows students to gain unique hands-on experience in world-class basic and applied research. It is also a highly recommended addition to the resumes of students who intend to pursue graduate studies and research.

The summer break is the ideal time to gain experience in the industry and effectively prepare students for an exciting career. A summer internship working for a company can have many benefits, such as providing insight into the field, making a valuable addition to your resume when applying for jobs at graduation, establishing precious contacts, and providing summer income. It also gives you the chance to practice the engineering skills that you learn at the university.

The Mechanical Engineering Department at NCU hosts an impressive range of student-led clubs and activities. SAE student chapter, through which mechanical engineering undergraduates organize professional and social activities, such as plant tours, conference visits, and happy hours with faculty. Students in the SAE club conceive, build, and race their vehicle in different segments under different events held across the country. ISHRAE, which is related to the field of Refrigeration & Air-Conditioning. Under this society, a regular event like workshops, seminars and industrial visits are organized to get maximum exposure and hands-on experience.

The NorthCap University has a dedicated office of SPA (School of Professional Attachment), which takes care of the placement of students. Along with that, there is robust Alumni Connect which also contributes to this field.
