Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and popular engineering disciplines. It includes subjects like Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Designing, Power Plant Engineering, HVAC, Quality Control, Production engineering and Manufacturing Engineering. It creates job avenues in design, production, yield, and maintenance. Keep reading to know more about courses after mechanical engineering.
You need to choose the field which interests you and as per your ability. After completion of B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering, you can go for higher studies or find a job for yourself.
Here we share a list of several job-oriented courses which you can pursue after your mechanical engineering:
Every big institute like the IITs, NITs, BITS, and others provide M.Tech courses in Mechanical Engineering. A 2-year full-time program can be pursued after B.Tech. For professional engineering graduates, this is a part-time program for 3-years.
2. Piping Design and Engineering Course:
A job-oriented course that will make you industry-ready. One of the most recommended courses by experts after completion of graduation in Mechanical Engineering. Not every engineering graduate are eligible for the course. The piping course includes some concepts which are relevant to a mechanical engineer and hence makes it difficult for other engineering graduates.
Courses offered by the institutes:
-M.Tech in Piping Design and Engineering
-Post Graduate Diploma in Piping Design Engineering
-Certificate Course in Piping Design & Drafting
-Certificate Course Pipe Stress Analysis
-Diploma in Piping Technology
While course duration of M.Tech and PG Diploma are 2 years, the certificate courses are though short-term and range from 3 months to 1 year.
There are job avenues in Merchant Navy, Petroleum and Refinery sectors, etc.
3. Master of Engineering in Tool Design:
One of the most lucrative courses in Mechanical Engineering. The courses duration is about 2 years or a short-term diploma and certificate courses. The long-term courses available are:
-M.E. in CAD/CAM
-M.E. in Tool Design
-PG Course in Tool, Die & Mould Design
-Post Diploma in Tool Design
-Advanced Diploma in Tool & Die Making (ADTDM)
-M. Tech (Mechantronics)
It is preferable to do the course from institutes recognized by AICTE. The Central Institute of Tool Design, Hyderabad, is one of the best institutes for offering tool designing courses.
4. Robotics Course:
This is an emerging field in engineering, and offer lots of career opportunities for the robotic engineers.
Courses available are:
-Diploma in Robotics
-ME in Robotics Engineering
-ME in Robotics
-ME in Advanced Robotics
-ME in Robotics & Automation Engineering
-ME in Mechatronics Engineering
-ME in Automation and Robotics
-ME in Automation & Robotics
-ME in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics
Some big universities which offer the courses are the IITs, Jadavpur University (Kolkata), University of Hyderabad, SRM University, (Kattamkulathur Chennai), etc.
There is career prospect in military, medical and automotive industries for making experimental robotics and so on.
5. Mechatronics Course:
This is a course with five disciplines: mechanics, informatics, electronics, automation, and robotics.
Courses available are:
-Master of Engineering in Mechatronics Engineering
-Master of Technology in Mechatronics Engineering
Some institutes which provide these courses are Karpagam College of Engineering, VIT University, and Madras Institute of Technology.
After doing the courses, there is a career scope in the electronics industry, automobile, mining, transport, O&G, defence, robotics and aviation, army, navy, air force, etc.
A brilliant course for Mechanical graduates. It includes the study of applied science, engineering, and technology.
Courses available are:
-Master of Technology in Nanotechnology
-Master of Science in Nanotechnology
-Master of Engineering in Nanotechnology
To get enroled in this course, a candidate must be a graduate with 50% marks in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics or B.Tech in Mechanical/Biomedical/Biotechnology /Electronics / Computer Science from recognized University.
Nanotechnology professionals have great career demand in products, electronics, and healthcare markets, pharmaceutical, as investment counselors in biotechnology, R&D in government, private research institutes, product development etc.
Another popular option for mechanical engineers. You can opt for PG diploma programme in management or MBA from famous business schools or institutions. This offers various career opportunities.
