    Mechanical engineers are in demand in various well paid segments like automobiles, space centers, trucks, airplanes, and trains among others. They would also be dealing with many other useful activities like the economical combustion of fuels and the application of mechanical energy to do various tasks.Mechanical Engineering offers a strong base for professional engineering practice, and in many other related segments.preparing project mechanical engineering is the key to success. No matter what type of project you choose, make sure you take the time to consider all relevant factors.

    Hi – some great work here. I particularly like this post. I was just wondering if you’d like to have your own mechanical engineering blog on my site, the Mechanical Design Forum? You might find a better and appreciative audience than here, and would probably receive more feedback. We now have over 6,000 members, lots of traffic, and your latest posts would also get showcased on the main page of our new mobile apps! (Details of mobile apps:

    Here’s a link to the blog section, should you wish to start a blog:

    Just a thought, but keep up the good work anyhow!

    Is it the Right Career for Me?
    Like other career paths, the entry into this particular branch of engineering also requires you to possess certain basic traits. First and foremost, you must have a penchant for mechanical components and machinery and how these machines work. Then you must be good at physics, chemistry and mathematics. You must also have skills such as an analytical bent of mind, logical reasoning and problem solving. Further, you must have immense patience, physical strength, ability to work for long hours and an inventive spirit that are essential ingredients for becoming a successful mechanical engineer.

    How about using what you learnt, and use correct spelling and grammar……

    • engineermechanical Says:

      Thanks for your suggestion. I’ll edit my articles. I just wrote what came to my mind and didn’t care about the spelling and grammar. I didn’t know it would be taken seriously and piss off my readers. Suggestion accepted.

    if you hold degree in mechanical engineering can u get job in automobile industry or u have to do degree in automobile engineering….. plz reply fast. give some additional info to get job in worldclass automobile industries…..

    • engineermechanical Says:

      You can definitely get a job in the automobile industry if you hold a mechanical engineering degree. In fact mechanical engineering is the mother of all engineering branches. Sometime mechanical engineering graduates are more favoured than the specialist automobile or aerospace engineers since they have a greater breadth of knowledge!
