Mechanical Engineering encompasses areas such as energy, fluid mechanics, dynamics, combustion, vibration, design, manufacturing processes, systems modeling and simulation, mechatronics, robotics, mechanics of material, rapid prototyping and composites. It deals with all aspects of the conversion of thermal energy into useful work and the machines that make this possible. Mechanical engineering is also referred to as the ‘mother’ of all engineering branches.

An appealing feature of mechanical engineering is that the application base of this field of study is extremely broad and diverse. If you are intrigued by how things work, fascinated by robots and automobile engines, then mechanical engineering is the profession for you. Mechanical Engineering Department in L.D.C.E covers a vast number of areas including Thermodynamics, Manufacturing processes, Fluid mechanics, Solid mechanics, Heat transfer, Machine design, Industrial Engineering, Production Technology, Control Engineering etc.
