Mechanical engineering: Mechanical Engineering is the discipline that applies the principles of engineering, physics and materials science for the design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
PRODUCTION ENGINEERING: The Production Engineering is a branch of Mechanical Engineering which is basically a combination of manufacturing technology, engineering sciences with management science. The aim is to accomplish the production process in a smoothest and most-economic way.
A production engineer typically has a wide knowledge of engineering practices and is aware of the management challenges related to production.
The production engineer possesses a wide set of skills, competences and attitudes based on market and scientific knowledge. These abilities are fundamental for the performance of coordinating and integrating professionals of multidisciplinary teams.
The production engineer should be able to:
Work opportunities are available in public and private sector manufacturing organizations engaged in implementation, development and management of new production processes, information and control systems, and computer controlled inspection, assembly and handling.
SCOPE OF PRODUCTION ENGINEERING
At present scope of production engineer is huge. Usually in multinational companies a production engineer controls a manufacturing department etc. In my view point a company cannot run smoothly without the help of production engineers because these engineers deal with everything starting from procurement of raw materials to the processes involved till it reach the market.
There are lot of openings in different fields. A few fields where production engineer get placed are:
You can also go for higher studies to make your career firm. It is always beneficiary for a production engineer to opt MBA as his higher studies. I as a production engineer prefer MBA because we mainly get placed in production management etc. It is because unlike other branches production engineering involves management. MBA is going to help you a lot. It is better to get a work experience of 2 years in a manufacturing or core company and then go for MBA. If you have a work experience of 3 years in any manufacturing or core companies then you can also go for executive MBA that unlike other MBA’s can be completed in 1 year (because of your work experience). You can also do post-graduation cheaply but with more value. In India graduates who are interested in research go for M.Tech. But I highly recommend NIT’s or IIT’s for M.Tech.
Colleges and Universities: There are a large number of Colleges and Universities which are providing B.Tech, M.Tech, MBA courses in Production Engineering. Few of them are listed below:
