B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering : Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) is a 4-year undergraduate professional engineering course that is the most popular course option for students who want to pursue their studies after the 12th board and is available in specializations such as B.Tech Computer Science, B.Tech Mechanical Engineering, B.Tech Biotechnology, B.Tech IT, B.Tech in ECE (Electronics & Communication), and B.Tech Electrical Engineering, among others. It is a gateway into engineering courses in India.
B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and versatile fields of engineering. Mechanical engineering is based on the principles of physics, material science, and engineering for the design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It plays an important role in all aspects of human life as it involves conducting engineering analysis (structural, thermal, vibrational, static, and dynamic), developing functional prototypes, and applying manufacturing technologies.
VITEEE 2022 Extended: VIT Extended VITEEE Registration date till Jun 15, 2022 due to public demand. VIT Campuses opens B. Tech application 2022. Candidates can apply online to the official VITEEE Website.
Mechanical engineering involves the design, production, and operation of machinery, including designing new batteries, athletic equipment, medical devices, personal computers, air conditioners, electric power plants, and automobile engines, among others. This 4-year undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering prepares students to apply the principles of this program to the designing, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems.
The eligibility criteria of B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering:
- The candidate should have a minimum 10+2 qualification from a recognized board.
- Must have compulsorily studied Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics at the qualifying level.
Topics covered in Mechanical Engineering:
The topics that are usually covered in Mechanical Engineering are automotive systems, combustion/internal combustion engine, fluid mechanics, hydraulics, pneumatics, fuels, thermodynamics, HVAC, tribology, robotics, mechatronics, and Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM).
Why is VIT (Vellore Institute of Technology) an ideal place for Mechanical Engineering?
The B. Tech in Mechanical Engineering at VIT creates a strong intellectual foundation among students in the fields of Automation, Automotive, Design, Energy, Industrial, Manufacturing, and Thermal engineering. The programme develops the relevant engineering fundamentals, includes various experiences in their application, and introduces the important methods and techniques of engineering practice. VIT Mechanical Engineering School has got a team of highly qualified faculty members, holding PhDs from numerous elite institutions around the globe. The Govt. of India has recognized VIT’s Mechanical Engineering division for its research activities, as well as the department has received numerous research funding from prominent government agencies such as DST, DRDO, MNRE, CSIR, CVRDE, and CPDO, among others.
VIT Mechanical Engineering division assists local industries in product design, complex-part manufacturing and Computational Fluid Dynamics. The courses offered cater to the needs of Aerospace, Defense, Manufacturing, Energy and Automotive industries. This has enabled the students to pursue higher studies in leading Universities in India and abroad.
VITEEE – Vellore Institute of Technology Entrance Exam:
VITEEE (Vellore Institute of Technology Engineering Entrance Exam) is a national level engineering entrance examination, which offers admission to 20 B.Tech programs at VIT campuses located in Vellore, Chennai, Amravati-AP, and Bhopal. Every year, approximately 2 lakh aspirants attempt this exam to grab one of the 5,000 available seats. Candidates have appeared in the admission process that spanned across 28 states, eight union territories, and 12 countries (Middle East, Indonesia, Nepal, Nigeria, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, UK, and Singapore) across the globe.
The VITEEE exam will consist of 125 questions for which there will be a time limit of 2 hours and 30 minutes, and the exam will be divided into 5 sections, namely Physics, Chemistry, English, Aptitude, and Mathematics/Biology. Individuals who take Math’s, Physics, English, Chemistry, and Aptitude will be considered for all engineering programs. Any candidate appearing for Biology, Chemistry, Physics, English, and aptitude tests will be eligible for B. Tech Bio stream programmes only. The best part of VITEEE exam is that there is no negative marking for wrong answers.
VIT Vellore offers excellent employment opportunities, with an average payout of INR 6-8 lakhs for engineers. Google, Microsoft, TCS, Wipro, Dyte, and Cognizant have all repeatedly visited the VIT campus in search of engineering talent. At VIT, the highest CTC was INR 75 LPA.
