Mechanical Engineering is one of the oldest and the broadest disciplines in engineering that applies the principles of engineering, physics, mathematics to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. The mechanical engineering field requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity.
Mechanical Engineers work with machines and engines, from elevator technology to robotics. Students focus on areas such as heat transfer and fracture mechanics. It deals with the design, production and operation of machinery.
Most of the universities in the USA, Canada require you to give the GRE. Few universities from Germany require GRE scores. However, GRE is not required for admission to Australian universities. IELTS or TOEFL is compulsory for acquiring student visa and as a proof of English proficiency.
Mechanical students study topics like mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics in-depth. Various subjects include:
