BE projects for Mechanical

Well…When you hear the word “Mechanical Engineering projects”, what’s the first thing that pops into your mind?

  • A lot of physical activity
  • Nuts, bolts, and screwdrivers
  • Greasy hands, with vehicle oil and dust all over our body…to be frank we imagine a cycle mechanic. Don’t we?
  • Vehicle gears, engines, machines, and all the typical mech stuff.
  • Use of design and other software and finally
  • Building up a vehicle

So mechanical engineering also called ‘Royal Mech’ or ‘Mother of all engineering branches’ is one of the oldest and first branches of engineering which has a link-up with every other branch of engineering like civil, chemical, electrical and of course even computer science as well. So it is never easy for a person who took mechanical engineering to gain knowledge only by studying theory.

Do you really think that you can gain knowledge without any practical experience? No right…So, for getting a true essence of mechanical engineering why not get into some mechanical projects so that you get a taste of mechanical concepts and what else can be a better way to develop your curriculum.

So, if you have what it takes to be part of a mechanical project, you are in the right place for guidance and suggestions.

How can I get project ideas?

So, there are a lot of factors that come into the equation like financial constraints, physical condition, expert guidance, a balance between academics and projects and many more barriers when we do a mechanical project. But the very one we encounter is that of the idea of the project. How and from where do I get an idea? Even if you get an idea, you need to think about whether it is feasible, useful, efficient and creative enough to be the standout among the other ideas.

So one of the best ways to get project ideas are by reading books, understanding concepts and knowing where to apply them, by browsing through the internet and getting good reference ideas and most importantly by observing the nature and develop an idea with your innovative skills, linking up your theoretical concepts with practical work and gain immense knowledge.

Is Academic Project Important?

So, as we have discussed above, if you really want to get a true and deep understanding of concepts and link up your book knowledge with your practical knowledge and develop your practical knowledge and skills, you need to take part in such projects, don’t you think so?

Another important thing is that, along with the knowledge you gain here, you will be able to get an estimate of the questions asked for your placement interview and in other related aspects. Although there are problems like financial constraints and other things you can overcome such things by getting sponsorships and funding from the college.

Also, why not take this as an opportunity as an advantage and make this project a point in your CV.

Hence the academic project is very much needed in our curriculum.

Given below are a few competitions through which you can gain hands-on experience:

  • Effi cycle India conducted by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) is one such exciting competition wherein students need to design and make a 3 wheeled vehicle with the facilities available in their respective universities without any external professional help which runs mechanically as well as electrically.
  • BAJA is another competition conducted by the same organization but for a change, students must design and create a buggy without any external professional help.
  • Enduro Student India design competition conducted by ESI India is another very good competition.
  • American society of mechanical engineers is another organization that conducts various events like Human-powered vehicle challenge (HPVC), drone making and robot making competition.

How to Start Building a Mechanical Project?

The first challenge you will be facing when you want to take part in a project is, how do I start it?

  • Well, the answer to your question is that you start off by creating a design of your project in software so that you get the first impression on how to go about your project.
  • The second thing is that you make a list of parts required and start estimating a budget for your project so that you can get a rough idea of whether your project is economical and marketable or not.
  • After that, depending on your project’s budget you can go for sponsorships or public funding or other necessary means and then choose an experienced professor as your project guide to help you out.
  • Then you can start fabricating your mechanical project under your project guide and keep purchasing components as and when you need them
  • Another important factor is that you need to research on which quality and company of tools and components you need that are suitable for your project. This is the first step towards developing your practical knowledge.

After the above basic steps, you can go on and build your project.

What skills do mechanical engineers need?

What skills do mechanical engineers need?

Well, so the best part of taking part in such a project is that you will get to learn new things and your skills would improve a lot.

So initially although you might not have what it takes to do a mechanical project apart from the determination and passion, you will later need to learn lab work procedures like cutting, profiling, grinding, you need to have an idea about basic electronics like battery, cable connections, using a multimeter, welding, using various equipment like the vertical milling machine, lathe machine and most importantly you need to learn design software like AUTOCAD, SOLIDWORKS, ANSYS, MATHLAB, etc…

So, now do you have an idea about the amount of exposure you get by taking part in a project?

Finally, the last thing you would be wondering is what and from where do you learn to use software the right?

Well, online courses are the answer to your question.

Obviously learning software doesn’t happen in a day or two by sitting with a person and making him teach you, it happens step by step with growing time and experience.

So there are some mechanical courses like course on 3D Printing, gear train design, automobile prototyping and many more in store for you available online, wherein they offer fantastic opportunity by providing the software, mechanical kits and help you build the project and most importantly, they also provide you with a certificate which can add up to your portfolio.
