Artisan courses in mechanical Engineering

Artisan courses in Mechanical engineering are disciplines 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.

The engineering field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided design, and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, and others.

Mechanical engineers use advanced mathematics and technology to design and implement the systems that make machines and new products function. Mechanical engineers are employed throughout several fields and industries. Those who have completed a graduate certificate program can find careers in the following areas:

  • Product design and development
  • Research and development
  • Power plant management
  • Large systems management
  • Alternative energy consulting
  • Electrical power management
  • Manufacturing
  • Product marketing
