What is Mechanical Engineering?

Mechanical engineering is perhaps the most diverse and versatile of the physics and mathematics. It encompasses key elements of aerospace materials and bioengineering. Mechanical Engineering touches different disciplines of engineering and plays an important role in the engineering discipline.

Technically, mechanical engineering is the application of the principles and problem-solving techniques of engineering from design to manufacturing to the marketplace for any object. The mechanical engineers analyse their work using the principles of motion, energy and force ensuring that designs function safely, efficiently and reliably all at a competitive cost.

Mechanical engineering is the combination of science, maths and computing. It is a study of machinery and how to manufacture and maintain it at all levels. It’s a limitless subject which plays a role in everything from vehicles to cities energy to artificial intelligence military to healthcare and everything in between.

Few lines about B.Tech/BE Mechanical Engineering (Additive Manufacturing)

The B.Tech/BE Mechanical Engineering (Additive Manufacturing) is an undergraduate course that is divided into 8-semesters. The course offers courses in additive manufacturing processes like 3D printing, rapid prototyping and specialised materials.

The course gives appropriate skills and knowledge regarding the digital process steps of the additive manufacturing design workflow, define additive manufacturing design considerations and apply additive manufacturing design principles to standard design features gained from this programme.

Eligibility for B.Tech/BE

The students who have passed PUC or 10+2 with a science background can join the B.Tech/BE Mechanical Engineering (Additive Manufacturing) course. The students interested in joining B.Tech/BE courses are required to qualify competitive exams like CET/COMED-K/JEE with high marks in order to get merit seats in various colleges.

Admission Procedures

The students with relevant qualifications can join B.Tech/BE courses by two modes. The first one is Merit based admission and the second one is Direct admission.

Let’s discuss in detail

Merit Admission

The students who are interested to join B.Tech/BE Mechanical Engineering (Additive Manufacturing) degree should mandatorily appear for CET/COMED-K/JEE or institutional-based entrance exams and undergo counselling to choose their desired colleges for merit seats. The engineering college allotts the merit seats to the students according to their rankings and marks obtained by them in their entrance exams and marks scored in PUC or 10+2. 

There are two types of counselling for the B.Tech/BE students

1. Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) Counselling

The students who are interested to join the government engineering colleges and other engineering colleges affiliated to the government should undergo the counselling procedures of Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA). 

The students who intend to join for the merit seats under government quota are required to complete the counselling procedures and join for the B.Tech/BE programmes in their chosen colleges. The Engineering colleges under the Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) are affiliated to the Visveswaraya Technological University (VTU).

2. COMED-K Counselling

The students who are interested to join the private autonomous engineering colleges and deemed universities that are affiliated to All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) are required to apply for the COMED-K counselling procedures. The students should qualify the COMED-K counselling procedures to get admission to their desired private autonomous engineering colleges or deemed universities for Engineering programmes. 

Direct Admission  

The students have another option of getting admission to B.Tech/BE Mechanical Engineering (Additive Manufacturing) course by direct admission process. Under this mode of admission, the students are given direct admission to their desired colleges under management quota. The direct admission students enjoy many special privileges like that they are not required to apply for any entrance exam for getting admissions. They have an option to choose their desired colleges and universities and book their seats in advance even before the starting of the academic year. The students who are interested in direct admissions are required to contact Galaxy Educational Services for more details.
