After clearing the entrance exams, you will be called for councelling and given the choice of institute based on your ranking in the entrance examination. So, if you score well and are among the top rankers, you will get to choose any institute you want. As your ranking falls, the choice of institutes will keep on reducing. Job prospects: Mechanical engineers probably have the maximum number of employment opportunities. The most traditional careers in mechanical engineering are those working as design and manufacturing engineers for companies that produce a mechanical product, such as cars, planes or refrigerators. In the government sector some of the largest employers include the Indian Railways and the armed forces. In the public and private sector almost all industries require mechanical engineers. Maximum openings exist in the sectors of power generation, automobile. Machine tools etc. Today, mechanical engineering has merged and inter-faced with the worlds of electrical, electronics, computer engineering. As a mechanical engineer you will find work in may industries and your work will vary by industry and function. Some specialties include applied mechanics; computer-aided design and manufacturing; energy systems; pressure vessels and piping; and heating, refrigeration, and air conditioning systems. You can work in production operations, maintenance, or technical sales as administrators or managers. You can also work in the research and development team (R & D) of any industry. Here you will have to come up with optimal, efficient, accurate, cost-saving and safe designs of the product under consideration. If you are employed in the automobiles industry you will be involved in the safety testing of the vehicle being manufactured, designing safe, crash and crumple zones for cars. Happy engineering !!!
