    What is the scope and cost of doing a course in mechanical engineering?

    Sir,
    I have secured 60% marks in 12th standard. I have pursued Biology as one of the subjects. During my SSLC i had 94% marks. I would now like to join a course in mechanical engineering. Can you please give me the information about the job opportunities available in mechanical engineering? Also the cost involved in doing the course. Also please let me know whether i should pursue any other field as a career option. I shall be waiting for your reply.

    B.E is a four years course which is divided into eight semesters. The eligibility criteria as to the entry into a B.E. program are a 10+2 years of schooling or Diploma. Candidates have to pass the "Common Entrance Test" of the concerned state in which the desired engineering institute is located. Autonomous universities in India award BTech instead of B.E. Cost of the course will vary drastically depending on the university or colleges of your choice.
    Mechanical engineers job profile is mostly to design tools and equipment for engineering and civil purposes. Most of the time these engineers work as a team to develop new and improved machines. As to pursue Mechanical engineering a candidate must have excellent aptitude in science and mathematics. Also he/she should be interested to explore and alter the machine parts. Mechanical engineers can start their career as assistants or senior engineers. This will ensure them with hands-on experience in the various projects. As experience is gained they can move on and become supervisors or managers. The career path will be decided on the performance of the individual and his caliber.

    In order to pursue a course in mechanical engineering it is a must to have pursued PCM i.e. physics, chemistry and mathematics as subjects in 12th standard. This is a must. No college will take candidates who have not pursued these subjects. You can also pursue optional additional subjects like biology during 12th standard. No issues in that. There are various entrance exam conducted by various universities. You need to decide which college you would like to go to. Appear for the entrance exam for that college. The cost for admission varies from college to college. Government affiliated colleges will be cheaper.
    There are many opportunities like automobile industry, shipping etc available for the candidates. Choose the career based on what your strengths and caliber. In case you have not chosen subjects physics, chemistry and mathematics in 12th you can go for courses like BSc in Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics etc.

    You have not mentioned about mathematics. Did you had mathematics in 10+2 ? For BE course the eligiblity is PCM in 10+2.
    Mechanical engineering is a core branch of engineering and always has a lot of job opportunities. A mechanical engineer is never out of a good job.
    The cost depends upon the reputation of the college and the fees decided by the technical university of the concerned state. It can be anywhere like 50,000-60,000/- tution fees only per year. So the total cost of your BE can be like 3 lac if you are pursuing it in your hometown only. If you are going to some other city cost will increase.

    There are several other options like Bsc and BCA.

    regarding you scope you can apply for the companies such as

    BHEL
    DRDO
    ISRO
    BSNL JTO
    TNSCST

    you can proceed with Mechanical Engineering itself because the designing and the infrastructural development are in boom for next couple of decades , you will get reasonable salary compare to other branches of Engineering.

    all the best
