Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, and materials science principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
The mechanical engineering field requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. In addition to these core principles, mechanical engineers use tools such as computer-aided design (CAD), and product life cycle 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. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery.
Diploma in Civil Engineering is a course of 6 Semesters at duration of 3 years. In first two semesters student will learn 6 subjects each including theory and practicals. In later course from 3rd to 6th, each semester includes 7 to 8 core subjects including practical.
In first year (1st and 2nd Semester) the students get thorough knowledge of construction materials, get basic knowledge of surveying, Science, Engineering Mathematics, English, Engineering Drawing, Applied Science and computer applications.
In second and third year 3rd Semester onwards they study the Engineering Mechanics, Strength of Materials, Advances in Construction technology, Plannning & designing of Buildings, Bridges, Dams, transportation, Irrigation systems, Testing of Soil & Materials, thorough knowldege in Hydraulics, environment, Water Resouce Management, Sanitary Management. And more over they study the design of Steel and Masonary structures, Town planning etc
Along with core subjects Professional Ethics & Industrial Management is included in curriculum to guide one how to behave and perform duties Ethically knowing all managerial skills in industry as well as society.
Without knowing actual industrial aspects and experience a Diploma program won't be complete. So 52 hours of In-plant training is provided. And one has to do his own Project work so as to bring out his talents and enhance their qualities.
SSLC / X pass is the minimum eligibility criteria for doing Diploma in Ceramic Technology. A full time Diploma in Ceramic engineering is a 6 Semester / 3 year course.
There is more scarcity of civil engineers every where today. Students find the major advantages of civil engineering in the government sectors, which has the more opportunities rather than the other fields. It finds the application in Municipalities, D C office, Rural and Public development board, Water supply board etc.
In accordance to the above given information, Civil engineering branch gives more importance to the interaction of many people with the chooser. So, the students get more knowledge about the communication with all field personnel.
Finally civil engineering is a branch which penetrates into a depth and it has a wide range of applications in all fields. All other branches depended on civil in all aspects.
Its scope is vast and plays a vital role in the development of society and environment. Due to this the placement opportunities is everywhere in the same stream or in the other too.
In Karnataka after completing Diploma there is 10% reservation for each course to get lateral entry to engineering. So after 3 years of diploma they can join directly to 2nd year (3rd Semester) of Engineering.
On completion of Diploma in Civil Engineering they have to apply for D-CET and get qualified for Lateral Entry in Engineering Colleges
