A sub-discipline of the mechanical branch, production engineering has much scope and potential in today’s industrial world. With a large number of industries coming up over the years and a bright prospect for future industrial growth, this is one field likely to be in demand for a long time to come. Production engineering has many things in common with industrial and manufacturing engineering. It is all about producing finished goods from raw materials. As a production engineer one has to devise those processes that will lead to efficient production with the least wastage. For developing those processes, one has to do careful planning and designing.
Eligibility and course duration

More about the course
From producing consumer based products to manufacturing automobiles, trains and aircrafts, production engineering has a role in every manufacturing industry. As part of their role, the production engineers make the manufacturing process as smooth as possible with the least interruptions in the production flow. They also ensure that the production floor meets its targets and deadlines each and every day. Through this course you gain expertise on concepts that help you design a product that can be produced most efficiently and cheaply. You gain knowledge on comparing different materials for their qualities and properties. You also learn computer simulation and modelling techniques that help you get the best design and the most efficient process. Some topics that you will study are engineering mechanics, manufacturing systems, production processes, industrial automation, inspection and quality control, etc.
The services of production engineers are utilised in most industries and manufacturing units. They have a role to play in both private and the public sector enterprises engaged in manufacturing. BHEL, BEL, SAIL, Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd and Bharat Earth Movers are a few among many such PSEs which employs professionals from this field in great numbers. Some of the industries where production engineers can make their career are automotive industry, aircraft manufacturing, food processing, railways, process based industries, consumer goods and the electronics industry. There are also wide opportunities for them to go for higher education in the field by doing MBA or M.E./M.Tech and then Ph.D. With experience in the field they can also go for teaching jobs.
