Career Talk Information
What is Mechanical Engineering?
There are many nuances of a Career in Mechanical Engineering. One should first understand What a Career in Mechanical Engineering entails before investing time and effort to figure out How to start a Career in Mechanical Engineering. It is best to learn about Mechanical Engineering from a real professional, this is akin to getting it from the horse's mouth.
Vidhu Gairola is an experienced professional with 49 years in Mechanical Engineering. Vidhu Gairola outlines Mechanical Engineering as:
Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that derives its breadth from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices (e.g., microscale sensors and inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g., spacecraft and machine tools). It works on the principle of physics and material sciences. It is used for analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. It involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for design, production and operations of machines and tools.
How Vidhu Gairola got into Mechanical Engineering?
I have 40+ years of experience in rotating equipment and I have participated in selection of pumps for Alaskan Pipeline Project. I have also provided a working solution to the Central Coolant Filtration System at General Motors, which had been a major obstacle in keeping the system operating optimally.

Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, and materials science principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery.
"After doing my graduation and post graduation in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Roorkee, I joined Indian Railways in 1982 and worked as Chief Mechanical Engineer."
Rotating Equipment consists of pumps, compressors, turbines and accessories related to them. The study of maintenance, increasing efficiency, reliability and their working hours comes under Rotating Equipment Engineering. Few of the universities have started the professional degree for this course.
"I have 40+ years of experience in rotating equipment and I have participated in selection of pumps for Alaskan Pipeline Project. I have also provided a working solution to the Central Coolant Filtration System at General Motors, which had been a major obstacle in keeping the system operating optimally."
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.
"I have done Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from Pune. Post that I did Masters in Mechanical Engineering from UPTU, Lucknow. I am also pursuing his Ph D in Engineering from DIT University. I have been teaching in DIT University since 1998. I am Assistant professor at DIT University and teach Automobile Engineering, Product Designing & Theory of Machines."
Thermal fluids or Thermofluids is a branch of science and engineering which consists of two words "thermal", meaning heat, and "fluids", which refers to liquids, gases and vapors. Pressure, volume, and density all play an important role in thermal fluids.
"I have done B Tech in Mechanical Engineering from JSS, Noida. Post that, I worked at Prag as Industrial Engineer for some time, before deciding to go for Masters. I then did M Tech in Fluids Engineering from MNNIT, Allahabad. I have also done courses in CATIA & CFD. I have cleared GATE 4 times, from 2014-2017. I am Assistant professor at DIT University since 2017."
