Career Talk Information
What is Mechanical Engineering?
A Career in Mechanical Engineering is very interesting. 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. The internet is a great source of information on Mechanical Engineering, but it is second best to learning about the same from a real professional.
Vidhu Gairola invested 49 years in Mechanical Engineering. According to Vidhu Gairola, Mechanical Engineering is:
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.
Vidhu Gairola's Talk on Mechanical Engineering
|Starts with what is:|
|Next, it covers Education. It was a welcome change to see the Talk touch upon Education as theoretical knowledge needed to excel at Mechanical Engineering, and not merely as Qualifications needed to enter Mechanical Engineering. It discusses following headings for Education in Mechanical Engineering:|
|Then, the Talk focuses on the most important component that is Skills. 90% success in Mechanical Engineering depends on Skills. It is crucial to understand these. It discusses following headings for Skills in Mechanical Engineering:|
|8)||Willing to dirty your hands|
|There are great positives of Mechanical Engineering. This Talk explains these Positives of Mechanical Engineering:|
|14)||Opportunity to take initiative|
|15)||Application in day to day life|
|16)||Key to development of society|
|Challenges are the other side of Positives and Mechanical Engineering is no exception:|
|17)||Theory VS Practice|
|19)||Lack of Recognition|
|20)||Blindly following old practices|
|In the final section of the Talk, Vidhu Gairola talks about How a day goes in a Career in:|

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."
