how is this course "mechanical and production engineering"?

i tried searching the website for details but all that i could find was that this course is available in colleges like sathyabama university, chennai and Delhi Technological University. i thought production engineering was a part of mechanical engineering.

can anyone tell me what is the scope of this subject? any experiences? is it a good choice?

any mechanical engineers or others who have an idea about this please let me know.

i details about this course as soon as possible. 😀

thanks,
CP
@ISHAN TOPRE • 26 Apr, 2011 Hello Niru,
I found this information. Should I make a joke? Sometimes we have to sound that we know nothing. So instead of asking Google, "Tell me what the scope of Production?" I asked, Oh God Google "I do not even know what is production." :razz:
So Google got happy and gave me the answers.

Simply i changed the question " What is Production?" LOL any ways jokes apart, I am bad at making them.

According to me Mechanical and production go hand in hand. Mechanical is mother while Production is daughter. In mechanical we have theories and in production, these theories are put to use. It is a bit confusing but go through this:

It's been said that winning a battle means getting there the fastest and having the most stuff. Production Engineering applies this principle to industry. If you've ever wondered to yourself what Production Engineering is, join us as we explore it in this article! The process of getting something from raw materials to a finished good is complicated and must be planned carefully. Production Engineering is the term used when we're talking about the intricate design and thought that goes into creating a product. For a production engineer, that process can be quite broad, incorporating everything from minerals and other raw materials to consumer products to large-scale durable goods.

What Is Production Engineering?

Production engineers are responsible for making manufacturing operate as smoothly as possible. This involves many different tasks, and all of the following would be considered examples of Production Engineering:

Assisting in the design of a product to make sure that it can be produced as quickly and cheaply as possible
Comparing different materials to find the right balance of quality and cost
Creating computer simulations to model different ways in which manufacturing could be made more efficient
Making sure that the factory is able to meet its demands and deadlines
Debugging problems in the manufacturing process and acting as a go-between for different departments to make sure those problems are fixed.

Where Does Production Engineering Take Place?

The Bureau of Labor Statistics, at U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, identifies Production Engineering as taking place in many different areas. In fact, Production Engineering is said to touch all aspects of industry. Consider the last time you took an airliner, for instance. The airplane itself, the electronics that control it, the physical structure of the airport, the equipment the air traffic controllers use and the jet fuel that goes into the plane are all examples of things that got to you by Production Engineering.

@ISHAN TOPRE • 26 Apr, 2011 This does not give the syllabus of Production which you can get by various universities. This article only gives idea about what is taught in Production.

One more thing, I want to ask why do you require this info? 😀

And yes any thing you want to ask me about sub branches of mechanical I am here my friend.

Another query please ask, always. 😁

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). The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. In order to accomplish this, a broad range of skills are needed. The mechanical engineer needs to acquire particular skills and knowledge. He/she needs to understand the forces and the thermal environment that a product, its parts, or its subsystems will encounter; to design them for functionality, aesthetics, and the ability to withstand the forces and the thermal environment they will be subjected to; and to determine the best way to manufacture them and ensure they will operate without failure. Perhaps the one skill that is the mechanical engineer’s exclusive domain is the ability to analyze and design objects and systems with motion.

Since these skills are required for virtually everything that is made, mechanical engineering is perhaps the broadest and most diverse of engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers play a central role in such industries as automotive (from the car chassis to its every subsystem—engine, transmission, sensors); aerospace (airplanes, aircraft engines, control systems for airplanes and spacecraft); biotechnology (implants, prosthetic devices, fluidic systems for pharmaceutical industries); computers and electronics (disk drives, printers, cooling systems, semiconductor tools); microelectromechanical systems, or MEMS (sensors, actuators, micropower generation); energy conversion (gas turbines, wind turbines, solar energy, fuel cells); environmental control (HVAC, air-conditioning, refrigeration, compressors); automation (robots, data and image acquisition, recognition, control); manufacturing (machining, machine tools, prototyping, microfabrication).

To put it simply, mechanical engineering deals with anything that moves, including the human body, a very complex machine. Mechanical engineers learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, instrumentation, design, and manufacturing to understand mechanical systems. Specialized mechanical engineering subjects include biomechanics, cartilage-tissue engineering, energy conversion, laser-assisted materials processing, combustion, MEMS, microfluidic devices, fracture mechanics, nanomechanics, mechanisms, micropower generation, tribology (friction and wear), and vibrations. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) currently lists 36 technical divisions, from advanced energy systems and aerospace engineering to solid-waste engineering and textile engineering.

The breadth of the mechanical engineering discipline allows students a variety of career options beyond some of the industries listed above. Regardless of the particular path they envision for themselves after they graduate, their education will have provided them with the creative thinking that allows them to design an exciting product or system, the analytical tools to achieve their design goals, the ability to overcome all constraints, and the teamwork needed to design, market, and produce a system. These valuable skills could also launch a career in medicine, law, consulting, management, banking, finance, and so on.

For those interested in applied scientific and mathematical aspects of the discipline, graduate study in mechanical engineering can lead to a career of research and teaching.

@CIVILPRINCESS • 26 Apr, 2011 it's for my cousin 😀

so what would you say about this branch? is it a good option? 😀
@ISHAN TOPRE • 26 Apr, 2011 Is he /she graduating?

Well it is a good option. but your cousin will need to do post graduation in any case which will be more beneficial if your cousin wants to do a job. It actually depends on personal interests.

If I can give you a suggestion try education councilor. He will give professional opinion. They conduct test and depending on your score and interests, suggest you a better option.

What say? 😀

AKD posted it. 😀
@CIVILPRINCESS • 26 Apr, 2011 he's finished his 12th. he is thinking of B.E.Mechanical and production engineering as an option. thats why asked if it is a good option. because i heard it is a new course.
@ISHAN TOPRE • 27 Apr, 2011 It is quite a old course. To tell you a fact in my college there was only production earlier but now they have made it to mechanical engineering.
That old sign of "Production Engineering" still hangs outside our department building. 😀
@Abhijeet Khandagale • 18 May, 2011 I recommend to go for pure mechanical. he'll be limited to production line if he does that course. Mechanical core gives ample fields to play with.

Sorry for the late reply.
