Lecturer, Department of Mechanical Engineering
Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology:BUET.

Subject Demand

Demand for Mechanical Engineers are more in industries and factories. There is great demand for skilled mechanical engineers in different segments of the industry. Their expertise is required in traditional manufacturing industries such as automobiles, aviation, shipping, aerospace, power plants and machinery manufacturing. There is also great requirement for mechanical engineer consultants who have management skills along with technical proficiency. The primary role of such professionals is to manage both technology and people and firms that provide engineering consultancy. It has been found that Mechanical graduates can also apply for the posts that demand engineers primarily from EEE or IPE. 

The demand for Bangladeshi Mechanical Engineers are found to be high in foreign soil. Mechanical Engineers have been doing extremely well in this sector. Automobile industries both at Japan, China, European countries like Italy, Germany, UK and the aviation industries at USA require a lot of Mechanical Engineers every year. If you work hard and consider yourself talented, a job in these money making machines is right in your doorstep.

Interesting Fields

Mechanical Engineering is often nicked as "Mother of Engineering". Why wouldn't it be? See for yourself the dimension and extra space that you can enjoy being a Mechanical graduate. Robotics is perhaps the most interesting field in mechanical engineering. Students are now more interested in building automated robots. Very recently, students from BUET, MIST and BRAC University have shown success at NASA Lunabotics Mining Competition. To mention some other fields:

1. Applied Mechanics
2. Nuclear Engineering
