Industrial and Production Engineering
A typical under-graduate course on Industrial & Production engineering emphasises on manufacturing and improvement of productivity. A student also learns the trends of dynamics and control and hence develops a sound knowledge about overall industrial production and management. He/ She also learn to analyse the emerging technological trends of the industry.
Manufacturing industries, these days, are in constant look out for multiple ways of reducing cost of handling through innovative ways of packaging, storage and other efficient logistical processes. A good and updated course on industrial and production engineering makes a student smart enough to understand existing technological trends and adding new technology to the existing system so as to make it at par with the recent trends.
Most leading manufacturing houses look out for engineers who specialise in Industrial Production so as to meet reduce cost, increase efficiency and make their products marketable in the competitive era.
Core Subjects: -
The core subjects of Industrial and Production Engineering are:
Computer Aided Design
Electrical & Electronics Engineering
Theory of Machines
Heat and Mass Transfer
Measurement and Metrology
If you don't want to do job after graduation then one can opt for master of business administration (MBA) in Product engineering management and vice-e-versa. You can also apply for MTech by giving the entrance exam through the GATE and further you have the choice to do PhD in the subject.
There are lots of opportunities and scope after doing graduation in industrial production engineering. As Industrial production engineering is a part of mechanical engineering and there is s lot of demand of production engineers both in public and private sector for the smooth functioning of their instruments and to make industrial manufacturing as well.
