Mechanical Systems of Engineering / Basics of Mechanical Engineering / Elements of Mechanical Engineering is the subject designed for First year year Engineering students. This is to enable all engineering students to get acquainted with the subject and also to get clear ideas of the mechanical devices / appliances which come across in real life. The course consists of Theoretical as well as numerical part. Numericals are incorporated as per syllabus structure so it is very beneficial for beginners to get an idea about method / approach to solve the same. The data required for preparation of the subject takes more time as to search through various books and web sites. The course hence designed with the requirement of the students so that they can save lot of time and also gain confidence to get through the subject with good score.
The course is divided into six units as below:
Unit-I : Introduction to Energy sources and its Energy Conversions
Unit-II : Introduction to Thermal Engineering
Unit-III : Introduction to Vehicles / Automobile Engineering and their Specifications
