Physics is the mother of all sciences. The role of physics in engineering education is not static one. It must respond and evolve with the momentous changes in both engineering and physics which are occurring continually. The predominant reliance of early engineering upon art is giving way to a modern technology based squarely upon the physical sciences. Physics is a study of energy, matter, and their interactions. It plays an important role in the future progress of the humankind. It is important to study physics at school and engineering level for those who have the ambition to be at the front position of enhancing technologies and theories that explains our reality. It provides the students with problem solving, analytical, and quantitative abilities. All the activities in our daily life involve the application of physics.
Mathematics is one of the most important subjects which enhance the ability of analytical and rational thinking. It is common belief that mathematics is a dry and difficult subject on the contrary if it is presented in a systematic and illustrative manner it becomes much easier for even beginner to understand and appreciate it. All branches of engineering, technology and science require mathematics as a tool for the description of their contents. Therefore through knowledge of various topics in mathematics is essential to pursue courses in these fields.
Mechanical Engineering is an engineering discipline that involves application of principles of analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance. It is one of the oldest and most essential branches of engineering. Mechanical Engineering strives to disseminate technical knowledge to its undergraduate students to meet intellectual and career challenges for sustainable growth of humanity.
The world is changing; with the challenges facing us on a global level there is a new need for companies and organizations to integrate technical and business skills to solve these difficult problems. In the complex, competitive world of technology driven industry, skilled engineers who understand the essential principles of business and law have a tremendous competitive advantage. Therefore every engineering student must study economics and management subject at undergraduate level.
It is now accepted worldwide that Communication is an indispensable facet of life. Appropriate communication skills are a must for a successful professional as well as personal life. Whatever may be one’s field, competence in communication creates path for the victory. Thus, good communication skills are a prerequisite for every engineer and such a professional can be an asset to any organization.
