Better Field - Mechanical or Production Engineering?


Mechanical Engineering vs Production Engineering

Production Engineering is, for the most part, a study program in Mechanical Engineering, with added emphasis on Manufacturing Engineering, Statistics and Industrial Management. All of these topics are also covered in the typical Mechanical Engineering program, albeit to a lesser extent.

There is no question about which is best both of them are best on it's own way.If you are interested in the field of production methods and it's technical terminologies then you should go for production engineering and if you have interest in learning the production method,thermal properties, fluid properties, mechanics, vibration properties of various engineering items or components also sometimes management of it then you will like mechanical engineering. But let me give you a free advice job market of these branches in India are not good in present scenario unless and until you are from an IIT or an good NIT.

Better Field - Mechanical or Production Engineering

Both are almost same branches except some subject. Both the branches have specialty in manufacturing engineering and machine design. But there is one subject or you can say one side known as thermal science which differentiate them. Thermal science is broad and very interesting branch which consist of several subjects like thermodynamics, heat transfer, refrigeration and air conditioning & power plant engineering.

Those subjects are heart of anything related to temperature and heat. By knowing these subjects one can understand why our skin becomes dry in winter and sweaty in summer. Why we put cotton clothes on forehead of seek person what is reason behind it.

As compared to mechanical branch production have some deep knowledge of manufacturing science but they are far away from the Thermal science which is biggest disadvantage of choosing production engineering.
