Hi, I am preparing for GATE 2018 for Mechanical Engineering. I aspire to do masters in mechanical engineering. I want to ask about the future scope of Masters in Mechanical Management? In general, what are the areas in which there is a scope of a better future in mechanical engineering after a masters degree?

Thanks Sir for the reply. So this means, for MEM, I need to look for studies abroad.

Hey Tarun!

Thanks for your question. I see that you have asked about the scope of Masters in Mechanical Management. Well this course is for those mechanical engineers who wish to combine a deeper knowledge of mechanical engineering with a specialised skill in areas of business administration. People with this degree often find themselves employed at a position which acts as an interface between engineering/ production departments and business related areas like sales, marketing etc. Some key job titles can be:

  • Application engineer
  • Automation engineer
  • Business analyst
  • Job cost engineer
  • Manager in Corporate Strategic Planning
  • Manufacturing Development Program Manager
  • Plant manager
  • Product manager etc.

Such courses are often referred to as MEM degrees, i.e. Masters in Engineering Management. Most of such programs are found outside India.
