The Doctoral of Philosophy (Ph.D) . in Mechanical Engineering is a doctorate level degree that is five to eight years long with having Masters Degree in Engineering/Technology as eligibility. The course is focused entirely on Mechanical Engineering and is a research based course that deepens further into this specific field of study. Professionals in this field are often exposed to work with various persons through the course of their career and thus being adaptable to different work environments and being able to communicate effectively with different persons is also of paramount importance.

The Doctor of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering prepares students for careers in research and academia.
The course covers topics in Math and Science that require students to have background knowledge in mechanics, thermodynamics, and scientific computing. The course teaches and allows candidates to learn great mechanical engineering skills, as well as technical drawing and computing skills necessary in the designing of machines and equipment.

Mechanical Engineering is not only a technical subject, but is also an analytical area of study and any good course equips its students with not only with the technical ability necessary to excel in this course but also with the ability to apply abstract concepts in real world usage. The field requires a great degree of innovation and out of the box thinking and is concerned with the adopting of new approaches to already existing problems. Professionals in this field are often required to work with various other persons through the course of their career and thus being adaptable to different work environments and being able to communicate effectively with different persons is also of paramount importance.

Mechanical Engineering although a very technical field of study is one that has great scope for research and thus is an interesting subject to be delved further into. Understanding and researching further into the field is essential for greater innovation to occur in this area. One of the benefits of studying Mechanical Engineering is that it is considered an all purpose engineering degree and leaves the scope open for pursuing a career in various fields of engineering.
