Mini Project Ideas For Mechanical Engineering

Mini Project Ideas - Mechanical Engineering
Mini projects play a vital role in mechanical engineering degree. Mini projects help mechanical engineering students in understanding theoretical concepts by putting things into work in practical manner. Until unless one does not create proto types, one cannot understand the real potential of a theoretical concept. When I was studying in engineering college, I noticed many students having difficulty in finding a perfect mini project idea for mechanical engineering. Some good professors do help their students by issuing a list of possible project ideas under their supervision. But sometimes they ask students to come up with new ideas. Due to limited experience and knowledge, students cannot think of new innovative ideas for mini projects.

I have compiled a list of best mini project ideas for mechanical engineering students so that all students may benefit from this list. I will keep on adding more project ideas to this list over time. Updated lists will keep students linked with new technology. If you find difficulty in understanding any of these projects, you may ask for details in the comments section of this page. And if you have some better mini project ideas, do share with fellow students in comments section of this page.
Here is the complete list of ideas for mini projects:
  • Fruit picking robot
  • Grass cutting robot
  • Trimming robot for plants on large scale
  • Steam engine powered bicycle
  • Wind mill pump
  • RC Controlled bike with sensors to balance itself
  • RC controlled bicycle with censors to balance itself
  • Stair climbing handcart
  • Any project related to solar energy
  • Biogas plant
  • Chair for physiotherapy
  • Power generation using irrigation canals
  • Power generation using railway tracks
  • Sun powered water heater
  • Waste detector to segregate different types of waste (organic, combustible etc)
  • Hovercraft controlled by android
  • Robot for putting plant seeds in soil
  • Wheel chair controlled through mobile
  • Robot for peeling chicken skin
  • Multiple axis sliding table
  • Rotating shelves for refrigerator
  • Bottle vending machine
  • Electricity generation from speed braker
  • Rain water harvesting system
  • Mini Wind Mill to be installed on car for powering AC
I hope this list of mini project ideas will help mechanical engineering students in learning their subjects in practical manner. These projects can be easily carried out in university at low cost. Negligible cost for manufacturing is involved. If any student wants more help or ideas, keep posting your thoughts in comments so that I may help. If you will not post comments, I will not be able to find out your queries. I know some students try to skip mini course projects. I want to warn all those students that they are playing with their degree. If you will not do anything practical at your university, you will be forced to do a managerial job at lowest salaries after graduation. That’s a bitter reality.

Are Engineers Favourite Among Girls?

What do girls think about men who are engineers and what type of engineers are most favourite among girls? A survey was conducted by a team of aboutmech with members chosen from different countries. Each team member carried out a neutral survey in his/ her country to evaluate what females think about most of the engineers from different engineering branches. An overview of different questions asked in survey is given below: Question: Which male engineers do you find more attractive as a husband? Almost 50% women voted for mechanical engineers to be the most attractive husbands among other engineers. So mechanical engineers are most favourite among girls as a husband. They find them more trustworthy, intelligent, and creative. A married women from California said, “If your husband is a mechanical engineer, he will help you in everyday tasks. Because mechanical engineers are good team players and they have creative ideas about everything.” Which male engineers do you find more

Best CV Format for Mechanical Engineers

Fifty percent engineers fail to grab a dream job because of basic faults in their CVs/ Resume. This article tells you about best CV format for mechanical engineers and how you are supposed to design your CV when applying for jobs. You CV is your first impression on future employer. He/ she does not know you. Your CV is the only representation of your personality. He/ she may select or reject you after first glance on your resume.  I have experienced shortlisting and interviewing candidates for different jobs. I was astonished to learn that most of the candidates simply copy paste each others CVs without any changes at all. These types of CVs are rejected immediately. I am not trying to tell you that you should avoid copying, rather i ma telling you to refrain from giving your CV to your friends. An ideal CV consists of following portions: Name/ Address of the applicant Objective Education Record Employment History Professional Skills Awards & Achievements Co-Cu

Engineering Mechanics - Introduction

The Engineering Mechanics is that branch of Engineering-science which deals with the principles of mechanics along with their applications to engineering problems. It is sub-divided into the following two main groups: (a) Statics, and (b) Dynamics The Statics is that branch of Engineering Mechanics which deals with the forces and their effects, while acting upon the bodies at rest. The Dynamics is that branch of Engineering Mechanics which deals with the forces and their effects, while acting upon the bodies in motion. It is further sub-divided into the following two branches: (i) Kinetics, and (ii) Kinematics The Kinetics is that branch of Dynamics, which deals with the bodies in motion due to the application of forces. The Kinematics is that branch of Dynamics which deals with the bodies in motion without taking into account the forces which are responsible for the motion.
