Mechanical Engineering Final Year Project Ideas

Benefits of final year project

Your final year project (BE or ME) can help you in the following ways:

  1. You can increase your overall percentage by scoring 90 to 95% marks through a good project.
  2. An industry-oriented project can add extra weightage to your resume and help you get a good job in the core mechanical industry.
  3. A technically good project can give you an added advantage if you are planning for higher studies in US, UK, Germany etc.

Hence, make your final-year project valuable even if it takes a little more time and effort.

Choose the right industry

You can choose one of the following industries for your project:

Aerospace, Automobile, Marine, HVAC, Oil & Gas, Industrial, Turbo-machines, Machine-tools, Appliances etc.

Choose the right type

You can choose one of the following types:

  1. Experimental Projects:

                                                                           i.      This type of projects need good lab-facilities and hi-tech instrumentsfor measuring your experimental set-upaccurately. Only IITs and IISc have such facilities. Students from Tier II and private colleges try their best but mostly end-up in cooking-up the results or change the project at the last moment due to non-availability of the above facilities.

                                                                         ii.      Also it involves more time and cost for setting up the project for those students who are already tightly scheduled with final-exams or campus interviews.

                                                                        iii.      This type is feasible for those who don’t have such constraints.

  1. Design Projects:

                                                                           i.      CAE Projects – Stress analysis, dynamic analysis etc.of aero, auto or mechanical systems can be done through these projects. New design, Improving performance, optimization can be accomplished. FEM based software like ANSYS, NASTRAN, RADIOSS, HYPERMESH etc. can be used.

                                                                         ii.      CFD Projects – Flow analysis, Thermal analysis, Aerodynamics improvement are the typical projects. This uses software like FLUENT, STAR-CCM+ are used for CFD analysis.

                                                                        iii.      Flexibility and accuracy are the major advantages in this type of projects.

                                                                       iv.      However it needs some additional training. To know more…

Job Opportunities

Interviewers give more weightage for good projects.

CAE or CFD projects in Aerospace and automobile systems have more job opportunities in India, US, Europe and Japan.

At the same time HVAC, Oil & Gas, Marine have good opportunities in Gulf.
