Mechanical design engineers take charge of a product from its inception to installation and testing. All of this requires a certain level of creativity. However, if you are wondering how to become a good mechanical design engineer, creativity alone won’t suffice. The end product needs to meet specific functional requirements while also being cost-effective and environment-friendly. Hence, you need to develop certain other skills to become an effective design engineer. Let's look at what they are. 

 

How to Become a Master in Design Engineering?

To prepare yourself for the demands of this profession, you need to learn the following essentials of how to be a design engineer.

 

How to become a master in design engineering

 

 

1. Sharpen Basic Subject Knowledge

One of the most important points to becoming a successful mechanical design engineer in India is gaining technical knowledge. This includes having basic know-how of the following —

  • Engineering Calculations
  • Engineering Design, Drawing and Sketching
  • Design Manufacturing
  • CAD Design
  • Plastic and Sheet Metal Design
  • Product Knowledge and Design
  • Statics, Kinematics and Dynamics
  • Material Selection
  • Thermal and Structural Calculations
  • Tolerance Analysis
  • Product Testing
  • Problem Solving

 

2. Gain Proficiency in Software Engineering Design Programs

Learn at least one of the following popular and important software tools:

 

3. Hone Your Skills

In addition to having sound subject knowledge of design and engineering principles, you will be better able to execute the duties and responsibilities of a mechanical design engineer with  —

 

  • A mathematical and mechanical mind
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent organisational and time management skills
  • Attention to detail
  • Critical analysis and mindset towards product design
  • Updated information about the latest technological advancements in engineering design trends, best practices, etc.

 

4. Get Work Experience

If you want to become a master in design engineering, applying for a few internships will polish your practical subject knowledge. You will gain hands-on experience in some of the responsibilities of a mechanical design engineer, such as —

  • Researching the engineering and design methods for the mechanical systems
  • Executing designs with CAM, CAD or 3D CAD programs
  • Documenting design iterations, tests and processes
  • Maintaining project budget, resources and timelines
  • Liaising with engineers, designers, clients, manufacturers, etc.

 

Furthermore, you may also get to work under a senior mechanical design engineer as an intern. Besides, having work experience on your resume is always an advantage as it puts you a notch higher above the rest.

 

5. Research Career Opportunities and Salaries

The number of available job opportunities is increasing in the field. A successful mechanical design engineer can work in several roles —

  • Design Engineer (OEM/Tier 1)
  • Product Design Engineer
  • Design and Release Engineer (D&R)
  • Plastic Design Engineer
  • Wiring Harness Engineer/ Designer
  • Sheet Metal/ BIW Design Engineer
  • Seating Design Engineer

 

Moreover, if you are wondering how much a design engineer earns, based on data from Glassdoor, the national average salary for a mechanical design engineer is ₹4,68,000 per year in India. However, the salary is dependent on the skills of the professional and experience in the field.
