There are a ton of courses available for learning. Your aim should be not just to study a course for the sake of putting it in your resume but also to do as many projects as you can. This will help you build your portfolio. Such a portfolio will attract employers and academic institutions alike. Anyone can mention they know a list of skills, but only a few can prove it.
In my personal opinion, simulation or automation courses are the best bet as we are currently moving towards an era where computers are integrated with engineering systems. Areas such as maintenance engineering and shop floor engineers will be replaced by automation in the future. Employers are already preferring engineers who can code and simulate systems. However, to choose the best course to tailor your needs, you must pick one based on your favorite subject that you studied while doing your degree.
Let us assume that your favorite subject was thermodynamics. Then your best bet is to choose a course like CFD or HVAC systems. if you have a good mathematics base, choose to study some programming languages or numerical analysis courses. A popular choice is MATLAB/Python. Do not make the mistake of choosing the most popular course just to go with the herd. Stick to your strengths, choose a particular field, and master it.
Mechanical engineering can be split into many fields, but here my focus is on only three areas, which are widely believed to be the future scorers in Mechanical engineering:
In CAD, you can learn to draft and design systems in software like SolidWorks, NXCAD, etc. if you are artistic or creative and you like to design, this is the area for you
2) In CFD, you will mainly deal with simulations:
3) If you are someone good at mathematics, numerical analysis is a good pathway. You can learn to code problems in and . It is a delusion that programming languages have nothing to do with mechanical engineering when in fact, having a programmer’s skills can be a huge advantage for an engineer.
All the areas mentioned above are related to Computer-aided Mechanical engineering. These areas are great for you, especially if you plan to get into research and development. Apart from these, there are areas such as manufacturing and production. You can’t find any courses pertaining to those but it will be an advantage for you if you are familiar with programming languages. For instance, Python and MATLAB are used for optimizing systems in production.
If you are interested in learning a course that will build your portfolio and give you the understanding to work on technical projects,is the place for you. At Skill-Lync, we train our students in such a way that they can grow beyond the good grades that they carry and be relevant to the industry.
