Benefits of final yearproject
Your final year project (BE or ME) canhelp 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 projectvaluable even if it takes a little more time and effort.
Choose the rightindustry
You can choose oneof 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 oneof the following types:
  1. Experimental Projects:
      1. This type of projects need good lab-facilities and hi-tech instruments for measuring your experimental set-up accurately. 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.
      2. 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.
      3. This type is feasible for those who don’t have such constraints.
  2. Design Projects:
      1. 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.
      2. CFD Projects – Flow analysis, Thermal analysis, Aerodynamics improvement are the typical projects. This uses software like FLUENT, STAR-CCM+ are used for CFD analysis.
      3. Flexibility and accuracy are the major advantages in this type of projects.
      4. However it needs some additional training. To know more…
Job Opportunities
Interviewersgive more weightage for good projects.
CAE or CFDprojects in Aerospace and automobile systems have more jobopportunities in India, US, Europe and Japan.
At the same timeHVAC, Oil & Gas, Marine have good opportunities in Gulf.
