Practice makes perfect. Mechanical engineering students need practical problem solving experience to constantly improve their skills. Hence, in the US, it’s common for mechanical engineering students to complete one or more internships while studying, though this is not typically mandated by the university. To be eligible to study mechanical engineering in any country of your interest, you must have a minimum of 50% marks and should have Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as compulsory subjects in your class 12 exams. The fee for engineering education all over the world is slightly on the higher side when compared to other professional courses. Degrees in Mechanical Engineering are offered worldwide.
