Generic Skill Development
Mechanical engineers design, build, and test mechanical devices such as tools, engines, and machines. Considered the broadest engineering discipline, mechanical engineers work in engineering services, research facilities, manufacturing industries etc.
A mechanical engineer should have particular hard skills, including a strong understanding of industry standards, and comfort working with computers, because much time is spent designing, simulating, and testing. In addition, mechanical engineers should have soft skills, such as strong analytical thinking and communication skills.
GRD Polytechnic, Dehradun has its full fledged very active Training and Placement Cell which facilitates best career prospects to the engineering. The prime objective of the Training and placement cell is to maintain strong industry Institute linkages and strive for the overall development & grooming of the students according to the Industry requirements by conducting qualitative interventions in sync with the identified industry manpower needs , Symposia, Seminars and conferences both at National and International level.
