    The field of mechanical engineering course is one of the fields that are never constant and therefore always into ups and downs. Constant development is what defines mechanical engineering. In the coming times, many upcoming trends are to be noticed in mechanical engineering by mechanical engineers. A few of the latest upcoming trends have been discussed below:

    • 3D printing- this feature by mechanical engineers requires the use of CAD software, which is also referred to as additive manufacturing. The 3D process involves, slicing the object into ultra-thin slices, and then transferring them into a printer for printing them into fine plastic layers, each layer bonded to the preceding layers. The introduction of this 3D printing has brought about some incredibly new inventions through the technological moves taken by the innovators.
    • Electric vehicles- one of the most important inventions that will be trended in the future will be electric vehicles. Ensuring to conserve the scarce resources of nature such as petroleum and gallons of diesel, mechanical engineers have come up with the idea of electric vehicles. This will ensure sustainable development which is what the world aims for today. Many years have been spent perfecting the performance, safety, and quality of electric vehicles.  Presently, these electric vehicles are all set to work the way engineers are making them work.
    • Internet of things or IoT- The internet of things or IoT is a system of interrelated computing machines with unique identifiers. The machines will gather the ability to transfer data over networks, negating the need for any human to computer or computer to computer reactions. Any machines or systems can be a part of the Internet of things if they are logged in with an IP address.
