Mechanical Engineering Projects Ideas for College Students [2020]

Written by Mohammed SHAFI

Mechanical Engineering Projects play a vital role in the life of every mechanical engineering student. A Mechanical Engineering Student should have to strive very hard from the beginning itself so that he can catch the sweet fruits in the future. In this article, we will come across individual projects along with the list of Mechanical Engineering Projects Ideas.

The curriculum of Mechanical Engineering:

Coming to the curriculum, Mechanical Engineering Projects plays again a key role i.e. in order to complete your degree you should has to complete a project first. Without completing a project, you cannot go outside of the college with empty hands.

So, everyone has to sacrifice his journey in order to complete their final year project. One more thing is that the students cannot able to pick the right project for their academic year and can suffer the whole year. Some students can easily pick the topics and have the ability to complete the project on their own.

Mechanical Engineering Projects IDEAS

Basic Idea on How to Pick a Project:

Whenever you are doing any project you should have a basic idea of what the project is about and how well we can sustain it when we are moving ahead.

If you might know this simple formula, then you can do your project very easily. In the same way, If you don't have any idea of what the project is about or If you are picking a project because someone else is being picked, then you might be in trouble.

So, please look at all the facts while selecting a project. Think...which mechanical software you know or think about what else you can do? If you are not getting any idea, then this article is for you.

Individual Mechanical Engineering Projects:

The individual projects are presented below along with its Abstract, Introduction, Working principle, etc. so that you can understand the topic much effectively.

Automatic Speed Control In 4-wheeler by Cruise Control:

Every day the media brings us the horrible news about road accidents. The concept of assisting the driver in longitudinal vehicle control or driving from one place to another without taking any rest makes an impact on everyone’s life.

So, avoiding collisions has been a major focal point of research in many automobile companies and research organizations. Therefore in this article, I am going to explain the Automatic Speed Control In 4-wheeler by Cruise Control in a detailed way.

Abstract of Cruise Control:

Modern cruise control (also known as a speed stat) was invented by mechanical engineer Ralph Teetor in 1945. The idea of driver assistance was started with the ‘cruise control devices’ first appeared in the 1970s in the USA. When switched the cruise control ON, the device takes up the task by accelerating to maintain a constant speed.

Generally, the usage of cruise control can be adopted in highways where separate tracks will be there and you can move with your desired speed. But it could not consider the other vehicles on the road.

When the driver drives the vehicle on the road, he should have to accelerate or decelerate whenever required. but at Speed Limit Zones, the vehicle has to move without varying in speed and this can be done using Cruise Control.

Cruise Control is useful for long drives across highways and sparsely populated roads by reducing fatigue to the driver. This usually results in better fuel efficiency.

Introduction of Cruise Control:

Cruise control is a system that automatically controls the speed of an automobile.
The system takes over the throttle of the car to maintain a steady speed as set by the driver.
This system thereby improves driver comfort in steady traffic conditions also. In congested traffic conditions, where speeds may vary widely these systems are no longer effective.

Theory of Operation of Cruise Control:

The driver must bring the vehicle up to speed manually and uses a button to set the cruise control to the current speed.
The cruise control takes its speed signal from a rotating driveshaft, cable of the speedometer, wheel speed sensor from the engine's Rpm, or from internal speed pulses produced electronically by the vehicle.
Most systems do not allow the use of the cruise control below a certain speed (normally around 25 mph).

Cars Installed with Cruise Control:

Kia Sportage 1.7 CRDi 2 5dr diesel estate
Skoda Yeti 2.0 TDI CR SE Plus 4x4 5dr diesel estate
Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSI 160 GT 5dr Hatchback
Nissan Qashqai 1.6 dCi Tekna 5dr [Start Stop] diesel hatchback,e.t.c.

This is the detailed explanation of Cruise Control along with various parameters. Lets enter into another topic.

Computer Controlled Drilling Machine:

Current development in the industry has been towards computer-controlled manufacturing to increase the quality and quantity of products. Manual manufacturing of such items as the circuit board will have a big faulty case and uneven quality.

Then I have developed an automatic print circuit board drilling machine, which is controlled by computer.


The main aim of a computer-controlled drilling machine is to drill holes on printed circuit boards (PCB) in a specified area.

The program is written in assembly language and a step by step approach is implemented to control four motors independently.

It generally consists of a transformer, PC, MAX232, diodes, microcontroller, relay, stepper motors, AC motor, drilling machine, limit switches, transistors, etc. Co-ordinates are given through the keyboard of PC by the set of rules and regulations.

The information sent from PC to Microcontroller is passed via MAX232 which converts TIA/EIA-232-F inputs to 5V TTL/CMOS levels.

By this microcontroller commands the stepper motors and AC motor to be in-home position before the work is done.

The entire working depends upon the driving of stepper motors in both the directions (clockwise or anti-clockwise).

The system is programmed to produce the pulses in a sequence at four different outputs (9 5 6 A).

These sequentially programmed outputs energize the motor winding one after the other in a sequence.

The information from the microcontroller is passed to the drilling machine via a relay that converts 5V supply to 12V to rotate the drill. As per the data fed to the machine, it can drill as many holes as in a specific area.

After completing the task, the computer displays on its monitor that the job is completed. To avoid friction, the mechanical transmission part of each axis is designed with sliding channels.

Aim of the Project:

The main aim of the project lies in interfacing or in simple words, is to make a mechanical system work, making use of a personal computer of basic configuration.

This project is carried on keeping in mind, the needs of a small scale industry, which need small-sized components in a few numbers, which by other processes would cost them more.

This project makes use of a printed circuit board that interfaces a drilling machine with a personal computer. This system is mainly aimed at small scale production of printed circuit boards in small scale industries.

The system has an advantage of simplicity in operation, moreover, the cost of production comes down for a small scale sector.

Though the system involves many small electronic parts it is easy to study the working, and in operation, as we use the simple user-friendly language in programming the software.


The goal here is to design and build a very low-cost, very simple, desktop drilling machine, which is used for drilling the PCB’s (printed circuit boards).
Drilling the PCB’s manually consumes a lot of time and due to errors by drilling at wrong points, causes wasting many PCB’s.
All these problems can be avoided by implementing the Computer control concept, thereby this project work is taken up and a prototype module is constructed for the live demonstration.
Since it is a prototype module, the size of the work or drilling size of the PCB is minimized. Due to the restriction, the machine cannot drill PCB of more than 12 X 20cm.
The following is a brief description of mechanical work.


The block diagram of a computer-controlled drilling machine is shown below which consists of the following parts.They are Microcontroller,stepper motors,AC motor,limit switches,relay,PC,MAX232 etc.


A set of encoded information, which provides coordinate values and other instructions to indicate how the machine tool is moving in relation to a workpiece in order to achieve a specific desired machining form can be called as a function of a program.

The program should be prepared such that, it should contain all the information for the machining of a component which is input to the computer-controlled drilling machine.

Depending upon the input from the computer, the system provides signals at the correct time and in the correct sequence to the various drive units of the machine.
The machine tool receives information from the computer and does the operation on the machine.

The program is prepared by listing the coordinate values of the entire tool paths as suited to a machine.

In the case of the drilling machine, the coordinate values to be prepared for 3D for driving three motors independently.

Two motors are used for moving the platform in X and Y directions and the third motor is used to move the drill in the Z direction.

Development of CNC Program for End Shields by Unigraphics Software:

The end shield is a part of the transmission system which is used to cover the motors in most of the trains. As motors play a vital role in the transmission of power, this end shield is used to act as a cover on it so that no unevenness takes place in the surroundings.

In this article, I am going to explain about the Development of CNC Program for End Shield by Unigraphics Software in a detailed way.

Abstract of End Shield:

CAD/CAM system has a natural break at the point where it produces or delivers a Generic form of Numerical Control output called CL-file (Cutter Location File).

This generic intermediate output represents the path that the machine cutter will take while machining the part. It does not reflect and is not optimized for the specific CNC Control which will actually use to cut the part.

NX-CAM is the latest CAM software, which has important features like 2D, 3D, Surface modeling, Manufacturing, etc.

The component can be designed using NX_CAD software. Then the sequence of programs such as modeling the part or component, generating the tool path, selection of tools according to the sequence of operations, and sizes take place with respect to the program given or allowed.

At last, the generated NC part program is verified and sent to the required CNC machine to manufacture the component.

This project of End shield deals with the development of the NC program using NX-CAM software.

This is a detailed explanation of the End shield project which is categorized under Mechanical Engineering Projects Ideas.

Effects Of Minimum Quantity Lubrication On Turning Aisi9310 using Vegetable oil Cutting Fluid:

In many applications, dry machining is not a practical solution due to significant reductions in tool life and productivity. In comparison to entirely dry machining, MQL(Minimum Quantity Lubrication) can reduce machining temperatures considerably and increase tool life.

In this article, I am going to publish about the Effects Of Minimum Quantity Lubrication On Turning Aisi9310 using Vegetable oil Cutting Fluid in a detailed manner.

Introduction to Effects Of Minimum Quantity Lubrication:

In many applications, dry machining is not a practical solution due to significant reductions in tool life and productivity.
In comparison to entirely dry machining, MQL can reduce machining temperatures considerably and increase tool life.

Experimental Conditions:

The experimental investigations were conducted with a view to exploring the role of MQL on the machinability characteristics of the work material mainly in terms of cutting temperature, chip formation, tool wear, and surface roughness.
The depth of cut was kept fixed to only 1.0mm, which would adequately serve the present purpose.

Working Principle of MQL:

  • Machine tool Lathe Machine, 15 hp
  • Work specimens:
  • Material AISI 9310 steel
  • (C0.12%, Mn0.55%, P0.025%, Si0.25%, Ni3.4%, Cr1.3%, Mo0.14%)
  • Size ϕ 100×710 mm
  • Cutting fluid MQL condition—food grade vegetable oil
  • Process parameters:
  • Cutting velocity, Vc 223, 246, 348 and 483m/min
  • Feed rate, S0 0.10, 0.13, 0.16 and 0.18mm/rev
  • Depth of cut, t 1.0mm

This is the explanation of Minimum Quantity Lubrication which is categorized under Mechanical Engineering Projects Ideas.

Modeling and Manufacturing of Input Shaft using Computer-Aided Manufacturing:

In modern CNC systems, from the beginning to the ending, the component design is highly automated by means of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) programs.

In this article, I am going to publish the project of Modelling and Manufacturing of Input Shaft using Computer-Aided Manufacturing in NX CAD Software in a detailed manner.

Manufacturing of Input Shaft-Explanation of Input Shaft:

Since any particular component might require the use of a number of different tools like drills, saws, etc. modern machines often combine multiple tools into a single "cell".
In other installations, a number of different machines are used with an external controller and human or robotic operators that move the component from machine to machine.

The programs produce a computer file that is interpreted to extract the commands needed to operate a particular machine by a post-processor and then loaded into the CNC machines for production.

In either case, the series of steps needed to produce any part is highly automated and produces a part that closely matches the original CAD design.

AIM of the Project:

This project deals with generating NC program using CAM software in NX CAM for input shaft to manufacture on a modern CNC machine.

Using the NX-CAD software 3D model of the input shaft is created and the program is generated using NX-CAM software. Power enters the transmission through the input shaft.

The input shaft is connected to the engine via the clutch, such that when the clutch is engaged, power goes straight from the engine to the input shaft of the transmission and the crankshaft and input shaft rotate at the same speed.

Optimization of Manufacturing Process Plan of GIMBAL for Targeted Missiles:

Process planning is concerned with determining the sequence of individual manufacturing operations needed to produce a given part or product.

In this article, I am going to publish about the project of optimization of the manufacturing process plan of gimbal for targeted missiles in a detailed manner with the help of Abstract, Explanation, and Aim of the project.

Process planning translates design information into the process steps and instructions to efficiently and effectively manufacture products.

The resulting operation sequence is documented on a form typically referred to as a process sheet/method sheet containing a listing of the production operations and associated machine tools for a work part or assembly.

Process planning in manufacturing also refers to the planning of the use of blanks, spare parts, packaging material, user instructions (manuals), etc.

Explanation Of GIMBAL For Target Missiles:

The sensor platform consists of an outer (azimuth) and inner (elevation) gimbals. The two gimbals actuator systems are assembled to sensor plate for target missiles.

The purpose of the gimbaled stabilization system is to stabilize the sensor’s line of sight towards a target by isolating the sensor from the disturbance induced by the operating environment.

Creating holes with high accuracy is a tough task on a lathe mill machine. To overcome this problem number of operations and repeated drilling operations should be reduced.

Repeated drilling operations reduce the positioning of holes and dimensional accuracy of holes.

To reduce the number of operations specified tools must be designed according to the model of gimbal outer.

AIM Of GIMBAL For Target Missiles:

The main aim of this project is to create a 3D model using Unigraphics software.
Generating NC program of gimbal using NX-CAM software which is exclusively CAM software used to generate part program by feeding the geometry of the component and defining the proper tool path and thus transferring the generated part program to the required CNC machine with the help of DNC lines.

The operator thus executes the program with suitable requirements. The project deals with optimizing process plans by specifying appropriate tools, developing tools design if demanded.

This is a detailed explanation of the above project which is categorized under Mechanical Engineering Projects Ideas.

This is a detailed explanation of the above project which is categorized under Mechanical Engineering Projects.

Material Selection for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle:

An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is commonly known as a drone and also referred by several other names is an aircraft without a human pilot.

The flight of UAVs may be controlled either autonomously by onboard computers or by the remote control of a pilot on the ground or in another vehicle.

This post mainly focuses on the Material Selection for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drone) and is as follows.

Explanation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles:

ICAO classified unmanned aircraft into two types under Circular 328 AN/190:

Autonomous aircraft – currently considered unsuitable for regulation due to legal and liability issues
Remotely piloted aircraft – subject to civil regulation under ICAO and under the relevant national aviation authority.
Historically, UAVs were simple remotely piloted aircraft, but autonomous control is increasingly being employed.

Applications of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles:

Unmanned aerial vehicles have mostly found in military and special operations applications, but also are increasingly finding uses in civil applications such as policing, surveillance, and firefighting Non-military security work such as inspection of power or pipelines.

UAVs are often preferred for missions that are too "dull, dirty, or dangerous" for manned aircraft.

This is a detailed explanation of the above project which is categorized under Mechanical Engineering Projects.

Journal bearings consist of a shaft or journal which rotates freely in a supporting metal sleeve. There are no rolling elements in these journal bearings.

The design and construction of Journal bearings may be relatively simple, but the theory and operation of these bearings can be complex.

In this article, I am going to publish about the generation of NC Program of Journal Bearing using NX CAM software in a detailed manner.


Manufacturing technology provides tools that enable the production of all manufactured goods and services in an effective way.

These master tools of industry magnify the effort in making essential products from the raw material to the finished goods with high dedication and accuracy so that they can compete with the market needs.

As discussed earlier, A journal bearing is the simplest type of bearing, comprising just a bearing surface and no rolling elements. Journal bearings, in general, are the least expensive type of bearings.

The Journal bearings are compact and lightweight and they have a high load-carrying capacity.

This project deals with generating NC program using CAM software for Journal bearing to manufacture on a modern CNC machine.

Using the NX-CAD software 3D model of Journal bearing is created and the program is generated using NX-CAM software.

The generated program is fed into the CNC or DNC machines to carry out the operation in a successful way.
