Dear Friend,
I have mentioned the branches which comes under the Mechanical Engineering below:-

Structural analysis
Mechatronics and robotics
Thermodynamics and thermo-science
Design and drafting
Computational fluid dynamics
Finite element analysis
Friction stir welding (FSW)
Micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS)

Beside this day by day due to development in an particular field and to study the particular field in depth there are lots of more branches coming up.

Well My Dear Friend
I Thought You are asking of Branches of Mechanical Engineering in M Tech/ B Tech course.

Mechanical engineering is a very vast field and encompasses various aspects and subfields including but not limited to power generation, manufacturing, transportation and so forth.
Following details about this exciting and vibrant field of engineering.
Power Plant Engineering

Every process requires power and energy and this is generated in power plants which could be different in their modes of production such as thermal, nuclear, hydro etc. This branch of mechanical engineering mainly utilizes the principles of thermodynamics and uses equipment like alternators, boilers etc.

Marine Engineering
This branch of mechanical engineering relates to the operation and maintenance of propulsion and other machines on board ships. The machinery on a ship ranges from main propulsion plant, auxiliary generators, boilers, purifiers, pumps and so forth.

Aerospace Engineering
Like the previous branch which deals with floating vessels, this branch deals with flying machines. In fact this has been further subdivided into two main parts aeronautical and astronautical engineering which deal with aeroplanes and spacecrafts respectively.

Automotive Engineering
This specialized branch of mechanical engineering deals with vehicles that ply on roads rather than sea or air. Again it could involved several sub-parameters which in turn require specialized skills of their own such as safety engineer, design engineer and so on, who take care of different aspects of automotive engineering during its design, manufacturing or maintenance.

HVAC Engineering
Climate and weather are natural phenomenon, but we can still control the elements at least within a finite space and that is all what HVAC engineering is all about. It stands for Heating, Ventilation & Air-Conditioning engineering and includes principles of thermodynamics, fluid transfer etc.

Computer Aided Engineering
Known more popularly as CAE and used in combination with CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing), it is mainly refers to the use of computers and relevant software for carrying out design, analysis, simulation of various machines and procedures. It is used in various disciplines such as automobile design, naval architecture etc. to name a few.

Mechatronics is a recent addition to the mechanical engineering branch and refers to a combination of mechanical, computer and electronics engineering. Hence it can said to be a hybrid branch which cover several fields at the same time.

Thank You!

Sorry , but i am not able to get you.

Engineering have branches and Mechanical Engineering is one of the branch of Engineering.

Mechanical is is not further divided and doesn't have any branch.

Please Rewrite your question or provide us some more details so that we could help you.

All The Best

  1. Mechanical engineering :comprises the design, analysis and usage of heat and mechanical power for the operation of machines and mechanical systems.
  2. Aerospace Engineering: Also known as Aeronautical engineering, concerns the design, construction, and science of both air and space vehicles, primarily on the systems level. Further concerned with the science of force and physics that are particular only to performance in Earth's atmosphere and the expanse of space.
  3. Acoustical engineering: Concerns the manipulation and control of vibration, especially vibration isolation and the reduction of unwanted sounds
  4. Manufacturing engineering :Concerns dealing with different manufacturing practices and the research and development of systems, processes, machines, tools and equipment.
  5. Thermal engineering :Concerns heating or cooling of processes, equipment, or enclosed environments
  6. Vehicle engineering :The design, manufacture and operation of the systems and equipment that propel and control vehicles.

There are generally three main branches of mechanical engineering:
machine design
thermal engineering
and there are lot of branches under these three.
