Basic Mechanical Engineering Interview Questions

Most frequently asked questions in any mechanical engineering interview

In this article, I am going to share some of the common but important mechanical engineering related questions while appearing for any mechanical job post. 

Apply to be a Chitika Publisher!Each and every interview starts with question from the chairman of interview. He normally asks candidate to say few words about family and education background. Normally he asks, or start the interview by asking, 'Tell me about yourself'. Candidate should reply to this question by giving just brief overview of name, education background, family and family background.

Mechanical Engineering interview normally contains following normal layout of questions.

  • What are you doing nowadays? 
    • They are looking for your mental attitude by asking you this question. 
    • If you are finding job, you should straight forward tell them the truth. They will ask for the reason why there is delay in getting job? You should tell the correct reason behind it. They actually find whether candidate is  right person with right attitude or not. Do not give meaningless answer. They will find the pit hole in it and mark them as negative points.
    •  If you are working somewhere else, tell the complete details, do not hide anything. They will further ask you about company and designation of yours and some question related to it measure your behavior in that company or professional life. 
  • What is your favorite subject in Mechanical engineering?
    • Just be prepared for this question. This is the moment where you can prove yourself as sound in knowledge by saying your favorite subject. Normally they are looking for the subject in which their company is based on. If you are applying for the design job and you tell them thermal science as favorite subject, there is no problem. They will just check whether you are speaking truth or not. Do not tell them your favorite subject is Machine Design. If they keep throwing question regarding Machine Design, you will be caught. Do not worry if you tell other than the subject of company. Be true to yourself. You will be trained once you will be recruited. 
  • What was your project topic during Mechanical engineering?
    • They will looking for leadership and overall quality in this question. If you did project in group work, they will find out your leadership quality by related question. 
      • What was your role? 
      • How much time it has taken to complete the project? 
      • What is the role of guide in the project? Thus they will measure you. 
  • How do you see yourself after 5 years from now?
    • They want leaning and growth as your aim in this question. Do not tell I want to be General Manager or higher post in short time. It is joke actually. Tell the systematic plan for pursuance of your goal.
  • What are the software you know?
All these question will contains sub-questions based on your answer to each question. Do not tell a lie. This will waste time of interview and at the end,you will have more negative points and less positive.

    I have found that the best way to get started in Mechanical Engineering Jobs in the oil and gas industry is to begin by having a look at an oil & gas specific job board and seeing which roles are available. In my opinion, it's important to use a job board as you maximize the number of jobs in one place, and avoid missing any great opportunities...saves you time endlessly scanning the internet for the best jobs! The oil & gas job board at the moment with the most jobs listed is Oil and Gas Best Jobs Senior Mechanical Engineer so it may be worth giving that a try as a starting point. Once you have a good idea of the type of jobs which are available for your skills, tailor your resume to emphasize the points which would be relevant. Then simply start sending your resume off for the jobs you like the look of (you just need to register/upload your CV once and you can apply for as many jobs as you like).

    I hope this helps!
