“Machine rules the world, and mechanical engineers rule the machine!”

Imagine you are on a road trip, and your car breaks down. Now you are stranded in the middle of nowhere. You look for a car repair shop, and they are nowhere to be seen. Feeling helpless, you uncover your car’s hood; the rest is history. So, to understand what’s under the hood, you can look at this Mechanical Engineering - Internal Combustion Engine course.

The Internal Combustion Engine (or IC engine in short) is a type of engine that converts energy stored in fuel into mechanical energy. The ICE is the most common engine used in cars, trucks, and other vehicles and is also used in many industrial applications, such as generators, pumps, and compressors. The ICE is a reliable and efficient power source and has been the mainstay of the automotive industry for over a century.

This course teaches you the working of various types of IC engines along with their efficient performance. In addition, you will understand all the components of an IC engine.

So, press the accelerator, ignite the fuel, initiate the ignition and power your future. Sign up now!

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
