    Dear Fellows

    I am just going to start my PhD in Mechanical Engineering. Can you people suggest me, which area should I choose? That will be interesting and challenging...

    Any Suggestions PLEASE....

    I might suggest that you made a mistake starting a PhD without an interest in any particular research area.

    That isn't all you need for a PhD in engineering. You need to have a passion for your field. If you don't have any idea which research branch fascinates you, then you shouldn't be getting a PhD at this time.

    So the question you should be asking is which branch of research do you find most fascinating?

    Well we can't answer that for you. Only you know what you consider fascinating.
