Use the Online Mechanical Aptitude Test for Hiring Mechanical Engineers

Assess the Technical Skills, Verbal Ability, Quantitative Ability, Attention to Detail and Reasoning Ability of Mechanical Engineers!

Why is the Mechanical Engineering Test important?

Mechanical engineers liaise with clients to plan, manage, design and supervise the construction of projects. Their role is to do research and development in sectors such as automobiles and heavy machinery. They work in a number of different settings and run projects as a project manager.
Such work requires one to be good at analyzing data and numerical calculations, providing systematic solutions to a given problem, and communicating with stakeholders effectively in the English language,  the Mechanical Engineering Test assesses candidates on these key skills. 

What does the Mechanical Aptitude Test measure?

Mettl Aptitude and Technical Test for Mechanical Engineers is a comprehensive functional and aptitude test specially designed to assess skills of a candidate to perform duties as per the required industry standards. This test measures the technical knowledge of a candidate on the following aspects through a set of specific role-based application questions.

  • Designing and implementing cost-effective equipment modifications to help improve safety and reliability

  • Developing a project specification with colleagues, often including those from other engineering disciplines

  • Developing, testing and evaluating theoretical designs

  • Discussing and solving complex problems with manufacturing departments, sub-contractors, suppliers and customers

This test aims to assess the candidates on the technical knowledge related to basic concepts in Mechanical Engineering involving application of the principles of Physics (thermodynamics, applied mechanics, CAD, fluid mechanics, machine design, etc.) and material science (strength of materials, manufacturing processes, etc.) 

It also measures the ability to communicate effectively in English language clearly and precisely, ability to analyze information in a structured and logical manner to solve problems as well. Along with this, it measures numerical and data interpretation ability that an engineer – in accordance with industry standards – would be expected to possess.
