I'm working as a Systems Engineer and I have both Bachelors and Masters degrees in Electrical Engineering. My nature of work is Electrical Systems Engineering. And my past work experience is Embedded Software Development and Systems Engineering only. My employer has filed PERM with SOC as "Mechanical Engineers". Will it be a problem? Also, in future if I change employer after I-140 approval, will it be a problem? Do I need to look out for only those jobs with Mechanical SOC? Can I-140 be ported without any issues to new employer in the future if the new employer SOC will be different?

Nobody here can tell you SOC codes about your job. This is your employers and their attorneys responsibility. If they filed with "Mechanical Engineer" then you will have to trust them and let them do their job.

Will it be a problem ? No body knows. Employers file PERM with all the correct SOC codes and still get denials and audits on PERM , i140 or 485 stage. Each case is different and no one can review your case here on the forums. Your best bet is to work with your employer or a immigration attorney who deals with PERM and GC process.

An I-140 can never be ported. Only the PD can be reused if certain conditions are met.

You should have discussed stuff like the SOC with your employer and his lawyer.
