Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical engineers are concerned with the optimal use of materials, energy, time, and individual efforts to serve societal needs through the design of machines, structures, mechanical and thermal systems, and through better understanding of dynamic processes involving these systems. They have a wide involvement in many industries including aerospace, automotive, biomechanical and biomedical engineering, construction, electronics, manufacturing, national defense, power generation, and transportation.

Within these industries, mechanical engineer might specialize in the design, analysis, automation, operation, or marketing of systems or services. The individual’s contribution may lie anywhere in the spectrum from highly theoretical to imminently practical, and often involves leadership as an engineering manager or organization executive.
