Find out more information about Mechanical Engineering

Believe it or not, the work of mechanical engineers can actually make the difference between life and death. After all, mechanical engineers are the ones responsible for the safety features in cars, the development of medical devices, and the maintenance of aircrafts.

Being a mechanical engineer means applying the basic engineering principles and mechanical processes that we need to create the machines and devices we use every day. Mechanical engineering is a broad area that involves the research, design, testing and manufacturing of motor vehicles, aircrafts, healthcare devices, and robots.

Basically, mechanical engineers deal with any machinery that moves or generates motion and energy. As a sub-field of the Engineering and Technology field, Mechanical Engineering requires advanced knowledge of mathematics, problem-solving (combined with creativity) skills, and the ability to prioritize work under pressure.

Students who graduate from a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering can engage in promising careers in any sector of the engineering industry. Apart from automobiles, mechanical engineers of today are involved in:

• Aerospace engineering
• Biomedical engineering
• Electrical engineering
• Energy engineering
