Mechanical Engineers touch almost every aspect of technology.They create machines, products and technological systems that benefit society.
Mechanical engineering projects can range from designing heart valves and artificial limbs, clockwork radios and dentists' drills, building racing cars, jet engines, space modules, solar heaters and wind mills. Mechanical Engineering is a large and diversified field. All engineers have a common interest in heat and motion. Mechanical engineers use the principles of mathematics,material science, physics and economics to design, to manufacture and to maintain mechanical equipments. Our household appliances, chimneys, cars, ships and airplanes have been designed, tested and manufactured by mechanical engineers. Wherever there are machines, there is a necessity of Mechanical Engineers. Wherever Mechanical Engineers work, they are engaged in one or more of eight different fields: Research, Development, Design, Testing, Manufacturing, Operations, Maintenance, Marketing & Sales Administration. Mechanical Engineering is specifically concerned with anything that has movable parts. As a result, there are job opportunities for Mechanical Engineers in all fields of work such as transport, health, defence, manufacturing, power station, energy management, entertainment, finance, publishing, building, design and research, to name a few.
