Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers design, develop and manufacture machines that produce, transmit and use power. Wherever machines are produced or used, there are mechanical engineers. They play a pivotal role in nearly everything that makes life work. From seemingly simple devices like doorknobs and zip-lock freezer bags to complex robots and spacecrafts, there is hardly an area of everyday life that hasn’t been influenced by a mechanical engineer somewhere along the path from invention to installation.

It is one of the broadest engineering categories. Mechanisms that mechanical engineers design, manufacture and test include:

  • appliances
  • clocks
  • robots
  • airplanes
  • weapons
  • space stations
  • heating and air conditioning
  • pumps and turbines
  • electric power generators
  • automobiles and engines
  • hearing aids
  • artificial knees
  • air pollution control devices
  • energy-conserving devices
  • roller coasters
