Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies engineering physics, engineering mathematics and materials science principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is the oldest and largest engineering field. Mechanical engineers design power-producing machines, such as hydro, solar and wind power generations, internal combustion engines and steam and gas turbines, as well as power-using machines, such as refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. Mechanical engineers design other machines inside buildings, such as elevators and escalators.

Education for Mechanical Engineers

Mechanical engineers typically need a Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering technology. Mechanical engineering programs usually focus on theory and practical application of engineering principles. The course introduces the field of mechanical engineering technology, the knowledge and skills that define the discipline, and possible career options. The student practices the use of spreadsheets to present and analyze information related to the field. Exercises are based on the field of mechanical engineering and expose the student to various topics (materials, energy, strength, fluids, heat, etc.) where information and numerical data are acquired, organized, analyzed and presented. Other topics include career options, professional development, ethics, leadership, team work and time management. They may emphasize internships and co-operations to prepare students for work in industry.

The mechanical engineering field requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis. In addition to these core principles, mechanical engineers use tools such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and engineering management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, weapons, and others. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery.
