What is Mechanical Engineering?
Mechanical engineering serves humanity by solving problems and making life better, contributing to overall economic development, and protecting the environment. Broadly speaking, mechanical engineers study, design, and fabricate devices and components that move and use energy (i.e., almost everything!). Some examples include automobiles, aircraft, power plants, robots, pollution control systems, environmental remediation systems, children’s toys, motors, engines, and air conditioning and refrigeration systems.
Do you love to tinker, like to help people, worry about the global environment, or take things apart just to see how they work? Then mechanical engineering is for you.
