What is Mechanical Engineering?
Mechanical engineering is designing a component, a machine, a system, or a process. This ranges from the macro to the micro, from the largest systems like cars and satellites to the smallest components like sensors and switches. Anything that needs to be manufactured, indeed, anything with moving parts needs the expertise of a mechanical engineer. Mechanical engineering combines creativity, knowledge and analytical tools to complete the difficult task of shaping an idea into reality.
core areas of mechanical engineering includes mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided design, and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, and others.
