OVERVIEW OF A CAREER IN ENGINEERING


WORKING IN ENGINEERING

What is an Engineer?

Mechanical engineering is one of the most widespread engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers are responsible for designing, building, developing, testing and overseeing a wide range of mechanical and thermal sensors and devices, including tools, motors and machines. They design and build mechanical, thermal and sensory equipment such as air compressors, heat exchangers, power plants, generators, pumps, air conditioning and other equipment.

Mechanical engineers need good problem-solving skills in order to be able to use scientific discoveries and design and build useful products. They use their work as a source of inspiration and inspiration for the conception, development and implementation of their projects. A creative spirit is indispensable for this type of work and also for a successful career as a professional engineer.

Like other engineers, mechanical engineers also use computers intensively and are routinely responsible for integrating sensors and controls into machines. Computer technology helps machine builders create and analyze designs, run simulations, test how machines are likely to function, interact with connected systems, and generate specifications for parts.
