Because they create solutions and solve problems

Mechanical engineers develop processes and they design and implement the moving parts in a range of industries.

They are needed on all stages of a product, from research and development to design and manufacture, through to installation and final commissioning.

Most industries rely on mechanical systems and therefore mechanical engineering is thought to be one of the most diverse of all engineering disciplines.

There are employment opportunities for Mechanical Engineers in a range of sectors including:

  • Aerospace – investigating aircraft failures, for example
  • Automotive – improving the self-driving mechanisms in vehicles, for example
  • Biomedical – developing a mechanical heart, for example
  • Construction – designing the fire sprinkler system for a commercial building, for example
  • Manufacturing – automating a factory, for example
  • Power – finding innovative uses for coal, wind and tidal flow, for example
  • Railway – integrating technology to enhance safety on the trains, for example

Mechanical engineers can also be involved in the management of people, projects and resources.

Mechanical Engineers are very much in demand today and will continue to remain so as we enter the Fourth Industrial Revolution
