Description:Like every field of Engineering, Mechanical Engineering applies the discoveries of science to the design and creation of things that are safe, reliable and practical. Mechanical Engineers direct their efforts towards the creation of physical or mechanical things, whether they be single components, complete machines, or complex processes. Mechanical Engineering rests on some basic principles: the effects of forces and energy on solids and liquids; the properties of materials; the design of mechanisms and manufacturing processes; and the integration of mechanical, electronic and computer systems. With today's technology and tools, Mechanical Engineers can apply these fundamentals to create a stunning variety of cutting-edge products.
