Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering turns energy into power and motion. Mechanical Engineers design, create and improve systems and machinery that is used for domestic, public and industrial purposes.
This area covers the design and manufacture of a great variety of products such as domestic appliances, industrial machinery, ships, aircraft, engines, pumps, compressors, and turbines or complex systems such as the air-conditioning and ventilation systems of buildings. The mechanical area interlinks closely with other areas of engineering and applies knowledge of materials, energy, and structures.
Mechanical Engineers often work for industry designing systems and machinery that generate power, make products, move things and help in building. They may also work in chemical processing, power generation, the automotive industry, manufacturing, building services, the aeronautical industry, defense technology, food processing, and public utilities.
