Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is a broad field that traditionally comprises three primary subfields: energy, mechanisms and machinery, and manufacturing. The work done by mechanical engineers includes the design, construction, and use of systems for the conversion of energy available from natural sources (water, fossil fuels, nuclear fuels, solar radiation) to other forms of useful energy (for transportation, heat, light, power); design and production of machines to lighten the burden of servile human work and to do work otherwise beyond human capability; processing of materials into useful products; and creative planning, development, and operation of systems using energy, machines, and resources.
