Mechanical engineers design, develop and manufacture machines that produce, transmit and use power. Wherever machines are produced or used, there are mechanical engineers. They play a pivotal role in nearly everything that makes life work. From seemingly simple devices like doorknobs and zip-lock freezer bags to complex robots and spacecrafts, there is hardly an area of everyday life that hasn’t been influenced by a mechanical engineer somewhere along the path from invention to installation.
It is one of the broadest engineering categories. Mechanisms that mechanical engineers design, manufacture and test include: appliances, clocks, robots, airplanes, weapons, space stations, heating and air conditioning, pumps and turbines, electric power generators, automobiles and engines, hearing aids, artificial knees, air pollution control devices, energy-conserving devices, roller coasters
