Scot’s Answer

Hi Axel,
That is an interesting question. If you decide to become a mechanical engineer, you will enjoy many other benefits in your personal life. Your training and experience as an engineer will translate well to solving problems in your life. Engineering work is very project oriented. It requires discipline, patience, ability to multi-task, and the ability to manage projects. Whether you are building a house, coaching your child's sports team, researching which car you'd like to buy, or learning something new, the skills you acquired as an engineer will help you in these areas.

Richard’s Answer

The main benefit is that there are many subdisciplines to choose from and most are relevant in your local environment. This means that many cannot be outsourced and you have career stability for a lifetime.

Glenn’s Answer

Axel, that is an interesting question. How does your career choice benefit you? I always looked at what are my challenges and what do I find personally rewarding. If you have a good aptitude in mathematics and physically sciences, mechanical engineering is a career path that can be challenging and you will continue to learn, grow, and be creative. It also pays well for new graduates.


I have been in product development my entire career. I have worked on consumer electronics and medical devices. I have my name on about 12 patents. This is not meant to be bragging, but to show you that I have had the opportunity to work on products that require a lot of creativity.

Hi Axel,

What are the benefits to you of being a mechanical engineer - maybe none.  What are your other options?
