Rose’s Answer

As a mechanical engineer I have had many different types of engineering jobs. They have included doing computer simulations, animal testing, research and development of medical devices, using test equipment in labs, working on a manufacturing floor, visiting hospitals to talk to doctors, writing papers, etc. There are mechanical engineers who work with automation and assembly lines, design manufacturing floor layouts, build robots, work at food companies, create sports equipment, and build computers. As a mechanical engineer you will have many opportunities to make a difference in the world and be challenged to be the best person you can be. Best of luck!

Rose recommends the following next steps:

Meet with a mechanical engineer to find out what they do at their job.

Richard’s Answer

I googled that question and loved the modified question "which type of engineering is easiest" There is an engineering student with a different perspective! BTW, the answer is always "not mechanical" .

Of the six "types" of engineering nothing is broader then mechanical. Mix and match almost every type of physics, then place it in R&D, Manufacturing, Maintenance, Quality, Safety, and a bunch of other areas of practice and you end up with hundreds of answers.

For the most part , I was in film production, special effects, or game technology. I love a good story well told. SO thats my thing. Every assignment was unique... I even set up a "doggy cam" . Yup its what you think...

Keep asking that question ... to a lot of people... The HVAC engineer stuck in your vent will probably have a completely different answer than the dude dodging the helicopter rotors, even though both involve moving air around.

Do a shadow day at a facility or place that interests you. The more answers you get , the more you see your future in one of the answers.

Probably not mine.

Glenn’s Answer

Masiah, that is a good questions. Mechanical Engineering is the broadest field in engineering. There are many options for mechanical engineers. For me, I have done product development, project management, and people management in consumer electronics and medical devices. Mechanical Engineering work in HVAC (Heating, ventilation and air conditioning.) for sizing units and designing the ventilation systems as well as laying out the plumbing for the buildings. Some MEs go in to technical sales support. There are opportunities in doing Structural Analysis. Many MEs support manufacturing with the layout of the manufacturing floor, design of manufacturing equipment or test equipment. There are also opportunities in Reliability or Regulatory evaluations.

This really just barely scratches the surface. I hope this helps.
