Nick’s Answer

Mechanical engineering is a very wide field of study and work. A good thing about it is that a person can always find a niche where their talent and interest can lead to a good career. Everything you see around you is within the domain of mechanical engineering. Even nature and the environment is governed by the laws of physics which is the basis of all engineering. You need to cultivate a curiosity and knowledge of materials, how things work and how they are made. The education for this is intense as you learn the laws that govern these things. Mastery of mathematics will be critical however mastery of design software is equally important and automates calculations. I recommend you seek good internships where the practical application of your learning would help you decide which branch of mechanical engineering to follow.

A typical Mechanical Engineer is well paid and can enjoy a middle class to upper middle class lifestyle depending on talent and ambition.
