What are some related careers I should consider for mechanical engineering?
I would like to know the career paths I could be on for mechanical engineering. What does it offer me to work on? I want to know about the kind of careers that deal with programming mostly. #career #mechanical-engineering #career-path #programming #help #advice
If you are interested in pursuing Mechanical Engineering related careers which deal with programming. my advice keeping in view the next 10-15 years will be to concentrate on Robotics.
Gloria, programming and mechanical engineering have some interesting overlap. CAD (Computer Aided Design) and Analysis Software requires understanding of Mechanical Engineering. Analysis software would include FEA, Tolerance Analysis, CFD, Mold flow. I expect that this area will continue to expand.
If you get involved with manufacturing automation, a lot of times the mechanical engineers are involved in programming the automation equipment. Getting the timing right for each step is critical to have the line work correctly.
As Rizwan also stated, Robotics may also an area that the mechanical engineers need to do programming.
