For the specialty of mechanical engineering are you in the field more or is it more of a desk job?

I am curious because I love the idea of actually being able to work with my hands and be out in the field but I'm not 100% sure that being a mechanical engineer means I'd get to do that. #engineering #mechanical-engineering...
