Mechanical engineering is one of the largest, broadest and oldest engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers use the principles of energy, materials and mechanics to design and manufacture machines and devices of all types. They create the processes and systems that drive technology and industry. The key characteristics of the profession are its breadth, flexibility and individuality.

The career paths of mechanical engineers are largely determined by individual choices, a decided advantage in a changing world.

Mechanics, energy and heat, mathematics, engineering sciences, design and manufacturing forms the foundation of mechanical engineering. Mechanics includes fluids, ranging from still water to hypersonic gases flowing around a space vehicle; it involves the motion of anything from a particle to a machine or complex structure.

Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, manufacture and test tools, engines, machines and other mechanical devices. Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines. Engineers in this discipline work on power-producing machines such as electric generators, internal combustion engines and steam and gas turbines. They also work on power-using machines such as refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment, machine tools, material handling systems, elevators and escalators, industrial production equipment and robots used in manufacturing. Mechanical engineers also design tools that other engineers need for their work.

In addition, mechanical engineers work in manufacturing or agriculture production, maintenance or technical sales; many become administrators or managers.
