Career Trends

Mechanical Engineers are getting more jobs which are in manufacturing machinery, transportation equipment, computer and electronic products, and fabricated metal products manufacturing industries. Practically every company that designs and produces a product employs a mechanical engineer.  Mechanical Engineers can also be found in research labs, the military, government, and in other professions such as medicine, law or teaching.

Most mechanical engineering jobs require design experience. When a need comes for a new or improved product, companies call upon mechanical engineers to do the job. Engineers have to push beyond the limits of their previous work and use innovative technology to meet project requirements successfully.

A second major area of employment for mechanical engineers is manufacturing. Manufacturing jobs cover nearly everything involved in developing a product, from selecting the appropriate materials to choosing the correct machinery to manufacture the product. Most mechanical engineers in this industry work for equipment manufacturers, aerospace companies, utilities, material processing plants, transportation companies, and petroleum companies. They also work with small firms, consulting practices, universities, and government research labs.

Specific assignments might involve research and development, design of equipment or systems, supervision of production, plant engineering, administration, sales engineering, the testing and evaluation of machines and entire plants. Some mechanical engineering titles and their functions include:

Automotive Engineer: Mechanical engineers design many car parts for the automobile industry. As an automotive engineer, He could solve transportation and safety problems by creating better and more efficient engines or by developing improved safety features

Biomedical Engineer: Mechanical engineers work with a variety of medical professionals to design mobility aids, prosthetics, and artificial organs.

Nuclear Engineer: The design of nuclear power plants requires the services of a mechanical engineer. The engineer must understand the fundamentals of nuclear design; know how to operate the plant efficiently, and evaluate the environmental factors associated with nuclear plants.

Robotics Engineer: A mechanical engineer may design machines that build other machines. For instance, a robotics engineer may be involved with creating the devices that are used in assembling automobiles. Engineers are concerned with the robot’s structure, its joint mechanisms, bearings, and heat transfer characteristics.

Teaching: A desire to help mold the next generation of engineers motivates some mechanical engineers to move into academic careers. Engineers in colleges oversee research activities, manage laboratories, and mentor students. They also write and publish books and technical papers about mechanical engineering.

Mechanical engineers can find employment at virtually any institute where innovation takes place. They commonly work in the government, research, industry, military, teaching, management or consulting sectors.

FIELDS WHERE MECHANICAL STUDENTS FIND OPORTUNITIES FOR PROFESSIONAL GROWTH:
Research and Development (R&D):Engineers whose role is to do research and then plan for new machines and their constituent parts.
Design:Professionals whose responsibility is to draft technical drawings, manually or with the aid of computers.
Production:Engineers who supervise the manufacturing of mechanical components and machines.
Analysis and testing:Engineers who analysis and test different types of machines and their parts to ensure that they function flawlessly.
Installation:Professionals who install machines and mechanical parts at the client location.
Maintenance:Engineers whose primary role is to ensure that machinery works per specifications.
