Mechanical Engineering

Although mechanical engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines used by mankind, it was not until the European Industrial Revolution of the 1700s that mechanical engineering became a formal area of study and practical application. This engineering discipline involves the use of scientific principles to create tools and equipment made from adequate materials. Today, mechanical engineering impacts nearly every industry that requires physical infrastructure, and the age old engineering practice keeps pace with the times by incorporating the latest technological advances into its standard processes. The skill set associated with mechanical engineering is portable across continents and presents special opportunities for those pursuing careers in mechanical engineering.
