Mechanical Engineering covers the broadest range of engineering topics amongst all related disciplines. It is associated with energy generation and distribution; renewable energy systems; transportation (air, sea, land); water supply and sewage distribution; built environments; environmental engineering; precision engineering; engineering materials design, testing, and production; engineering mechanics and dynamics; design and manufacture of engineering components and systems; sensors and actuators, and robots. Mechanical engineers have developed a number of the technologies that have transformed our society including air-conditioning systems, wind turbines, novel materials, offshore structures, automobiles, airplanes, rockets, ships and submersibles, material handling systems, and robots.
As a major branch of Mechanical Engineering and other engineering disciplines, Aerospace Engineering deals with the design, development, construction, and testing of aircraft and spacecraft and their related systems and technology. Aerospace Engineering covering the operation of these vehicles both within the earth’s atmosphere and outside it.
The breadth of the mechanical and aerospace engineering field has given its practitioners a bright and promising future. Many new areas of applications have shown that mechanical and aerospace engineering fosters not only technical innovations but also entrepreneurship.
