Mechanical Engineering Job Description

What is a Mechanical Engineering?

A Mechanical engineer is responsible for the research, design, development, building, and testing of mechanical and thermal devices, including tools, engines, and machines. Mechanical engineers design, build, install and maintain all kinds of mechanical machinery, tool, and components. Additionally, mechanical engineers provide efficient solutions to the development of processes and products, ranging from small component designs to extremely large plant, machinery or vehicles. Mechanical engineers generally work in professional office settings and occasionally visit worksites where a problem or piece of equipment needs their personal attention.

A bachelor's degree in Mechanical engineering along with 4 years in an engineering leadership role is required for mechanical engineers. Additionally, a BSME license is required. Successful mechanical engineers possess excellent analytical and mathematical skills and are keen on working in a team environment.
