About Mechanical and Energy Systems Engineering

Mechanical engineering is the broadest of all engineering disciplines. It deals with diverse engineering problems in solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, aerodynamics, heat transfer, energy conversion, vibration, design, manufacturing, controls, materials science and electromechanical systems. Mechanical engineers are employed in almost every industry. If there are moving parts or if energy is converted from one form to another, a mechanical engineer was responsible for the design.
