Department of Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering is one of the largest, broadest, and oldest engineering disciplines.
Mechanical engineers use the principles of energy, materials, and mechanics to design and
manufacture machines and devices of all types. They create the processes and systems that
drive technology and industry. Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, manufacture,
and test tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices.
The key characteristics of the profession are its breadth, flexibility, and individuality. The career paths of mechanical engineers are largely determined by individual choices, a decided advantage in a changing world.
