Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers create and build mechanical devices. They apply the fundamentals of science and math to create practical, useful solutions that the rest of us can use.

Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that derives its breadth from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices (e.g., microscale sensors and inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g., spacecraft and machine tools). The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace.

What did we use

Mechanical engineers are generally optimistic about their ability to solve major global problems over the next two decades, although they believe they will need additional skills to remain competitive, according to a new study by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).Based on a survey of more than 1,200 engineers with a minimum of two years' experience in mechanical engineering-related positions, ASME found that about half of respondents are optimistic about the ability of the engineering profession to meet global challenges over the next 10-20 years, with roughly an equal saying they are moderately optimistic. Approximately 3 percent of respondents are not optimistic.

What they do...

With an average salary of $85,930 in 2013, mechanical engineers are filling their coffers at a higher rate than a number of other technology jobs. Computer programmers, by comparison, make $80,930. The gap is wider for computer support specialists, who earn an average annual salary of $64,160.
