Mechanical Engineers

Last updated December 31, 2014

Every day you come in contact with many machines. There’s the clock radio that wakes you up, and the car, bus, or bike you take to school. You use calculators, computers, stereos, and phones throughout the day. Finally, you come home and use the microwave, stove, refrigerator, and electric can opener as you help with dinner.

Our lives are a lot easier today, thanks to the mechanical engineers who imagined and built these tools. In a world where we depend on machines more than ever before, mechanical engineers keep things running.

Mechanical engineers develop, build, care for, and improve tools, machines, and systems.

It Helps To Be...

A creative, curious, and logical problem solver. Mechanical engineers need to be visual thinkers who can turn data and theories into useful devices.

Make High School Count

  • Take advanced math and physics.
  • Sign up for computer-aided drafting and design.
  • Work on your writing skills -- you’ll need to write reports that explain your ideas.
  • Take shop class. You’ll need to know how machines and tools work.
  • Study a foreign language. That way, you’ll be ready to cope in an increasingly global manufacturing industry.
