Mechanical engineers are involved with the conception, design, manufacture, control, maintenance and management of any system in which motion is a key feature.
The system may comprise moving solid elements – components – combined to create a mechanism or machine. Alternatively, it may involve a fluid flowing within or around a solid structure.
Mechanical engineering permits us to harness the energy and forces that exist in nature, providing for the needs of society. The range of mechanical engineering is therefore vast; machines from the size of micro-mechanical devices through to massive power-generating turbines are covered by the discipline. Similarly, the flight and performance of modern aircraft is largely an accomplishment of mechanical engineering
