Mechanical Engineering Jobs

Mechanical Engineering Job Overview

Mechanical Engineers work with hundreds of different types of mechanical items. They often work with other professionals, including automobile designers and architects, to ensure that the blueprints and designs they created will work in practice. Mechanical Engineers then use computer software and other types of equipment to go through those schematics line by line to look for any issues. After determining that the blueprints are safe, they work with the designer to produce a representational model and oversee the production of that item.

Mechanical Engineering Job Education Requirements

Mechanical Engineers must have a minimum of a bachelor's degree before working in the field. Those interested in research and design aspects typically need a graduate degree as well. These degree programs require a large amount of math and science courses, but students can also take courses on drafting and design. Those hoping to work independently or charge a fee for their Mechanical Engineering services must also apply for a license in the state where they reside. Obtaining a license usually requires the successful passing of a criminal background check and the payment of a licensing fee, but it may also require that applicants take a proficiency examination.
