Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is an extremely diverse and exciting discipline of engineering, full of opportunities. 

What is Mechanical Engineering?

Mechanical Engineers design, build, test and maintain all manner of machines in all manner of places. It’s covers virtually all areas of development and production like:

  • Analysis
  • Design
  • Development
  • Manufacturing
  • Operation
  • Maintenance

The skills leaned as a mechanical engineer are applicable across multiple industries including motor vehicles development, aircraft and ships construction, propulsion design, power plants and robotics.

Mechanical Engineers are masters of energy, motion, forces, solids, liquids and gases and numbers. Depending on your area of interest, you can apply these skills to any number of sub-disciplines of Mechanical Engineering.

Options include:

  • Power generation
  • Noise and vibration control
  • Flow analysis and measurement
  • Transport
  • Design & simulation
  • Composite structures.
  • Building Services
  • Consulting
  • Infrastructure
  • Acoustics
  • Medical Devices
