Mechanical engineers design, analyse, manufacture and maintain mechanical systems. You'll learn about developing and using new materials and technologies and gain an understanding of mechanical engineering theory.
"Anything that moves, probably has a team of mechanical engineers behind it. It's a fun discipline. Where it's different to civil and electrical. Civil, everything doesn't move. Mechanical, everything moves. Electrical, electrons are moving around, but we can't see them. So Mechanical, we can see what's moving,
Mechanical engineering has many career opportunities. It's very broad. We'll have mechanical engineers working in design work. In high tech areas like aerospace, vehicle development, biomedical areas, developing artificial limbs or mechanical hearts."
