Mechanical engineering is a broad profession creatively engaged in the design, production and operation of devices, machines and systems which extend our physical abilities. Mechanical engineers are involved in activities such as energy conversion and utilization, machinery design, manufacturing processes, automatic control, bio-mechanics and transportation of all forms. Mechanical engineers study the response of materials to forces and energy flows. Using their understanding of these basic processes, mechanical engineers design space vehicles, aircraft, automobiles, robots, medical equipment, prostheses, and the multitude of mechanical devices which we depend on every day but often take for granted. Typical career paths: The study of engineering fosters the development of quantitative, analytical, and problem-solving skills which are very useful in many different career areas. On average, 70% to 80% of graduates with a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree choose employment in private industry; federal, state, and local government agencies; and in private practice. Approximately 15% to 20% of the electrical engineering graduates will choose to continue their education toward a master’s degree or Ph.D., and a few graduates will choose to attend law, medical, or business schools. Students who earn advanced degrees in engineering usually pursue a career in advanced research or as a faculty member in a college of engineering.
