Robotics

As a mechanical engineer working in the field of robotics, you may design and fabricate
machines and devices that interact with their surroundings and can be operated remotely. Robots
can range from simple machinery to complex creations that perform repetitive tasks in
manufacturing settings, hazardous tasks too dangerous for humans or more nuanced motions,
such as moving a limb. As a robotics engineer, you may work in many different industries,
including agriculture and transportation.
Thermodynamics

If you're working in thermodynamics, your focus is on energy and the systems available to
conserve and transform it for a number of different uses. For example, you may design systems
that change thermal heat into mechanical energy. You could work in geothermal energy
production or refrigeration. You may use your knowledge of heat transfer and fluid mechanics to
help design power plants, propulsion systems or refrigeration and air conditioning systems.
Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology engineers manipulate atoms and molecules measured in nanometers, or onebillionth of a meter, for use in manufacturing and modeling. In this field, you'll apply your
knowledge of the principles of mechanical engineering to problem solving at this smallest of
scales, where materials, because of their size, may behave differently. You'll seek to take
advantage of these differences in your work to improve manufacturing and other processes.
Manufacturing

When you're a mechanical engineer who works in manufacturing, you may have a variety of
jobs, ranging from the design and development of machines, to working in research or testing.
Common to all of these jobs is the task of exploring efficient ways to convert raw materials into
finished goods. You may also find opportunities to work in the design and coordination of
production systems. Working in this field, you'll help make a variety of products, including cars,
airplanes, toys, electronics and recreational equipment.

The Mechanical Engineer Construction manages the planning, design, construction


and maintenance of various mechanical systems in buildings and structures;
ensures compliance with relevant building codes and safety regulations.

Roles of Mechanical Engineers in Automobile Industry


A lot actually. Since mechanical engineers are also good at designing machines, its
components, systems and processes, they can be in-charge in evaluating designs
created by automotive engineers to ensure safety, efficiency and reliabilities of the

vehicles being produced. Like for example, they can refine automobile models and
its components so that these can pass safety standards and be viable for
commercialization.
Materials and Structures Fabrication
As such, before the mechanical engineers must design products they must also
consider the materials needed for it. They know which materials among plastic,
metal, ceramics or other composite materials can be best for the equipment they
make. When everything is set up and operational, they test, analyze and check the
structural integrity of the gears, pipeline welds, sections and drive-train elements
for structural integrity and make analysis for any signs of mechanical wear. To do
these, they use tools such as X-ray machines, magnetic particle equipment,
ultrasound and other apparatus in examining the internal condition of machines just
to ensure reliability and safety.
