What is Mechanical Engineering?

Mechanical Engineering is the profession
related to the study and use of machines.



Machines range from automobiles to the human body


Machines require power (
thermodynamics, combustion
)


Machines pollute (
air pollution control
)


Machines move, so their motion must be understood, both
by itself (
kinematics
) and in the surrounding air (
fluids
)


Machines must be constructed (
manufacturing
)


Machines have to be made from something (
materials
)


Machines make heat that has to be removed (
heat transfer
and fluid mechanics
)
