Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering are interdisciplinary degrees that teach students how to design or improve mechanical and thermal devices and systems using analysis and computer-aided design. Engineering schools teach students how to find solutions to develop new processes and products, ranging from small component designs to extremely large plants, machinery, or vehicles.
You should study a Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering if you have a passion for creating machines and can see yourself developing new tools and devices that solve challenges faced by industries and society. To be an effective mechanical engineer, you will have to stay in touch with the latest industry trends and developments.
Mechanical Engineering majors are offered as B.Sc. degrees (Bachelors of Science) or B.Eng. (Bachelors in Engineering) degrees and usually take 3 years to graduate in the EU, and 4 years in the USA. While studying a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering you can develop your technical skills and specialise in the main fields of Mechatronics, Materials Science, Robotics and Automation.
Mechanical Engineering Bachelor's courses teach students how to use computer applications to complete their projects and develop in-depth knowledge of Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics (especially Mechanics, Thermodynamics and Electricity). You will take courses that teach you how to use technical design tools like Autodesk, MATLAB, CATIA, and many more.
Mechanical Engineering Bachelors will offer you a wide range of skills, developing your versatility and problem-solving abilities. You will need strong analytical thinking and communication capabilities to be able to coordinate with your team and understand your customer expectations. You will learn how to analyse challenges, design solutions, manufacture and test the right products.
Graduates of Mechanical Engineering Bachelors can find work developing new technologies in Transport, Aerospace, Healthcare (like Biomedicine or Dentistry), Construction, and Robotics. A recent trend in Mechanical Engineering is the increasing demand for automation and smart homes, cars and devices. Research and design in nanotechnology are also turning Science Fiction into science fact.
In addition to designing machines, part of your responsibilities as a future mechanical engineer will involve calculating project costs and deadlines, writing technical manuals and upgrading and progressing new technologies.Read more about studying a Mechanical Engineering degree
