Mechanical engineering remains the main field of knowledge that allows us to create mechanisms of all sorts, as long as the fundamentals of physics are in power. However, unshakable laws of mechanics seem too sensitive for some cutting-edge technologies, such as quantum computing and bionics.
The development of 3D printing might shift the very essence of manufacturing from mechanical engineering to pure software development. But predicting massive industrialization is a shallow effort. The expertise of mechanical engineers is, and will continue to be, an indispensable element of any industry. No one can replace live mechanical engineers, even in the future.
We have arguments why this is so.
Though the term “post-industrial paradigm” is gaining popularity, we live in the era of hyper industrialization. All advanced technologies, from nano-robots to super-tankers, have their roots in the same need of making our physical reality more convenient for human life.
The person who invented the wheel was a proto-engineer. Namely, mechanical engineers will be the ones who will invent the first Faster Than Light (FTL) starship. The main task of all engineers in the past, present, and future is turning a conceptual idea into a working structure, be it a horse-driven cart or an IoT-based smart city.
Mechanical engineers are all artists to some extent: they create that which has never existed before; they produce technical wonders. At the same time, they must be far from blue-sky thinking: their prototypes must perform utilitarian functions at the end of the day.
Mechanical engineering companies can survive in the market only if the systems they create strictly meet both the expectations of customers, and the requirements of certain technological stacks. To put it simply, if they work well.
Every mechanical engineer design must go through numerous iterations, testing, and fine-tuning before being put into production. The amount of knowledge and experience every modern engineer must obtain is immense:
Mechanical engineers balance on a very fine line between pure science and practice: on the one hand, this is the era of knowledge. On the other hand, the modern economy accepts only feasible solutions. That is why highly skilled professionals constitute the main value of all mechanical engineering firms.
The current global technology leader – the USA, has about 300K mechanical engineers with an average salary of $87,560. What does that huge army of quite expensive professionals do? Every certified mechanical engineer is engaged in a set of activities determined by a particular industry. Since every modern sector is full of machines and mechanisms, mechanical engineers are continuously improving those systems in terms of functionality and efficiency.
Top mechanical engineering companies are focused on many promising technology trends that will make this world a better place to live. Therend patternss can be combined in several groups, each of which runs under the name of a particular technology.
Technical progress is moving forward all the time. Innovations in IT-mechanics appear here and there, day after day. Our team of service engineers is closely monitoring them to implement the best solutions in our clients’ projects.
No matter what project size we have to deal with, we always do our best to fix vulnerabilities, improve performance indicators, optimize usability, and even create a new design from scratch if necessary.
Our remote engineering group can work as a part of your existing staff. We provide dedicated team services to those who lack professional human resources.
Sirin Software possesses rich experience in both hardware and software development. We offer a transparent collaboration agenda and profound project management.
