Mechanical engineering

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.

The Mission of Mechanical Engineering

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.

What Mechanical Engineers Know

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:

  • newtonian and quantum physics;
  • material science;
  • сomputer simulation and 3D modeling;
  • higher mathematics;
  • drawing and designing;
  • software tools for data analysis and statistics;
  • production standards and norms;
  • principles of electronics and biomechanics;
  • communication technologies.

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.

Which Tasks Mechanical Engineers Undertake

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.

Today’s engineers

  • design and redesign literally everything, from primitive screws to hi-tech skyscrapers;
  • create layouts and drawings of new devices with the help of modern computer modeling tools;
  • evaluate the usability of various machines in order to make them more accessible and easier to manage;
  • often keep continuous collaboration with specialists from related disciplines such as chemistry, biology, physics, and computer science, to integrate the latest scientific achievements into new equipment;
  • set up tests and gather analytics to improve both the production processes and final products;
  • deliver mechanical engineering services to companies that lack in-house engineers;
  • provide related industries with inventions and know-hows to push technical progress forward;
Latest Trends in Mechanical Engineering

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.

  • Bionics.
    This group of hi-tech achievements includes biomechanical equipment that mimics the behavior of living creatures. Mother Nature demonstrates examples of optimal designs to mechanical engineers all the time. Nearly every part of the human body can be replicated with artificial materials via computer-aided design facilities. Medical science of the near future will widely use 3D-printed organs, digital brain implants, and naturally looking prostheses. Biomechanical engineering promises to make bionic techs a part of our day-to-day routine.
  • Nano-technologies.
    Microscopic robots capable of traveling along blood vessels belong to the booming tech trend of nano-technology. Another specific area of this stack is computer hardware – processors and chips of various sorts. The smaller computers acquire a more profound knowledge about mechanics in microworld matching what engineers know. Progress in software is limited without progress in hardware development. Nano-technologies help invent new materials for the space industry. A more sustainable and environment-
    friendly lifestyle cannot appear without more powerful batteries based on nano-technologies. A technical mechanical engineer is a key element in all of these.
  • Smart urban solutions.
    Autonomous buses, smart homes, self-controlled municipal systems, and many other IoT-based urban solutions, constitute special new entry points for modern technologies. Self-sufficient megalopolises providing a comfortable life for millions of people are not a dystopian dream for modern urban engineers. They are widening the horizons of what we know as cities. Mechanical engineering and cloud solutions go hand in hand in this domain. Smart cities are the places we all will live sooner or later.
  • Robotics.
    Fully automated processes and robotized solutions belong to the field wherein mechanical engineering is king. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are good at making robotics smarter, the ones who make robots more artful, skillful, and sophisticated are mechanical engineers. Even the fastest computer chip. along with super-intelligent software, is meaningless without mechanically advanced hardware for robots. This area is fully occupied by mechanical engineers.
