Mechanical engineering is the branch of knowledge that applies materials science, engineering mathematics, and engineering physics to analyse, manufacture, design, and maintain mechanical systems.
Mechanical engineering is known to be amongst the broadest as well as the oldest engineering disciplines.
It requires an undeterred understanding of core areas including electricity, structural analysis, materials science, thermodynamics, dynamics, and mechanics.
The operation, production, and design of machinery are all a part of this branch of engineering.
The latest mechanical engineering technologies are:
- Micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS)
- Friction stir welding (FSW)
- Finite element analysis
- Computational fluid dynamics
- Acoustic engineering
