What is M.E.?

Mechanical Engineering is a well recognized and respected profession in which people design, develop, and manufacture components and processes that do useful work. These, in turn, are used to improve the lives of individuals and serve society.

How Do We Design, Develop & Manufacture …


In broad terms,

  • M.E.’s use mathematics and basic science (dynamics, solid mechanics, thermodynamics, etc.) to describe quantitatively the behavior of the component or process under consideration.
  • M.E.’s use this description to made design choices that promote good/beneficial system behavior and suppress bad/unwanted system behavior. This process.
