Mechanical and aerospace engineers know that life takes engineering, and that their disciplines provide freedom to explore, shape the future, encompass an enterprising spirit, and call for limitless imagination. Engineering makes a world of difference and is essential to our health, happiness, and safety. Mechanical and aerospace engineers are key professionals in the invention, design and manufacture of devices, vehicles, machines, and systems that meet the changing needs of our society.
Mechanical engineers may also apply their expertise to producing, using, and conserving all forms of energy. Aerospace engineers apply their expertise to solving problems in high-speed ground transportation, environmental pollution, and meteorology, as well as being the key professionals in the design and manufacture of air and space vehicles for transportation, exploration, and military purposes.
