4. Walt Disney Company
Duties and Responsibilities
Mechanical Engineers must be able to work as a team as well as independently. They have to be able to design, build, or fix an object or tool. Communication skills and creative thinking are a must. they work with a broad array of specialists so group work will always be involved.
Try studying as much math and science as possible in high school. Computer courses aren't a bad idea either. Physics and calculus are very important in mechanical engineering. On your own time it would help to learn how many appliances work. Try taking different objects apart. This will get you prepared for whats to come.
