What is Mechanical Engineering?!!
Transcript of What is Mechanical Engineering?!!
Show Me The Money!!!!
Now to answer the question you've been wondering since the beginning. How much money do we make?? It all depends. If you work for a company it depends on your hourly wage and how many hours you work. For instance, if your hourly wage is $39.47 and you work all year, full time and your hours add up to 2,080 hours you'll make $82,100 annually. But the average amount a mechanical engineer makes $85,930 annually.
James Watt: the father of engineering
Born January 19th 1736, James Watt is considered the Father of the Steam Age and the Founder of Mechanical Engineering. Watt didn't actually event the steam engine but instead improved the design making it cheaper to run. But Watt was one of the leading figures in the industrial revolution. James watt died in 1819 at the age of 83.
After Graduation...Where Do I Go?
Choosing what college to go to is one of the most important decisions you'll make in your life! Besides deciding not to go to your family reunion this year...Here's a list of the top 5 engineering colleges in the world:
1. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
2. Stanford University
3. University of Cambridge
4. Harvard University
5. National University of Singapore (NUS)
What is Mechanical Engineering?!!
Mechanical engineering is the Yoda of all engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and most respected discipline in the field of engineering. It's also one of the broadest engineering disciplines including Aerospace, Automotive, Biomedical, Naval, and more.
Structures structures & structures!!!
Mechanical engineers do lots of things. They design, develop, build, and test the very things you use in everyday life. And of course being a mechanical engineer isn't easy. In order to become one, you have to have at least a bachelor's degree in the field of study. But getting that degree is worth it because mechanical engineers work to improve people's lives. They design mechanical devices, test them, analyze test results, redesign if needed and once the device is perfected it's sent off to stores or companies for use.
Other famous engineers
Other famous engineers besides James Watt include:
1. Alfred Hitchcock
2. Neil Armstrong
3. Thomas Edison
4. Leonardo da Vinci
5. Alexander Graham Bell
6. Henry Ford
7. Bill Nye
8. Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards
What Do We Do?
Mechanical engineers build and develop all kinds of things-especially things we use in everyday life. Things like satellites, space stations, cars, photovoltaic panels, wind turbines and other green energy sources. They even make the equipment medical doctors, dentists, and sports players use!
