Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineers research, develop, and build machines that help others and deal with any moving part in machines (StateUniversity). They can do anything from designing cars and engines all the way to power plants. In order to become a mechanical engineer though most companies require a 4 year degree from a notable college, but most of the time a company that hires you on as a mechanical engineer will pay for more schooling at no cost for you. This occupation is also really good because of the high pay you would receive. There are a lot of jobs available in the field of Mechanical Engineering. There are always new products being developed, so there is a continuous flow of engineering jobs to design and produce prototypes, and then the final product. On average a mechanical engineer’s starting salary is about $44,000 and can yield pay all the way up to $90,000 (PayScale). But the better amount of schooling that you have, the more money you will end up making. Unlike other types of engineering, mechanical engineering is the broadest, because it can be used and applied in almost every single type of engineering (StateUniversity). And without mechanical engineering we wouldn’t have half of the luxuries and necessities that we have today. This is because mechanical engineering can date all the way back to the beginning of the industrial revolution and has been applied and used to design, create and manufacture necessary machines needed to function in everyday life back then and now. But no matter what everywhere you look mathematics is used in it. Not only in mechanical engineering only, but also in every type of engineering but mechanical engineering uses math and science the most. You always have to take angles, measurements, and find velocity and pressure etc. of many things. While of types of engineering might use all of those variables, they are ESSENTIAL for mechanical engineering. But although you will occasionally be out in the...
