Mechanical engineering is that branch of engineering which is concerned with mechanical and energy systems, along with the intelligent use of modern materials. Mechanical engineers conceive, plan, design, and direct the manufacture, distribution, and operation of a wide variety of devices, machines, and systems for energy conversion, environmental control, materials processing, transportation, materials handling, and other purposes. Although it is one of the oldest disciplines of engineering, Mechanical Engineering is constantly changing with innovative advances in technology. It touches almost every aspect of our life, from medical devices to kitchen appliances, from new materials, such as plastics and composites, to alternative fuels, from robots in manufacturing to micro-machines in electronics and surgery, from automobiles to space craft, etc.
