Mechanical engineers are one of many different groups of engineers. This group works in the area of solving mechanical and thermal problems, as well as designing systems that use advanced thermal or mechanical ideas and components. They create many commonly used machines, and much of their work is done on a computer, as with other fields.
The average salary for a mechanical engineer is $83,060 annually.
This is a great field for anyone interested in creating machines that will be widely used in everyday lives.
