What is Mechanical Engineering?
Mechanical Engineering is the discipline of engineering that deals with the design, construction and design of machines. I would enjoy pursuing a job in this field because I enjoy tinkering with small items and assembling them together with other small parts to make a larger piece with bigger purpose.
