Mechanical

Mechanical engineering jobs

One of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines, mechanical engineers design and develop everything that’s thought of as a machine, applying the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. This can include everything from supersonic fighter jets to bicycles and toasters.

Many mechanical engineers specialise in areas such as manufacturing, robotics, automotive/transportation and air conditioning, although they will be found in virtually any manufacturing industry. The job requires an understanding of core principles including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics and materials science teamed with a range of transferable skills, such as maths, science, technology, business and management.

The field has continually evolved to incorporate advancements in technology, and mechanical engineers today are persuing developments in such fields as composites, mechatronics and nanotechnology. Mechanical engineering overlaps with aerospace engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, petroleum engineering and chemical engineering.

You should be able to solve problems using both logic and creative/innovative approaches, be numerate and highly computer literate, able to plan and prioritise, work to deadlines and under pressure, and able to communicate with others and work in multidisciplinary teams.
