Mechanical Engineering GPSC
Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest of the engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers have many a times changed the cause of history. Form the invention of wheel to the invention of steam engines and development of aircraft, mechanical engineers brought about some of the major turning points in human history.
This is the field of engineering that centers on the designing, constructing, operating and maintaining the machines and mechanical systems i.e. mechanical engineers deal with anything that moves- from parts of machines to the human body. Mechanical engineering careers focus on using mathematics and science along with engineering knowledge to develop technologies to satisfy the needs of humanity.
Mechanical engineers design power producing machines such as IC engines, electric generators, steam and gas-turbines as well as power consuming machines such as refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. They are employed in industries to design, test, manufacture, install, operate and maintain various types of machines that are used in the industries.
