The best way to understand what’s mechanical engineering is by looking at things around you.
Let’s start with when you wake up – you probably look at a clock, for instance – the hands on a clock are the products of mechanical engineering. You might then decide to make some breakfast and head to the refrigerator – again, a product of mechanical engineering. As you leave home, you take the elevator to get to the parking lot. This too is a product of mechanical engineering, as is the electricity that powers the elevator.
Everywhere you look, you can see the applications of mechanical engineering.
