Hello! My name is Kevin Jorge, and I am currently studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Miami. Mechanical Engineering is the most general discipline of engineering and can be applied and incorporated with almost any of the other disciplines of engineering. Mechanical Engineering is a branch of engineering that applies physics as well as the science of materials for designing, analyzing, and manufacturing mechanical systems. Mechanical systems can be anything from engines to simple everyday tools. Mechanical Engineering also relies heavily on heat and mechanical power to design and create the mechanical systems and tools they design. Typically, knowledge of CAD (Computer Aided Design) Software is a must in this industry, as most of the design and cost analysis are done using technology and must first be designed on a computer.
Mechanical Engineering is a very exciting field, in my opinion. It is a progressive discipline of engineering, one that will always be around to pave the way for new inventions and maintain the benchmark of human ingenuity. As engineers, research is an essential “tool of the trade” used to gather data on how different things work and how to improve on them. Mechanical Engineering is a field that is always changing and advancing because it always involves making technology better. Mechanical engineering is an essential trade in the engineering of automobiles. This is the specific field that I would like to get into. Working with engines and making the most economical and efficient engines is a very important part of this field, and will have a major impact on the future for industries around the world. Mechanical Engineering is the basis of all machinery and technology that surrounds everything a human being interacts with. What i love about mechanical engineering, is that this field focuses on a crucial point of what our society thrives on.
As the times continue to change and new inventions are being developed, the demand for innovative engineers has never been higher. One problem that I believe to be as one of the most pressing issues we humans face today is the issue of energy. As the world’s reliance on fossil fuels and non-renewable sources of energy continues to take its toll on the environment and people everywhere, we are literally in a race against time to come up with a solution to this problem. As a future engineer, it is our duty to assess and tackle such problems and create solutions that will benefit society as a whole and move us forward. In my opinion, there is no greater calling or job in life than to dedicate oneself to the betterment of others around you. As an engineer, I hope to change the world around me and know that I had a positive impact not only on my family and friends and those close to me, but an impact on the world as well.
