  2. 2. <ul><li>What is Engineering ? </li></ul><ul><li>Role of an engineer . </li></ul><ul><li>Mechanical Engineering . </li></ul>Introduction
  3. 3. What Mechanical Engineers Do! We design and build things…. Things that move, fly, fold, dance, soar! Would you like to help build this?
  4. 4. MEs make XR3 Hybrid Cars <ul><li>We have ordered the plans, we will start Fall 2009, watch for updates! </li></ul>
  5. 5. MEs Make Morphing Wings <ul><li>First Wing </li></ul><ul><li>Second Wing </li></ul>
  6. 6. Engineering is the profession in which knowledge of mathematical and natural sciences is applied to develop ways to use the materials and forces of nature economically for the benefit of humanity. What is engineering?
  7. 7. <ul><li>Some of the major fields of </li></ul><ul><li>engineering are </li></ul><ul><li>Applied Sciences, </li></ul><ul><li>Mechanical, </li></ul><ul><li>Industrial, </li></ul><ul><li>Electrical, </li></ul><ul><li>Civil, </li></ul><ul><li>Computer Sciences, </li></ul><ul><li>Chemical, </li></ul><ul><li>Natural Gas Engineering etc. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Engineers apply the theories and principles of science and mathematics to research and develop economical solutions to technical problems. </li></ul>Role of an engineer. <ul><li>Engineers design, plan and supervise the construction of buildings, highways and transit systems. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>They develop and implement improved ways to extract , process and use raw materials. </li></ul><ul><li>They develop new materials that both improve the performance of products and take advantage of the advances in technology. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Engineers in each branch have a basic knowledge and training that can be applied in many fields. </li></ul><ul><li>Engineers use computers to produce and analyze designs, to simulate and to test how a machine, structure or system operates. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>What is Mechanical Engineering ? </li></ul><ul><li>Related fields . </li></ul><ul><li>Job opportunities . </li></ul><ul><li>What high school courses are important ? </li></ul><ul><li>Mechanical Engineering at TAMUK . </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Mechanical engineering is one of the largest and broadest engineering field. </li></ul><ul><li>It would be hard to find an area or object in everyday life that was not in some way affected by a mechanical engineer. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Mechanical engineering deals with power and the design of machines and processes used to generate power and apply it to useful purposes. </li></ul><ul><li>Mechanical engineers rely upon knowledge of matter and energy conversions, motion and forces obtained from computer simulations and experimental investigations of processes and systems. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Mechanical engineers work in many industries and their work varies by industry and function. </li></ul><ul><li>Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines. </li></ul>
