A Career in Mechanical Engineering
According to JobWeb.com, mechanical engineering is one
of the top ten degrees in demand for industry. The Bureau
of Labor Statistics expects an increase of more than
10 percent in the number of mechanical engineering positions
through 2014 and the demand for engineers in general
is likely to increase during the next 20 years as industrial
machinery and processes become increasingly complex.
Emerging technologies in biotechnology, materials science,
and nanotechnology will also contribute to new job opportunities
for mechanical engineers as the skills acquired through
earning a degree in mechanical engineering often can
be applied in other engineering specialties.
The Purdue University North Central mechanical engineering
program will prepare graduates in technical competence
and professional skills with an emphasis on regional
business needs. Graduates are best suited for technical
and/or managerial positions in industry and/or government.
Typical entry-level position titles include electrical
engineer, mechanical engineer, manufacturing engineer,
product manager, and quality assurance engineer. Professionals
in this field work in the areas of product and system
design, engineering analysis, automated testing and manufacturing,
quality control and productivity, and computer-aided design.
