Mechanical Engineering deals with power and the machinery used to convert power to useful work.
The mechanical engineering technician is a practically-oriented member of the engineering team who applies existing technology to the solution of engineering problems and designs machines and processes that generate and apply power to useful purposes. For example, a mechanical engineering technician may assist in the design of a power plant, testing of a space shuttle, manufacturing of a nuclear submarine or building of an aircraft carrier.
