It is stated, “Mechanical engineering is at the forefront of developing new technologies for a number of industries including transport, healthcare, construction, and robotics. What an exciting time to be alive and what an exciting time to be a mechanical engineer.” (thecompleteuniversityguide). Mechanical Engineers are people who research and carry out projects to help the society live lives more comfortably and effectively. They develop machines, which most of them are very close to the lives of the people, like gadgets from smartphones and tablets, to big machines like cars and factory machines. Not only that, they even are a part of the development for that newest updates on the iPhone 6S and Samsung Galaxy S7. Though the job of a mechanical engineer isn’t really open publically, the importance of them and the influence that they give to society is very critical. For example, the invention of the television resulted in people being more aware of the big events going around in society, but at the same time, it got people addicted and ruined the lives of families. Though some might argue that mechanical engineers are giving society a very negative influence, the pros outway the cons. Also, the bad that comes out of it mostly has to do with the impulsions and the personal desires of the human kind. The job of mechanical engineering is the ‘frontline-fleet’, fighting for the development of society and the progression of technology in the lives of the people.
