Students viewing mechanical engineering design equipmentThe objective of mechanical engineering design is to bring together most of the specialty fields for the purpose of creating a useful product/process for society. The design engineer must be knowledgeable in basic sciences and mathematics as well as engineering. The goal of the design process is to generate a number of ideas that will allow for the production of a product or creation of a useful process. To generate these ideas the design engineer must have a strong background in manufacturing, computers, and modern materials. In summary the design engineer of today and tomorrow is a multi-faceted professional dedicated to the demands of society and the environment through the creative process.
