Day in the Life
There is no typical day for most mechanical engineers. Engineering projects are multi-disciplinary organizational efforts often involving scores of people inside and outside the company. Project life cycles call for different skills and people at different times. The issues and challenges start-off numerous and evolve throughout the project. It is difficult to characterize a typical day under these circumstances. Laced within and among other activities is a great deal of communication - on the phone, via e-mail, in meetings, teleconferences, memos, and reports. No engineer works alone. Engineering is a team sport.
Some projects will turn over in a week, some in three months or a year, and projects may run concurrently. Workload can change as a project advances or encounters obstacles. Diversity and challenge are among the things that mechanical engineers like about their work.

An important branch of engineering is mechanical engineering, involving the design, construction and machinery. The mechanical engineer's work has become more and more varied, because it covers a wider range of industries & it depends on engineers to grasp the latest development technology, computer, IT and other characteristics to make them better equipped to analyze, summarize, and research capabilities.
