Mechanical engineering is characterised by the field's involvement in structures, motion and transfer of energy. Mechanical engineers are responsible for the design, development, production and marketing of, for example, machines and machine elements, vehicles, aeroplanes, vessels, missiles, cooling systems, cooling towers and engines. They also organize and manage industrial installations and process plants and therefore play a crucial role in almost all engineering projects to ensure that resources are used efficiently.
