Mechanical Engineering

Leonardo | future mechanical engineer

I am finding that I am the kind of person who likes to build things. From the small spinning and whirling gizmos to the largest designs and buildings. I like knowing how things work. These two aspects combined with researching books and videos leads to one profession, Mechanical Engineering.

This profession seems to have just about everything I could ever want in a job, it just fits me perfectly. This branch of engineering along with most require you to know and be good with math. From general mechanics, to thermodynamics, and all sorts of mechanical devices. Another reason and to be honest my personal favorite reason to go into mechanical engineering are robots. All of my life I have been intrigued with machines of electronics and robots. From the most basic to the most complex and advanced robotics. I have always been and will always be fascinated. The final reason of why I am so interested in mechanical engineering is because of the fact that my dad is an engineer. Because of this I am getting lots of knowledge and in all sort of different types of engineering. For me there are really to many reasons to go into engineering but from the time I was only a few years old until now one thing is for sure, I'm going to be a Mechanical Engineer.
