One of the broadest fields in engineering is mechanical engineering. A wide variety of products across a variety of areas are manufactured in collaboration with mechanical engineers.
From batteries to medical devices, from elevators to air-conditioning, mechanical engineers are important for a myriad of fields. Some experts in this field can further specialize in robotic engineering, heating/cooling systems and auto research engineering.
The most common employers for mechanical engineers include architectural and engineering companies, manufacturing of machines, transportation equipment, computer and electronics and scientific research.
The collaboration between mechanical engineer with physicians, chemists, physicists, botanists and others have made it possible to implement significant changes in so many areas in society.
Particularly in medical science and biology, the contribution of engineering has led to better treatments and decreased morbidity and mortality. The future of the combination between mechanical engineering and healthcare looks very promising with the increasing knowledge on computer science and nanotechnologies.
The main focus of mechanical engineering are power-producing machines. These versatile professionals can work in the production and development of gas turbines, steam turbines, refrigeration and air-conditioning structures, generators, combustion engines, elevators, escalators and automated machines and many others.
Computer science is also a crucial part of the profession, with specific software available for data analysis, tests and simulation and integration of different systems.
Mechanical engineers can work with:
- Problem solving regarding thermal and mechanical machines and devices, investigation of failures
- Design, production and development of machines and different systems, often through computer-based systems
- Investigation of new devices and product prototypes
- Management of manufacturing processes
Analytical skills and creative design are part of everyday problem-solving for these experts.
In Medicine, the application of mechanical engineering principles has led to the evolution of healthcare. Innovations related to x-ray machines, dialysis machines, pharmacokinetics, biomechanics, computational fluid dynamics, nanotechnology in cancer treatment and drug delivery have revolutionized patient care.
These professionals can work on several types of projects across many industries. Their problem-solving capacities can be very useful. Many also possess experience in the computational design and simulation fields, which is an extra advantage as these software tools optimizes workflow and reduces cost of the process, from conceptualization to final production.
Basically, these field of engineering works on all aspects of mechanical systems, from small and simple to gigantic and complex, including design, analysis and testing, production, operation and quality control, as well as maintenance.
Besides, the conversion of thermal energy is another major focus areas for mechanical engineers.
A freelance mechanical engineer usually has a great understanding of computer science, mathematics, electricity, fuels, physics, and structures in the context of economic, social and environmental factors.
The cost to hire a mechanical engineer starts at 40 USD per hour of consultancy. If you intend to work on a complex and time-consuming project, you might consider offering a fixed rate for the entire project, as it might be more cost-effective.
The possibility of working with top class freelance engineers decreases drastically the costs for the consultancy, as they charge much less than consultancy agencies.
Do you need to find an excellent engineer to work on your project? This is easily solved through a good job post, which should include the information listed below:
- Project description or scope of work: give the freelancer a clear idea on your project, your goals and your expectations in terms of what must be delivered.
- Duration of the project: state by when you need to finish the project.
- By when you need to hire: how much time do you have until the project starts.
- Budget: decide if you want to pay per hour of consultancy or per project.
- Skills required: describe what you expect from the freelancer in terms of previous experience and qualifications.
In today’s society, the skills of a mechanical engineer are extremely valuable, as most things around have been at least partly related to the work mechanical engineers.
