From the first wheel to a helicopter hovering above the surface of Mars, mechanical engineering pushes boundaries and allows humankind to reach beyond all previous limits. Mechanical engineers see ‘impossible’ as a challenge, not a barrier, and are a key reason we’ve walked on the Moon and visited the deepest ocean trench, while improving lives through innovations like artificial heart, robotic surgery, self-healing materials, and clean energy.
