      Hi Elvis,

      A mechanical engineer is mainly involved in the design, development and manufacture engines, ships, air-conditioning and refrigeration systems, building services and manufacturing processes.The discipline involves the application of science for the analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems.
