Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is a field that requires both a strong academic foundation in essential concepts as well as continued development of professional practice. Universities and academic institutions around the world offer courses in Mechanical Engineering, which focus on the most up-to-date techniques, practices, concepts and equipment in a range of areas relevant to mechanical engineering. Many mechanical engineering courses culminate with a diploma or professional certification, while others offer academic credit toward a Bachelor, Master of PhD program in Mechanical Engineering.

Mechanical engineering courses are offered on a full time or part time basis. This variety enables universities to provide for all kinds of students with a variety of academic needs. Mechanical engineering courses often specialize in one area of the field, requiring students to attend lectures and seminars and often complete projects or lab work to test their understanding of essential concepts.

Since each program is different, it may be useful to use the web form on the information page of a mechanical engineering course that interests you, to contact the university directly and request more information.

Best Course Studies in Mechanical Engineering 2017. Automotive Mechanics Yesterday's automobiles were simple and fun. Backyard muscle car mechanics were plentiful back then, but really well-trained professional technicians with the skills to straighten out those really tough problems have always been scarce. Today's automobiles are still fun, but they aren't simple anymore. And, while backyard mechanics are still around, they are fewer in number, and well-trained technicians are increasingly hard to find. One aftermarket service magazine puts the shortage of competent techs in the United States at more than one million, and as many as 15,000 new positions are opening yearly. Technical Requirements Fundamentals of Automotive Technology Electrical Fundamentals Electrical and Electronic Systems Braking Systems Steering and Suspension Special Topics I and II Motor Vehicle Air Conditioning Drive Train and Axles Engine Repair I and II Automotive Emissions Automotive Engines Advanced Automotive Engines Manual Transmission/Transaxle Automatic Transmission/Transaxle Engine Performance and Diagnostics General Education Requirements Introductory Technical English I Introductory Mathematics I Oral Communication Skills Introductory Computer Skills II Orientation Total Credit Hours - 60 Estimated Salary According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook 2014-2015, median hourly earnings of automotive service technicians and mechanics in 2012 was $17.60. The top 10 percent earned more than $60,070. Dealership technicians are often paid in conjunction with a commission based system that can vary by employer. Job Opportunities According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, job opportunities in this occupation are expected to be very good for persons who complete automotive training programs, and opportunities are expected to increase 9 percent through 2022. Program Features Electronic diagnostic equipment includes Snap-On/Sun's Computerized Dynamic Data Collector and cutting edge handheld scan tools like the OTC Genisys. Late model vehicles and powertrain components challenge students with contemporary training exercises and live work, not only in powertrain repair, but also in electronics systems, fuel injection, and engine performance. PC based automotive information retrieval systems such as All data provide students with comprehensive access to shop manuals on both import and domestic vehicles marketed in the United States from 1982 to the present model year. National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation The instruction, course of study, facilities, and equipment of Lurleen B. Wallace Community College Automotive Program has been evaluated by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and meets the standards of quality for the training of automobile technicians in the following areas: Brakes, Electrical/Electronic Systems, Engine Performance, Suspension and Steering, Automatic Transmission & Transaxle, Engine Repair, Heating & Air Conditioning, and Manual Drivetrain and Axles.
