Mechanical Engineering deals with power and the design of machines and processes used to generate power and to apply it to useful purposes. These machines and system/process designs may be simple or complex, inexpensive or expensive, luxuries or essentials. Items such as kitchen food mixer, the automobile, heating/air-conditioning systems, nuclear power plants, practical autonomous and teleoperated robotics, and interplanetary space vehicles would not be available today were it not for the mechanical engineer. Important areas in which mechanical engineers work at this time also have to do with the use of solar, wind, and tidal energy and of cogeneration from wastes for domestic and industrial uses.
