Mechanical Engineer Information
August 28th, 2017

Mechanical engineers design, develop and oversee the manufacture of a wide range of products, from simple batteries to highly complex medical devices. They may work in an office or a work site in industries that focus on manufacturing various types of machinery, aerospace products and parts, or electronic and computer products. Depending on the type of product they are in charge of manufacturing, their tasks may involve designing and testing prototypes, developing devices to resolve specific problems, analyzing test results and making the necessary changes to their designs.
A bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering or mechanical engineering technology is the minimum education required to become a mechanical engineer. An internship will help you gain the practical skills required to work in this role. While a license may not be required for entry level jobs, it can prove valuable for advancement opportunities and higher salaries. Mechanical engineers must have good hand-eye coordination, and strong mechanical, analytical, critical thinking and organizational skills.
The questions that are typically asked at mechanical engineer interviews aim at determining whether or not you have the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to work in this particular position. Be prepared to answer highly technical questions to demonstrate your expertise and convince the interviewers that you are the best candidate for the job. Be sure to go to Mock Questions and take a look at the questions listed there before you go for the interview. These are questions that are commonly asked at mechanical engineer interviews and reading through them will help you to answer all interview questions more confidently.
