4,384 Mechanical Engineer Jobs Nationwide

Mechanical engineers work on the widest range of projects out of all the engineering disciplines. They are involved in research and development as well as building and installation of machines and structures. Although mechanical engineers spend much of their time working in an office environment, many also visit work sites and factory floors to oversee installations and repairs.

Skillset: Complex, number-intensive problem solving is common in this profession, so mathematical skills are considered essential. Listening skills, creativity and an interest in how things work are important traits for engineers, who must respond to problems with carefully crafted solutions on a daily basis. Skills with both computers and people are also necessary in this occupation.

Education: All engineers are required to have a Bachelors of Engineering, which is awarded after completion of a rigorous program that normally takes three to five years to complete. Some positions require a master's degree in mechanical engineering.

Career Path: Students can dramatically improve their attractiveness to mechanical engineering firms by taking part in co-ops and internships, which give valuable on-the-job experience, connections and sometimes pay. To become licensed as a professional engineer, engineers must take the PE exam after a certain number of years in the field.
