Mechanical engineers must provide engineering designing and guidance along side other team members to develop better and more advanced ways of production of an object or tool. Also, they must be able to solve complex problems where analysis of a situation and data in-depth evaluation are required in order to meet the requirement of the customer. Mechanical engineers must as well be able to work with other engineers and production personnel not to only develop but also to maintain the manufacturing process. Also, this type of engineer as well as any other kind of engineer must be able to prepare and present technical status reviews to show its customers overall improvement of a give task or project.
Mechanical engineers should be creative, inquisitive, analytical, and detail oriented. They should be able to work as part of a team and communicate well in both writing and orally since mechanical engineers must interact with a broad array of specialists in a wide range of fields inside as well as inside the engineering field. Also, since mechanical engineers may also work on manufacturing and agriculture production they might later become administrators or managers.
