Mechanical design engineers create, develop and test products such as machines, tools and sensors. They solve problems by applying the principles of physics, chemistry and mechanics to the real world. They also collect data on prototype performance and supervise the manufacturing process for their designs.
To be adequately prepared for the demands of their profession, mechanical design engineers must complete a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. If you would like your candidates to have more experience with any specific disciplines within the field, be sure to say so in your mechanical design engineer job description.Conceptualize and design equipment, machinery and industrial setups and systems
