Achievements in mechanical engineering include the development of wind and water turbines, steam engines, and internal combustion engines. 

“Diversity” is the key word when it comes to Mechanical Engineering. There are many fields in which Mechanical engineering plays a role: automated manufacturing, environmental control, transportation, biomedical fields, computer fields, fossil fuel and nuclear power…the list goes on and on. Mechanical Engineers are concerned with imagining and implementing programs and devices that improve our world and our movement in it. A Mechanical Engineering major’s designing endeavors are diverse, from tiny measuring instruments to huge aircraft carriers or power plants. They also are involved with testing, evaluating, distributing and marketing the devices they and their colleagues create.
