The Importance Of Mechanical Engineering And My Successes In This Field
It might sound weird, but I don’t mind having my hands full of grease and lube. To some people, even the idea of it might be reluctant, but I believe it’s essential to make gears spin and engage within each other. Similarly, I believe Mechanical Engineering is the base of the community where we live as it helps us engage with our surroundings more smoothly.
My passion for the subject was born thanks to the TV show “MythBusters”, a program where five engineers attempt to debunk urban legends and myths everyone takes to be true. Thanks to their mechanical knowledge, research, and ingenuity they manage to contradict popular beliefs. My passion then developed due to the fictional character of Tony Stark, a mechanical Engineer who developed and built himself a smart mechanical armour and soon denoted himself, iron Man. In both cases, audacity and curiosity are key and I believe that is what you need to be able to design and build some insane mechanical projects.
Nothing is better than the smell of petrol, the sound of an engine rumbling and the sensation of a perfect change in gear using the manual transmission. But what’s better is the undeniable satisfaction when you design a project and it gets “Alive”, ready to be somehow useful to the community, providing another gear to my first analogy.
The experience I have acquired studying Maths, Physics and Further maths as my A-levels has taught me so far various skills, and theoretical knowledge I believe would be immensely useful while studying this course at University. The most fascinating yet challenging subject for me is Physics as it requires a large amount of independent research and devotion to the subject. I enjoyed the kinematics section as it just triggered me how simple laws and not too complicated formulas, all derived by one and the whole concept of movement could describe and predict the motion. Further maths, on the other hand, is just maths applied to the real world and it has helped me organising and scheduling events thanks to the discrete section. Exploring each topic in all my subjects, scrupulously and diligently, made we wonder different ways how to approach problems and solve them, making me extremely curious and ambitious, seeking for the challenge of being independent.
The opportunity to do work experience in a family friend garage/car sale gave me a wider knowledge of the working environment, both financial and practical sides. I had the opportunity to observe workers trying to repair cars and then help them too disabling and mounting back engines. Every time I came back home from the workplace with two things hard to remove: dirt from my clothes and an enthusiastic smile, full of amazement, from my face.
By taking part of NCS during the summer of 2019, and winning an award for the “physicist of the year” in year 11, improved drastically my organisation, communication and leadership skills as I had to listen and discuss various topics wit specialist in the field. Furthermore, by practising team sports such as football or more individual ones such as swimming and Judo boosted both my ability to work on a team and self-management.
In my free time, I love to cruise around with my longboard, read books and listen to a discussion on TV programs as the curiosity of knowing and being able to express it always pushes and guide me to go forward. By doing some researches and also thanks to electronic I have done for my GCSEs I managed to build and install an electric motor on my longboard. Among my friend I am the one, they are coming to when they need any repairs on bicycles and scooters.
I believe the course of mechanical engineering will bring me in new parts of the world, therefore I believe learning new languages, besides giving you an elastic mind thinking from language to another one about the same problem, also gives you a better opportunity in life. English isn’t my first language as I have studied most of my life so far in Italy, but I love to think in different languages, allowing me to approach a situation in different ways.
Day by day, mechanical engineering develops, and so it’s the surrounding with it. Engineers working in this field have to make sure everything works smoother and in a safe way; this by being the grease between the gears that spin our world.
INTRODUCTION As curiosity leads to discovery, innovation continues to grow and develop to serve its purpose. For centuries, humans find a way to make their lives easier and try to alleviate the problems presented to them. Along the way, humans were able to integrate engineering principles to the field of medicine and thus creating a new concept called Bioengineering. According to University of California Berkeley, the field of Bioengineering utilizes Engineering principles and analysis in application to the biological systems...
It is very important to choose a career that you enjoyed. Engineering field gives satisfaction. There are a variety of career in engineering field like electronical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, biomedical, computer engineering and etc. Engineers face many challenging problems face to face. This field improving your brain continually and helps to thing logically to solve the problems. These skills are help engineers in their career and their daily life. Engineers can choose good projects. That will help in...
There has been a lot of advancement in the world today since the days of the early men. Man, in his curious nature, engaged himself with studying his environment, taking notes of his observations, and figuring out efficient ways to make life better and resourceful. All of these studies and their application is tied to what we know today as science and technology. The two of them work hand in hand, and have very close meaning, but there are some...
To tackle this topic, we first must understand what the term Science and Technology means and in what relation is it with the existential question proposed. The obvious meaning is that this topic deals with both science and technology and their interactions. And of course, since science and technology are major parts of near past and present human life, it is evident that they have some impact on our way of thinking and our lives in general. However, this topic...
The career I chose to research was mechanical engineering one of the many fields that engineers can choose from. I chose this career because it matched my personality assessment done by Achieve Works. Mechanical engineering can range from designing and building big industrial machines to the creation of Tesla electric cars. A few of the responsibilities that would come with this career are to analyze the machines for possible flaws in its design as well as redesigning the machine with...
My interest in mechanical engineering was instigated through my curiosity of how vehicles and machinery work. Studying maths and physics has strengthened my analytical and problem-solving skills. Modelling in mechanics has helped me gain a greater understanding of movement and energy. Additionally, through my geography studies my awareness of environmental problems has increased which must be considered in engineering nowadays. For example, the fastest eroding coastline is on the North-East riding of Yorkshire where the coast on average recedes two...
Due to the environment of today’s society, the relationship between science and technology has become bigger every day. Technology helps science to discover more information and knowledge. Science and technology mend together but serve completely different purposes throughout the world. Science has a goal to answer questions and increase knowledge and the goal of technology is to find solutions to the more practical problems in the world. Technology has helped science to discover new information that would have never been...
On the 11th of March, 2020 the World Health Organization or WHO announced the declaration of COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic. Living in this current situation that demands beyond our total human capacity in terms of health care responses need to have more attention and focus for the shared common good of all. With that, we should consider investing and venture more in the continuous sprouting of new developments on Science and Technology. As the country, the Philippines, is now...
According to Teller, Edward, “the science of today is the technology of tomorrow”, which empowers people to be creative and productive. It lets people learn things they didn’t think they could learn, in short, it is all about potential. This is where the change will depend, if you think of the future, you want it to be better than the past. They can translate it into new products which can be the main instrument of economic development and growth of...
