Man has been making and improving machines of wood and fibre for millennia: metal machinery is still in its clumsy infancy. The simplicity of the sailing-craft and the violin is the simplicity of perfection.
Mechanical Engineering is an old field. Its name derives from the Latin machina, which means invention or trick. The first machines such as the wheel and the needle with an eye date back to the stone age, but the term engine, adapted from the Latin ingenium, natural ability, had by the time of the late Roman Empire become associated with invention, and eventually, with a skilled machine – the engine. The sense of magic prevailed in engineering for much of the pre-industrial age.
Today, Mechanical Engineering denotes a broad field that has to do with the generation and transmission of mechanical energy. Since this motive energy is often derived from heat, much of the work of mechanical engineers involves thermal energy. Similarly, since these processes need to be housed and the energy transmitted, mechanical engineering is also concerned with the structures in which such devices are housed, and with how they work and fail – mechanics, which is closely related with the process of deciding how to put these devices together – the act of design. Finally, it is necessary to evolve processes, by which these devices are to be constructed, which leads to the science of manufacturing. In addition to these tasks, the trend towards greater quality has seen a gradual move towards integration with sensors and automation, leading to the modern science of robotics.
No doubt Mechanical Engineering is known as the evergreen branch of engineering.
