TOP Universities for Mechanical, Aeronautical and Industrial Engineering in USA 2021 - QS World University Rankings

One of the most popular professions in the United States is an engineer. American industry is developing rapidly, constantly in need of engineering workers. Even young professionals with engineering degrees in America receive consistently high salaries.

Engineering specialties can be universal, required in different industries, and special (in a specific industry).

The specialty "Mechanical Engineering", mechanical engineer, is required in any production. The object of study and work here is mechanical equipment, a mechanical engineer deals with it:

  • Design
  • Testing
  • Operation
  • Repair

Various kinds of mechanical equipment work in enterprises from the food industry to space complexes, therefore, obtaining a specialty "Mechanical engineer" will open up many opportunities.

Manufacturing (industrial) engineering is also considered universal. Such specialists are needed in all areas of production: professionals in this area are involved in the planning and management of industrial integrated systems.

Production is a complex system, the successful operation of which is possible only if all its components work well: technology, people, technological processes, energy, resources and much more.

A production engineer is not only a technical profession: it requires knowledge of finance, information from the social sciences, and computer science. Manufacturing engineers have narrower specializations:

  • Systems engineering
  • Operations research
  • Engineering management
  • Ergonomics
  • Financial engineering and others.

The aeronautical engineering profession is applied in a narrower field, but the aeronautical industry is usually represented by large complexes, which constantly have a need for new personnel.

The task of an aeronautical engineer:

  • Aircraft and aircraft equipment design
  • Its production
  • Its exploitation.

Engineering personnel are in demand in all countries with a developed industry. The quality of engineering education in the United States is the best in the world, an engineering degree from an American university will take its rightful place in any industrial complex.
