Mechanical College

Dedicated to Mechanical Engineering and its practitioners.

What is Mechanical Engineering?

Mechanical Engineering – systems and sectors

Mechanical Engineering is concerned with the design, development, research, evaluation, manufacture, installation, testing, operation, maintenance and management of:

  • machines
  • mechanical and mechatronic systems
  • automated systems and robotic devices
  • heat transfer processes
  • thermodynamic and combustion systems
  • fluid and thermal energy systems
  • materials and materials handling systems
  • manufacturing equipment and process plants.

Mechanical Engineering is applied across a broad range of industry sectors including mining, minerals processing, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, oil and gas, automotive, aviation, aerospace, bulk handling, communications, health, building; electrical power generation and distribution, water and waste, natural gas distribution, road transport, rail transport, shipping, ship building, defence, agriculture, forestry, fishing and food processing.

About the Mechanical College

The Mechanical College aims to be the peak representative body for Mechanical Engineering in Australia. It will do this by:

  • Attracting eligible engineers as members and making sure their capabilities are recognised.
  • Providing a framework of support services to help members develop world best practice skills, knowledge and attitudes in Mechanical Engineering.
