Mechanical engineering is all about taking science and using it to produce things. It’s about translating theoretical research into practical solutions and applications which are used by society. Mechanical engineers’ discoveries, creations and developments of technology laid the foundations for modern life as we know it. Today, they design, maintain, repair and operate everything we need in our daily lives now, and in the future they will deliver the solutions to sustain and protect human society’s existence.
Consider the mechanical engineering that enables you to enjoy a MARS® Bar. Mars products are made and delivered with the highest quality, at the least cost, with the lowest possible consumption of resources. Once raw materials, including sugar, milk and packaging have been sourced, mechanical engineering kicks in. The inbound supply chain uses shipping, rail and road networks, plus GPS technology – all of which are designed, built and maintained by mechanical engineers.
