Top 20 Recent Trends in Mechanical Engineering

Looking towards the new era in technology mechanical engineering offers the addition of new subjects and new versions of old subjects. Nanotechnology, Clean technology, and many other fields are being introduced in the scientific and industrial area. The design has made its entry a decade back into the core part of mechanical engineering and got itself manipulated in different forms. Several key emerging technologies fall fundamentally within the domain of mechanical engineering expertise.

Among these technologies are micro- and nanoscale fabrication processes, energy, and the environment. Modern mechanical engineers can navigate virtual design environments and are adept in computing so they play a significant role in the future development of information technology. 
The mechanical engineering field requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. In addition to these core principles, mechanical engineers use tools such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and product life cycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, and others. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production, and operation of machinery. Wikipedia
