Mechanical engineers generally work in offices. They may occasionally visit worksites where a problem or piece of equipment needs their personal attention. Mechanical engineers work mostly in engineering services, research and development, and manufacturing.
Are Automotive Engineers in demand?
Automotive Engineer Job Growth. Automotive engineers also known as mechanical engineers, is projected to grow 5 percent to 2022. This is a little slower than the average for most occupations.
