Course Title: MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

Course Description

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING AS A COURSE.
The essence of mechanical engineering is because the world today is technology itself and the use of various machines is necessary for mechanical engineering to be studied.
Thus; Mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering with the combination of subjects which include; mathematics, and engineering physics with materials science in analyzing, manufacturing, designing, and the maintenance of mechanical systems which includes the construction of cars, airplanes and more. Mechanical engineering was first invented during the 5th millennium BC. in Mesopotamia and the first device to be launched was the wheel and axle mechanism.Also, 5,000 years ago in the Near East The lever mechanism it was therefore used on a simple balance scale. also, the Archimedes' screw was handedly functional and it could raise water systematically.the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) was formed in the year 1880 in the United States of America.
