Why I Chose to Pursue Mechanical Engineering

I chose to study Mechanical Engineering because; they say it is the mother of all engineering. Be it electrical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, without mechanical engineering all of these branches of engineering are useless. Our daily life is almost impossible to live without components that are made up of mechanical part. The pencil we use is been operated by the help of a simple mechanical design. All of these simple mechanical ideas have either made people rich, countries have busted their economy and life have been impacted and made easy for everyone.

Well my reason for choosing to become a mechanical engineer is to be my own boss in the future. Being my own boss in the sense that, I don’t have to work under any one. I want to be the payer of people’s salaries. An example is, two major car manufacturers we know today, Toyota and Mercedes Benz. Both Mercedes Benz and Toyota are owned by families who decided to be self-employed and the same time made people have a better life. Today Toyota and Mercedes Benz are two of the world’s best car makers. Ideas are born out of the desire to change something in life. That idea has made me to come and study mechanical engineering, so that after I acquire all the necessary knowledge I will know the right direction and purpose for my idea. The avenues open to me after becoming a mechanical engineer are endless.

Another reason why I chose to study mechanical engineering is that Robots have always fascinated me. Especially how they work, the complex movement they have got. And the important thing what will happen when we create fully functional android with neuron based brain which has the capability to think just like human. Another thing is AI or Artificial intelligence, I always wanted to know and how it works. I want to know what they feel about their use just like we human have feeling about the person with whom we are working. And how it will help a person who is not able to communicate properly in public or is mentally disabled.

This is because; I will have a great joy helping to meet the needs of people all over the world. Also it will draw investors to my country, which is one of the reasons I have to choose to study in a developing country. India has been a developing country for years, right now she needs people to think out of the box so that, the step towards becoming a developed country will be realized. Another effect of becoming a mechanical engineer is to be rich, so I can afford anything I want in life. I want to be able to give back to the country and society that have raised me. And especially my parents who have sacrificed so many things in their life to make me a successful person.
