    Hands on - manual side

    The term "hands-on" seems to fit, but I don't think I've ever seen the phrase "manual side." What is this last phrase intended to convey? DrD

    Energy obtained from a Steam Power

    The term "steam power plant" usually refers today to an electric generating plant driven by a steam turbine supplied by a boiler. DrD

    Theory is important, but it needs to be tied to practice. Practice comes in two forms, but necessary. 1) The first is personal practice. Try designing and constructing things. When they fail, ask yourself why, in terms of the theory? What bit of theory would predict that failure? What additional theory do I need to understand this failure? When they work, ask if the theory can guide you to something that works even better. 2) Look at the work of other engineers, always asking yourself "Why was it done this way? Is there a better way? Does this approach avoid any particular problems." I've been an engineer for many years, but I continue to learn new things. Just a few days ago, I toured a river dam and lock system (the lock allows boats to pass through the dam in both directions). I saw things I've never seen before, and thought a lot about why things were done this way. To be a good engineer, you must never stop learning and thinking. DrD

    Being a mechanical engineer myself I would say that there was nothing which I felt that I couldn't do be it in workshops or classes, the stigma attached to this branch that there is a lot of physical work involved in it , believe me you there is nothing like that. Never be hesitant in discussing your doubts with your classmates and teachers. Try having as much interaction as you can with your classmates. It will surely make you comfortable in class as well as prepare you for the atmosphere of the core companies. And the best part of being in mech is you don't have to go through those cat fights 😛.

    Is Mechanical Engineering Really Good for Girls?

    Michael, you absolutely astound me! It is evident that you need to have a long talk with your girl friend, your wife, your mother, or perhaps your dad, about the way babies are brought into the world. This board is probably not the best place to get into the details of human anatomy/reproductive biology, but there are details you seem to have clearly missed!! DrD
