Mechanical Engineer: Expectations vs. Reality Clutch, How does it work ? 2 days ago   21:11

We talk about what we thought mechanical engineering would be like vs what it is actually like. We want to make this video so students have an accurate image of what a Mechanical Engineer actually does.

This guy looks like he hates life, I have one more year left to get my mechanical engineering degree and damn this is depressing...
Athina Deira
Your videos are boring

thanks for making me uncomfortable

Additive Manufacturing engineer here. Your argument is invalid.

Communicating technical aspects as a engineer to a sales guy is like explaining to somebody stupid why they are stupid.
Matthew Tymczyszyn
Let's say for argument's sake that I'm a mathematical masochist, and I want an engineering position that routinely needs me to use higher math. What do I study?

Just the video I so needed when I thought I was odd
Thank you for your truthful video. I just wish people in other professions could do the same.
I don't think this is a realistic picture of engineering AT ALL. Flip, if everybody who watched their video was an aspiring engineer, no one would apply for the degree. It is a VERY broad field, that really DEPENDS on what job you apply for. If you want a job like this guy in the video, good for you, but I think they actually do the opposite of what they intend to do. They should be encouraging people, and as an engineering student I don't feel like this was encouraging at all.

Hands on engineering is a myth, lol.

This is what I have been searching for. It took me about 3 months to find a decent video and I am a junior in college.

If you're in thermal or structures analysis, you do math pretty much every day. I worked in a thermal/fluids group for spacecraft and we often do hand calcs along with FEA/CFD to confirm results.
Raul Rubalcava
Talk to Tony stark I hear he's hiring.
Aidan Dudash
This is just glorified sample bias
Then what would you suggest for a hands on design jobs

Clutch, How does it work ? Mechanical Engineer: Expectations vs. Reality 2 days ago   06:47

Please make our efforts sustainable :

Have you ever wondered what is happening inside a car when you press the clutch pedal? Or why do you need to press the clutch pedal before you shift gears in a manual transmission car? This video gives you logical answers to these questions. At the end of the video, we will also understand the crucial role played by the clutch in an uphill start.
