Relations with Other Fields

Relations with Other Fields

Because of the wide range of field, mechanical engineering also deals with other branches of science, especially engineering. The following are some examples of fields that deal with mechanical engineering.

  • Civil Engineering: structural strength / construction and fluid mechanics. The difference in the field of Mechanical Engineering is that the structure discussed is not only static, but also dynamic. In fluid mechanics in Civil Engineering it generally focuses on open channels, while in Mechanical Engineering, this is not only open channels but also close channels.
  • Architecture: space acoustics, air conditioning systems
  • Chemical Engineering: process industrial equipment such as pumps, compressors, turbines, heat exchangers. In Chemical Engineering, the process is discussed, while the mechanical engineering person is in charge of designing the equipment.
  • Industrial Engineering: manufacturing
  • Informatics Engineering: programming for computing (calculation) and for computer-based mechanical control systems
  • Electrical Engineering: the field of mechatronics and automation systems in industry
  • General Medicine: designing and making replacement material for body parts, such as bones and muscles.
  • Dentistry: interrelated in the material field, for example those used as dental fillings, braces and dentures.
