Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering that applies principles of physics, mathematics, and materials science to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. These systems can range from small individual components to large machinery and vehicles.

Mechanical engineers play a crucial role in various industries, including automotive, aerospace, energy, manufacturing, robotics, and biomedical fields. They are involved in designing and optimizing products and processes to ensure efficiency, reliability, and safety. Key responsibilities include conducting feasibility studies, performing simulations and tests, creating prototypes, and overseeing production.

The field of mechanical engineering is diverse, covering areas such as thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, mechanics of materials, machine design, control systems, and manufacturing processes. Engineers in this discipline often collaborate with professionals from other fields, such as electrical engineering and computer science, to integrate mechanical systems with electronic and software components.

Arup has always grown entrepreneurially, taking opportunities to work on international projects as a way of growing a global footprint. This organic growth has also provided valuable opportunities for members to learn from other cultures and experience other ways of working, and to be generous in sharing expertise.

In the 1990s, our influential and long-term role in planning and designing the UK’s first high-speed rail line, High Speed 1, was instrumental in supporting the economic growth of south east England and London. At the same time, our work in China grew, thanks to projects such as the Shenzhen Stock Exchange. Later, in the USA, we would contribute to a crucial upgrade to New York City’s public transport system, through our work on the Second Avenue Subway line.
