The Engineering Industry

Mechanical engineers make, fit and repair parts for machines and related equipment used on boats, farms, sawmills and mining sites, as well as in factories and oil refineries.


Heavy fabrication engineers, for example, use thick plates, pipes and shaped pieces (sections) of metal to make and repair things such as the framework of buildings, ships hulls, bridges, boilers, storage tanks and cranes.
