A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Mechanical Engineering Collection - The "profession in which knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences is applied to develop ways to utilize the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind." While scientists explore basic truths, engineers work toward completing specific projects by applying their knowledge of how things work. Any definition of mechanical engineering is subject to change as previously unimagined fields materialize. Ancient engineering conjures up images of canals, aqueducts, lighthouses, bridges, Roman roads, tunnels, viaducts, the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal, and the pyramids, and we wonder how these tasks could ever have been completed. The answer is mechanical engineering. There is an element of the inventor in every mechanical engineer as he manipulates methods of accomplishing projects. The final product many times is an eye-opener as normal materials and methods are assembled in a novel manner. Examples of mechanical engineering can be seen in the pyramids and the other "Wonders of the World," and works of Archimedes, de Vinci and Galileo. The field gained status when the Royal Society in London was founded in 1600 to promote the practical application of physical and mathematical laws. In 1802 the U.S. Military Academy was the first U.S. institution to offer courses in engineering. The bottom line is that mechanical engineers make reality out of visions.
