When i did my project in manufacturing engineering investigated a cylinder on a cutting saw used in the workshop saying it needed replacing and had to do it within 20 weeks through the cad drawings for the replacement to be made took measurement in workshop of the cylinder and had to investigate it.
You could do something like a simple leaver grabber like the ones you see the rubbish picking up the litter. talk about the pivots involved and how the project is going to be made how long it will take for the prototype say you have to have a prototype within 10 weeks then you will have to do a presentation saying why this is better for example could say researched other company's and say you can do it cheaper but still make a income of profit. Where you got the parts from company's websites lodged.
hope this gives u an idea & hope it helps :o)
National Guard Vs Air National Guard and a couple other questions?
Sorry, it doesn't work that way.
When you join the Air National Guard or the Air Force Reserves you are going on active duty to Air Force basic training for 9 1/2 weeks. Then, you will go directly to one of the AF technical school bases for 1 month to 12 months to learn your AF job.
You can't be in college at the same time. It won't work.
You are going to have to put off college until the Fall of 2012 if you are serious about joining the Air National Guard or Air Force Reserves.
One doesn't just sign on to the Guard/Reserves and think that nothing is going to happen while you are in college.
If you want to go to AF ROTC you have to take 4 years of AF ROTC at a college or university in Minnesota that offers it. You can't just do 2 years. There are "NO" living conditions for AF ROTC. You are a regular college student and you live where you live. AF ROTC has nothing to do with where you live.
IF you do AF ROTC and get commissioned as a Second Lieutenant you ARE going on Active Duty for 4 years as an AF Officer. You would go to officer orientation at Maxwell AFB, Alabama for 12 weeks. THEN, you move to an officer technical school for a number of months to learn your officer field's job.
Then, you report to an AF base to begin work in your Officer Field. Married or not, we don't care. You will be living in the officer dorms with the others and your wife will wait until you are graduated.
What you hear about "deployments" have no merit - never believe "what you hear."
The President and Department of Defense will deploy those units that they need to assist the active duty forces in combat roles around the world. The AF Reserves and the Air National Guard are two "feet" of a "3" foot TRIAD of our full national defense posture.
With Iraq and Afghanistan winding down there will be less need to deploy Reserve and Guard forces. However, you must watch the World's war posture. Our next engagement will most likely be: Iran and North Korea. These two countries do not seem to want to live in peace with the rest of the world. And, sooner or later, they will make a stupid mistake and attack somebody.
The US has military treaties with most of the free world's countries. Attacking any one of them brings the US military forces into play - no matter how unlikely one might think or "even" think about some country.
That is what "Reserve" forces are for. To augment the active duty forces with the needed skills.
You can count on being "active" for about 2 years or more when your Reserve/Guard units get activated.
You can NOT make deals with the US Air Force. You can not "figure" you will do this or do that for your own "convenience." It is a falsehood to think that "a little service will give me a little boost." We don't care about that. You are either IN or OUT of the service. "Boost" or no boost.
You can not "just serve while you are in school." If you enter the military services you are going to be available for world-wide duty for at least 4 years. And, if you are in college "after you return from active duty for basic training/technical school" and your unit gets activated you are going to LEAVE college and go on active duty.
You can return to college when your unit is release in 18 - 24 months.
So, your BEST bet is this:
Make up your mind and either go to college now - and do AF ROTC for 4 years.
Enlist now and put off college until you finish basic and technical school.
But, remember this: Once you sign on for 4 years - you BELONG to the Air Force.
The NEEDS of the Air Force come before the WANTS of the Individual.
If you can not live with that: then, forget about any kind of military service.

What does a Mechanical Engineer do?
Mechanical engineers research, develop, design, manufacture, and test tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices. They work on power-producing machines such as electric generators, internal combustion engines, and steam and gas turbines. They also develop power-using machines such as refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment, machine tools, material handling systems, elevators and escalators, industrial production equipment, and robots used in manufacturing. Mechanical engineers also design tools that other engineers need for their work. The field of nanotechnology, which involves the creation of high-performance materials and components by integrating atoms and molecules, is introducing entirely new principles to the design process.
Computers assist mechanical engineers by accurately and efficiently performing computations, and by permitting the modeling and simulation of new designs as well as facilitating changes to existing designs. Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) are used for design data processing and for turning the design into a product.
Mechanical engineers work in many industries, and their work varies by industry and function. Some specialize in energy systems; applied mechanics; automotive design; manufacturing; materials; plant engineering and maintenance; pressure vessels and piping; and heating, refrigeration, and air-conditioning systems. Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers may work in production operations in manufacturing or agriculture, maintenance, or technical sales; many are administrators or managers.
Mechanical engineers held about 215,000 jobs in 2002. More than half of the jobs were in manufacturingï¿½mostly in machinery, transportation equipment, computer and electronic products, and fabricated metal products manufacturing industries. Architectural, engineering, and related services, and the Federal Government provided many of the remaining jobs.
Employment of mechanical engineers is projected to grow more slowly than the average for all occupations though 2012. Although overall employment in manufacturing industries where employment of mechanical engineers is concentrateds expected to decrease slightly, employment of mechanical engineers in manufacturing should increase more rapidly as the demand for improved machinery and machine tools grows and as industrial machinery and processes become increasingly complex. Also, emerging technologies in biotechnology, materials science, and nanotechnology will create new job opportunities for mechanical engineers. Additional opportunities for mechanical engineers will arise because a degree in mechanical engineering often can be applied in other engineering specialties. In addition to job openings arising from growth, many openings should result from the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations or leave the labor force.
Earnings [About this section] [More salary/earnings info] [To Top]
Median annual earnings of mechanical engineers were $62,880 in 2002. The middle 50 percent earned between $50,800 and $78,040. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $41,490, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $93,430. Median annual earnings in the industries employing the largest numbers of mechanical engineers in 2002 were:
Federal government $72,500
Architectural, engineering, and related services 65,610
Navigational, measuring, electromedical, and control instruments manufacturing 65,430
Aerospace products and parts manufacturing 65,160
Other general purpose machinery manufacturing 55,850
According to a 2003 salary survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, bachelors degree candidates in mechanical engineering received starting offers averaging $48,585 a year, masters degree candidates had offers averaging $54,565, and Ph.D. candidates were initially offered $69,904.
