Day of the engineer-mechanic

88
October 30 in Russia traditionally celebrate their professional holiday specialists of engineering and technical specialties of various industries - Day of the mechanical engineer. A mechanical engineer is an employee who has a higher technical education in the field of designing, designing and operating various technological equipment. The specialists of this profession today are subject to various and rather high requirements.


Modern reality shows that the relevance of this profession is not waning. And how could it be otherwise in the era of technical progress? Without mechanical engineers, the continuous process of the technical evolution of humanity will stop. Today, a mechanical engineer is one of the most sought-after and versatile specialties among engineers.

In Russia, a country in which Leskov Lefty is one of the national heroes, this profession enjoys special respect and love. It is customary to count this holiday since 1854, when in Russian navy a corps of mechanical engineers was created. Since then, the prestige of the profession has not diminished in the least; a large number of Russian universities are still preparing mechanical engineers.

Today, an engineer should think not only about how to develop a new device or mechanism, but also about how people will use this device later, what kind of society’s reaction can be caused by the emergence of a technological innovation. At the same time, we live in a time when the technology around us is constantly improving, every day there is a huge amount of new gadgets that make our lives much more comfortable and diverse - and all this has long been not surprising to us. What is worth only cellular communication, which in its time made a real revolution in society, forever redrawing the daily lives of people. But today we perceive it as something very ordinary.

Day of the engineer-mechanic

In many ways, the activities of engineers depend on the needs of the society in which he lives. A good mechanical engineer must ensure that his product in modern society and the market is provided with a worthy place, and it brings the maximum benefit to people.

Today we can say that this is quite an old profession, which originated in ancient Greece. The first mechanical engineer in human stories can rightly be called Archimedes. He can also be considered the first theoretical mechanic in the world. That Archimedes was the author of a large number of inventions, which laid the foundation of modern mechanics. He was born in Syracuse in Sicily, which at that time was a colony of Greece. During the 2 Punic War, Archimedes was able to organize effective engineering defense of Syracuse with the help of his inventions. The genius of Archimedes aroused very great admiration even among the enemies - the Romans, so when they captured the city, Archimedes even wanted to save life, but fate decreed otherwise: Archimedes was killed by one of the Roman soldiers who simply did not recognize him.

In our country, getting an engineering education has become possible since the 1701 year. That year a school of navigational and mathematical sciences was opened in Moscow. If we talk about the first engineering school in Russia, it opened its doors to students in 1712 year. The first mechanical engineers were graduates of the current Naval Technical School located in Kronstadt. Nowadays, specialists in this profession are trained by a large number of Russian universities, including MSTU. Bauman, IISS, MSSU and many others.


Mechanical engineers gave the world a lot of things without which we simply can’t imagine our life: a car, a TV, a telephone, a microwave, and much more. It is for this reason that the work of the people of this profession has always been very highly valued. At the same time, it is quite easy for them to find a job - thanks to the great demand for highly qualified technical specialists in modern production.

Today, mechanical engineers are in demand everywhere. They work in many branches of modern industry: mechanical engineering, metalworking, design, they are necessary in all fleet workshops and on ships. This specialty is inherently very universal, so its representatives can easily work in a wide variety of industries, even in the space field. Their tasks are design, construction and operation of various technical equipment and mechanisms. They have very high professional requirements, and the specialty itself requires enormous intellectual expenditures from the person.

Professionally important qualities of any qualified mechanical engineer can be called a developed memory and attention, organizational skills, constructive and logical thinking, responsibility. It is worth noting that these qualities can not be learned in any university. Choosing this profession as his life path, a person should understand that he will reach heights only by his own work and self-improvement.


Often when choosing a profession, young people are guided by one or another factors of its prestige, as well as whether it will be in demand in the future not only today, but a year later, after 10 years, after 20 years. Today, the stable development trend of industrial enterprises has led to an acute need for employees of engineering and technical specialties. This means that the profession is in demand by the market. Thanks to mechanical engineers, the enterprises receive modern and high-tech equipment, and the customer receives high-quality civilian and military products.

Mechanical engineers form the technological space surrounding a person, literally cultivate new high technologies. The history of mankind knows a large number of examples of the creativity of engineers who have changed our lives. For example, in August 1908 of the year American industrialist and engineer Henry Ford introduced the in-line production of cars on an assembly line. In May, the “Russian Knight” of the Sikorsky engineer’s design took to the sky 1913, and in October, American engineer Percy Spencer received a patent for a microwave oven, which no kitchen can do without today, in October 1945. And there are a huge number of such examples from the history.

          How, I remember, there were such. You forgot to turn on the Machine Details, but it was an epoch-making student. It’s only a pity that the contents are quite forgotten.
          Today, mechanical engineers are in demand everywhere.
          But there were problems with this, well, God forbid, so as not to happen again. It was not from a good life that I had to retrain, I became a programmer, he sees Bill Gates, not bad, but it’s a pity that I had to leave the culman.
          For former colleagues - congratulations and a wish for demand for the rest of my life.

Well, anyway, with a holiday, and good luck to everyone who has gone through the harsh but glorious path from the tracing point through sopromat and TMM to DM, and further on specialization. drinks

      Happy holiday, dear Denis. Let me give you a few phrases? As I understand from your statements, you worked in the field of agricultural units. Your attitude to that work (judging by your posts) was mildly said CRUGE !!!!. There is such an office -LIDELSELMASH, do you happen to come from there? I personally have a law degree, but I (it happened) sell and remake equipment for the same farmer (dear colleagues, whoever has something to share, write to the PM) meet, probably you Denis initially chose not his own path -You probably better to be a manager to be in GZZPROM?

    Gentlemen, mechanical engineers. Happy holiday. Special greetings to those who passed the school of the Kiev Polytechnic, where on admission the group was 24 people, and upon graduation often no more than 10. A bunch of coursework and A1 formats are blacker than white pencils. And then you come to the pro viewer, and he squinting and says: - Well, my friend, everything is wonderful, just move me all this to the right by 20 mm .... Term is 1 day. The time has gone. In the last courses, the exam was taken almost sitting on the lap of the teacher. To tear off is not real, and the conversation after scribbling puts everything in its place. If the formula is displayed a bit incorrectly, then sometimes it’s someone’s life. And all those. the rules are written in blood. Therefore, a score of 4 points is not a channel often. It just needs to be 5, because this teacher is known there somewhere else ... and YOU- This is either his personal pride or personal shame.

    I could never understand the heavy tears of those who studied in narkhoz .... laughing

    Well, well, happy holiday, dear colleagues! A bright future will come and we, the mechanical engineers of the Navy will be appreciated. The main thing is to wait! And to plant more and more new holidays, otherwise there are less and less reasons to drink :))
    I’m reporting at the same time, my friends, I’m looking for a mechanical engineer for the position of leading ship repair engineer in Severomorsk. Salary with a full polar and length of service in the Armed Forces - about 25 ty.! While I did not find those who wanted to rake such money (!) ... But I'm waiting!

    Unfortunately, management appreciates traders more. Apparently, because they carry live money in their beaks, and they have to spend money on our developments. And they understand that without our work and the tradesmen will not work, but they can’t step over themselves. Apparently, they themselves are traders in their hearts.

    All mechanics WITH A HOLIDAY! drinks With all my heart, I myself am a mechanic! And if it were not for the power of traders (all kinds of managers and marketers) hucksters are shorter, then we would have long lived in the future! fellow Engineering is an art, and an engineer is an idealist! Always striving for the best, perfect. Only many undertakings are hindered by managers (hucksters), because perfection is not important for them - it is not profitable! For them, the main consumer goods, a penny in production, and sold for considerable rubles! No. And if you produce decent products, then only in limited quantities and sell for an astronomical price! I live in the world of cars and I know that to provide decent and comfortable, and most importantly, inexpensive (actually inexpensive!) Cars, today modern industry can easily and without loss! yes That's just for traders it is not profitable - where to get inadequate superprofits? Due to which to replenish the billions of billions of oligarchs and all sorts of parasites (shareholders). Flight of thought and aspiration to the perfect engineer, far ahead of the medieval-bazaar thinking of traders (managers). And here confrontation is born! angry SO DRINK SAME for engineers to win this confrontation more often !!! drinks With deep respect to all ENGINEERS and MECHANICS and to all our hard work - DIMANMEHANIK hi

    "Mechanical engineers form the technological space surrounding a person, literally cultivate new high technologies."
    It is a pity that the profession of mechanical engineer in our time has become less prestigious. This is not only the fault of the government-state, but also the fat "masters of life" who managed to put the profession of a manager much higher and highly paid than the profession of a mechanical engineer. I hope that this situation will nevertheless change - our country faces a choice - either to remain an appendix of the world economy, or thanks to design engineers (not only mechanics) Russia will be able to take its rightful place in world technologies and structures.
    Happy holiday to you, current mechanical engineers! Happy holiday to you, young ascetics, going to study at polytechnic universities! Good health to you !!!

    With pleasure I congratulate fellow mechanics! At EVAKU he worked at the Department of Physics. But how we were friends with the Department of Sopromat and Applied Mechanics! The head of the department Dremin V.F. is one of the brightest people I met in my life. It’s a pity he’s dead. Under his influence, and according to his excellent manuals, I secretly learned to solve problems with compromise. He kicks out the cadets (he was a very principled person) —they are coming to me. Well, I immediately send them to the store for a fee ... Then the same fee in the laboratory of mechanical tests was sentenced together ... Then he already saw through me ... But he didn’t refuse to use the fee ...

    All a happy holiday.
    Any engineer, especially a constructor or designer, does not deal with abstract and fictional concepts, but with concrete and real things. For engineers, the logic is more developed than for today's science fiction leaders requiring something according to their wishes, and the engineer’s wisdom is to land the leader or owner on the earth from their space heights and at the same time give him a gentle hint who is a specialist and who only speaks the language knows how and distributes money.
    By the way, a mechanical engineer can work in almost all areas and not only on machines, but the opposite is already unlikely. Even Zadornov seems to be an aircraft engineer. And indeed there are doctors, philosophers, historians from ours, from Soviet engineers. In general, higher technical education is only beneficial.

      You are certainly right. It’s only a shame that landing-proving work takes away the lion's share of productive time. And not the fact that she will succeed. Well, by definition, a former huckster-leader cannot understand the techie. Unless, if he himself once started with engineering, then there is a chance.

    Regarding the Soviet engineer who knows how to do everything, yes I support. In any case, it will be suitable in a constructive and conscious manner and will not be taken on adventures. Overseas narrow specialists cannot be compared with our wide profile, whose horizons are greater and therefore the reasoning (as Zadornov says) is higher.
    We always want to improve or change something more while in the West strictly according to technology and neither. This is both plus and minus, but still moving forward and developing leagues would not have beaten our hands and did not require stopping.
    But there are also such bosses who only give ideas and throw themselves away who consider themselves to be the best generators of ideas in society and sometimes it comes to the point that they say, "Let's stop and do at least something that would work, and then let's go further." And all these grief generators are not enough and they want everything at once, and the main thing is that it works better than everyone else and which is less than that of the Chinese, but with quality as in the West.
