Mechanical Engineer
Mechanical Engineering is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, and materials science principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines. The mechanical engineering field requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. In addition to these core principles, mechanical engineers use tools such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and product life cycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons, and others

Llewellyn Michael Kraus Boelter (August 7, 1898 – July 27, 1966) was an American engineer, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles, and founding Dean of its UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science. In the late 1920s Boelter came into prominence for by his work in the field heat transfer, for which he had investigated heat transfer in the automobile radiator of the tubular type. F. W. Dittus and Boelter proposed "a convective heat transfer correlation for turbulent flows," which became known as the Dittus-Boelter equation
