Mechanical engineers are some of the most diverse, talented workers in any production facility.  They can work at any stage of the process and may deal with projects large and small.  Typically, a mechanical engineer in an energy or advanced manufacturing facility oversees the motors and machines to ensure that the process is running efficiently.  They then may make adjustments or suggestions to increase productivity and profits.

Because they are so versatile, the best mechanical engineers are creative and analytical, with an ability to quickly see and solve problems.  They work in an exciting, hands-on environment where no two days of work are the same, so they should welcome breaking out of the routine.

Employers in Mississippi are currently starting the average mechanical engineer at around $80,000 a year plus benefits.  As an employee stays with the company and showcases a strong work ethic, that salary can easily grow to well over six figures by the time he or she retires.

As with almost all engineering positions, Mississippi employers require a four-year degree in engineering; some prefer certification by a professional organization, as well.  To find a mechanical engineering training program near you, click here.
