Mechanical Engineer

Mechanical engineers design, build, and repair machines. Engineer Julia Lintern uses her degrees in mechanical engineering and applied math in her work at car and plane companies and as a fashion designer.  Mechanical Engineer Rachel Rothman and her team at Good Housekeeping test products from race cars to televisions to Halloween costumes, checking whether each one is safe and works the way it should. Mechanical Engineer Yamilée Toussaint, the Founder and CEO of STEM From Dance, studied mechanical engineering at MIT and helped design stents to improve blood flow for people with clogged arteries. And Mechanical Engineer Alex Fowler teaches engineering at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. In his research, he focuses on heat transfer, bioengineering, and computational methods to explore ways to preserve cells, cook meat efficiently, and advance technology in other ways.
