Mechanical Engineering

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

Mechanical engineering is the manufacturing of products that move. It encompasses the entire production process, from drafting an idea for an item, to understanding the mechanics necessary to make the item work, to the production of the completed item, to incorporating that item into larger systems.

An African educational adventure can be exciting since the continent's rich traditional heritage is so vital to the culture. Africans legendary hospitality is welcoming to strangers and its multiethnic cities so exciting with its African music, dance and arts, both traditional and modern, constitute whole other worlds of application and delight; and there is a couple of esthetic experiences wherever you go to compare and contrast with the color, swirl, smell, and sounds of an African market.
