Explore about various areas where you can develop project ideas for mechanical systems and products.
Projects involving the design, construction, and programming of robots are always popular in the field of mechanical engineering. For example, building a robot that can navigate through an obstacle course or one that can perform a specific task such as picking and placing objects.
Projects that focus on renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, hydro, or geothermal energy are becoming increasingly important. You could work on designing and building a solar panel, a wind turbine, or a hydroelectric generator
3D printing has become a game-changer in the world of mechanical engineering. You could explore the capabilities of 3D printing by designing and printing functional objects such as gears, prosthetic limbs, or even a working prototype. Lot of opportunities here especially for the creative.
Automotive projects can range from designing and building a go-kart, to developing a more efficient engine, or even building an autonomous vehicle. With the rise of electric vehicles, you could also explore projects related to EV components
Projects related to reducing human work . Simple mechanical systems which are ingenious yet useful . A lot of scope is still untapped. Its just dependent on where we look
Another powerful way of generating ideas is by taking a design. Analyzing it in depth and coming up with ideas to improve its functionality, durability or certain features. Maybe creating a design more portable or lightweight?
