It is the most general of all the industry-based occupations, ranging across every stage of the manufacturing process and including design, draughting, assembly, quality control, plant operation, maintenance and management. Mechanical Engineering owes this generality to the diverse interests of the founding fathers of the Industrial Revolution: Brunel, who built railways and ships; Maudslay, who pioneered precision machines and meteorological instruments; Newcome, who developed the first practical steam engine and mine pumps; and Watt, who invented the condenser and a whole variety of mechanical mechanisms.
