Hi everyone, I have decided to devote my life to Mechanical engineering research and development after my college times. For this decision, I have to be familiar with the very fundamentals mechanical concepts such as the workings of pulleys, gear, wheel, torque, springs and others in addition to college subjects. Frankly, I cannot even build simple mouse-trap and don't understand the workings and applications of small things used in mouse-trap. Can I become a good Mechanical Engineer without these expertise ? How can I practise to excel in these Mechanical skills and creativity ? What is your comment and opinion? I appreciate it. Thanks you.
