Hi friends. I am a Mechanical Engineer going to attend an interview for the post of a research assistant for my post-graduation. I do not know what field am i going to do research in. It could be design,thermal or manufacturing. Though I have more knowledge and interest in design. I want to know, in general, what skills should a research assistant needs? I have sound theoretical knowledge of Mechanical Engineering and I have built some machines. Is this enough? Thank you in Advance.
