I've been told I would be a good Mechanical Engineer because I like hands on work and am good at it. And I have a decent understanding of physics and they somewhat interest me. I like to build and modify things. I like to solve problems and I'm pretty good at it. (At least I think so) I'm 17 yrs old and I'm just curious if you guys think those are some good mechanical engineer characteristics? And what does an average mechanical engineer do on a daily basis?
