Architectural, engineering, and related services 21%
Research and development in the physical, engineering, and life sciences 6%

Federal government, excluding postal service 5%

The rest are employed in general-purpose machinery manufacturing, automotive parts manufacturing, management of other companies, and testing laboratories.

Most mechanical engineers work full time, with some working as many as 60 hours or more per week.
