  1. Here are some tips for Mechanical Engineers (No site preferences): -Focus on the fundamentals of engineering and practice it (Relate those concepts to real-world examples and try solving it; the problem doesn't have to be Nobel). - It's easier to get lured by fascinating UI in commercial programs and software, and think that you are now capable of solving complex problems. But mind you, running a black box without a bit of idea on what's happening can lead to a disaster. So, dig into fundamentals, read and understand the manuals, understand your problem, figure out the ways to deal with such problems from past literature {"If I have seen further it is by standing on ye shoulders of Giants"-Issac Newton (Copied)}. This is true, for example, most of the time you might be trying it wrong and other's might have already found it and warned. So take the literature review seriously and stand on the shoulders of past researchers and solvers. Think of uncertainties in modeling and try to quantify them. Then use your engineering judgment for failsafe. - Textbooks are always the best friend. Try to read (Basic to advanced) in your field of interest and as many as you can. - Whichever language you prefer will work to solve problems in Mechanical engineering (It does not have to be the trending, C (structured) and C++(object-oriented) will work), the reason why I am saying this is don't waste your time to learn all the languages out there (if you know, it's an asset for sure) if you are a Mechanical Engineer, you are a problem solver for Machines, you are thought to be dealing with basic conservation laws, classical mechanics for most of the part, and quantum mechanics will be an asset for the future, so the computer language should be the second options (Learn only if you have to face such a situation like, in the industry or if the machine you are dealing with needs it; it should not be a big deal). - Try to have fun sometimes...it's easier for a mechanical engineer to get lost in the details of its own vast universe. Dealing with site problems could be different... Cheers!
