Building Complete Products
Let's face it, not having a mechanical engineer on your team can lose you clients. Having an ME on your team can land clients looking for a product that needs to be built from scratch. If your company is delving deep into the IoT. You’re going to need to build your product from the ground up and from start to finish. With a mechanical engineer, they can get you there. Once you have your idea in mind, your ME can get you home. They can design, help rapid prototyping, and develop your product into a tangible object. That is why here at Very, we believe if you are serious about IoT development, mechanical engineering is a necessity.
Serious IoT Development Requires Serious Mechanical Engineers
Truly innovating the IoT industry as we keep advancing in this field is getting tougher and tougher, but there are many ways mechanical engineering and the IoT industry can still innovate. If your company is developing products that are going to be out in the world, you need a serious mechanical engineer, if not a few, that can get the job done. So you may be asking yourself, “What kind of mechanical engineers should I hire?” Well, ME’s with experience in software is a good start. Still any engineer that can bridge the gap between software and mechanical design and is willing to get down and dirty with the way IoT products are developed is a good bet.
So make no mistake, mechanical engineering is not being phased out within the IoT industry. It is here to stay so we can keep innovating, creating, and bringing your ideas to life.
