Simply put, an engineer is a person who brings to life what the scientists have researched and conceptualized. Using mathematical and scientific formulas, engineers figure out how things work and find practical uses for scientific discoveries. They recommend and specify materials and processes, supervise manufacturing and construction, conduct failure analysis, and provide consulting services. Following are some of the Engineering disciplines.

Mechanical Engineering: this focuses on design, manufacturing, inspection, and maintenance of machinery and equipment, alongside the control systems and instruments for monitoring their status and performance. This is inclusive of vehicles, construction, and farm machinery, a wide variety of tools and devices.

Electrical engineering: this refers to working on a wide range of components, devices, and systems, from tiny microchips to huge power station generators.

Civil Engineering: involves design, construction, maintenance, and inspection of large infrastructure projects such as highways, railroads, bridges, tunnels, dams, airports.

Industrial engineering: this is the practice of designing and optimizing facilities, equipment, systems, and processes for manufacturing, material processing, and any other number of work environments.

Computer engineering: this is the field of designing computer hardware components, computer systems, networks, and computer software.

In order to become an Engineer, you need to acquire very particular set of skills, not to mention, a degree or two. Before you decide to invest in an undergraduate school you need to evaluate your knack for mathematics, physics, and chemistry. In order to excel, you will have to have a good grasp of topics like algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus.

A career in engineering at least requires a bachelor’s degree. These programs include instructions in various system components. Here you will receive a general overview of various engineering fields. You will be taking courses in subjects such as mechanical, electrical, civil engineering. When you select a discipline you will take courses specific to that discipline. A graduate program would reinforce your skills and knowledge and contribute to, consequently, increasing your demand in the job market.

You need to have a Master’s degree in engineering in order to be employed in a faculty position.
