Study Guide To Engineering

Engineering is a very broad area that covers a large number of disciplines. If you are interested in a career in engineering, this guide will help you understand the options available and find a suitable course.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineers are concerned with the design, construction and use of machines. Specialisms include automobile engineering, aircraft engineering and robotics. Or you can choose a general mechanical engineering degree to keep your options open.

Civil Engineering & Construction

Civil Engineers are responsible for the design and construction of all the man made structures you see around you, including skyscrapers, shopping centres, roads, bridges, dams, sports arenas and more! As well as civil engineering, you can also consider a range of other disciplines related to the planning, building and maintenance of the built environment.

Electrical & Electronic Engineering

Electrical & Electronic Engineering is a vast field, covering everything to do with the generation, management and use of electricity in the world today. At the microscopic level, electronic engineers are interested in the design and construction of microelectronic components for use in computers and other devices. At the other end of the spectrum, electrical engineers are responsible for the generation and distribution of power.

Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering is about the processing of raw chemicals to make useful everyday products such as fertilizers, plastics, synthetic materials and energy products. Traditionally, chemical engineers are found in industries such as manufacturing and petrochemicals. But there are also opportunities in new and emerging fields such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and environmental services.

Software Engineering

Software Engineers are involved in the design and implementation of the software that operates computers, networks and the components found in everyday electrical appliances, such as TVs and washing machines. This discipline requires a deep knowledge of the way computers work and an aptitude for mathematics.
