We have all heard superheroes and their superpowers, but have you heard before about a superpower called “Engineering”?
Engineering combines scientific and mathematical principles to plan, design and innovate a multitude of practical applications. It’s a fast growing career with several interesting majors that you can choose from
In this blog, we will let you know what engineers do, the main types of engineering fields, their requirements, and their superpower.
1. Electrical and Communication engineering
(Always be yourself, unless you can be an Electrical engineer)
Electrical engineering is one of the major and long-standing fields of engineering.
This Major focuses on the design, development and ongoing support of electrical devices, components, machines and equipment.
Professionals specializing in the electrical engineering field often work on projects concerning the creation and integration of electrical systems, such as electrical motors, generators, power circuits, radar and sonar technologies and geospatial and communications systems.
Here are some common electrical and electronics engineering roles:
- Electrical controls engineer
- Electrical design engineer
- Electronics engineer
- Instrumentation engineer
- Test engineer
2. Mechanical engineering
(Ready to build your own Future)
Mechanical engineering is another long-standing field of engineering. This area concentrates on the design, development and innovation of machines and mechanical parts and systems.
Mechanical engineering generally relies on principles in physics, mathematics and technology to deliver innovative products and solutions to areas like the automotive, manufacturing, industrial and aerospace industries.
Here are some common mechanical engineering roles:
- Mechanical engineer
- Manufacturing engineer
- Industrial engineer
- Marine engineer
- Heating engineer
- Automotive engineer
- Aerospace engineer
- Equipment engineer
- Biomechanical engineer
3. Civil engineering
(The road of success is always under construction)
Civil engineering can trace its origins back to the development of societies and social communities. Although civil engineering has this simple beginning, it continues to grow with innovative concentrations.
Essentially, civil engineers design and oversee the processes of urban development, including the construction of infrastructures like bridges, roads and buildings.
Some common civil engineering jobs include:
- Structural engineer
- Environmental engineer
- Geotechnical engineer
- Transportation engineer
- Logistics engineer
- Water resource engineer
- Construction engineer
- Site engineer
4) Architectural engineering
(Architecture begins where engineering ends)
Architectural engineering is vital to the success of any construction project. By integrating their knowledge of structural, mechanical, electrical, and environmental systems, architectural engineers ensure that buildings meet the highest standards of structural integrity, energy efficiency, and sustainability.
Some common Architecture engineering jobs include:
- Building Architect
- Landscape Architect
- Urban Planner
- Environmental Conservationist
- Architecture Researcher
- Structural Engineers
- Plumbing Engineers
- Lighting Designers
- Acoustic Engineers
