Engineering Courses

Engineering is an extensive subject, and with so many types of engineering to choose from, it can be difficult to narrow down which one is for you. To help you to decide, you should try and identify what you’re passionate about. What gets you excited, and what do you spend your free time on? All types of engineering include some form of problem-solving (and generally focus on making life easier), but what engineering-related solution gives you the biggest buzz? If you choose a subject you’re naturally interested in, you’ll find it easier to stay motivated during your course and stay involved with the subject whilst pursuing an engineering career.

Here’s a rundown of the various branches of engineering, to help you decide which one could be for you.

What is engineering?

Engineering uses science, math, and technology to solve challenges. From civil engineers who create optimal layouts for cities to software engineers who develop our favorite apps, engineers power much of the world around us and fuel technological innovation.

There are multiple types of engineering, including:

  • Mechanical engineering: the design and development of heavy machinery and its components.

  • Electrical engineering: the use of electricity to power computerized devices and digital systems.

  • Civil engineering: the creation and maintenance of infrastructure like roads, tunnels, public transit systems, and more.

  • Software engineering: the application of engineering principles to create computer or web applications.

  • Computer engineering: the building and maintenance of computer hardware and connected systems.

  • Aerospace engineering: the use of aerodynamics principles to design aircraft and related systems.

  • Chemical engineering: the study and use of raw chemicals.

  • Environmental engineering: the practice of improving sustainability and reducing pollution in the natural world.

  • Biomedical engineering: the creation of equipment and systems for improving human health.

Engineers in every specialization need strong problem-solving abilities and working knowledge of system design, project management, and computer science. Whether you lean toward creativity or logical analysis, engineering can engage your mind and challenge you professionally.
