What is Engineering?
Engineering is the combination of both science and math to solve day to day issues, Engineers work out how things work and find uses for scientific discoveries, inventors and scientist often get all the credit for innovations that advance the human race, but it is the engineers that make these innovations available to the world.
Engineers are also responsible for the design, evaluate, develop, test, modify, install, inspect and maintain a wide variety of products and systems, they also discover uses for products, ensuring they are suitable for the design of the product, supervision of the product manufacture and construction, conduct failure analysis (FEA) finite element method, to test the products before they are produced.
Areas of manufacturing.
Mechanical engineering in this section we often see design, manufacturing, inspection and maintenance of machinery this can be anything from a CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) router to a robotic arm.
Electrical engineering, includes design, testing, manufacturing of electrical circuits it also includes the construction, control, monitoring and inspection of electrical and electronic circuits
Civil engineering, involves design, construction, maintenance and inspection of large infrastructure projects such as highways, railroads, bridges, tunnels, dams and airports.
Aerospace involves design, manufacturing and testing of aircraft and spacecraft as well as parts and components such as airframes, power plants, control and guidance systems, electrical and electronic systems, and communication and navigation systems.
Nuclear, involves design, manufacturing, construction, operation and testing of equipment, systems and processes involving the production, control and detection of nuclear radiation. These systems include particle accelerators and nuclear reactors for electric power plants and ships, radioisotope production and research. The nuclear engineer also includes monitoring and protecting humans from the potentially harmful effects of radiation.
Structural engineering, involves design, construction and inspection of load-bearing structures such large commercial buildings, bridges and industrial infrastructure.
Biomedical is the practice of designing systems, equipment and devices for use in the practice of medicine. It also involves working closely with medical practitioners, including doctors, nurses, technicians, therapists and researchers, in order to determine, understand and meet their requirements for systems, equipment and devices.
Chemical engineering, is the practice of designing equipment, systems and processes for refining raw materials and for mixing, compounding and processing chemicals to make valuable products.
Computer engineering, is the practice of designing computer hardware components, computer systems, networks and computer software.
Industrial engineering is the practice of designing and optimizing facilities, equipment, systems and processes for manufacturing, material processing, and any number of other work environments.
Environmental engineering is the practice of preventing, reducing and eliminating sources of pollution that affect air, water and land. It also involves detecting and measuring pollution levels, determining sources of pollution, cleaning up and rehabilitating polluted sites and ensuring compliance with local, state and federal regulations.
