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.
In this section, mechanical engineering often sees design, manufacturing, inspection, and machinery maintenance. 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 the 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 and 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 radiation effects.
Structural engineering involves designing, constructing, and inspecting load-bearing structures such as large commercial buildings, bridges, and industrial infrastructure.
Biomedical is designing systems, equipment and devices for medical use. It also involves working closely with medical practitioners, including doctors, nurses, technicians, therapists and researchers, 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 mixing, compounding and processing chemicals to make valuable products.
Computer engineering is 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 pollution sources that affect air, water and land. It also involves detecting and measuring pollution levels, determining pollution sources, cleaning up and rehabilitating polluted sites and ensuring compliance with local, state and federal regulations.
