Leading Engineering and Tech Programs 2021
If ever there was a future proof career area to work in, it would be the field of Engineering. With an ever more densely populated world, and an accelerating rate of climate change, the demand for engineers, especially in the civil, environmental and materials areas is greater than ever and will only increase going forward.
Civil engineers design and develop cities, towns and other population areas and are typically federally employed. They are charged with designing and creating efficient dwelling, transportation and infrastructure that meets the needs of the existing population while being scalable for future needs.
Environmental engineers, as the name would suggest, are focused on preserving and improving the environment,working in areas such as waste and flood water management, soil quality, ozone depletion, air pollution, urban noise pollution, and others. As well as developing solutions in these areas, environmental engineers liaise with local and federal governments on plans and permits, oversee construction, and ensure compliance throughout the building process.
Materials Engineers are focused on researching and developing suitable materials that are used various stages of a variety of manufacturing processes. Efficiency, longevity, and environmental impact are key considerations when deciding on what material to use in a specific purposes and applications. Plastics are a key current area where the conventional thinking is being challenged in the light of global conservation and environmental concerns.
Other popular areas of engineering specialty include industrial, mechanical, electrical, chemical, marine, and biomedical.
Whatever field you decide to specialize in, the most important first step is deciding where to earn your credentials.
