What are different types of engineers that are less technical or don't use coding?

I'm interested in science and math but I'm not as interested in the coding aspect of the engineering field. #college #engineering #engineer #majors

All fields of Engineering are considered technical but some may require fewer technical skills. You still need to have strong math skills to consider the field of engineering. I was a civil engineer and I consider that less technical than electrical, computer or aeronautical engineering. Civil engineering involves many interesting types of projects with a wide variety of skills. Projects I was involved in included design of highways, roadways, freeways, toll roads, local streets, airport improvements, water distribution networks, irrigation systems, wastewater and water treatment facilities, wastewater collection, storm drainage systems, residential site development projects, industrial facilities and many others. I learned a great amount throughout my career by interacting with other types of engineers like mechanical or industrial.


When you enter college your first year or two will be almost the same subjects for any type of engineer you would like to become. In your junior and senior year you will need to select a field of engineering you would like to concentrate in. I recommend you spend the first two years of college evaluating different types of engineering. You may have a counselor to help you with this or you could talk to professors from the different types of engineering.


Good luck in the future.

Mechanical and chemical engineering degrees will allow you to get into plant operational support which is zero coding and mostly common sense smarts based off your education.

Sameer’s Answer

All engineering fields can be technical but all dont need coding. Whether it is too technical depends on your interests. If you like a particular field, you will seldom find it technical or difficult. All engineering fields (Mechanical, Civil, Industrial, Petroleum, Aerospace, Chemical, etc.) donot require coding skills.


Also, what Frederick said in above post is fantastic!
