What kind of fields requires engineering?

I'm a junior in high school that wants to major in engineering. A few classes that I'm taking to achieve my major are a hybrid math class and a physics class. But, I'm wondering what kinds of fields require engineers. #engineering #math #engineer

Vanj’s Answer

Some of the fields that require engineers are:manufacturing,construction,pharmaceuticals, telecommunication, energy/nuclear, computer/network and a lot more. To be one of the engineers in those field you can choose which engineering discipline you're interested in or passionate about which includes:
1. Chemical Engineering
2. Civil Engineering
3. Electrical Engineering
4. Mechanical Engineering
5. Environmental Engineering
6. Aerospace/Aeronautical Engineering
7. Systems Engineering

Carl’s Answer

Hi, William C. Thanks for asking such an insightful question. Engineers are problem solvers so you will find them in many areas. Here are a few examples that you may be able to relate to in real life. Chemical engineers may be responsible for optimizing the fuel you put in your car. Mechanical engineers may design the engines that power the planes we ride in. Network engineers design and optimize telecommunications networks. Think of all of the news you've been seeing about 5G. Aerospace engineers help design and optimize airplanes. Civil engineers help build the world's infrastructure. Think of bridges, highways, tunnels, and bridges. This is just to name a few. As you can tell by your courses, all of these require a good bit of training in mathematics and science. When you are working on your classwork, always know that your assignment is working towards a bigger picture, providing a foundation for one of these engineering disciplines.

Carl recommends the following next steps:

Google engineering disciplines and read about the various engineering disciplines.
Visit Devry.edu. That site will give you some insight into various engineering discplines and provide some real world applications.

Andrew’s Answer

Taking mathematics and physical science (e.g., physics, chemistry) classes is an essential preparation for a future attempt in majoring in engineering. It is good that you have a good start.

Pertaining your question on the “kind of fields require engineering”, I would turn the question around by asking what are the benefits an engineering training to any area of work or study?

By definition, engineering is a process in turning a scientific knowledge to a practical/industrial application. Based on the quantitative and analytical training received, an engineer is trained to be a problem solver. That said, the skill of problem-solving can be applied to practical any fields of study or work.

Dana’s Answer

There are many kinds of engineers. Civil, mechanical, structural, electrical, industrial . Most colleges have an introductory class for freshman that will provide an overview of the different fields. I would suggest taking the introductory class to determine which field sounds interesting for you.
