Engineering as a Field


Consider all of the things that have been constructed in our world: houses, cars and reclining chairs; playground equipment, technical camping tents and tennis shoes; chemical compounds, electronic devices and farm equipment. The construction of each of these things and a plethora of others has, at some point, required the wisdom, knowledge, and guidance of an engineer. The field of engineering then is as broad as the sky is vast.


Engineers specialize in particular types of design—structural, mechanical and electronic, to name a few—and they work in a variety of capacities. Environmental engineers, for example, work to find solutions to pressing environmental problems. Civil engineers, for example, plan and design the development of infrastructure projects. Biomedical, marine, and materials engineers, for example, analyze and design medicine, build and maintain sea vessels, and design, develop, and test a range of products. Any product you can think of required or requires the brilliance, ingenuity, and skilled input of an engineer. If you are someone who has always been curious about how things are built or has always wanted to invent and design new products, the field of engineering might be a perfect field for you.


What Types of People Earn a Degree in Engineering?


Engineers are thinkers, creators and innovators. They see possibilities in the forms of lines, numbers and diagrams and they identify with the inherent and designed structure of things. They look at a tree and see grids; a shoe and see form; a machine and see a well-organized (or not) mechanism. They think about the chemical composition of medicine, consider the inner-workings of computers, and analyze the stability of materials, structures and forms. They are often times mathematicians or scientists and find pleasure in perfecting details, respecting specifications, and addressing the nitty-gritty. They have an eye placed firmly on the order of things and are skilled in problem-solving, analytical thinking and taking innovative action. They are the types of people you want to have designing the things that support and contribute to your life and well-being on a daily and constant basis. They are thoughtful and critical and masterful at designing products that work. If you see yourself in any aspect of this description, consider getting a degree in the field.


What Types of Classes are Offered in Engineering Programs? 


Engineering programs can offer students an opportunity to convert their love for structure from a fascination into a skill. They teach students how to successfully design for their fields and to create products that are structurally sound. They can prepare students for a career in a field that students find fascinating.


The majority of students entering an engineering program already have an idea of the field in which they want to study and therefore don’t often engage in a general study of engineering. Instead, they move directly into their field of choice and start taking the courses in subjects such as math, science and design that are directly connected to their field of interest. Options for courses of study include but are not limited to:


Each of these courses of study offers students an opportunity to learn the math, science, and design-theory of their field of study. Within these courses of study, students often times specialize and direct their curiosities in the direction of specific products or design schemes. No matter their course of study, students can leave engineering programs prepared for a career in their fields.

Career Paths


The careers of engineers can lead down any number of paths. Again, if an item, whether big or small, animate or inanimate, practical or fun, has been designed and/or built, it has also enjoyed the benefit of a trained and skilled engineer’s eye. This means that engineers could work in any variety of settings. They could work in small, medium, or large offices, for private or public companies, and as permanent, contracted, or freelancing employees. They can offer their skills to individuals, communities, countries, or even the world. They could work for non-profits, giant corporations, or small mom and pop shops. They could work as designers, educators, or researchers.  They could work in a field that is broad, diverse, and devoted to making the world a better place through the use of safe and dependable structure and form.
