What you must about Engineering

What is engineering?

Engineering is the science or art of offering practical application of the knowledge of pure sciences, like chemistry or physics, as in the construction of buildings, engine, ships, bridges, chemical plants, and precision machining. Engineering is the ultimate human endeavor, creating solutions to the world's challenges and designing the products that support our quality of life.

What type of engineering is there?

Today, engineers don't have to do with building and construction only. There are a lot of other fields and sub-branches of those fields that provide you with a promising career as an engineer. Most, if not all expect a person to have some creative skills, as well as scientific and mathematical expertise. The types of engineers are broadly classified as mechanical, electrical, civil, and chemical.

Electrical Engineering is one of the most influential and diverse branches of Engineering discipline. It is considered a mathematically oriented application as it covers various aspects of electric components, electric signals, and circuits. It includes planning and developing technologies and incorporates them into electronic devices and systems.

Chemical engineering has secondary branches to it. Forestry, agriculture, environmental, biosystem, food, water resource, material, and plastic are a few to name. Chemical engineering and its sub-branches have changed the entire environment and agricultural system, and practically everything around us.

Mechanical engineering focuses on moving parts and everything that is associated with that. Students will learn about thermal dynamics, statics, and fluid dynamics to name a few. Mechanical engineering provides jobs in the auto industry building parts for cars. Another occupation for this group is the energy field, where one will work with companies who want to create Green energy.

A civil engineer involves design, preparation, analysis, development, and maintenance of a variety of facilities such as railways, waterways and canals, powerhouses, wastewater disposal systems, buildings, airports, water treatment, environmental quality control, docks and harbors and much more. This field also deals with critical problems of today such as constructing offshore structures for oil production, disaster mitigation, and management.

Why is engineering important?

The first point is that engineers are given the role to create systems that can protect and unite the people and the environment around them. The ones who designed the roads are the engineers; connecting one civilization to another and bringing people closer together, for example, a bridge over a river. Engineering also helps precision machining to create tools and parts in a way that is precise, stable, accurate, and durable.

What is engineering used for?

Engineering is used for a variety of things, designing and construction of building, aircraft, and spacecraft, designing and developing technologies and incorporates them into electric devices and systems. Tools or components need repair or restoration and may require machine calibration, welding or grooving to restore them to their original state. With the help of engineering, this can be done by precision machining.


Scientists are fundamental in society, and without them, we would certainly not be even close to where we are today. They investigate and discover new knowledge in the universe by peering into the unknown to help make our lives in the world much better and more comfortable. Engineers plan and build what has never existed before.
