Agricultural and Biological Engineers create solutions related to the development and production of food, environmental practices, agricultural and farming practices and they can even redesign life itself with genetic engineering.

Architectural Engineers design buildings and structures to improve the quality todays buildings.

Chemical Engineers use engineering to take a raw material and turn them into useful everyday products. They also create the process to produce those products and manage the world resources and make sure products are safe.

Civil engineers design and oversee the building of most of the major public works.

Control Systems Engineer uses sensors and detectors to measure the output performance of the process being controlled; these measurements are used to provide corrective feedback helping to achieve the desired performance.

Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electrical equipment, such as electric motors, radar and navigation systems, communication systems, or power generation equipment.

Environmental engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to problems in the environment.

Fire Protection engineer applies science and engineering principles to protect people, property, and their environments from the harmful and destructive effects of fire and smoke.

Geological and Mining engineers design mines that are safe to remove minerals such as coal and metals for use in manufacturing and utilities.

Industrial and Systems Engineers design systems to help reduce the wastefulness in production. They create systems that connect workers, machines, materials, information, and energy to make products.

Mechanical engineers design machines to help solve today’s problems. Mechanical engineers use many types of tools, engines, and machines.

Naval architecture and marine engineering (or ship design engineering) is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines. Naval architects design the largest manmade objects (over 1500 feet long) that move, and design some of the most complex systems (aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines).

Nuclear engineering offers unique opportunities to make a difference by developing uses of nuclear materials for medical equipment, food production, and much more!

Petroleum Engineers deal with the exploration, extraction and production of oil and they help find solutions for the country’s growing energy needs. They develop new ways to extract oil and natural gas directly from the earth and assist in the reclamation projects so nature isn’t permanently disturbed by drilling and mining operations.
