Engineering is a diverse and vast field that readily and eagerly accepts new graduates into employment. In every field of employment, from environmental careers to urban planning, there is a need for engineering in some form; engineers create eco-friendly cleaners and designs for bridges along with other products created by the fusion of mathematical and scientific principles.
Within the field of engineering an engineer can design, test, or manufacture a product. Typically engineers specialize in either certain technology or a specific field subcategory. There are 17 engineering specialties recognized by the Federal Government’s Standard Occupational Classification system and many other new fields exist.1
Engineering ultimately helps the public regardless of the subcategory. Engineers pool knowledge of science and mathematics to create products that will better the common good.
