Questions on Engineering

Answers to frequently asked questions

Engineering Careers

Bioengineers are in research and development labs in all areas of medicine from investigating the physiological behavior of a single cell to designing implants using living and non-living materials.
Biosystems Engineering
Biosystems engineers apply engineering principles to biological systems. The program incorporates fundamental biological principles to engineering designs to achieve ecological balance.
Chemical Engineering

A degree in chemical engineering will prepare you for a wide variety of careers related to the environment, advanced and renewable materials, energy conservation, consumer products, health, and biotechnology.

Civil Engineering

Civil engineers build the infrastructure for modern civilization, in a manner that advances the safety, health, and welfare of the public and improves the environment through the practice of sustainable development.

Computer Engineering

Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates training in computer science and electronics engineering to enable graduates to develop computer hardware and software.

Computer engineers work in many areas of specialization including information security, communications, and wireless networks, compilers and operating systems, computational science and engineering, mobile computing and distributed systems, computer architecture and parallel processing, computer vision and robotics, embedded systems, integrated circuits, and signal and image processing.

Computer Science
Computer Science focuses their research on the underlying theory of computation, algorithms, software engineering, cyber-infrastructure, computer systems, and other core areas of traditional computer science.
Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineers design, develop, test, and supervise the deployment of countless types of electrical systems and electronic devices.

Environmental Engineering
Environmental engineers apply the principles of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and the earth sciences to make our world more sustainable. They solve problems such as air pollution, hazardous and radioactive waste management, contaminated water supplies, historically contaminated sites, and toxic waste spills.
Industrial Engineering

Industrial engineers (IE) improve organized effort by making systems safer, more efficient, and more profitable. Modern IEs can be found in fields including logistics and supply chain, healthcare, manufacturing, consulting, security, finance, technical sales and beyond.

IEs learn how to model and analyze real-world problems from airport security checkpoints to emergency evacuations by breaking down decision-making problems into elegant mathematical models

Material Science & Engineering

Materials scientists and engineers design, develop, and produce both traditional and new advanced materials with diverse applications intended for use in a wide variety of industries.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers usually focus on matters related, but not limited to, manufacturing, energy, machines, materials, transportation, and design – perhaps a wider range of areas than any other engineering discipline.
