About Engineering

Engineering is a combination of multiple subjects-- art, mathematics, science, and economics. The job of an engineer involves designing and building structures, machines, devices, systems, or materials that make improvements to people's lives.
There are multiple types of engineers such as:
  • Architect
  • Bioengineer
  • Chemical Engineer
  • Civil & Enviornmental Engineer
  • Electrical Engineer
  • Industrial Engineer
  • Mechanical Engineer
  • Nuclear Engineer

Each type of engineer works with different aspects of our daily lives. For example, a chemical engineer look for the best way to turn raw materials into finished products while an architect designs the buildings and homes in which we live in.

So what must one do to start a career as an engineer?

It is always best to have prerequisites when wishing to start a career. For engineering, you'll most likely need to have completed classes in calculus, chemistry, communication, computer programming, engineering, problem solving, and physics. Choosing on getting either your master's or doctorate degree in engineering depends on your career goals and what area of engineering you'd like to practice. Doctoral programs require five-to-seven years of graduate study, while master's degree programs requires only two years of full-time graduate study. PhD programs are generally designed for people primarily interested in research and education in the engineering field. Master’s programs are designed to expand and deepen the knowledge and skills acquired as an undergraduate.

All states require licensure for engineers who offer their services directly to the public. Engineers who are licensed are called Professional Engineers (PE). Civil, mechanical structural, industrial and environmental engineers are most likely to seek licensure because they often work for government agencies. Computer engineers are least likely to seek licensure.
Although licensure laws vary, most boards require four steps:
  1. Earn a bachelor's degree in engineering from a school accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)
  2. Pass the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination
  3. Complete at least four years of engineering experience
  4. Pass the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) examination
