2  Have you always wanted to build things, play with legos, take apart TVs, or simply wanted to know how things work?  Do you have a love of math and science?  Are you willing to make new discoveries?

3  Engineering is defined as, “The branch of science and technology concerned with the design, building, and use of engines, machines, and structures.”  Too technical? Why don’t we look more into specific types of engineering?

4  Work primarily with spacecrafts, aircrafts, or missiles.  Can specialize in areas such as design, navigation systems, or manufacturing techniques  Astronautical engineers deal with crafts outside the Earth’s atmostphere, while aeronautical engineers stay within the earth

5  There is a lot of focus on objects moving within gases or liquids, which can be applied to everything from the launching of a shuttle to golf balls or high-speed trains.  Often a separate degree, but it can also fall as a speciality under Mechanical Engineering  Starting salary for a B.S.- $56,335

6  Work in collaboration with health and medical fields to improve the health and safety of everyone around you  Projects include developing prosthetic limbs, joint replacements, medical instruments, and artificial organs

7  You can specialize in electronics or mechanics that have BME applications  Or, you can work toward the more biological side, working on tissues or organs  Many BMEs have chemical engineering degrees and take pre-med classes, while other schools offer specific degrees  Starting salary is $68,000

8  Work with the production and use of chemicals  Can treat and purify drinking water, refine products from petroleum, processing food, or recovering raw materials  Need to produce products with several factors in mind, such as cost and environmental impact

9  Usually a specific degree offered at universities, with many specialties such as petroleum or mutagen engineering  Staring salary- $65, 403

10  With this degree, you would be able to work on projects such as building bridges, stadiums, and everything in between  Oversee construction  Produce efficient means to get jobs done- such as airport walkways or highways

11  Four year degree, with specialties in structures, hydraulics, transportation, or management available in many colleges  Staring salary- $51, 793

12  Find computers fascinating?  With this degree, you can develop new computer hardware or software, write codes for to solve problems, or even work with robotics  Many computer engineers can work from home

13  At some universities, there is a distinction between computer engineering as being involved with hardware or systems, and software engineering or computer science, which would deal with programming codes  Available as its own degree or as a specialization or duel-degree under/with electrical engineering  Starting salary-$61, 017

14  Interested in how your iPod or television works? Or how your home or school is powered?  With an EE degree, you can work on robotics, electronic devices, or even space communication  This is also the largest field of engineering

15  Many EE’s get their degree in this field, though some prefer to get their degree in physics or electronics  Starting salary: $57,600

16  Environmental engineers work to protect the environment  Many focus on containing and filtering pollution, properly disposing waste materials, or properly recycling materials  You can make an impact on the planet!

17  There are opportunities in both Environment Engineering and “Green,” or sustainable engineering  Some colleges offer these specific degrees, but these engineers can be mechanical, agricultural, or other types  Starting salary- $45,000

18  Many engineering subjects can also fall under mechanical engineering  Involves anything that contains a mechanical process- from an aircraft, to a toy, to an engine  In this field, you can study heat transfer, buildings, systems, materials, manufacturing…the list goes on!

19  Another one of the most popular engineering degrees, so many schools offer at least a BS  Many ME’s cross over into other fields, due to the versatility of their degree and subject material  Starting salary- $58,749

20  Nuclear engineers work with nuclear energy (which occurs when atoms split) to design products  These inventions include all the processes involved in nuclear energy, such as using the fuel and its disposal, as well as medical imaging and carbon dating.  It is a perfectly safe field with little actual exposure to radioactive materials

21  Many Nuclear engineers get a BS in nuclear engineering, while other get an advanced degree in Nuclear science  Starting salary- $58,266
