What Does an Engineer Do?
Civil Engineers Civil Engineers plan, design, and supervise the construction of buildings, roads, bridges, and other structures. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Tacoma_Narrows_Bridge_Falling.png
Architectural Engineers Architectural engineers work with architects, focusing on the safety, cost, and construction methods used in constructing a building.
Biomedical Engineers Biomedical engineers work with doctors and biologists to develop medical instruments, artificial organs, and prostheses for those who have lost an arm or a leg.
Chemical Engineers Chemical Engineers work with petroleum, plastics, and other raw materials. They turn them into products that we use every day including soft drinks, make-up and prescription medicine.
Aerospace Engineers Aerospace engineers design rockets, space telescopes, airplanes and jets, and even help design race cars and golf balls.
Agricultural Engineers Agricultural engineers help farmers by designing machines that harvest crops and experimenting with indoor farming techniques, among many other things.
Electrical Engineers Electrical engineers take energy from various sources and move it to homes, factories and businesses. They design and work with TV’s, cell phones, and satellite transmissions.
Mechanical Engineers Mechanical engineers design and develop machines of all sizes. They also influence products such as doors and shoes. Some mechanical engineers work in robotics, automotives, and air conditioning.
Environmental Engineers Environmental engineers prevent environmental damage and fix existing problems. They look for new ways to reduce pollution and keep modern society earth friendly.
Mining Engineers Mining engineers figure out how to get valuable resources out of the ground. They also find ways to mine safely without destroying the land and return it to its natural state when the mining is finished.
