Engineers who changed the game
“Engineering is magic ... or at least the closest thing to magic that exists in the world.”
“I don't know why I always liked aerospace engineering. It's my passion.”
“Engineering is about doing the best you can with limited resources.”
What type of engineer are you?
Answer a few short questions to find out what engineering field suits you!

ANOTHER POSSIBLE CAREER FOR ME MIGHT BE
WHAT INVENTION WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN THE FUTURE?
WHERE WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO WORK?
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN MEDICAL SCIENCES?
DO YOU LIKE DESIGNING MECHANICAL SYSTEMS?
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO CONSIDER YOUR PERSONAL HERO?
Have you considered Mechanical Engineering?
As a mechanical engineer you can spend your days building driveless racecars and developing the next generation of electric cars. Pretty cool, huh! You can also design assistive devices for people with disabilities such as stair climbing power chairs or exoskeletons that help handicap individuals walk.
Have you considered Chemical Engineering?
Believe it or not, but as a chemical engineer you can spend your days working with chocolate. That’s right, chocolate! In fact you can work for a number of food manufacturing companies. If gastronomy isn’t your thing, maybe you’d be more interested in biotechnology where you can work to develop vaccines, artificial organs and experimental treatments to help save lives. Have a green thumb? Chemical engineers can also help save the environment by reducing pollution and treating waste.
Have you considered Civil Engineering?
As a civil engineer, you can participate in some exciting projects that might change the future! That’s right, change the future. One of the biggest civil engineering projects is the ‘Super-sustainable central park tower’ that has been designed under the philosophy of Global Environmental Contextualism in order to optimize air circulation. Have a green thumb? Civil engineers can also help save the environment by working on various projects whose aim is to reduce air pollution. Lets take the Green Roof systems as an example, civil engineers are responsible for planning their installation and maintenance!
Have you considered Electrical Engineering
As an electrical engineer, you have the opportunity to design some pretty cool devices that can improve our daily life. We’re talking about practical devices like a personal flying car or a super capacitor that could charge your phone in 30 seconds. You can also help people with disabilities by designing assistive devices such as stair climbing power chairs or exoskeletons that help handicap individuals walk.
Computer engineers can use their coding skills to solve any analytical and logical problems. They can program heating/cooling devices at home and operate them with their cell phone or write an app to help educate third world children. You can also work as a computer hardware engineer for NASA and develop control software and spacecraft command.
Biomedical engineers design and build artificial organs, vessels, legs, arms, systems used in eye surgery and many other inventions. They help save lives every day. YES, you heard that right, THEY HELP SAVE LIVES! Biomedical engineering can also be applied in the field of veterinary medicine such as in making hospital equipment for animals ( Example: knee replacements etc)
