Engineering programs cover an extremely wide range of disciplines that include many activities, such as research, development, design, manufacture, and operation. Engineering professions provide a combination of intellectual challenge and a sense of accomplishment at having created real solutions to problems. Most programs give students a solid foundation in engineering fundamentals that allows them to pursue a more specialized area of the field. These specialized areas are numerous and include aeronautical engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, environmental engineering, geological engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, nuclear engineering, systems engineering, and textile engineering.
Demand for engineers remains high today around the world, partly because engineers work in almost all sectors of the economy. Engineering students may specialize in such skills as automation, power generation, communications, or manufacturing. They also often have the opportunity to move into sales, marketing, or management. Many engineers go on to become chief executives of companies. As new materials and technologies are developed, the demand for engineers will continue to grow.
