124 Interesting Careers for Engineering

    There would be no modern world, no society without the marvels of engineering. From construction to aeronautics, medicine to the environment, and even the chair you are sitting in, microprocessors, high-speed motors, cellular networks, power grids, automated assembly lines, and many others, engineering is everywhere.

    Engineerings are known to apply mathematical and scientific principles to solve a wide variety of practical problems in industry, social organization, public works, and commerce. Including researching, designing, building, and maintaining software systems, developing or maintaining advanced communication systems, and bridges, helping steam turbines to run more effectively, and much more besides.

    This simply means engineering is a vast field that has a presence in nearly every industry, from manufacturing and production to shipping and construction, entertainment, healthcare, space, or the environment. In fact, engineering is behind everything. Engineering is one of the most reputed careers in the job market with an expectation of a 6% job growth increase between the years 2020 and 2030.

    There are so many disciplines/sectors under engineering that no matter what your prospective career interest is, there’s bound to be one facet of the sector you will find fulfilling. Here on this page, I have listed the most popular careers for engineering some of which may or may not require a degree but will typically require at least a high school diploma or equivalent. For the most, you will be provided with several months of the on-the-job training program.
