- Engineering Careers
An engineering career comes in many forms.
Just because you are an Engineer doesn’t mean you’ll wear a hard hat, ever (unless you want to). A career in engineering could find you underground in a mine, trekking across Antarctica, flying in a zero gravity simulator, working in a lab creating life-saving drugs or managing the people that do all of those things.
You know, it’s quite common to find that the CEO of a company has a degree in engineering. That’s because the skills you learn when you study engineering – like problem solving and project management – can be applied to any industry and pretty much any job. Keep exploring this section for more information on what engineers do.
If you want diversity and action all rolled into one, choose a career in engineering. The only limit on engineering careers is your own imagination.
From problem solving to inventing to managing, engineering careers can take you to the moon and back.
Alongside traditional engineering fields, a whole range of completely new engineering careers has emerged.
Although many engineers begin their careers in technical roles, look closely at the CEO of any big corporation (he/she probably has an engineering degree). How do they do it?
