Electrical engineers work on a wide range of components, devices and systems, from tiny microchips to huge power station generators.


Industrial engineers devise efficient ways to use workers, machines, materials, information, and energy to make a product or provide a service.


Mechanical engineers design, develop, build, and test mechanical and thermal devices, including tools, engines, and machines.


Chemical engineers apply the principles of chemistry, biology, physics, and math to solve problems that involve the production or use of chemicals, fuel, drugs, food, and many other products.


Civil engineers design, construct, supervise, operate, and maintain large construction projects and systems.
Environmental engineers use the principles of engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to develop solutions to environmental problems.
