If you love design, buildings, engines, machines, structures and finding out how things work, then engineering subjects are for you. There are lots of careers to consider within the 4 main branches of engineering:
Chemical engineering—mineral extraction, petroleum engineer, process and manufacturing design, and pharmaceutical production
Civil engineering—design of the building of transport systems, utility supplies, airports and railways and structural testing
Electrical engineering—electricity generation and distribution, installation, control systems, communication networks and computer system integration and control
Mechanical engineering—mining, oil and gas engineers, robotic devices, automation, process plant equipment design and manufacture, aviation and aerospace
Engineering study requires a sound knowledge of mathematics and physics, as well as potentially chemistry and biology, depending on your career aspirations.
