Engineering covers many different types of activity.

  • Engineers make things, they make things work and they make things work better
  • Engineers use their creativity to design solutions to the world’s problems
  • Engineers help build the future
  • Engineers work in almost every area that affect people - including biomedical engineering, like new materials for hip replacements or advanced prosthetics
  • Engineers make the food we eat and the medicines we take. They also develop new materials like high performance sports fabrics or new electronic displays

  • Engineers build the world around us including buildings, roads, bridges, schools and hospitals 
  • Engineers also manage our water, gas and electricity supplies and they also develop new ways to generate electricity such as wind and solar power
  • Engineering can be pursued and practiced by anyone with the willingness
  • Not all engineering is hands-on and practical, but at the same time, not all engineering is paper and calculations. It is so diverse, engineers can pursue a particular part of engineering they like and specialise
