Different Types of Engineers
Engineers work tirelessly to find solutions to problems. From building bridges to developing waterproof textiles, engineers can be found in just about every industry. Engineering can be broken down into four major branches:

  • EngineerChemical engineering — the study of chemicals and the process of creating new materials and compounds
  • Mechanical engineering — the study of designing mechanical systems
  • Civil engineering — the study of designing and constructing public and private works
  • Electrical engineering — the study of designing electrical systems and components
