Do you know engineering is the only career in which you look at the world’s problems and work out practical ways to solve them? Modern challenges of urban living, ageing society and climate change require good technology that uses fewer materials and less energy. Engineers use the principles of mathematics and science to come up with useful products or ways of doing things to make our lives better.
Your practical skills in designing, making and overall problem-solving are versatile and may be transferred to many fields; e.g. communications, information, transport, energy, water, food, infrastructure, manufacturing, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, technical consulting, management, finance, intellectual property and patent law, research, education, technopreneurship.
