The Different Types of Engineers

Engineering is one of the most lucrative and demanding jobs in the world. It requires vast technical knowledge and the aptitudes to put that knowledge into practice. All we see around us, from skyscrapers to smart phones, are all here thanks to some very creative engineers. The range of work that implies engineering skills is very vast and because of that engineering has been divided into different branches. We have listed some of the types of engineers in order to better understand what they do.

Petroleum engineers are some of the best paid in the world. As the name says, they work in the energy field, petroleum to be more specific. It is calculated that in the next decade the demand for petroleum engineers will exceed the capacity of universities to train new ones. This situation appeared in the context of increased energy consumption worldwide. The starting salary for a young petroleum engineer is around 74000 dollars per year.

Electrical engineers design, test and supervise the manufacture electrical equipment. We can easily say that all of our electronics, from the fridge to the gps, has once passed through the attentive hands of an electrical engineer. Some engineers specialize in designing schematics for commercial and domestic use. The starting salary for a young electrical engineer is around 56000 dollars per year. Computer engineers are the people behind every software technology we use. The demand for computer engineers is so high that some universities gave up to older specialties in order to make more room for this field. The technological advance will need more and more computer engineers and the companies take good care of the ones they already have. The starting salary for a young computer engineer is around 64000 dollars per year.

Aerospace engineers are the people behind every space travel. They are highly qualified and very well paid. The catch here is that there are not many of them and not many more are needed, given that space travel is not commercial yet. Their job implies a lot of knowledge and responsibility given the special field of work. A young aerospace engineer can expect around 65000 per year. Chemical engineers are usually hired in the field of manufacture, production and research. They are implied in the process of clothes making, food industry, medicine and even construction. They are very well paid given the sometimes-toxic work environment and the responsibility they carry on their shoulders every day. A young chemical engineer can expect around 94000 dollars per year.

Materials engineers work at designing and testing new materials for all branches of production. They create and test construction materials, automotive materials, fabric, consumer materials and special industry fabrics. They cover a vast field of work. The starting salary for a young materials engineer is around 56000 dollars per year but is depends on the field of production. Engineers carry a lot of responsibility on their shoulders given the fact that they create basically everything around us. They will be definitely needed in the near and distant future.

The Amazing Field of Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical engineering can be defined as the study of the behaviour of the earth or different soils which are subjected to loading forces and soil-water interactions. This study is readily applied in the design of foundations, earth dams, retaining walls, geosynthetics for waste containment and clay liners. The objectives of this study range from the…

Risk Management of Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical engineering is a complex branch of civil engineering, it is related to how earths materials and their behaviour. This aspect is extremely important to civil engineers and architects alike. As well as many other industries. A geotechnical engineer uses the principles of soil and rock mechanics to look into subsurface conditions and materials and…

Geotechnical Engineering in Architecture

How often do you look a beautifully designed building and think of the skilled architect that planned and designed the building? The hours of labour, design and building that went into the building is noticed by many who pass by. However, we often forget about the other, not so well-known experts that go into creating…
