Engineering is a fantastic opportunity to undertake a vocational career while applying simple and complex scientific theories to practice. It is found in multiple aspects of daily life and is the foundation for many of the luxuries we enjoy in the 21st century.

If you have a burning desire to fulfil your creative and innovative technical career aspirations, undertaking an engineering degree offers you the chance to experience a wide range of industries while having the ability to specialise in a discipline best suited to your interests.

What types of engineering are there?

Engineering is the practice of designing, building, and maintaining machines, structures, and engines. Within this, there are many categories that you can choose to specialise in:

  • Structural
  • Civil
  • Mechanical
  • Environmental
  • Architectural
  • Electrical
  • Computer engineering

To find out what kind of jobs are available in the engineering sectors, read on below!

Structural engineer

By specialising as a structural engineer, you can lay the foundations for some of the most desirable and crucial buildings and bridges needed to handle the growing need for a developing infrastructure. Structural engineers are needed to understand the stability, strength and rigidity of concepts presented by architects to ensure that the structure can withstand natural forces.

The key scientific theory to understand is the law of physics and practical knowledge of the materials used in structural engineering. Discover more structural engineering jobs at Mott MacDonald here.

Civil engineer

Civil engineers are crucial to the success of the built environment as they are responsible for the design, construction, and maintenance of public facilities such as roads, bridges, airports, dams, pipelines, railways and much more. Having a good understanding of maths and physics is essential to begin pursuing a career in civil engineering as the physical and scientific principles implemented are used to further the development and improvement of our infrastructure and wider society.

One of the benefits of taking a civil engineering job is that there is constant demand for engineers to work on a multitude of projects, providing you with an opportunity to learn new skills and disciplines related to the undertaken project at the time.

Mechanical engineer

As one of the oldest engineering disciplines, mechanical engineering is the broadest. Emerging from the industrial revolution in Europe, mechanical engineering is a fundamental element of the world we live in today. From car engines to power plants – becoming a mechanical engineer allows you to implement your knowledge of mathematics, science, business, and management in a practical environment. Perfect for someone that wants to diversify their engineering career. Discover more mechanical engineering jobs at Mott MacDonald here.

Environmental engineer

As the world evolves, our impact on the environment becomes more substantial due to the consumption of resources, space, and people. By becoming an environmental engineer, your hard work can be felt for generations to come. Environmental engineering is rapidly becoming a key focus for many businesses, including ourselves.

By establishing processes needed to make changes, environmental engineers affect the way we operate before, during and after a project. This results in the quality of water, air and the ground being made a priority, reducing the impact that engineering has on the environment.
