Engineers are "Problem Solvers"

Engineers follow a specific design process using mathematics, science, and technology to improve many aspects of our daily world. Since engineering affects many different elements, its applications are vast and varied. A structural engineer may work on designing buildings to withstand tornados or tsunamis, while a transportation engineer may help design a better public transit system. An industrial engineer may help a car manufacturer streamline production to improve efficiency, while a mechanical engineer may design new parts for the car to improve the car's reliability. Chemical engineers may work on creating new pharmaceuticals or help with a manufacturing process while working with environmental engineers to minimize impact on the environment.

While engineering applications vary, all engineers, in general, possess some common strengths:

  • Ability to work on teams
  • Critical thinking skills
  • Math and science skills
  • Communication skills
  • Technology use
  • Ability to conduct data analysis

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a significant growth in demand for engineers over the next decade, offering a promising career path. It also reports that the median salary for engineers is considerably higher than the median wage for all workers, indicating the potential for financial stability and growth in this field.

If you are a problem solver, can work well with others, and have a strong desire to make a positive impact on the world, then engineering may be the perfect choice for you.
