Applying scientific and mathematical principles, engineers develop new products and technologies that satisfy human needs. From every cool Apple product to prosthetic limbs, engineers are behind the latest developments in gadgets and innovative technologies. Engineers' solutions should be functional, economical, and compatible for human use. Therefore, testing for these requirements... in a lab environment is an important part of the engineer's job.
Entry-level engineering jobs generally require a Bachelor's degree in Engineering. Typically, a degree in engineering will consist of math, science, and design classes as well as concentrated classes. Concentrations include aerospace engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and petroleum engineering. Most programs offer a mix of practical lab work and theoretical research.
Another option for those who aspire to work in engineering is to enter a 2- to 4-year Engineering technology program. In these programs, students learn a variety of hands-on skills that can be used in the work force, and graduates can even be eligible for some of the same jobs as those with Bachelor's degrees.
Because of the important role engineer's play they are generally paid high salaries, though it varies by specialty.
