  • What is an engineer? An engineer is a professional practitioner of engineering, concerned with applying scientific knowledge, mathematics and ingenuity to develop solutions for technical problems. Engineers are grounded in applied sciences, and their work in research and development is distinct from the basic research focus of scientists. The work of engineers forms the link between scientific discoveries and their subsequent applications to human needs.
  • What does an Engineer do? Engineers apply the sciences of physics and mathematics to find suitable solutions to problems or to make improvements to the status quo. More than ever, engineers are now required to have knowledge of relevant sciences for their design projects. As a result, they may keep on learning new material throughout their career.
  • Some Engineering Professions Aerospace  Electrical Agricultural  Industrial Civil  Mechanical Chemical  Structural Computer  Systems
  • Careers in Transportation There has always been a great demand for engineers. As the economy continues to grow at a rapid pace, so does the need for the latest technology as well as the people who invent and apply it. For the past few years, there has been a shortage of engineers nationwide. Thousands of engineering positions are left unfilled, even with high salaries. The average salary of engineers is nearly twice of that across all industries. It certainly pays to be an engineer.Ray Murphy, ITS Specialist / Electrical Engineer
