Environmental engineers uses the principles of engineering to study the subjects such as chemistry, biology, ecology, geology, hydraulics, hydrology, microbiology, soil science to develop improved solutions for recycling, waste disposal, public health, water and air pollution control.
A highly specialised subset of materials science and engineering that is concerned with the study of the physical and chemical behaviour of metallic elements, inter-metallic compounds and alloys is called metallurgy. This specialisation deals with science used to separate metals from their ore and the technology applied to engineer metallic components for specific uses. Metallurgy […]
The science and technology of creation of objects from non-metallic and inorganic materials is referred to as ceramic engineering. The process involves either the use of heat or as a result of precipitation reactions of pure chemical solutions at lower temperatures. It also involves raw material purification, analysis and fabrication of the concerned chemical compounds […]
Mining engineering refers to a specialised field of engineering where science and technology is applied to extract minerals from the earth. Mining engineers may be involved in any part of the mining process—from exploration of mineral resources and conducting feasibility studies, to designing mines, outlining plans, production, operations and even mine closure. Mining areas are […]
Nanotechnology engineering, otherwise known as nanoengineering, is a highly specialised and promising field of engineering concerned with research and development using cells and molecules on the nanometre scale. While a major part of the profession is dedicated towards research, nanoengineering also looks for ways to enhance materials already in existence. Nanoengineers are responsible for outlining […]
Photonics engineers are have been credited with developing optical, electro-optical imaging systems, fiber optics and lasers for systems and devices that are light-dependent. Photonics engineering is concerned with the use of light in energy generation, information detection and transmission.
Engineering physics emphasises on the importance of research and development, and has a novel approach to the sciences; it prepares students to tackle the engineering challenges of the 21st century by application of the concepts in physics. A degree in this field is ideal for those looking to pursue research and development in engineering.
Because it’s the perfect mix of mechanical, electric and electronic and computer engineering! Marine engineers are a key support system in the fields of naval defence, environmental research and underwater extraction of resources. They are meant for most equipment-related technology that has association with oceanography.
Nuclear engineering is a specialised branch of engineering that deals with the various application of nuclear fission or fusion in various other fields. In simplified terms, nuclear engineers are responsible for finding innovative industrial and medical applications of nuclear energy and radiation.
As compared to the conventional discrete divisions of mechanical, computer, control and electronic engineering, mechatronics engineering combines the relevant aspects of all these disciplines, and plays an integral role across industries by unifying the principles taught separately in each field.
