Have you thought about a career in engineering?

You’re in for a lucrative career. Engineers of all types are in demand, and many of them make over six figures a year.

Before you get too excited, you have to understand that there are many different types of engineering to choose from.

What are the different types of engineering and how do you know which field is right for you? Read on to find out.

Aerospace Engineer

With the recent celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo landing, it’s an exciting time to be an aerospace engineer. There’s an increased interest in space exploration. Plus, two billionaires are competing against each other, creating more opportunities.

If space doesn’t excite you, how about something closer to the ground? You could also work with airlines to create sleeker and more fuel-efficient aircraft.

Civil Engineer

A civil engineer is really what makes our country and our economy work. These engineers design, build and rebuild our infrastructure.

Any road, bridge, rail, or tunnel project requires the work of a civil engineer. They’re also vital in keeping our water and sewer systems running. It makes you wonder where we’d be as a society without them.

Microwave Engineer

Microwave engineering is similar to electronic engineers. They both deal with electronic components and how they operate.

Microwave engineers specialize in using short-wave signals between those electronic components. Here’s how they’ve changed your life. Wi-fi, Bluetooth, and GPS are just a few examples that utilize microwave technology.

Computer Engineer

One field of engineering that seems to have endless possibilities is computer engineering. Just about every industry relies heavily on computer technology to function.

Out of the different types of engineering, this field offers the broadest range. There are a number of things you can do with the field of study. You can create an entire networking infrastructure for a company or design the latest laptop devices.

Garment Engineer

You probably haven’t heard of a garment engineer. Have you heard of Coolmax or Lycra? Those fabrics didn’t grow from the ground. They were engineered.

Your job as a garment engineer is to marry the best of technology and fashion to create clothing. It can be something off the rack or something geared for elite athletes.

Choosing Your Path

With so many exciting choices, how do you choose a career path? There are two ways to go about it. The first is to pick a path and stick with it. The second route is to choose a career that offers a lot of flexibility.

If you know that engineering already aligns with one of your passions, then you should pursue that path. However, if you’re undecided, stick with a path that gives you the most options.

Different Types of Engineering Fields

Engineering seems like it’s a very specific field of study. When you look more closely, you’ll realize that there are many different types of engineering specializations to choose from.

You can apply your engineering skills to improve the lives of countless people. You could put people in space, create a new computing process, or make clothing that people fall in love with.
