What is Engineering?
There are many types of Engineering, all of which are focussed on making a better world. Studying Engineering can lead to exciting career prospects and top salaries across a wide range of industries.
Engineers are shaping the future by applying their skills to almost everything you can think of, from medical to transport, sustainable energy to food production, robotics to construction, clean water to 3D printing. There really is no limit to what Engineers can do.
Engineering is the power behind innovation and new product developments. Engineers identify a problem, and come up with a solution – often creating something completely new in the process.
