VGM's Careers in Engineering
The different types of engineering fields are as numerous and diverse as the skill and knowledge base of engineering professionals. Building bridges requires structural engineering knowledge; automobile design needs mechanical engineers; and communications technicians must be trained in electrical engineering. Today, computers and artificial intelligence aid engineers in performing many tasks, thereby increasing design efficiency, safety, and overall effectiveness; however, there continues to be a need for talented engineers in every corner of the industry.
The field of engineering is a world where design, mechanics, and craftsmanship can be invented, brought together, and honed to create something as small as a computer chip or as large as a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, from a simple time-lock mechanism to the complexities of the space shuttle. Engineering is a field in which imagination meets reality. Those working in it reap immense satisfaction and accomplishment from their profession.
Inside, you will find up-to-date salary statistics and descriptions of the work culture that paint a comprehensive picture of what to expect on the job. Careers in Engineering also includes advice on where and how to fulfill educational requirements as well as the names and addresses of professional organizations for further information--everything you need to enter the exciting field of engineering!
