Engineering, over the years, has proven to be one of the most important disciplines in our daily life as it deals with actual solutions to real problems. Theoreticians think of solutions, and engineers make those solutions into realities. Engineers are inventors and also do their own theorisation as they don’t depend fully on theoreticians. Let’s look at 10 engineering fields that will continue to be in demand and will change constantly.
In this industry, engineers are exposed to different kinds of chemicals for research and also to create new ones
It is a branch of engineering that deals with the design and operation of industrial chemical production facilities. Engineers are also involved in the process of researching and creating new chemical compounds and mix-ups. Modern chemical engineering is a big field right now as it gets into so many industries.
The numbers of manufacturing and processing fields chemical engineers can work in are huge. Such fields include: medical/pharmaceutical and healthcare, oil and gas, sustainable energy, food processing, preservation, electronics and microelectronics, advance material production, polymer, biotechnology, the military, aerospace, construction, automotive, nanotechnology and much more.

With the growing number of the human population, civil engineering is greatly needed but there is more to it than just building houses and offices
Things are changing very fast. Human needs are changing and with a growing population, more facilities for housing will be in demand. Costs are becoming a massive challenge and income disparity is constantly growing. New ways to house humans are needed. This will be partially the responsibilities of civil engineers.
But, civil engineering isn’t only about housing and construction problems. It deals with geotechnical engineering, structure engineering, transportation and roads, environmental solutions, urban planning and so much more.

Mechanical engineers work in different fields and they work on machines
Sometimes, it is misunderstood that mechanical engineers are fancy car mechanics. That is definitely not true. Mechanical engineers are trained in a multi-disciplinary field and they are often involved in the design, development, and manufacturing of highly sophisticated machines.
A mechanical engineer can work in various fields including aerospace, manufacturing and production, automotive, control and instrumentations, nuclear energy, water purification and more.

Automotive engineers are the people that determine whether your car is safe for you to drive or not
When someone purchases a car, that person is getting a product that was researched, designed, developed and contributed to the manufacturing of various components of that vehicle. Automotive engineers also develop the subsystems of vehicles and carry out testing and failure investigation and have much more duties to ensure a safe and efficient vehicle is delivered to the buyer.
Jobs that are directly related to Automotive Engineering:
Computer engineers can work in software development, user behaviour analysis and business analysis
Computer engineers have the world at their finger tips if they possess the right skills and acquire the right knowledge.
Computer engineers can work in the design, development and production of computer hardware and software. They can work in software development and analysis, business analysis, data scientists, game development, consultation business, systems development, user behaviour analysis and more.
Jobs that are related to a Computer Engineering degree:
Computers are becoming more and more advance, according to Moore’s law, so software engineers are a great demand in the workplace
Every machine has two major parts: the hardware – which is the physical aspect of the machine, and the software – which is the set of signals, data, and algorithms that govern the interaction between all the different components of the machine. Software is usually associated with computers, but it is actually linked to anything that is considered computerised or carry out logical processes.
Computers are changing very fast. If Moore’s law holds, computer power doubles every 18 months. Which means the more powerful the computer becomes; more sophisticated software and application will be required.
Jobs that are directly related to Software Engineering:
A petroleum engineer is responsible for processing and recovering crude oil while reducing the cost and its impact to the environment
It is part of every stage in the production of the oil and gas industry. Part of the responsibilities of a petroleum engineer is to maximize the recovery and processing of crude oil while minimizing cost and maintaining less negative impact on the environment.
A petroleum engineer can be a petroleum geologist, reservoir engineer, production engineer, drilling engineer and other.

If you are into robots and Artificial Intelligence then Mechatronic Engineering could be the course for you
For those of us who don’t know what mechatronic engineering is, it’s the design and development of automated machines. It is the combination of mechanical, electronics, and software engineering disciplines to create complex machines. It is different from the three disciplines that are intertwined within this field and also very different from automation engineering.
Mechatronic engineers are responsible for developing deep understanding of these complicated machines in ways very little people can.
Mechatronic engineers can work in artificial intelligence, aviation, computer engineering, control systems data communication systems, energy fields, space and astronautics, modelling and simulations, and many more fields.
Direct Jobs for Mechatronic Engineering Degree:
Working in this field, you are exposed to different kinds of signals and you’ll need to know how to control and manipulate them
If there is a piece of electronic, it needs electrical signals to work. Electronics convert analogue signals to digital signals for better manipulation and control by software. These engineers can work anywhere. Areas of employment include: aerospace, broadcasting, electrical, electronics, IT, networking, nuclear, satellite communication, and much more.

Graduates from this course are able to work in any sector since telecommunications are an important aspect in our daily lives
When someone makes a phone call using a mobile device or sends a text message, the call or the text bounces over to the communication towers, then possibly satellites, or through massive underground cable network and reaches the phone pairing on the other side, wherever it might be – at the speed of light.
Telecommunication engineers are responsible for the largest portion of that process of data communication.
Telecommunication engineers can work in almost any industry – as long as telecommunication is concerned, including aviation, aeronautics, space, telecommunications, data communication and analysis, manufacturing, technical solutions and much more.
The prospects for each field may vary depending on the expertise and skills an individual holds and the market is thirsty for expertise and highly skilled individuals.
