Engineering as a field of study includes learning how to use math and science to safely design and build everything from simple machines to skyscrapers. Students should expect to learn a great deal about computers, electrical systems, physics, and much more. Engineering degrees can be specialized to emphasize computers, structural design, mechanical systems or other concentrations. There are also specialties in chemical engineering and civil engineering.
In this section you’ll find academic lectures and related material designed to help you better understand the field of engineering, and what it takes to pursue an engineering degree.
