Alphabetical List of Engineering Program Disciplines
Application of science and technology to improve agricultural (primarily crop & livestock) production & yields. Combines multiple engineering fields (mechanical, chemical, civil). With the advancement of GPS and yield control, agricultural engineering has taken off over the past decade. The field works often with the bioengineering and chemical engineering fields, as well as electronics and mechanical engineering.
Building design & construction, primarily focused on utility. In some places, this degree is also known as architecture, although many engineers joke that an architect is someone that couldn’t handle engineering school. Utilizes multiple fields: structural, electrical, construction, and mechanical engineering. Architectural engineers tend to focus more on structural engineering than architects, who focus more on usability and aesthetics. Of course there are always exceptions.
Applying chemistry, physics, and computer technology and life sciences to solve problems. Uses molecular biology, biostatistics, and much research to find solutions in the food, health, environment and life sciences industries. Bioengineering tends to be synonymous with biotechnology, which is the fusion of biology and technology to create more useful items, such as plastics, other materials, and even food that produces higher yields.
Combination of chemistry and physics and biochemistry to produce and use chemicals and materials for real-world use. Many chemical engineers work on projects for very long periods of time, researching and testing to produce materials, food, or combinations that help make people’s lives better. Typically chemical engineers are involved with a lot of experimentation.
Design and construction of infrastructure, including roads, bridges, and buildings. One of the oldest and most stable engineering disciplines. Civil engineers can also work as structural engineers. Often civil engineers end up working for the government, or their state’s Department of Transportation, but can also work for private companies in a number of different specialized areas, such as roads, railroads, or even sewer systems.
