Engineering Disciplines

Engineering IS everywhere… with another new engineering discipline probably being defined right now…

Traditionally engineering has been divided into the main four broad disciplines:

  • Chemical — chemicals & processes
  • Civil — large structures, water & sewerage, geotechnics, environment, mining, construction
  • Electrical — energy, electronics, power, telecommunications
  • Mechanical — machines & engines, transport

There are over 200 different engineering disciplines, there are lots of overlaps; there are Certificates, Diplomas, Trade qualifications, and Degrees, all of which can get you into engineering. Find out more on www.myfuture.edu.au.
