Engineering

Petroleum, Aeronautical, and others.

What I want to do

It would be really cool if I did engineering, especially aeronautical engineering. If I become an aeronautical engineer, I'll will probably design a new flying hotel. Imagine that happening.

What is Engineering?

Engineering is the application of scientific, economic, social, and practical knowledge in order to design, build, maintain, and improve structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes.

What does a Petroleum engineer do?

A petroleum engineer is employed by an oil company to design, test, and implement methods to extract petroleum products from the earth and sea floor. These engineers are involved in locating the dig site, building the machines that perform the extraction, and overseeing the removal and processing of the petroleum itself. Education requirements to become a petroleum engineer include earning an undergraduate engineering degree from a college or university. Some positions and companies may require additional education in the form of a master's degree or doctorate in petroleum engineering. It is important for engineers to have a strong background in geology, physics, mathematics, and computer programming.

What does a Aeronautical engineer do?

An aeronautical engineer oversees the research and development of different types of aircraft. He or she works with advanced computer software to design new crafts, create detailed schematics, and conduct simulated test runs. A person who wants to become an aeronautical engineer typically needs to obtain an advanced degree in the specialty. Engineering students develop the skills and knowledge they need in advanced physics, mathematics, computer science, and chemistry classes.
