Study Engineering Courses Abroad

Introduction to Engineering

Engineering is the application of maths and science to create and build innovative solutions to complex problems in order to improve people’s lives. By applying scientific, economic, and mathematical knowledge, engineers work to design, build and improve all sorts of creations such as buildings, cars, laptops, and smartphones. Without the skillful work of an engineer, these inventions would not exist today.

If you like to understand how things work, enjoy solving complex puzzles, and scored well in maths and science, pursuing an Engineering degree might be right for you!

By studying Engineering courses abroad, you’ll learn to apply maths and scientific principles to solve various engineering problems and design solutions to health, safety, societal, and environmental concerns.

Fields of Engineering

Engineering is an extremely broad discipline with several fields you can choose to specialize in. Here are the four main branches of engineering:

Mechanical Engineering

Deals with the design, construction, and maintenance process of mechanical devices and systems such as vehicles, industrial equipment and machines to improve on the technology. 

Civil Engineering

Civil engineers produce society’s essential infrastructure, from roads, bridges, buildings, transportation railways, and water supply systems.

Electrical & Electronic Engineering

Deals with the operation and development of electrical systems, machinery, and electronic devices to improve and power technological developments. 

Chemical Engineering

Deals with the process of converting chemicals and raw materials into useful substances for our everyday living, such as fuel, food, and plastic production.
