If you are interested in things that fly, hover, or blast off, this is the category for you. Aerospace engineering deals with planes, rockets, jets, helicopters, spacecrafts, missiles, and more.
In order to be a recognized Aerospace Engineer there are a few things that you must do. All Aerospace Engineers must have a Bachelors Degree (4 year degree) to enter into their field. Some programs that Aerospace engineers enter do require a Professional Engineer (PE) license. This is a separate certification from a 4 year degree.
Some of the career opportunities in the Jet Motorsports industry are:
Designing Jet engines for Jet Cars
Designing aerodynamic bodies for race cars
Aerospace Industries Association.
AHS International - The Vertical Flight Society.
American Astronautical Society.
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)
Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International.
Experimental Aircraft Association.
If you are interested in how things work. Cars, engines, machines, bikes, and more. Mechanical Engineering is about how almost anything works and how to design and optimize it for human use. This is definitely a degree for people who ask the question of "How?" This degree is one of the most broad, allowing for many career pathways to be available.
In order to be a recognized mechanical engineer you must complete a bachelor's degree from an accredited engineering program. There is also a license that mechanical engineers must obtain by passing the Fundamentals of Engineering exam. This exam is offered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying. After 4 years of working mechanical engineers can then work towards being a Professional Engineer.
Some of the Career Opportunities in the Jet Motorsports Industry:
Designing of Jet Cars
Rebuilding of Jet Engines
Jet Turbine Test Platform Handler
American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Institution of Mechanical Engineers
International Academy for Production Engineering (CIRP)
Society of Automotive Engineers
Society of Manufacturing Engineers
While it is true that most engineers are in the business of problem solving, this variation gets a bit more specific. This major is focused on figuring out the needs of patients (typically in a hospital setting) and finding and designing the most ideal solutions for those needs. This type of engineering requires a lot of biological studies. It is important to understand that the majority of the problems being solved in this area depend on biological systems.
In order to be a recognized Biomedical Engineer you are required to have a four year Bachelor's degree. You can also get up to a Doctorate in Biomedical Engineering. Some of the career options are:
Medical Device Manufacturers
Medical Device Designer
Biomedical Equipment Engineer
What's cool about this major is that it combines two fields of study into one. Biomechanical Engineering combines Biology with Mechanical Engineering. In the most recent research studies Biomechanical students have even been working with genetic engineering.
The education required to be a Biomechanical Engineer is a minimum of a bachelor's degree (4 years). Many universities also offer higher degrees for this particular focus.
Some of the career opportunities in this field are:
If you are interested in making new materials, compounds, fuels, or anything else along these lines, then chemical engineering is the degree for you. Chemical engineering uses chemical formulas to create useful discoveries that can be used commercially.
Entry level positions in chemical engineering requires a Bachelors Degree (4 years). There are also a lot of different certification programs that go along with this degree.
Some of the career opportunities available are:
Sports Drink Creator
Fibers and Polymers
Electrical Engineers work on answering electrical questions. The questions range from small gadgets, all the way to airplanes, and more. It is important to remember that in our Jet cars we have wiring throughout the entire car that has to be carefully done. There are so many different industries that use electrical engineers! The possibilities for careers are endless.
Requirements: a Bachelor's Degree (4 years)
Computer Engineer obviously deals with computers, but more specifically is divided into hardware or software fields. A computer engineer can learn to design innovative new parts in technology. There are opportunities in nearly every industry for computer engineers, from retail companies to aerospace companies.
