  • Dentistry

    The dentist is one of the most prestigious medical specialties, whose representatives are engaged in the treatment of teeth and other organs of the maxillofacial area.

    Dentistry, also known as dental medicine and oral medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity, commonly in the dentition but also the oral mucosa, and of adjacent and related structures and tissues, particularly in the maxillofacial (jaw and facial) area. Although primarily associated with teeth among the general public, the field of dentistry or dental medicine is not limited to teeth but includes other aspects of the craniofacial complex including the temporomandibular joint and other supporting, muscular, lymphatic, nervous, vascular, and anatomical structures.

     

    Dentistry is often also understood to subsume the now largely defunct medical specialty of stomatology (the study of the mouth and its disorders and diseases) for which reason the two terms are used interchangeably in certain region.

     

    Dental treatments are carried out by a dental team, which often consists of a dentist and dental auxiliaries (dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians, as well as dental therapists). Most dentists either work in private practices (primary care), dental hospitals or (secondary care) institutions (prisons, armed forces bases, etc.).

     

    Faculty of Dentistry is a one of the most important degrees whose task is to build the ability to apply the acquired knowledge, skills, understanding the essence of general, professional and practical training of a dentist in the field of healthcare.

     

    The main components of the educational process at the Educational-professional program “Dentistry” are practical exercises at the University Clinic, during which the opportunity is given to master modern preventive and therapeutic diagnostic dental technologies.

    The teaching staff ensures the implementation of the curriculum built on the European credit transfer system-accumulative credits. We use innovative teaching methods, modern forms of control and certification.

     

    For educational process the high-tech equipment and labs are using:
    own clinical base, phantom class of therapeutic dentistry, orthopedics, orthodontics classes, dental laboratory, clinic and dental surgery, implantology cabinets, dental office, cabinets of physics, chemistry, multimedia classes.

    The practical training for students is organized by University on the basis of dental clinics and centers.

     

    Specializations:

    • Cosmetic dentistry- Focuses on improving the appearance of the mouth, teeth and smile.
    • Oral and maxillofacial pathology– The study, diagnosis, and sometimes the treatment of oral and maxillofacial related diseases.
    • Oral and maxillofacial radiology– The study and radiologic interpretation of oral and maxillofacial diseases.
    • Oral and maxillofacial surgery (also called oral surgery) – Extractions, implants, and surgery of the jaws, mouth and face.
    • Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics – The straightening of teeth and modification of midface and mandibular growth.
    • Periodontology (also called periodontics) – The study and treatment of diseases of the periodontium (non-surgical and surgical) as well as placement and maintenance of dental implants
    • Prosthodontics (also called prosthetic dentistry) – Dentures, bridges and the restoration of implants

     

    General dentists are responsible for the diagnosis, treatment, management and overall coordination of a patient’s oral health. General dentists are trained in all dental procedures but choose not to specialize in only one specific area of dentistry. Dental specialists are dentists who have received additional education and training after receiving licensure as a general dentist. A dental education also gives you access to other career paths, like working in a hospital emergency room, conducting advanced laboratory research, teaching future dentists or even traveling the world with international health and relief organizations.

Moreover, choosing a future career for students in the health profession is of great interest for educators and admission committees, particularly in the field of dentistry.

     

    Students who choose dentistry as a professional career demonstrate a wide range of motivational factors and since the dominant motivational factors may vary over time and between countries, seeking an understanding of current motivations to enter the dental health care workforce is critical to health care systems and may result in major changes for policies in dental education.

     

    Dentistry provides a wide range of career and business opportunities as a general practitioner as well as a specialist. Many factors contribute to the students’ decision with regards to motivation and the reason to choose a specific medical specialty. Whether one chooses a specific specialty due to advice from friends or family, admiration of a certain mentor or genuine interest in the specialty, there are several incentives and factors that converge to result in the final decision. While motivations do vary according to specialties, they may include lifestyle choices, a possibility of private practice, an interest in specific diseases, a varied scope of practice, an interest in research and teaching, or to gain a higher income. It is also imperative to realize the importance of future specialty choices and the impact these decisions have on the dentists’ workforce.

     

    With huge strides being made in the field of dentistry, this has become a rapidly evolving and expanding profession offering dental practitioners a wealth of opportunities, challenges and rewards.

     

    As a Doctor of Dental Medicine, you will be part of the primary healthcare professions on the front line of wellness and disease prevention. Dentists are often the first health care professionals to identify and recognize a wide range of diseases, including hypertension and oral cancer. While the primary role of a dentist would be the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the teeth, gums and mouth, these oral problems often reveal other underlying health issues that may require further looking into by a specialist.

    Dentists help patients improve their appearance and boost their self-confidence by using a wide variety of cosmetic dental procedures. Trauma surgery, tissue grafts, laser surgery or dental implants are just some of the procedures performed by dentists to help restore, repair or maintain teeth and oral tissues that have been damaged or lost due to diseases or accidents. These services can do much to make patients feel better about themselves and their smiles.

     

    Dentists provide an important health care service and are highly respected within the community. The work a dentist does goes beyond the dentist chair as dental professionals teach their patients how to prevent disease and achieve oral health.

     

    A dentist’s typical day is diverse and interesting as they interact with people across all ages, personalities and cultures. From computers to magnetic resonance imaging and more, dentists utilize the latest technology in diagnosing and treating patients so no two days are ever the same.

     

    Dentistry provides a wealth of opportunities in a variety of private and public settings including private practice, public health, research, administration and teaching. This is a profession that allows you to be your own boss. As a dentist, you can balance your professional and personal life to meet your personal needs and desires.

     

    The demand for dental care has grown greatly over the past few years and it looks all set to continue growing with the increasing number of older adults who are looking to maintain a healthy set of teeth for longer. With the growing awareness of the importance of regular dental care, the need for specialized dental services such as cosmetic dental procedures and geriatric dental care has also increased manifold.

     

    Last but not least, a career in this field is personally fulfilling. In helping people maintain their health and appearance, dentists perform an essential public service to help people. To serve the present and future oral health needs of their patients, dentists thrive on the challenge of a lifetime of learning. Tomorrow’s dentists can expect to be at the cutting edge of high technology, making the practice of dentistry even more rewarding and exciting than it is today.

  • Pharmacy

     

    Over the decades, pharmacy profession has expanded and diversified greatly. Today, it is not limited to hospitals and retails but has a different scenario altogether. The pharmacy profession has got several areas which had lead to enhanced way of serving patients and had become more challenging. And, to reach that stage, pharmacy course is the starting point.

    Pharmacy courses are designed to teach students all aspects of drug therapy in addition to patient care, communication with both patients and health care providers. It also focuses on professional ethics, business management and concept of public health. Additionally, students of pharmacy can gain real world experience working with licensed pharmacist in several settings.

    Today pharmacy includes clinical services, providing drug information and reviewing, compounding and dispensing medication.

    Pharmacy is a diverse and rewarding career, with opportunities for patient care, scientific research and innovation. Pharmacists can work in a myriad of professional settings. The majority of pharmacists (45 percent) work in an independent or retail chain community pharmacy and provide counseling to patients on the use of prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications. Pharmacists work in numerous other healthcare environments as well, including hospitals, nursing homes, managed care organizations, the pharmaceutical industry, colleges and schools and the federal government. Pharmacists play key leadership roles in all aspects of the healthcare system.

    Pharmacists play a key role in helping patients feel better and get well as quickly as possible. Patients do best when pharmacists are part of their healthcare teams because pharmacists are the medication specialists. Pharmacists improve medication adherence. They are culturally competent healthcare providers who communicate effectively to evaluate many factors that affect a patient’s ability to take a medication. These include diet, lifestyle, transportation, language barriers and much more.

    Some of the main pharmacy specializations you can expect to encounter include:

     

    Pharmacology

     
    The field of pharmacology is the study of how drugs interact with a living body. Within pharmacology, topics could include learning about the therapeutic and toxic effects of different drugs and poisons; drug absorption and how drugs interact with different foods and nutrients; and methods of drug delivery and targeting. It’s also possible to take an entire degree program devoted to the study of pharmacology.

     

    Clinical practice

     
    A major focus of most pharmacy degrees, clinical practice courses aim to prepare students to provide care directly to patients, including diagnoses, prescriptions, advice, and good all-round communication and support. As well as learning how to approach a range of different types of health issue and gaining a strong foundation in pharmaceutical care and therapeutics, students may also study current national frameworks governing the provision of pharmacy services, and may have the opportunity to gain some practical experience.

     

    Microbiology & immunology

     
    Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms – important within pharmacy, as these microbes can cause illnesses. Within microbiology, further specializations include virology (the study of viruses), bacteriology (the study of bacteria) and mycology (the study of fungi). Microbiology is often taught alongside immunology; this is the study of the immune system, including diseases resulting from failures of the immune system, the use of immunotherapy, and the relationship between the immune system and stages of life such as pregnancy and early development.

     

    Drug development

     
    Another important field of pharmacy is drug development – the study of the processes involved in creating new drugs and bringing them to market. This may include learning how to conduct pre-clinical research and various stages of clinical trials, as well as studying relevant manufacturing and commercial processes, regulatory issues and assessing financial viability. This field is closely aligned with pharmaceutical chemistry, which is concerned with the chemical side of new drug development.

     

    Pharmaceutical technology

     
    The field of pharmaceutical technology, offered by some universities as a master’s level specialization, focuses on the various modern technologies used in the pharmaceutical sector. This is likely to include opportunities for hands-on experience of the equipment and processes used in drug development, as well as learning about the evolving demands and challenges facing the growing global pharmaceutical industry.

     

    Obesity & weight management

     
    You could also specialize in obesity and weight management, with some universities now offering this as a separate master’s degree. Here you’ll study all aspects of obesity, from the individual level through to the problem in its large-scale social context. You’ll learn about various strategies for weight management interventions, policy formulation and implementation. This specialization could lead to a career in a governmental agency or local authority, public health body, or in the commercial sector developing new products and programs.

     

    Why to choose Pharmacy as a career?

     

    Pharmacists work with other health care professionals to maximize health outcomes. Numerous studies have proven that the presence of a pharmacist on hospital rounds as a full member of the patient care team has been shown to prevent medication errors and reduce costs. Pharmacists provide optimal management of medication for chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma, hypertension, etc. The collaboration of healthcare professionals, such as physicians and pharmacists, can help to ensure that patients properly take their medications as prescribed and avoid any harmful effects.

     

    One of the many exciting developments in the pharmacy profession is the growth of a discipline, known as pharmacogenomics. Genetic variations in genes can affect a body’s response to a drug. In the future, specialists in this area hope to sequence the entire human gene in each individual. Pharmacists and other healthcare providers will be able to use that information to select the best medicines, treat diseases earlier than now possible, or prevent them entirely with individually-tailored drug therapies.

     

    State-of-the-Art Technology in Pharmacy

     
    Digital innovations in pharmacy include electronic prescriptions, robotics for central prescription processing and nationwide prescription monitoring programs, as well as pharmaceutical research. These technological advances enhance efficiency and help to promote patient safety. Pharmacists use these same tools to help prioritize work, manage the dispensing process and spend more time with patients. By law, pharmacists must oversee automated dispensing processes for quality control purposes. Pharmacists can provide innovative approaches to medication management, including recommended therapies, and the identification and resolution of problems with the aid of state-of-the-art technology.

    • Organizational skills: Good recordkeeping and other organizational skills are critical in both medical and business settings.
    • Patience: Pediatricians may work for long periods with patients who need special attention. Persons who fear medical treatment may require more patience.
    • Physical stamina: Pediatricians should be comfortable lifting or turn disabled patients or perform other physical tasks. Surgeons may spend a great deal of time bending over patients during surgery.
    • Problem-solving skills: Pediatricians need to evaluate patients’ symptoms and administer the appropriate treatments. They need to do this quickly if a patient’s life is threatened.

     

    Pediatricians have diverse roles that may include prevention, screening, diagnosis and management of health conditions in young people. They may be involved with acute, chronic and preventative medical care, with an emphasis on the overall physical, emotional and mental health of all children.

     

    It is important for pediatricians to consider all aspects of the child’s health, including their overall wellbeing as they grow and develop. They can help to improve a number of health outcomes for young people, such as reducing mortality and infection, while also encouraging healthy lifestyle choices to maintain good health.

     

    Pediatricians have specific knowledge about the health and medical care of young people. As the bodies of children grow and develop into adulthood, they have certain needs, which are distinct from the needs of adults. For this reason, a pediatrician has a valuable role on the medical care team to advocate for the best health decisions for all children.

  • Nursing

    Nursing is a part of the health care, including activities to promote public health, prevent diseases, provide psychosocial care and care for people with physical and mental diseases.

     

    Nursing is the glue that holds a patient’s health care journey together. Across the entire patient experience, and wherever there is someone in need of care, nurses work tirelessly to identify and protect the needs of the individual. 

     

    Beyond the time-honored reputation for compassion and dedication lies a highly specialized profession, which is constantly evolving to address the needs of society. From ensuring the most accurate diagnoses to the ongoing education of the public about critical health issues; nurses are indispensable in safeguarding public health.

     

    Nursing can be described as both an art and a science; a heart and a mind. At its heart, lies a fundamental respect for human dignity and an intuition for a patient’s needs. The mind supports this, in the form of rigorous core learning. Due to the vast range of specialisms and complex skills in the nursing profession, each nurse will have specific strengths, passions, and expertise.

     

    However, nursing has a unifying ethos:  In assessing a patient, nurses do not just consider test results. Through the critical thinking exemplified in the nursing process (see below), nurses use their judgment to integrate objective data with subjective experience of a patient’s biological, physical and behavioral needs. This ensures that every patient, from city hospital to community health center; state prison to summer camp, receives the best possible care regardless of who they are, or where they may be.

     

    In a field as varied as nursing, there is no typical answer. Responsibilities can range from making acute treatment decisions to providing inoculations in schools. The key unifying characteristic in every role is the skill and drive that it takes to be a nurse. Through long-term monitoring of patients’ behavior and knowledge-based expertise, nurses are best placed to take an all-encompassing view of a patient’s wellbeing.

     

    Nurses work in a variety of settings and specialties. They may choose to practice in hospitals, nursing homes, medical offices, ambulatory care, occupational health, and community health centers, schools, clinics, camps, and shelters.

     

    Specialties

     

    Nurses perform many professional tasks which may differ based on where they work or what area they specialize in. Nursing responsibilities include tasks such as:
     

    • performing physical exams
    • obtaining medical/health histories
    • providing patients with health promotion, counseling and education
    • administering medications, wound care, and other health interventions
    • coordinating patient care collectively with other members of the healthcare team
    • supervising staff such as LPN’s and nursing assistants
    • taking part in critical decision making
    • research responsibilities

    The degree they hold may also dictate which are of specialty they are competent in practicing in. There are over 100 nursing specialties, including:

     

    • Ambulatory
    • Burn care
    • Camp or school
    • Diabetes care
    • Emergency nursing
    • Flight/transport
    • Forensic nursing
    • Geriatrics
    • Home health
    • Hospice
    • Labor and delivery
    • Medical surgical care
    • Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
    • Nephrology
    • Neuroscience

    • Psychiatric care
    • Radiology
    • Rheumatology
    • Telemetry

    • Trauma

    Why Choose a Career in Nursing?

    Nurses have many different motivations for choosing their career, but the majority say it is their love for working with people and their desire to care for others that makes nursing a great fit. If you want a rewarding career, where every day can bring a different challenge and you have the opportunity to improve patients’ lives, then nursing is a great choice.

     

    As we look deeper into the role of a nurse and into factors affecting the healthcare industry, it is clear that there are many additional reasons to choose a career in nursing, besides caring for others. Continue reading to explore some of the lesser-known benefits, and hear what established nurses have to say about their own career choice.

     

    • Growing demand results in higher wages, job security and job satisfaction

  • International Relations

     

    Are you interested in learning about different cultures and peoples around the world? Would you like to study, live, or work abroad some day? Do you wonder why some countries are wealthy, while others are poor and some places are war-torn while others are peaceful? Would you like to understand how different regional civilizations have evolved and how these characteristics continue to affect people today? If you answered yes to any of these questions, International Relations may be the major for you. Course of International Relations is a unique course of study because it combines classes from three different departments – economics, history, and political science to create a coherent curriculum that allows students to develop their understandings of both different areas of the world (“area studies”) and the nature of interactions between people, groups, nation-states, and international organizations (“globalization”).

     

    International relations students have many different strengths. Some have a flair for foreign languages, others are fascinated by particular regions of the world and still another set of students may have a long-standing interest in an aspect of global affairs. Some students are attracted to the major because it allows them to combine courses from multiple departments, allowing them to study world regions or phenomena (like conflict, revolution, economic development, or human rights) from different disciplinary perspectives.

     

    International Relations is the study of the relations of states with each other and with international organizations and certain subnational entities — for example, bureaucracies, political parties, and interest groups. Viewpoints from other academic disciplines are often taught, including political science, geography, history, economics, law, sociology, psychology, and philosophy.

     

    Our world could do with a little more love and care right now. From war to poverty, deforestation to epidemics, we are living in demanding times and facing detrimental challenges.

     

    The world needs individuals who have great ambition and want to make a positive impact. Studying international relations is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of global issues. It’s an intriguing and important subject which places great emphasis on economics, culture, education, and political science and examines the impact they have on society. You’ll also learn how and why nations, governments and individuals respond accordingly to such issues.

     

    International Relations introduce you to the world of politics and the social-historical impact of global development. You will learn about the different political systems and governing policies around the world, understanding how they connect with a broad range of international issues, such as human rights, global poverty, climate change, global ethics, etc.

     

    During a Bachelor’s in International Relations, you can expect to take classes on Economics, Politics and Government, Explaining Society, Public Policy, Business Behaviors, Global Conflicts, Global Security, Environmental Sustainability, etc. You won’t study all these subjects, but most undergraduate programs combine them in various ways and have a different approach based on their curriculum and academic objectives.

     

    There are other titles used to refer to International Relations (IR), such as International Studies, Global Studies, International Affairs, or Global Affairs. Because International Relations is a relatively new discipline, the academic approach, curriculums, and courses can vary significantly from one university to another.

     

    Why to study International Relations course?

     

    • Address contemporary global issues

     

    We live in a world where the overall living standard is higher than it has ever been. Yet, humanity is facing numerous problems and challenges despite our constant technological advancement and discoveries. Think in terms of poverty, hunger, inequality, environmental concerns, human trafficking, human rights, and so on.

     

    After studying an International Relations degree, you’ll be able to work with local governments, private or public institutions, or even NGOs and try to address these problems.

     

    Whether you will help to implement a new public policy or collaborate with other people to implement welfare projects and events, you will improve people’s lives, change their environment and reduce the suffering and injustice which are present in the world.

     

    It’s a massive task, extremely challenging and demanding; but at the end of most of your days, you’ll feel fulfilled and proud of your work.

     

    • Develop key transferable skills

     

    The skills you’ll develop while studying International Relations can be applied in many other areas and industries. Even if you have a change of heart and decide that you no longer want to work in the International Relations field, your abilities will help you succeed in any other career.

     

    Here are some of the most important skills you’ll develop and improve as an International Relations student:

     

    • Public speaking, verbal & written communication
    • Gather, organize and analyze data to gain insights
    • Cooperate with people who have different personalities, jobs, and goals
    • Evaluate ideas, concepts, and proposals and offer constructive feedback
    • Find solutions considering different cultures, interests, and mentalities
    • Handle conflicts, find common ground, and reach mutual agreements
    • Enjoy a stable and lucrative career

     

    International Relations jobs are in high demand. This is not surprising, considering the ongoing development of the globalization process and the way in which companies cooperate across borders and try to expand in new markets and countries.

  • International Economics

     

    Economics, at its very heart, is the study of people. It seeks to explain what drives human behavior, decisions and reactions when faced with difficulties or successes. Economics is a discipline which combines politics, sociology, psychology and history.

    When you study economics, you gain a toolkit of skills, approaches and ways of thinking that you can apply to a wide range of problems. Economics is one of the central disciplines underpinning the study of business and management and public policy.

    An economics degree gives you a high level of mathematical and statistical skills and the ability to apply economic principles and models to problems in business, finance and the public sector. More broadly, economic concepts can be applied to understand the logic of complicated data, to see how things relate to each other, and to see the broader context.

    Some of the specific skills you develop include:

    • Communication – presenting ideas in a well-defined framework and supported by evidence that uses complex data.
    • Numeracy – handling complex data and techniques of mathematical and statistical analysis.
    • Problem-solving.
    • Analytical skills.

     

    There are careers that use specific knowledge of economics, for example banks, insurance, accountancy firms, businesses and in government. These jobs may involve identifying financial risks or making decisions about where a company or a government should invest its resources in the future, or even how to design a bidding platform for eBay. There are also roles for economists in think tanks and consultancies that advise governments and companies on public policy, such as how to deal with the Greek debt crisis.

    More broadly, an economics degree helps prepare you for careers that require numerical, analytical and problem-solving skills – for example in business planning, marketing, research and management. Economics helps you to think strategically and make decisions to optimize the outcome.

    Especially in demand are people who have studied Economics and Finance as they are particularly well-prepared for jobs in banking and the financial sector, such as in accountancy firms.

    The well-developed methodologies used in the economics profession have helped the subject expand into providing tools for other disciplines, such as politics, law, health, education, management, and many others. Some worry that by using the approaches of economics, the assumption is being made that people are rational in the way they behave. To counter this, economists are bringing in insights from behavioral science, psychology, and neuroscience.

    The definition of economics is the study of how goods and services are produced, distributed, and consumed. In short, economics is the study of supply and demand. It is the theory of how markets work and wealth is distributed including how scarce resources are allocated. Economics is not just how the stock market is doing. Rather, economics refers to how people, businesses and countries choose to spend their money. This can be viewed in both a macroeconomics and microeconomics sense.

    Macroeconomics refers to the study of the overall economy from a wide point of view, for example, how an industry is doing, a country’s gross domestic product output, gas prices, national debt and more. Microeconomics refers to economics on a smaller scale, such as how a family decides to spend its money or how a business establishes prices.

    Economic theory seeks to explain the production and consumption of goods. Economics is widely studied around the world as researchers seek to better understand the impact of certain policies on the economy. For example, this can include studying the effect of gas prices going up, the effect of people incurring larger debt, the effect of government health-care programs, and more. One of the most famous economic theories is Keynesian economic theory named after John Keynes who suggested that government monetary and fiscal policy could stimulate business and increase employment.

    Managerial economics seeks to help business managers make logical decisions. It is the allocation of scarce resources in ways that best help a business succeed, for example, what goods and services should be produced and at what cost, or what markets should a firm enter or exit.

    International economics is the study of how good and services move across borders such as how tariffs affect trade, how exchange rates influence the movement of goods, or how trade quotas affect a market.

    Monetary economics is the framework of studying how institutions affect employment, commodity prices, interest rates, wages, production, and more.

    Behavioral economics is the study of how psychology affects economic decision making. Economic theory states that humans will make rational decisions whereas behavioral economics seeks to understand why humans make decisions that are not economically rational.

    Applied economics refers to the application of economic theories to real world scenarios to help predict outcomes.

    Taking a course in economics can help you understand a wide range of topics that drive economic policy and financial decision making. Learn about the principles of economics including both macroeconomics and microeconomics. Study theories of economic growth, economic policy, economic development, socioeconomic policy, risk management, debt sustainability, pricing models, and more.

    There is no doubt that to be a great economist, one has to be able to master the methods used in the profession, and have good maths and statistical skills to do this.

    You also need to be interested in the world around you from history, to politics, to international affairs and consumer behavior in your country and worldwide, as these all impact on how individuals, companies and governments behave and make decisions.

  • Computer Engineering

     

    Computer engineering is a branch of engineering that integrates several fields of computer science and electronic engineering required to develop computer hardware and software. Computer engineers usually have training in electronic engineering (or electrical engineering), software design, and hardware-software integration instead of only software engineering or electronic engineering. Computer engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing, from the design of individual microcontrollers, microprocessors, personal computers, and supercomputers, to circuit design. This field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems themselves work but also how they integrate into the larger picture.

    Usual tasks involving computer engineers include writing software and firmware for embedded microcontrollers, designing VLSI chips, designing analog sensors, designing mixed signal circuit boards, and designing operating systems. Computer engineers are also suited for robotics research, which relies heavily on using digital systems to control and monitor electrical systems like motors, communications, and sensors.

    In many institutions of higher learning, computer engineering students are allowed to choose areas of in-depth study in their junior and senior year because the full breadth of knowledge used in the design and application of computers is beyond the scope of an undergraduate degree. Other institutions may require engineering students to complete one or two years of general engineering before declaring computer engineering as their primary focus.

    Computer engineering is referred to as computer science and engineering at some universities. Most entry-level computer engineering jobs require at least a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering (or computer science and engineering). Typically, one must learn an array of mathematics such as calculus, algebra and trigonometry and some computer science classes. Sometimes a degree in electronic engineering is accepted, due to the similarity of the two fields. Because hardware engineers commonly work with computer software systems, a strong background in computer programming is necessary. According to BLS, “a computer engineering major is similar to electrical engineering but with some computer science courses added to the curriculum”. Some large firms or specialized jobs require a master’s degree.

    It is also important for computer engineers to keep up with rapid advances in technology. Therefore, many continue learning throughout their careers. This can be helpful, especially when it comes to learning new skills or improving existing ones. For example, as the relative cost of fixing a bug increases the further along it is in the software development cycle, there can be greater cost savings attributed to developing and testing for quality code as soon as possible in the process, and particularly before release.

    Computing and computer technology are part of just about everything touching our lives today, from the cars we drive to the movies we watch to the many ways we all interact with each other (not to mention with businesses and government).

    Understanding the many facets of computing is a necessary skill for any educated person in the 21st century. Whether you want to create the next hot application or simply want to map your next big idea for the boss, studying computing will give you a competitive edge, the ability to solve complex problems, and a career that will never be obsolete.

    To keep your career on the cutting edge and marketable in any business environment, consider the following reasons why studying computer engineering is a sound investment:

     

    The digital age needs computer engineers

     

    This is the Digital Age and computer programs have infiltrated every aspect of our lives. Computer Engineers theorize, design, develop, and apply the software and hardware for the programs we use day in day out. So, having computer engineers is pretty important. Computer engineers are the ones who have made our lives easy with every day innovation. Such a creative field it is, studying computer engineering helps you widen your creative horizon and provide solutions to the problems people haven’t thought about yet.

     

    There are lots of jobs, and they are high paying

     

    Computing jobs are the highest in number in terms of availability. There are hundreds of areas that a computer engineer can work at, and at every area making a difference. Astoundingly, they are among the high paying jobs in the world.

     

    Excellent job satisfaction

     

    That’s right! Money isn’t the only bonus to getting a job in Computer Science or IT. This sector has one of the highest rates of job satisfaction around. A recent study in the UK found that the job satisfaction in IT is double than that of the national average for other work sectors. Two of the major reasons are the freedom of work they have and the flexibility of work they are provided with.

     

    Opportunities for true creativity and innovation

     

    Computer engineering is about much more than programming; it is about inventing and building solutions. A computer engineer is an artist whose canvas may be a smartphone or PC display and whose paints and brushes are programming languages and development environments. Can you now imagine a world without Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, or Twitter? All of these were created by some college students, and you know who. With a major in computer engineering degree, only sky is the limit.

     

    Limitless future opportunities

     

    It’s true that the computer engineers will transform what the Internet will be like in the next 20 years. Like the rest of infrastructure, the Internet will eventually seem to disappear by becoming ubiquitous. Developing the Internet of Things (IoT) will require specialized skills and computing expertise. By 2030, so many everyday items, appliances, and vehicles will be online that their numbers will far exceed the Earth’s population. And of course, making these networks of devices sufficiently robust and resilient will be a challenge for current and future computer engineers. People’s dependency on computers and devices will increase so much that the computer engineers will have so many things to do.

    So, if you are considering to study computer engineering, you are making the right decision. The future awaits innovative engineers like you who can transform the world and make things easier for people. There will be a time when everything will be digitized, and everything will be easily possible – and computer engineers like you will make that possible.

  • Web-Development

    Web development majors study core programming languages, and learn about databases, front and back-end development, user experience, and APIs. A bachelor's degree in web development builds foundational skills in computer science, programming, and software building.

     

    A Web Development degree prepares students to build and design websites for organizations and individuals. Students develop technical skills in web design, communication, and problem-solving.

    As a specialized subfield of computer science, a web development degree makes sense for students looking to pursue careers in web development, web design, or other closely related fields. Web development majors develop practical, relevant skills throughout their education. Graduates can hit the ground running when they start their first web development jobs.

    Web development involves:

    • Creating dynamic content for a site
    • Programming its special features
    • Selecting and setting up the proper software
    • Assessing the organization’s hosting needs
    • Making sure the entire process runs smoothly

     

    Web developers produce sites and systems on the World Wide Web for organizations. The sites might be purely for information sites, but they are based on Web information systems that combine analysis, design, and authoring with multimedia development and traditional computing skills, particularly programming and using databases.

    A Web developer, or Internet developer, is often responsible for site design, creation and day-to-day operation. Again, the job title might differ from company to company. Many companies contract with consultants or freelancers rather than train staff to create an entire site. They might use an on-site staff to keep the site operating and to update it periodically. Other companies might hire a Web developer to create the site and maintain it once it is in operation.

    The responsibilities or required skills for a Web developer can be divided into three categories. Design skills involve content development, graphics and layout, and security. Technical skills are needed to write code, develop databases, and implement testing. Management skills are used to evaluate the hardware and software systems, train other designers and developers, coordinate with other company personnel, and provide customer service.

    Most larger firms prefer to hire job seekers with several years of experience in Web development. While in college, be sure to take advantage of internships or part-time jobs. Even volunteering for nonprofit firms or developing Web sites on your own can be added to your resume to demonstrate your capabilities to potential employers. After graduating, expect to move into a smaller company and perform a variety of Web development and design tasks rather than jumping straight into a big corporation.  Every Web site needs a developer to maintain or improve it. Therefore, opportunities are plentiful, although not all staffers will have the title of “Web developer.” People have applied different terms to the position and might even have mixed and matched some of the requirements. A person with a good grounding in the principles of Web development has the potential to succeed in a variety of areas:

    • Web Administrator
    • Web Designers
    • Webmaster
    • Web Programmers
    • Web Application Developer
    • Web Interface Designer
    • Web Publishers
    • Web Server Developer
    • Web Technologists 

     

    Education serves as the first step on your journey toward a career in web development. Don’t be afraid to break things. If you’re not breaking things, you’re not learning.

  • Aviation

    Degree in Aviation will prepare students to become professionals. It will teach about aviation management, human factors, and aviation technology.

     

    Aviation is the activities surrounding mechanical flight and the aircraft industry. Aircraft includes fixed-wing and rotary-wing types, morphable wings, wing-less lifting bodies, as well as lighter-than-air craft such as hot air balloons and airships.

     

    Aviation began in the 18th century with the development of the hot air balloon, an apparatus capable of atmospheric displacement through buoyancy. Some of the most significant advancements in aviation technology came with the controlled gliding flying of Otto Lilienthal in 1896; then a large step in significance came with the construction of the first powered airplane by the Wright brothers in the early 1900s. Since that time, aviation has been technologically revolutionized by the introduction of the jet which permitted a major form of transport throughout the world.

     

    Civil aviation is one of two major categories of flying, representing all non-military aviation, both private and commercial. Most of the countries in the world are members of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and work together to establish common standards and recommended practices for civil aviation through that agency.

     

    Civil aviation includes two major categories:

    • Scheduled air transport, including all passenger and cargo flights operating on regularly scheduled routes; and
    • General aviation (GA), including all other civil flights, private or commercial

     

    There are five major manufacturers of civil transport aircraft (in alphabetical order):

    • Airbus, based in Europe
    • Boeing, based in the United States
    • Bombardier, based in Canada
    • Embraer, based in Brazil
    • United Aircraft Corporation, based in Russia

     

    General aviation includes all non-scheduled civil flying, both private and commercial. General aviation may include business flights, air charter, private aviation, flight training, ballooning, paragliding, parachuting, gliding, hang gliding, aerial photography, foot-launched powered hang gliders, air ambulance, crop dusting, charter flights, traffic reporting, police air patrols and forest fire fighting.

     

    Each country regulates aviation differently, but general aviation usually falls under different regulations depending on whether it is private or commercial and on the type of equipment involved.

     

    Many small aircraft manufacturers serve the general aviation market, with a focus on private aviation and flight training.

     

    The most important recent developments for small aircraft (which form the bulk of the GA fleet) have been the introduction of advanced avionics (including GPS) that were formerly found only in large airliners, and the introduction of composite materials to make small aircraft lighter and faster. Ultralight and homebuilt aircraft have also become increasingly popular for recreational use, since in most countries that allow private aviation, they are much less expensive and less heavily regulated than certified aircraft.

     

    5 reasons why to choose Aviation as a career:

     

    1. Travel Opportunities

    The obvious answer here is the travel opportunities a job in aviation can offer. Whilst working for an airline can be very demanding, it’s hard to find a better industry for travel opportunities. Some of the jobs themselves require extensive travel; pilots and flight attendants for example could visit as many as ten cities on several different continents in one five-day shift! And the travel opportunities are there for when you’re off the clock too.

     

    1. Meeting New People

    In such a dynamic, fast paced industry, a job in the aviation industry means that you’re part of a bigger picture, helping to keep things moving and keeping up with the speed at which things happen. Working for an airline or airport then, doesn’t seem to be a boring, stagnant job but one that offers variety on a daily basis, not least with the people you’ll meet. This is another big reason why candidates are drawn to working for an airline or airport because it gives them the opportunity to meet new people on a daily basis. Those that work in airports enjoy the chance to meet interesting people and ‘people watch’ with no two days being the same in terms of who comes through the airport. Flight attendants also often state that they chose their job because of the variety of interesting people it enables them to meet.

     

    1. The Opportunity to Develop your Career

    As a business, it’s in the best interest of airlines and airports that their employees are continually developing, so they ensure that they offer their employees training and career development. Along with annual reviews, some offer an annual financial incentive scheme to ensure that their employees’ contributions are recognized.

     

    1. Company Benefits

    While airport jobs generally receive less travel opportunities, they too are often well-paid jobs with excellent benefits.

     

    1. Lifestyle Benefits

    Airlines and airports also recognize how important it is that their employees enjoy life outside of work too to ensure their happiness at work.

     

    With so many benefits to working in the aviation industry it’s not surprising that you may have decided aviation is the industry for you. Once you know which position best matches your skills and interests, it’s time to find that specialty!

  • Civil Engineering

     

    Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including public works such as roads, bridges, canals, dams, airports, sewerage systems, pipelines, structural components of buildings, and railways.

    Civil engineering is traditionally broken into a number of sub-disciplines. It is considered the second-oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and it is defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering. Civil engineering can take place in the public sector from municipal public works departments through to federal government agencies, and in the private sector from locally based firms to global Fortune 500 companies.

    Civil engineering is the application of physical and scientific principles for solving the problems of society, and its history is intricately linked to advances in the understanding of physics and mathematics throughout history. Because civil engineering is a broad profession, including several specialized sub-disciplines, its history is linked to knowledge of structures, materials science, geography, geology, soils, hydrology, environmental science, mechanics, project management, and other fields.

    Throughout ancient and medieval history most architectural design and construction was carried out by artisans, such as stonemasons and carpenters, rising to the role of professional builder. Knowledge was retained in guilds and seldom supplanted by advances. Structures, roads, and infrastructure that existed were repetitive, and increases in scale were incremental.

    One of the earliest examples of a scientific approach to physical and mathematical problems applicable to civil engineering is the work of Archimedes in the 3rd century BC, including Archimedes Principle, which underpins our understanding of buoyancy, and practical solutions such as Archimedes’ screw. Brahmaputra, an Indian mathematician, used arithmetic in the 7th century AD, based on Hindu-Arabic numerals, for excavation (volume) computations.

     

    Courses of Civil Engineering

     

    If you study civil engineering at undergraduate level, you’ll learn to apply mathematics and scientific knowledge (particularly physics) to real-life situations and problems that arise from creating and maintaining structures, considering environmental, financial, legal and ethical considerations.

    At its core, civil engineering is a combination of many scientific specialisms, including mechanics, hydraulics, geotechnics (using knowledge of the earth’s crust to solve construction problems), materials science and statistical analysis. As such, study of these foundational elements will feature heavily in the early years of civil engineering degrees.

    As well as the more scientific side, those who study civil engineering will get to develop their design skills, particularly computer-aided design. Project work is central to the subject, meaning that in the latter years of your degree you will be able to complete your own design projects individually or within a team.

    Undergraduate civil engineering degrees will typically be three or four years in length and will feature a mixture of lectures and lab work. There will also be an emphasis on working within a team, as this is considered a key skill for anyone pursuing civil engineering careers.

    Those who study civil engineering may also have opportunities to participate in field trips and complete industry placements, either as a ‘year in industry’ or for shorter periods.

     

    Duties of Civil Engineers

     

    Civil engineers typically do the following:

     

    • Analyze long range plans, survey reports, maps, and other data to plan and design projects
    • Consider construction costs, government regulations, potential environmental hazards, and other factors during the planning and risk-analysis stages of a project
    • Compile and submit permit applications to local, state, and federal agencies, verifying that projects comply with various regulations
    • Oversee and analyze the results of soil testing to determine the adequacy and strength of foundations
    • Analyze the results of tests on building materials, such as concrete, wood, asphalt, or steel, for use in particular projects
    • Prepare cost estimates for materials, equipment, or labor to determine a project’s economic feasibility
    • Use design software to plan and design transportation systems, hydraulic systems, and structures in line with industry and government standards
    • Perform or oversee surveying operations to establish building locations, site layouts, reference points, grades, and elevations to guide construction
    • Manage the repair, maintenance, and replacement of public and private infrastructure
    • Civil engineers also must present their findings to the public on topics such as bid proposals, environmental impact statements, or property descriptions.

     

    Many civil engineers hold supervisory or administrative positions ranging from supervisor of a construction site to city engineer, public works director, and city manager. As supervisors, they are tasked with ensuring that safe work practices are followed at construction sites.

    Other civil engineers work in design, construction, research, and teaching. Civil engineers work with others on projects and may be assisted by civil engineering technicians.

    Civil engineers prepare permit documents for work on projects in renewable energy. They verify that the projects will comply with federal, state, and local requirements. These engineers conduct structural analyses for large-scale photovoltaic, or solar energy, projects. They also evaluate the ability of solar array support structures and buildings to tolerate stresses from wind, seismic activity, and other sources. For large-scale wind projects, civil engineers often prepare roadbeds to handle large trucks that haul in the turbines.

    Civil engineers work on complex projects, and they can achieve job satisfaction in seeing the project reach completion. They usually specialize in one of several areas.

    Construction engineers manage construction projects, ensuring that they are scheduled and built in accordance with plans and specifications. These engineers typically are responsible for the design and safety of temporary structures used during construction. They may also oversee budgetary, time-management, and communications aspects of a project.

    Geotechnical engineers work to make sure that foundations for built objects ranging from streets and buildings to runways and dams, are solid. They focus on how structures built by civil engineers, such as buildings and tunnels, interact with the earth (including soil and rock). In addition, they design and plan for slopes, retaining walls, and tunnels.

    Structural engineers design and assess major projects, such as buildings, bridges, or dams, to ensure their strength and durability.

    Transportation engineers plan, design, operate, and maintain everyday systems, such as streets and highways, but they also plan larger projects, such as airports, ship ports, mass transit systems, and harbors.

    The work of civil engineers is closely related to the work of environmental engineers.

  • Mechanical Engineering

     

    Technically, mechanical engineering is the application of the principles and problem-solving techniques of engineering from design to manufacturing to the marketplace for any object. Mechanical engineers analyze their work using the principles of motion, energy, and force—ensuring that designs function safely, efficiently, and reliably, all at a competitive cost.

    Mechanical engineers make a difference. That’s because mechanical engineering careers center on creating technologies to meet human needs. Virtually every product or service in modern life has probably been touched in some way by a mechanical engineer to help humankind.

    This includes solving today’s problems and creating future solutions in health care, energy, transportation, world hunger, space exploration, climate change, and more.

    Being ingrained in many challenges and innovations across many fields means a mechanical engineering education is versatile. To meet this broad demand, mechanical engineers may design a component, a machine, a system, or a process. This ranges from the macro to the micro, from the largest systems like cars and satellites to the smallest components like sensors and switches. Anything that needs to be manufactured—indeed, anything with moving parts—needs the expertise of a mechanical engineer.

    What do mechanical engineers do?

    Mechanical engineering combines creativity, knowledge and analytical tools to complete the difficult task of shaping an idea into reality.

    This transformation happens at the personal scale, affecting human lives on a level we can reach out and touch like robotic prostheses. It happens on the local scale, affecting people in community-level spaces, like with agile interconnected microgrids. And it happens on bigger scales, like with advanced power systems, through engineering that operates nationwide or across the globe.

    Mechanical engineers have an enormous range of opportunity and their education mirrors this breadth of subjects. Students concentrate on one area while strengthening analytical and problem-solving skills applicable to any engineering situation.

    Technology itself has also shaped how mechanical engineers work and the suite of tools has grown quite powerful in recent decades. Computer-aided engineering (CAE) is an umbrella term that covers everything from typical CAD techniques to computer-aided manufacturing to computer-aided engineering, involving finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). These tools and others have further broadened the horizons of mechanical engineering.

    What careers are there in mechanical engineering?

    Society depends on mechanical engineering. The need for this expertise is great in so many fields, and as such, there is no real limit for the freshly minted mechanical engineer. Jobs are always in demand, particularly in the automotive, aerospace, electronics, biotechnology, and energy industries.

    Here are a handful of mechanical engineering fields.

    In statics, research focuses on how forces are transmitted to and throughout a structure. Once a system is in motion, mechanical engineers look at dynamics, or what velocities, accelerations and resulting forces come into play. Kinematics then examines how a mechanism behaves as it moves through its range of motion.

    Materials science delves into determining the best materials for different applications. A part of that is materials strength—testing support loads, stiffness, brittleness and other properties—which is essential for many construction, automobile, and medical materials.

    How energy gets converted into useful power is the heart of thermodynamics, as well as determining what energy is lost in the process. One specific kind of energy, heat transfer, is crucial in many applications and requires gathering and analyzing temperature data and distributions.

    Fluid mechanics, which also has a variety of applications, looks at many properties including pressure drops from fluid flow and aerodynamic drag forces.

    Manufacturing is an important step in mechanical engineering. Within the field, researchers investigate the best processes to make manufacturing more efficient. Laboratory methods focus on improving how to measure both thermal and mechanical engineering products and processes. Likewise, machine design develops equipment-scale processes while electrical engineering focuses on circuitry. All this equipment produces vibrations, another field of mechanical engineering, in which researchers’ study how to predict and control vibrations.

    Engineering economics makes mechanical designs relevant and usable in the real world by estimating manufacturing and life cycle costs of materials, designs, and other engineered products.

    The future of mechanical engineering

    Breakthroughs in materials and analytical tools have opened new frontiers for mechanical engineers. Nanotechnology, biotechnology, composites, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and acoustical engineering have all expanded the mechanical engineering toolbox.

    Nanotechnology allows for the engineering of materials on the smallest of scales. With the ability to design and manufacture down to the elemental level, the possibilities for objects grows immensely. Composites are another area where the manipulation of materials allows for new manufacturing opportunities. By combining materials with different characteristics in innovative ways, the best of each material can be employed and new solutions found. CFD gives mechanical engineers the opportunity to study complex fluid flows analyzed with algorithms. This allows for the modeling of situations that would previously have been impossible. Acoustical engineering examines vibration and sound, providing the opportunity to reduce noise in devices and increase efficiency in everything from biotechnology to architecture.

    Careers in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering range over a broad scope. Mechanical and manufacturing engineers research, design, build, test, maintain and improve all manner of things. These include power plants, renewable energy systems and electrical generators, robots, computer systems and aircraft engines and cars.

    In recent times, mechanical and manufacturing engineers have had to adapt to the changing needs of the technology era. Now they design bionic limbs and prosthetic joints, develop high performance composite materials and work on more flexible manufacturing processes. As technology demands it, these engineers respond with an ingenious invention or more efficient process.

    To be a successful mechanical engineer, some of the most important skills you can develop are:

    • Problem-solving: essential to solve all the complex puzzles that stand between you and the perfect mechanical product/device/system
    • Creativity: the only way to come up with innovative solutions, see what others do not, and create something from nothing
    • Communication: needed to work with your team, and even more important when explaining clients and users how to use your product or solutions
    • Teamwork: mechanical engineers often work in groups, which helps them brainstorm ideas, compare suggestions, and find the right answer to a given challenge or task
    • Math skills: solving mechanical engineering problems most often requires the use of mathematical principles, like Calculus or Statistics

     

    Whoever you are and whatever you choose to do, your forming years are important. This applies to you too, aspiring mechanical engineer! The more cultures and people you get to know, the more you learn about different ways to find solutions to problems.

  • Chemical Engineering

    Chemical engineering is a multi-disciplinary branch of engineering that combines natural and experimental sciences (such as chemistry and physics), along with life sciences (such as biology, microbiology, and biochemistry) plus mathematics and economics to design, develop, produce, transform, transport, operate and manage the industrial processes that turn raw materials into valuable products.

     

    Chemical engineering is a multi-disciplinary branch of engineering that combines natural and experimental sciences (such as chemistry and physics), along with life sciences (such as biology, microbiology and biochemistry) plus mathematics and economics to design, develop, produce, transform, transport, operate and manage the industrial processes that turn raw materials into valuable products.

    Many of the processes within chemical engineering involve chemical reactions, and the field takes cues from chemists who are looking for new ways to create products and to investigate the mechanisms within chemical reactions. Chemical engineers then translate this chemical information to formulate designs. 

    As such, there are two broad subgroups that better answer the question “What is chemical engineering?” – more precisely:

    • Designing, manufacturing and operating plants and machinery for carrying out large-scale industrial chemical, biological or related processes
    • Developing new or adapted substances for a wide range of products

     

    Chemical engineers may be specialized in one or the other subgroup, but work from both side will be required in order to create a final product. They will need to consider economic viability, management of resources, health and safety, sustainability and environmental impact.

    Despite its youth, chemical engineering has changed a lot in recent years. It’s traditionally just been about fuel (oil and gas), but now it’s much, much more than that.

    Power is still a big part of chemical engineering, but many graduates now go into the sustainable and ecological side of fuel. Many more will play their part in developing new materials, in nanotechnology, in mineral processes, and in bioengineering.

    A degree in chemical engineering will give you the talent and opportunity to make a real difference in the world, and get paid a handsome fee for doing so.

    As you start your course, you’ll be building a foundation of knowledge in the subject, so expect a lot of introductory modules which span chemistry, physics, and maths. You’ll begin to specialise in the second and third years, as you understand more about chemical engineering as a science.

    And you’ll be developing this understanding in a range of environments. From mastering theories and calculations in the lecture hall, to running simulations in computer rooms, to putting your knowledge into practice in laboratories, to seeing them in action during site or visit fields – it’s fair to say you won’t be sitting still for long.

    Typical modules for courses in this subject include:

    • Chemical engineering design
    • Chemistry and processes
    • Electrical and information engineering
    • Engineering computation
    • Fluid mechanics, mass and heat transfer, thermodynamics
    • Introduction to biochemical engineering
    • Practical skills in chemical engineering
    • Programming skills for engineers
    • Structures, materials and dynamics 

     

    What skills are commonly gained from a degree in chemical engineering?

    • Specialist knowledge of chemical engineering theories, methods and practices
    • Understanding of manufacturing processes
    • Knowledge of terminology used in the chemical, minerals and material industries
    • Advanced numeracy skills
    • Advanced laboratory skills

  • Electrical Engineering

     

    Electrical engineering is an engineering discipline concerned with the study, design and application of equipment, devices and systems which use electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. It emerged as an identifiable occupation in the latter half of the 19th century after commercialization of the electric telegraph, the telephone, and electrical power generation, distribution and use.

    Electrical engineering is now divided into a wide range of fields, including computer engineering, systems engineering, power engineering, telecommunications, radio-frequency engineering, signal processing, instrumentation, and electronics. Many of these disciplines overlap with other engineering branches, spanning a huge number of specializations including hardware engineering, power electronics, electromagnetics and waves, microwave engineering, nanotechnology, electrochemistry, renewable energies, mechatronics, and electrical materials science.

    Electrical engineers typically hold a degree in electrical engineering or electronic engineering. Practicing engineers may have professional certification and be members of a professional body or an international standards organization. These include the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) (formerly the IEE).

    Electrical engineers work in a very wide range of industries and the skills required are likewise variable. These range from circuit theory to the management skills of a project manager. The tools and equipment that an individual engineer may need are similarly variable, ranging from a simple voltmeter to sophisticated design and manufacturing software.

     

    Electrical Engineering Functions

     

    • Research

     

    The functions performed by electrical engineers include

    (1) basic research in physics, other sciences, and applied mathematics in order to extend knowledge applicable to the field of electronics,

    (2) applied research based on the findings of basic research and directed at discovering new applications and principles of operation,

    (3) development of new materials, devices, assemblies, and systems suitable for existing or proposed product lines,

    (4) design of devices, equipment, and systems for manufacture,

    (5) field-testing of equipment and systems,

    (6) establishment of quality control standards to be observed in manufacture,

    (7) supervision of manufacture and production testing,

    (8) postproduction assessment of performance, maintenance, and repair, and

    (9) engineering management, or the direction of research, development, engineering, manufacture, and marketing and sales.

     

    Consulting

     

    The rapid proliferation of new discoveries, products, and markets in the electrical industries has made it difficult for workers in the field to maintain the range of skills required to manage their activities. Consulting engineers, specializing in new fields, are employed to study and recommend courses of action.

    The educational background required for these functions tends to be highest in basic and applied research. In most major laboratories, a doctorate in science or engineering is required to fill leadership roles. Most positions in design, product development, and supervision of manufacture and quality control require a master’s degree. In the high-technology industries typical of modern electronics, an engineering background at not less than the bachelor’s level is required to assess competitive factors in sales engineering to guide marketing strategy.

     

    Branches

     

    The largest of the specialized branches of electrical engineering, the branch concerned with the electronic computer, was introduced during World War II. The field of computer science and engineering has attracted members of several disciplines outside electronics, notably logicians, linguists, and applied mathematicians.

    Another very large field is that concerned with electric light and power and their applications. Specialties within the field include the design, manufacture, and use of turbines, generators, transmission lines, transformers, motors, lighting systems, and appliances.

    A third major field is that of communications, which comprises not only telephony but also satellite communications and the transmission of voice and data by laser signals through optical-fibre networks. The communication of digital data among computers connected by wire, microwave, and satellite circuits is now a major enterprise that has built a strong bond between computer and communications specialists.

    The applications of electricity and electronics to other fields of science have expanded since World War II. Among the sciences represented are medicine, biology, oceanography, geoscience, nuclear science, laser physics, sonics and ultrasonics, and acoustics. Theoretical specialties within electronics include circuit theory, information theory, radio-wave propagation, and microwave theory.

    Another important speciality concerns improvements in materials and components used in electrical and electronics engineering, such as conductive, magnetic, and insulating materials and the semiconductors used in solid-state devices. One of the most active areas is the development of new electronic devices, particularly the integrated circuits used in computers and other digital systems.

    The development of electronic systems—equipment for consumers, such as radios, television sets, stereo equipment, video games, and home computers—occupies a large number of engineers. Another field is the application of computers and radio systems to automobiles, ships, and other vehicles. The field of aerospace electronic systems includes navigation aids for aircraft, automatic pilots, altimeters, and radar for traffic control, blind landing, and collision prevention. Many of these devices are also widely used in shipping.

  • Rocket Sciences

     

    Rocket scientists are aerospace engineers who specialize in the design and manufacture of spacecraft. They work with the principles of science and engineering to create vehicles that fly within or above the Earth’s atmosphere. The job of a rocket scientist requires proficiency with physics, chemistry, aerodynamics, propulsion, communications and mathematics. A bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering or a related field is the minimum requirement for entry-level positions, while many candidates choose to pursue graduate degrees to enhance their career prospects.

    The broad term rocket science usually denotes the complex set of principles that govern the engineering of a rocket, a device that fires internal fuel and uses the fuels kinetic energy to propel itself, at least to me.

    Rocket science, therefore, covers a vast subset of fields. It’s not for nothing that aerospace engineers are often considered jack of all trades.

    The first field is that of dynamics. Locally, moments of inertia, masses, torques, etc., are all important. This alone could cover half a team. There’s the astrodynamics section as well, covering trajectory and mission planning. Governing equations: Newtonian.

    Then there’s the whole set of chemistry of electromagnetically that cover the energy storage. Chemical balances, stoichiometry, etc are this part of rocket science.

    Following that is a set of thermodynamics or plasma dynamics, covering either chemical or electric propulsion. This is usually a job for another whole team.

    Next, the effects of the atmosphere on the rocket. Aerodynamics, space environment, another two whole fields of physics and astronomy.

    After that, structures. A set of physics and chemistry, some solid-state physics. Another team. Systems, feedback… all of these add up to a monumental problem. It is indeed rocket science

     

    Job Description

     

    Rocket scientists and aerospace engineers generally work on the design and testing of rocket-propelled vehicles, such as orbiting spacecraft or missiles. They could specialize in a particular area of aerospace engineering, such as space exploration vehicles or defense systems.

  • Aerospace Engineering

     

    Aerospace engineering is the primary field of engineering concerned with the development of aircraft and spacecraft. It has two major and overlapping branches: aeronautical engineering and astronautical engineering. Avionics engineering is similar, but deals with the electronics side of aerospace engineering.

    “Aeronautical engineering” was the original term for the field. As flight technology advanced to include vehicles operating in outer space, the broader term “aerospace engineering” has come into use. Aerospace engineering, particularly the astronautics branch, is often colloquially referred to as “rocket science”.

    Flight vehicles are subjected to demanding conditions such as those caused by changes in atmospheric pressure and temperature, with structural loads applied upon vehicle components. Consequently, they are usually the products of various technological and engineering disciplines including aerodynamics, propulsion, avionics, materials science, structural analysis and manufacturing. The interaction between these technologies is known as aerospace engineering. Because of the complexity and number of disciplines involved, aerospace engineering is carried out by teams of engineers, each having their own specialized area of expertise.

    This engineering field deals with the creation, design, and maintenance of travel machines, including airplanes missiles, helicopters, satellites and spacecraft. They not only create the machines but also use their knowledge of technology and aviation to create the most energy-efficient machines on the market. They utilize sophisticated technologies for defense systems, aviation and space exploration. They’re also the professionals responsible for ensuring the machines meet environmental and safety regulations. Aeronautical engineers inspect the parts and make recommendations for any necessary changes.

    Aeronautical engineering is about improving flight safety and fuel efficiency. They usually work in multi-disciplinary engineering teams where responsibilities vary.

    Aeronautical engineering and aerospace engineering are similar disciplines that are often confused, yet there are significant differences between the two disciplines. Here are some of the similarities.

    • Both use similar technology.
    • Both disciplines require similar knowledge and skill sets.
    • Both careers focus on flight.
    • Both disciplines require the candidate to earn a typical degree in engineering before pursuing an advanced degree in aeronautical engineering or aerospace engineering.
    • Both programs require study in aerodynamics, flight stability, aircraft control, and basic engineering.
    • Salaries are similar.

     

    There is one major difference between the aeronautical and aerospace engineering. Aeronautical engineering focuses mostly on flight and flight activities with an atmosphere while aerospace engineering may also include activities within an atmosphere, but it also focuses on space applications where there is no atmosphere.

    There are a lot of factors you should consider when it comes to choosing a career. But above all, you should choose where your passion lies. If your heart is into working with great people, creating, and traveling, this might just be the perfect career for you.

  • Law

     

    Studying law offers the opportunity to develop a range of skills and explore many aspects of human life. It gives you the chance to sharpen your mind, strengthen your understanding and deepen your experience across the full range of humanities and social sciences. You acquire both breadth of understanding and depth in the areas that interest you most.

    Law should therefore appeal to those who want to develop both abstract thinking and practical problem-solving. It’s easy to see why you don’t have to become a lawyer just because you’ve done a law degree; many choose other paths. A law degree can give you the skills to be a successful lawyer but also a successful producer, politician, manager, journalist, diplomat or police officer; a law degree equips you for almost any profession that requires intellectual strength combined with a practical approach to the world.

     

    Importance of Law

     

    First, Ignorantia juris non excusat is Latin for “ignorance of the law is no excuse”. It is a legal principle holding that a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law merely because one was unaware of its content. This makes it necessary for every person in India and not just its citizens to try to know and understand the law of the land. Lawyers are professionals who happen to know more and specialize in the field of law.

    Second, there is an old saying which goes like this, if you only have three friends, make sure that one of them is a Lawyer, the other a Doctor and the last a Banker. Any normal person will require the services of these three professionals at some point in time even though we hope against it, and it is better to have someone who gives preference to your wellbeing rather than look at you as an ATM. Rather, why not be a lawyer yourself if you aren’t the other two.

    Third, a degree in law can give one the skills to be a successful lawyer but also a successful producer, politician, manager, journalist, diplomat or police officer; a law degree equips you for almost any profession that requires intellectual strength combined with a practical approach to the world.

    Fourth, Law is a professional course and helps you develop certain skills. Critical analysis, drafting of documents, research, argument and presentation and sharing of ideas.

    Fifth, social engineering is based on the theory that laws are created to shape the society and regulate the people’s behavior. It is an attempt to control the human conduct through rules. Therefore, studying law helps one understand as to how the society functions.

    A career in law can be intellectually challenging, personally fulfilling and financially rewarding. Below are five reasons to choose a career in the legal profession.

  • Social Sciences

     

    Social science is the branch of science devoted to the study of societies and the relationships among individuals within those societies. The term was formerly used to refer to the field of sociology, the original “science of society”, established in the century. In addition to sociology, it now encompasses a wide array of academic disciplines, including anthropology, archaeology, economics, human geography, linguistics, management science, media studies, political science, psychology, and history.

    Positivist social scientists use methods resembling those of the natural sciences as tools for understanding society, and so define science in its stricter modern sense. Interpretivist social scientists, by contrast, may use social critique or symbolic interpretation rather than constructing empirically falsifiable theories, and thus treat science in its broader sense. In modern academic practice, researchers are often eclectic, using multiple methodologies (for instance, by combining both quantitative and qualitative research). The term “social research” has also acquired a degree of autonomy as practitioners from various disciplines share the same aims and methods.

    The social science disciplines are branches of knowledge taught and researched at the college or university level. Social science disciplines are defined and recognized by the academic journals in which research is published, and the learned social science societies and academic departments or faculties to which their practitioners belong. Social science fields of study usually have several sub-disciplines or branches, and the distinguishing lines between these are often both arbitrary and ambiguous.

     

    Social science includes such branches as

     

    • Anthropology

     
    Anthropology is the holistic “science of man”, a science of the totality of human existence. The discipline deals with the integration of different aspects of the social sciences, humanities, and human biology. In the twentieth century, academic disciplines have often been institutionally divided into three broad domains. The natural sciences seek to derive general laws through reproducible and verifiable experiments. The humanities generally study local traditions, through their history, literature, music, and arts, with an emphasis on understanding particular individuals, events, or eras. The social sciences have generally attempted to develop scientific methods to understand social phenomena in a generalizable way, though usually with methods distinct from those of the natural sciences.

     

    • Communication studies

     
    Communication studies deals with processes of human communication, commonly defined as the sharing of symbols to create meaning. The discipline encompasses a range of topics, from face-to-face conversation to mass media outlets such as television broadcasting. Communication studies also examines how messages are interpreted through the political, cultural, economic, and social dimensions of their contexts. Communication is institutionalized under many different names at different universities, including “communication”, “communication studies”, “speech communication”, “rhetorical studies”, “communication science”, “media studies”, “communication arts”, “mass communication”, “media ecology”, and “communication and media science”.

     

    • Economics

     
    Economics is a social science that seeks to analyze and describe the production, distribution, and consumption of wealth. An economist is a person using economic concepts and data in the course of employment, or someone who has earned a degree in the subject. The classic brief definition of economics, set out by Lionel Robbins in 1932, is “the science which studies human behavior as a relation between ends and scarce means which have alternative uses”. Without scarcity and alternative uses, there is no economic problem. Briefer yet is “the study of how people seek to satisfy needs and wants” and “the study of the financial aspects of human behavior”.

     

    • Education

     
    Education encompasses teaching and learning specific skills, and also something less tangible but more profound: the imparting of knowledge, positive judgement and well-developed wisdom. Education has as one of its fundamental rights the imparting of culture from generation to generation (see socialization). It is an application of pedagogy, a body of theoretical and applied research relating to teaching and learning and draws on many disciplines such as psychology, philosophy, computer science, linguistics, neuroscience, sociology and anthropology.

     

    • Geography

     
    Geography as a discipline can be split broadly into two main sub fields: human geography and physical geography. The former focuses largely on the built environment and how space is created, viewed and managed by humans as well as the influence humans have on the space they occupy. This may involve cultural geography, transportation, health, military operations, and cities. The latter examines the natural environment and how the climate, vegetation and life, soil, oceans, water and landforms are produced and interact. Physical geography examines phenomena related to the measurement of earth. As a result of the two subfields using different approaches a third field has emerged, which is environmental geography. Environmental geography combines physical and human geography and looks at the interactions between the environment and humans. Other branches of geography include social geography, regional geography, and geomatics.

     

    • History

     
    History is the continuous, systematic narrative and research into past human events as interpreted through historiographical paradigms or theories.

     

    • Law

     
    The social science of law, jurisprudence, in common parlance, means a rule that (unlike a rule of ethics) is capable of enforcement through institutions. However, many laws are based on norms accepted by a community and thus have an ethical foundation. The study of law crosses the boundaries between the social sciences and humanities, depending on one’s view of research into its objectives and effects.

     

    • Linguistics

     
    Linguistics investigates the cognitive and social aspects of human language. The field is divided into areas that focus on aspects of the linguistic signal, such as syntax (the study of the rules that govern the structure of sentences), semantics (the study of meaning), morphology (the study of the structure of words), phonetics (the study of speech sounds) and phonology (the study of the abstract sound system of a particular language); however, work in areas like evolutionary linguistics (the study of the origins and evolution of language) and psycholinguistics (the study of psychological factors in human language) cut across these divisions.

     

    • Political science

     
    Political science is an academic and research discipline that deals with the theory and practice of politics and the description and analysis of political systems and political behavior. Fields and subfields of political science include political economy, political theory and philosophy, civics and comparative politics, theory of direct democracy, apolitical governance, participatory direct democracy, national systems, cross-national political analysis, political development, international relations, foreign policy, international law, politics, public administration, administrative behavior, public law, judicial behavior, and public policy. Political science also studies power in international relations and the theory of great powers and superpowers.

     

    • Psychology

     
    Psychology is an academic and applied field involving the study of behavior and mental processes. Psychology also refers to the application of such knowledge to various spheres of human activity, including problems of individuals’ daily lives and the treatment of mental illness.

     

    • Sociology

     
    Sociology is the systematic study of society, individuals’ relationship to their societies, the consequences of difference, and other aspects of human social action.

    Social Science subjects are wonderfully varied, offering a wide range of career progression routes following graduation. The scope is broad, but these subjects are united by one thing – a focus on understanding the workings of human society. Here are some of the reasons why so many students from around the world are attracted to social science degrees.

     

    • Flexible career options

     
    Degrees in social work, politics, criminology, sociology, anthropology, statistics, finance, economics, law, psychology. The social sciences cover a lot of ground. The appeal is broad because the many subjects that come under the social sciences umbrella provide fascinating insights into everyday life in our communities, families and workplaces. All social science courses help students develop a wide range of transferable skills and open up many career options.

    The successful completion of a degree in any social sciences subject demonstrates research skills, analytical ability, a flexible and adaptable approach to learning, critical evaluation, the ability to work to deadlines, creativity, logical thinking, team-working, self-organization and communication skills – all skills that will serve graduates no matter where they want to take their careers.

     

    • Jobs that make a difference

     
    Graduate with a social science degree and you’ll be equipped with the skills you need to help to shape the future. Social sciences subjects naturally lead to progression into the kinds of careers that make a very real difference to society. Environmental planning, health, education, politics, law, international relations – these are just a handful of the many social science areas that help you to improve the lives of children and adults in societies around the world. Whatever sphere of social science you specialize in, the world needs your expertise.

     

    • Curiosity

     
    Human beings are fascinated by other human beings. What makes us tick? What makes a successful society? Why do so many of us watch Big Brother, read newspaper gossip columns, check Twitter feeds? Just one of the reasons why social science degrees are so popular is that we’re keen to study ourselves. As humans, we are, innately, problem solvers. Looking inward, be it at ourselves through psychology, or at our society as a whole, through sociology for example, we like to question, analyze, and look for answers. Social sciences subjects allow us to do just that.

    Do you enjoy a variety of fields of study? Are you interested in receiving a classic liberal arts degree, or do you not want to focus on only one area during your time in college? Or would you simply like to become a well-rounded person? Then the Social Science major is for you. In the Social Science program, you are offered the chance to explore the human condition and how we relate to one another and our world in a variety of contexts. You will spend time studying Communication, Criminal Justice, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. And if one of them becomes a favorite, then that area can become the specialty of your Social Science major.

  • Oil & Gas

    The program of Oil&Gas Engineering is aimed at students who wish to work in the oil and gas industry and specialize in different operations.

     

    The petroleum industry, also known as the oil industry or the oil patch, includes the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting (often by oil tankers and pipelines), and marketing of petroleum products. The largest volume products of the industry are fuel oil and gasoline (petrol). Petroleum is also the raw material for many chemical products, including pharmaceuticals, solvents, fertilizers, pesticides, synthetic fragrances, and plastics. The extreme monetary value of oil and its products has led to it being known as “black gold”. The industry is usually divided into three major components: upstream, midstream, and downstream. Upstream deals with Drilling and Production mainly.

    Oil and gas engineers are responsible for making sure that oil or gas surfaces from reservoirs safely and efficiently.

    Oil and gas engineers are heavily involved with every stage in the process which results in the extraction of oil and gas from reservoirs. They may be primarily involved in just one area of the process but will need to retain an awareness of all stages at all times. Typical responsibilities include calculating and creating plans which show the locations in which the most oil and gas can be extracted, controlling one or several wells, and ensuring that health and safety regulations are met at all times. Oil and gas engineers will need to use their knowledge of petrophysics to ensure that drilling operations are conducted accurately and efficiently.

    They will be expected to draw upon their mathematical and scientific knowledge at all times but will also need to be able to retain a broad perspective throughout each project. They will need to adopt supervisory roles and managerial roles at different stages of the process. Engineering is an industry which employs people from all backgrounds and cultures and both men and women find roles in engineering particularly rewarding.

    Most oil and gas engineers hold degrees in relevant subjects and many hold postgraduate qualifications.

  • Linguistics

    The study of linguistics helps the student understand the abstract noises and shapes which we use to communicate with each other, the differences between them and what they mean, the rules which govern them, and how we understand them.

     

    Linguistics is the scientific study of language. It involves analysing the many different aspects that make up human language by looking at its form, structure and context. Linguistics also looks at the interplay between sound and meaning, and how language varies between people and situations.

    A degree in Linguistics can open the door to many careers owing to the emphasis on critical thought, analysis and communication skills.

    Linguistics degrees cover a multitude of topics relating to the analysis of language and the way it is structured. They can also cover the way that language changes over time, how it varies between different groups of people and situations and how people learn or acquire language.

    The first year of your course will focus on an introduction to linguistics, including grammar, meaning (semantics), syntax (sentence formation), sounds (phonology) and words (morphology). The course content for the second and third years of study will vary widely between universities but can cover anything from typology, experimental phonetics, language acquisition, child bilingualism, modern foreign languages, the study of regional speech, the history of language and neurolinguistics, among many others.

    Linguistics courses may also incorporate aspects of psychology, sociology, anthropology, communications studies and science.

    The variety is one of the things that makes linguistics fascinating: one day you might be poring over a medieval text for evidence of how the grammar of a language has changed, and the next, learning about how the larynx creates sound energy for speech, or how we can record brain responses in a categorisation task.

    Linguistics is concerned with the nature of language and communication. It deals both with the study of particular languages, and the search for general properties common to all languages or large groups of languages. It includes the following subareas :

    • phonetics (the study of the production, acoustics and hearing of speech sounds)
    • phonology (the patterning of sounds)
    • morphology (the structure of words)
    • syntax (the structure of sentences)
    • semantics (meaning)
    • pragmatics (language in context)

     

    It also includes explorations into the nature of language variation (i. e., dialects), language change over time, how language is processed and stored in the brain, and how it is acquired by young children. 

    Linguistics is a growing and exciting field, with an increasingly important impact on other fields as diverse as psychology, philosophy, education, language teaching, sociology, anthropology, computer science, and artificial intelligence.

    The skills acquired during a linguistics degree can be adapted for most industries. Direct career paths that can be followed are: lexicographer, speech and language therapist, languages teacher, copy editor, proofreader or a role in communications. Other career paths may include, but are not limited to, the civil service, marketing, journalism, law and IT. Further study can also be undertaken to help prepare for more specialised roles or to enhance linguistics knowledge.
