Engineering is a vital part of the Connections Makery program. Basic engineering skills translate directly towards the mechanical Engineering field. Engineering dates back to ancient Greece, Egypt, and eastern China, where mechanisms like the lever, the wheel, clocks, screw pumps, steam engines, and even early forms of gears were invented ( ). Mechanical Engineering involves application of, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of any and all mechanical systems. It requires a firm understanding of concepts such as mechanics, and engineering design; also solid grounding in math and physics. Mechanical engineers uses these principles in the design of cars and other automobiles, cooling systems in houses, heavy work equipment, and so much…show more content…
With today 's increased use of electronics and other electrical systems in our daily lives, this field holds vast opportunities that allow us to keep up with the latest of technologies. Electrical engineering, is often referred to as electronics engineering, is a field that typically requires completing at least a bachelor’s degree. Students in electrical engineering programs should have a strong background in advanced mathematics and a basic understanding of physics. Aerospace Engineering designs airplanes, satellites, missiles, and aircraft. Usually working for federal government or other private companies that specialize in the designing and manufacturing of equipment capable of travel through air and space. These Engineers are able to work in one of the two areas within the aerospace industry. Aeronautical Engineers focus more on aircraft and learn about the practice, technology, and theory of flying aircrafts within the earth’s atmosphere ( ). They Primarily study the aerodynamic performance of different materials and are tasked to design and create propulsion systems and aircrafts of all shapes and sizes. Astronautical Engineers main focus is on the attention to spacecrafts and the technology involved with flight both within the earth’s atmosphere, and in space…show more content…
This field started in creation of the integration of the consumer computer somewhere around the last 1990s, many built their own hardware and created their own software. In the past, computer engineering was separated into two different categories. Computer software and Computer hardware Engineering. With new technologies the opportunities for new innovation and the need to create new areas of expertise is ever present. Today this vast field is made up of experienced experts that have created a new category for themselfs. This includes, architecture, social networking, also web development, all have a role in computer engineering ( ). Computer engineers are in high demand in many corporate, scientific and medical sectors. Computer engineers are now able to developing and create many of the most complicated and innovative types of technology. The founders and creators of many major companies such as Google, instagram, and tumblr, all came to be because of their technologies developed by computer
