Can you send me a list of all the opportunities in engineering?


The Career Doctor responds:
There are whole books published on careers in engineering (such as Careers in Engineering
by Geraldine Garner) so no I can’t really send you an entire list of opportunities.
Engineers are professional problem-solvers. According to the U.S Department of Labor’s
Occupational Outlook Handbook “engineers apply the theories and principles of
science and mathematics to research and develop economical solutions to technical problems.” Read more of the report.
There are many different kinds of engineering specialties including (but not limited to) aeronautical engineering automotive engineering biomedical engineering chemical engineering civil engineering computer engineering electrical engineering environmental engineering mechanical engineering nuclear engineering and petroleum engineering.
A good source of general career information as well as some specific
resources for women interested in pursuing a career in engineering is the
National Academy of Engineering (NAE) Website. The NAE has a special section entitled
Engineer Girl! which has lots of resources and links for discovering the benefits of a career in engineering for women.
You can also review other career and job information by going to this section of
