Other Types of Engineers
Software Engineers: They develop the software that runs businesses around the world today. From online ticket booking systems, to account management systems or social networking websites, we rely on software engineers to provide us with these technologically advanced and amazing services.
Nuclear Engineers: These engineers are responsible for the design, maintenance and supervision of nuclear power plants. Also, there are research opportunities for nuclear engineers to work on new ways in which nuclear energy can be obtained and used.
Mining Engineers: Mining engineers are involved in extracting and purifying minerals from the mines. They are also responsible for designing equipment that helps in the extraction and purification process.
Agricultural Engineers: They work on machinery and equipment that help in the agriculture field. These engineers can also work on food sciences that do advanced research on how to make seeds more productive (genetically modified food grains, etc.).
These are just some of the common engineering disciplines today. If you are a student, it is your responsibility to find out beforehand which discipline attracts you more and then choose a field of study.
Some engineers make a lot of money and some less. But if you want to become rich, perhaps engineering isn’t the right game. CEO’s, bankers and people in other non-engineering professions earn many times more money than engineers, with a very few exceptions.
