To make things easier, use these features to sort the following opportunities.

Engineering Icons Final rev Chemical

Chemical engineers find safe and affordable ways to transform raw materials into everyday products. We rely on chemical engineers to help manage resources, protect the environment and create products we all depend on.

SWE SWENext Stem Pathways SWENext Engineering Icons Final Biomedical copy

Biomedical engineering combines biology, medicine and engineering. Biomedical engineers develop new equipment and methods to improve the quality of human health, like surgical devices and prosthetics.

Engineering Icons Final rev Civil

Civil engineers design, build, operate and maintain infrastructure projects like roads, buildings, tunnels and bridges. These engineers are valued in many industries. 

Engineering Icons Final rev Mechanical

Mechanical engineers design, build and test the machines that help us in our everyday lives. Their work might involve designing an airplane to make it safer, or creating life-saving medical equipment.

Engineering Icons Final rev Computer Science

Software engineers design the programs we use on computers and smartphones. Any time you make a video call, use social media, or play games online, you’re using programs that were created by a software engineer!

Engineering Icons Final rev Electriccal

Electrical engineers develop tools and products that use electricity, and ways to generate and store electricity. They play an important role in the power generation, utilities, transportation and medical technology industries.

Engineering Icons Final rev Industrial

Industrial engineers design systems to produce a product or service in the most effective and efficient way possible, with the least amount of waste.

Engineering Icons Final rev Aerospace

Aerospace engineering focuses on the design, building and controlling of machines that fly above ground, like airplanes, jets and helicopters, as well as spacecraft that travel beyond Earth’s atmosphere.

Engineering Icons Final rev Architectural

Architectural engineering centers on the planning, design, construction and maintenance of buildings and building systems to make sure they are safe, structurally sound, and resilient.

Engineering Icons Final rev Manufacturing

Manufacturing engineers oversee and manage the production processes and systems used to create the products we use every day.  

SWE SWENext Engineering Icons Final rev Marine

Marine engineering focuses on the building and maintenance of ships, aircraft carriers, submarines, and tankers.

SWE SWENext Engineering Icons Final rev Environmental

Environmental engineers use concepts from engineering, soil science, biology, and chemistry to create solutions for environmental problems.

SWE SWENext Engineering Icons Final rev Nuclear

Nuclear engineers design nuclear equipment, test the effectiveness of nuclear management systems, and monitor nuclear facility design, construction, and operation practices.

SWE SWENext Engineering Icons Final rev Mining

Mining engineers design mines that are capable of the safe and effective removal of important materials, such as coal or gold.

STEM Pathways Petroleum Engineering Icon CP

Petroleum engineers design and develop various methods for extracting oil and gas from beneath the Earth’s surface, as well as finding new ways to extract oil from pre-existing wells.
