According to Georgia Tech school of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Engineering is the science of creating practical applications of the knowledge of pure science such as physics and chemical plants. What wastedtalent.org says about what engineers do on a daily basis is that most of them analyse, solve problems, plan, and communicate with eachother on a daily basis. Engineers do all type of work, each of them study a different field, they each have a specific part of a project to work on and they also help and/or communicate with each other. The four major disciplines of engineering are chemical, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering.
The website of Stanford Chemical Engineering provides information about what is chemical engineering, chemical engineering is a discipline that influences the areas of technology. The engineers are responsible for the conception and design of process for the purpose of production, transformation and transportation of materials. According to the Columbia Engineering Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with their design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and a built environment this includes working in roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Electrical engineering is the field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. According to the University of Washington Mechanical Engineering Department, “mecqhanical engineering is the broadest of all the other engineering disciplines, it focuses on energy, fluid mechanics, dynamics, combusion, vibration, design manufactoring process, systems modeling and simulation, mechatronics, robotics, mechanics of material, rapid prototyping and composites. These are the four major disciplines of engineering. But each of these major disciplines have their smaller disciplines.
The discipline of engineering that I’m going to focus on is nuclear engineering. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics it states that nuclear engineers focus on is research and develop the processes, instruments, and systems used to derive benefits from nuclear energy and radiation. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that most of these engineers find industrial and medical uses for radioactive material. An achievement that I selected from www.greatachievements.org is the achievement of Petroleum and Petrochemical Technologies. The website gives out a difference between the succes of coal in the 19th century and the oil emperor of the 20th century. The difference between these two achievements is that the 20th century achievement of oil was a better fuel and source for the environment. This information is based on the website of greatachievemnts.com on the timiline side.
This great achievement of the 20th century shows how engineerings work hard to innovate something that was already great. A quick description of this achievement is that the oil refined the...
