Studying engineering or even an engineering affiliated course at university is no easy task. You have to be financially, mentally, and even emotionally prepared for the trials ahead. Before taking such a big step and then spending 4 to 5 years in school, you need to be sure of what lies ahead.
Getting a good job, especially in a country like Nigeria, is not easy. Even if you are lucky enough to graduate with a good grade, the number of people in the labour market usually surpasses the number of jobs available.
For engineering jobs, in particular, applicants or job seekers have to have a spotless certificate and a good record. But before we go into all that, let’s define engineering.
Engineering is the broad term that covers the study and application of physical science principles to design and build machines, structures like roads, buildings, bridges, water channels, etc. Engineering is the field of science and technology concerned with the design, construction, and operation of engines, machines, and structures.
There are several types of engineering
- Civil Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Marine Engineering
- Aeronautical Engineering
- Production Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Computer Engineering
