Engineering is one of the largest professions in the United States with over one million jobs in fields ranging from airplane design to pollution control. The four largest branches of engineering are electrical, mechanical, civil and computer engineering. All branches of engineering place a heavy emphasis on problem solving. Engineering education focuses on teaching scientific and engineering concepts and their application to the creative and effective solution of problems.

Career opportunities for practicing engineers include positions in aerospace, agricultural, architectural, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, industrail, materials, mechanical, and nuclear fields. Most engineers work for manufacturing industries, while a smaller percentage work for federal, state and local government agencies, or as private consultants.
