Engineering Disciplines

Engineering is a broad field that is divided into various disciplines and sub-disciplines. The disciplines of engineering can be divided into four main categories, chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering. Each main discipline will provide you with a “taste” of the various skills and knowledge required to work in any field related to the discipline.

There are also branches, or sub-disciplines, of these main disciplines that offer specialised knowledge and skills in a particular field; for example Automotive Engineering is a branch of Mechanical Engineering but is heavily focused on vehicle design and testing and these in-depth subjects may not be covered in a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering.
