Engineering is 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 offers specialised knowledge in a particular field; for example an automotive engineer (branch of mechanical engineering) would focus on vehicle design and testing, while these in-depth subjects are generally not covered in mechanical engineering.
