Engineering is a multidisciplinary subject, combining natural and experimental sciences such as chemistry and physics, along with life sciences such as biology, microbiology and biochemistry, plus mathematics and economics.
The main objective in this field is to develop student into engineers, who are able to apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop economical solutions to technical problems.
The work of engineers is the link between scientific discoveries and the commercial applications that meet societal and consumer needs. Many engineers develop new products.
Engineers use their knowledge of scientific and mathematical principles to solve technical problems. They work in a variety of disciplines including civil, environmental, chemical, mechanical, electrical and petroleum engineering.
