IMAGE SOURCE They both address environmental issues. However, there are differences in their approach to improving and remediating the effects on the habitat. The environmental scientist takes an analytical perspective. He/she focuses on what caused the particular condition, whereas the engineer looks at how to correct the problem. For example, the scientist looks at the . . .
What is Environmental Engineering? Environmental engineering is the branch of engineering that is concerned with protecting people from the harmful effects of the environment, such as pollution. It employs science and the application of technology to matters of preserving nature. It uses techniques to reduce the damaging effects caused by humans and animals. Additionally, this . . .
IMAGE SOURCE What is Fire Science? Fire science is the study of how fires start, how to prevent them, and how to suppress them. The term can refer to the science of fire in general aspect, or it can apply to a specialized area such as fire prevention, fire investigation, or fire services leadership. Fire science embraces all types of . . .
“The ideal engineer is a composite … He is not a scientist, he is not a mathematician, he is not a sociologist or a writer; but he may use the knowledge and techniques of any or all of these disciplines in solving engineering problems.” — Nathan W. Dougherty, American Civil Engineer The world needs more . . .
IMAGE SOURCE Design Engineering (DE) takes the design of a product and transforms it from a concept or prototype into a usable item that appeals to customers. Industrial Design (ID) applies the art of design that stresses the attractiveness of the product and its function. The creation can be an original design or improvements on . . .
IMAGE SOURCE We use the term security engineering in the collective sense, as it refers to different areas of computer security. This includes cyber security, network security, computer engineering, computer security, and networking. This post will provide some of the graduate degree choices in this field with a brief synopsis of each. This may help . . .
The career opportunities for graduates of both engineering and engineering technology degrees are plentiful. At first glance, the shorter time to completion and fewer required engineering courses found among associate’s degree programs in engineering technology might make this degree path seem more appealing than a traditional bachelor’s degree in engineering. However, many students find that . . .
Deciding that you want to work in computer technology is one thing, but deciding which computer technology degree is right for you is an even bigger challenge. What makes it particularly difficult is that sometimes, both careers have significant advantages. For example, though computer science generally offers a higher salary and better job growth than . . .
When you choose a career that emphasizes health and safety, you can protect countless individuals from serous injury. However, there is more than one career path that offers this fulfilling mission, and those career paths tend to be very different. When choosing between a background in engineering and environmental health that allows you to work . . .
