VGM's Careers in Engineering
The different types of engineering fields are as numerous and diverse as the skill and knowledge base of engineering professionals. Building bridges requires structural engineering knowledge; automobile design needs mechanical engineers; and communications technicians must be trained in electrical engineering. Today, computers and artificial intelligence aid engineers in performing many tasks, thereby increasing design efficiency, safety, and overall effectiveness; however, there continues to be a need for talented engineers in every corner of the industry.
The field of engineering is a world where design, mechanics, and craftsmanship can be invented, brought together, and honed to create something as small as a computer chip or as large as a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, from a simple time-lock mechanism to the complexities of the space shuttle. Engineering is a field in which imagination meets reality. Those working in it reap immense satisfaction and accomplishment from their profession.
Inside, you will find up-to-date salary statistics and descriptions of the work culture that paint a comprehensive picture of what to expect on the job.
