Alocsin's Engineering Jobs and Salaries Index
© 2012 by Aurelio Locsin.
Engineers convert theoretical physical and mathematical information into practical methods and machines that solve everyday problems. They typically specialize in a branch of the discipline such as mechanical or chemical engineering. Most positions require at least a four-year degree, though higher levels, such as in research or management, may need at least a master's degrees. Those who want to work directly with the public may additionally need a license that confers the Professional Engineer designation.
The following indexes are for Alocsin's hubs on engineering and are arranged in alphabetical order. Unless otherwise stated, they focus on salaries, and the employers and locations that provide those wages.
- Chemical Engineers. These engineers focus on using chemical, physical and biological principals for food, fuels, cosmetics or polymers, among other applications.
- Civil Engineers. These professionals plan and develop infrastructure projects such as bridges, roads, airports and water treatment plants.
- Fastest Growing Engineer Jobs. Describes the top 10 fastest growing jobs in engineering from 2010 to 2020.
