Engineering and Artisans
Engineering is a broad term that covers a wide range of applications and industries. Combining mathematics, science and technology, engineers produce creative solutions to real world problems. As a result there are many different types of engineering degrees available.
In the past, engineering could be divided into four major branches: Mechanical, Chemical, Civil and Electrical, with sub branches of each discipline. Today however, the number of engineering degrees available have increased dramatically. There are now six major branches of engineering: Mechanical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Management, and Geotechnical, and literally hundreds of different subcategories of engineering under each branch.
There are also many different types of Engineering Artisans. These include: Welders, Electricians, Fitters, Turners, Millwrights, Sheetmetal Workers, Boilermakers, Mechatronics, Mechanics, Toolmakers, Patternmakers, Bricklayers, Plumbers, Carpenters, Joiners, Shutterhands, Steel fixers, Glaziers, Plasterers, Tilers, Sound technicians and Instrumentation and electronics technicians.
Artisans are highly skilled in working with their hands - the emphasis here is on practical skills. Whatever field an aspiring artisan chooses to go into, they will find themselves learning the ins and outs of manufacturing, servicing and repairs. Want to know more about what an artisan does?
