Types of engineering

space engineering

Aerospace engineers are involved in the design, analysis, construction, testing, and operation of aircraft, including airplanes, helicopters, rockets, and spacecraft. The course is based on the fundamentals of fluid dynamics, materials science, structural analysis, propulsion, aerospace design, automatic control and guidance, and computer software development.

agricultural engineering

With the increase in growth and associated industrial potential, Indian agriculture has now been given the status of an industry. The Agricultural and Food Engineering course aims to prepare engineering graduates to meet the demand for technical manpower in agricultural machinery development, land and water resource management, agricultural production and processed food production. To meet the current demand of the agri-food industry, the course has been suitably modified to include specialized training in design, development, testing and selection of tractors and farm implements, irrigation, drainage and watershed management using remote sensing and GIS; information technology, food, feed and fiber processing, use of biomass, by-products and waste in the production of biochemicals, fuels, manure and non-conventional energy. The course provides enough flexibility for students to gain experience in each of the three main areas of specialization namely Agricultural Energy and Machinery, Soil and Water Conservation Engineering and Food Process Engineering.


The aim of this program is to prepare students, both in theory and in practice, for leadership in the globally competitive fields of life science, pharmaceutical, biotechnology industry, academia and research. The program has been developed to meet the growing demand in these areas of industry and research. Students of this program will find unique work and research opportunities in biomedical engineering, drug design, bioinformatics, biotechnology, nano-biotechnology, genomics, etc. The course is designed to introduce biology as an experimental science, as opposed to the commonly held notion as a descriptive subject. Students will also find the application of a wide range of techniques in the physical, chemical and mathematical sciences to design, perform and interpret experiments in biology.

engineering chemistry

Chemical engineers work in various fields such as oil refining, fertilizer technology, food and agricultural processing, synthetic foods, petrochemicals, synthetic fibers, coal and mineral industries, and environmental pollution prevention and control. Chemical engineering deals with the development and improvement of processes, the design, construction, operation, management and safety of plants for these processes and research in these areas.

Civil engineering

The civil engineer deals with the planning, analysis, design, construction and maintenance of various facilities such as buildings, highways and railways, airports, waterways and canals, dams and power plants, water treatment and sewage disposal systems, quality control of the environment, docks and ports, bridges and tunnels. A civil engineer is also required to deal with critical issues of today such as disaster mitigation and management, construction of offshore structures for oil production,

engineering chemistry

Some chemical engineers design and invent new processes. Some construct tools and equipment. Some plan and manage facilities. Chemical engineers have helped develop atomic science, polymers, paper, dyes, drugs, plastics, fertilizers, foods, petrochemicals…just about everything. They figure out ways to make products from raw materials and ways to transform one material into another useful form. Chemical engineers can make processes more cost-effective or greener or more efficient. As you can see, a chemical engineer can find a niche in any science or engineering field.

mechanical engineering

Mechanical engineers design and develop everything you think of as a machine, from supersonic fighter jets to bicycles to toasters. And they influence the design of other products too – shoes, light bulbs and even doors. Many mechanical engineers specialize in fields such as manufacturing, robotics, automotive/transportation, and air conditioning. Others move into other disciplines, working on everything from artificial organs to the expanding field of nanotechnology. And some use their mechanical engineering degree as preparation for practicing medicine and law. A mechanical engineer may design a component, machine, system, or process. Mechanical engineers will analyze their design using the principles of motion, energy and force to ensure that the product functions safely, efficiently, reliably and can be manufactured at a competitive cost.

electrical engineering

Electrical engineering deals with the basic forms of energy that run our world. Whether it’s gas, hydro, turbine, fuel cell, solar, geothermal, or wind, electrical engineers deal with the distribution of that energy from its sources to our homes, factories, offices, hospitals, and schools. Electrical engineering also includes the exciting field of electronics and information technology. Do you have a cell phone or a computer? Wireless communications and the Internet are just a few areas that electrical engineering has helped to flourish through the development of better telephones, more powerful computers, and high-speed modems. As we enter the 21st century, the technology that surrounds us will continue to expand and electrical engineers are on the sidelines

electronics and communication engineering

Design, manufacture, maintenance, supervision and production of electronic equipment used in entertainment media, hospitals, the computer industry, communications and defense. Electronics engineers work with devices that use extremely small amounts of energy. They work with microprocessors, optical fibers and in telecommunications, television and radio.

production engineering

They deal with the integrated design and effective planning of the entire production system, which is becoming increasingly complex with the advent of sophisticated production methods and control systems. Job and Scope: Opportunities are available in public and private sector manufacturing organizations engaged in the implementation, development and management of new manufacturing processes, information and control systems and computer-controlled inspection, assembly and processing. Biomedical Engineering: Biomedical engineering (BME) is the application of engineering principles and techniques to the field of medicine. It combines engineering design and problem-solving skills with medical and biological sciences to help improve patient health care and people’s quality of life.

materials engineering

New materials have been among the greatest achievements of every age and have been central to the growth, prosperity, security and quality of life of humans since the beginning of history. Always new materials open the door to new technologies, whether in civil, chemical, construction, nuclear, aeronautical, agricultural, mechanical, biomedical or electrical engineering.
