Although mechanical engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines used by mankind, it was not until the European Industrial Revolution of the 1700s that mechanical engineering became a formal area of study and practical application. This engineering discipline involves the use of scientific principles to create tools and equipment made from adequate materials. Today, mechanical engineering impacts nearly every industry that requires physical infrastructure, and the age old engineering practice keeps pace with the times by incorporating the latest technological advances into its standard processes. The skill set associated with mechanical engineering is portable across continents and presents special opportunities for those pursuing careers in mechanical engineering.
The word instrumentation can be defined as “the art and science of measurement and control of process variables within a production or manufacturing area.” As such, it belongs to the much broader field of engineering, which also includes information technology, project management and chemical, civil, mechanical and electronic engineering.
Electronics Engineering, is an engineering discipline in which electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, transistors, and transformers are utilized to design electronic circuits. Electronics engineers are often employed by engineering firms and are responsible for research, design, and test electronic circuits used in equipment ranging from television sets and personal computers to military-grade aviation systems. Electronics engineers play a vital role in the development of new electronic technologies.
IDC Technologies provides Information Technology courses to help professionals remain knowledgeable about this constantly changing industry. We are a registered training organization as well as an IEEE continuing education provider. Information Technology specialists can attend workshops in city venues around the world and at the behest of clients, presented on their company sites. IDC Technologies hosts conferences to share large amounts of information about various engineering fields, including data communications. IDC’s sister company, the Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT), allows students to complete their Information Technology training courses without having to travel to a learning center. IDC Technologies also provides a variety of technical manuals on Information Technology to update professionals on changes in the industry.
Civil engineering covers a broad field. Because of this, most civil engineers focus on specialties. While all civil engineers must take common classes, the field covers so many things that it would be almost impossible to thoroughly study all of it. Structural engineers design buildings, bridges and other structures. Transportation engineers design roads and transportation systems. They have an in-depth knowledge of asphalt, concrete and are able to understand traffic and growth patterns in a city. Water and waste-water engineers have a thorough understanding of how water works. They study pumps, waste-water treatment processes, drainage, erosion and laws regarding pollution and hazardous materials spills. Environmental engineers learn how to minimize the impact of mankind on the earth. While there is much overlap in many of these engineering specialties, college students often decide which specialty is most appealing and take civil engineering courses that help them learn about the concentration that they enjoy most.
