Petroleum engineering deals with four main sub-disciplines which are reservoir, drilling, production, and formation evaluation engineering.
Oil and Gas Pipeline Engineering
Oil and gas pipeline engineering deals with the efficient transport of fluids. This area of practice relates only to the transmission of petroleum and gas and related fluid pipelines.
Naval architecture deals with the safe design and specification of marine vessels and structures. The naval architect can also be involved in the construction, repair, refit or operation of such marine vessels and structures.
Mechatronics engineering is multidisciplinary and deals with integrating electrical and mechanical systems. It can include a combination of robotics, electronics, computing, telecommunications, systems, control, product engineering, and electronics to create functional, smart products.
Mechanical engineering deals with the application of the principles of engineering and physics with the study of advanced materials for the design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems.
Civil engineering deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. Civil engineers generally specialise in one of a number of sub-disciplines.
Chemical engineering deals with the application of physical sciences (physics and chemistry) and life sciences (microbiology and biochemistry), together with applied mathematics and economics to produce, transform, transport, and properly use chemicals, materials and energy.
Building Services Engineering
Building services engineering deals with the internal environmental and environmental impact of a building.
Biomedical engineering deals with combining design and problem-solving skills in applying engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes.
