What kinds of Engineering courses are available?

Engineering is one of the oldest professions, and is a feature of everyday life as humans have long since devised fundamental inventions such as the pulley, lever, and wheel. Today engineering has evolved and refers to the exploitation of basic mechanical principles to develop useful tools and objects.

Often referred to as the science, discipline, art and profession of acquiring and applying technical, scientific and mathematical knowledge to design engineering is also the implementing of materials, structures, machines, devices, systems, and processes that safely realise a desired objective or invention.

Engineering training courses are varied as the field is so diverse. Within engineering, courses are available in the areas of plumbing, steel works, electrical, building and construction. Additionally there are a number of theoretical training courses, which award certificates and qualifications, leading to diplomas.

As engineering is such a broad discipline, training is usually separated into several sub-disciplines, each focussed on differing areas of engineering work. Engineers are usually trained in one specific area, but over their career they require frequent training, and often become multi-disciplined, having worked in several of the outlined areas. As a profession engineering companies are both large collaborations and small individual focussed projects. The forms of engineering courses that all engineers have to adhere to are industry specific, update training throughout their careers and relates to regulations, safety precautions, and materials.

Training and courses for Building and Construction 

Civil engineering courses include construction, building and large-scale construction projects that require specific skills such as multitasking, project management, supervisory positions, construction management, design engineering, and project architecture. In terms of building and construction, the design and execution of the infrastructure must consider the environmental impact of the job, the successful scheduling, budgeting, site safety, availability of materials, logistics, inconvenience to the public caused by construction delays, preparing tender documents, etc.

In the building and construction industry training and courses often include:

  • safety training
  • risk assessment
  • concrete repairs
  • construction firm's audit
  • contaminated land
  • business law

Training courses in Electrical / Electronics 

Electricians require training from basic levels to advanced levels training and courses, and courses vary from general fitness activities, maintenance of electrical installations and electrical inspection. Electrical training covers the electrical and electronics work and practical parts, as well as theoretical training in which you learn about the basic issues, including the operation of electricity, Ohm's and Kirchhoff's laws and Maxwell's equations.

Training courses in Energy

The areas of training that relate to energy can be divided into renewable and non-renewable energy. Training courses in renewable energy sources enable engineers to create renewable sources (sun, wind, flowing water, the heat), learn how to generate biological processes, develop skills in thermodynamics and change energy into more readily usable forms - responding to industrial or household electricity needs. The engineering courses for those working in the energy industry often deals with energy efficiency and energy analysis.
