Discover the engineer in you
With the wide range of engineering disciplines, you’ll find engineers working in all kinds of industries, economic sectors, and workplaces. But all engineers are united by two common characteristics: they use creativity, math, and science concepts to solve real-world problems; and they have a duty to serve the public. Engineers are important members of their local, national, and international communities, and their work has a direct impact on society.
Take one (or many!) of the quizzes below to discover what engineering disciplines may interest you the most. Each quiz features trivia and engineering problem-based questions. Once you finish the quiz, have your parent or guardian fill out a form to enter you into a draw to win one of fifteen Amazon gift cards! Or try another quiz to learn about another engineering discipline!
Don’t know the right answers? That’s ok! Math and science can be taught. All you need right now is an interest to find the answer, the curiosity to learn more, and the passion to change the world.
A civil engineer works with the environment, both natural and artificial. This could involve designing, constructing, and maintaining structures and transportation systems. Some civil engineers work with the natural environment by extracting resources and working with soil (geotechnical). Others work to improve agricultural practices.
Electrical engineers work with electricity. This could involve designing electronics or control systems, working with optics, or developing wireless communication systems. The scale of electrical engineering ranges from nanotechnology up to country-wide power generation and transmission.
Chemical engineers creatively design processes to take raw materials and transform them into higher value products. Chemical engineering involves multidisciplinary approaches that create solutions which are more efficient, cost-effective, safer, and reduce their environmental impacts.
Environmental engineers apply different aspects of engineering to solve environmental problems. This includes pollution monitoring and control, recycling and waste disposal, environmental restoration, impact assessment and mitigation, and developing sustainable energy sources.
