Specific Discipline Courses

Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is one of
the oldest disciplines of
engineering, it deals with
the construction and
designing of non moving
structures.

Some examples are: Highways,
skyscrapers, bridges, hotels, houses,
docks, etc

Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical Engineering is the discipline of
moving structures, that applies the principles of
physics. This branch also involves the production
of hydroelectric power.



Mechanical Engineers
also team up with
engineers from other
disciplines such as
Aerospace.

Environmental Engineering


Environmental Engineering is
becoming very popular!




Future challenges in managing
and restoring our natural
environment.





Electrical Engineering





Electrical Engineering includes power,
electronics, control systems, signal
processing and telecommunications.



Chemical

Engineering




Chemical Engineering uses the principles of chemistry,
physics and mathematics for the manufacture of chemical
products.


Chemical Engineers also design new drugs and medicines
.

Responsibility


The engineering profession is self governing:


Members are responsible for governing the
profession, admission of practitioners and
discipline of members in accordance with the
Engineering Profession Act
and the By Laws of the
Association.


Members are subject to a Code of Ethics
as well.

Our Mission


To serve and protect the public interest

Our Experiences

Thank You

We hope you consider a future in
engineering! Engineers are in
demand, and Employers are looking
for you.

Engineering Principles


Another engineering principle is building with
support. To build up you must have a good base, so the
structure doesn’t topple over.



Activity: In groups with marshmallows, and spaghetti,
you must see how high you can make your structure.
