Engineers design systems to ensure ample clean water for the world’s population, to find non-polluting energy sources, to create ways to assist healthy living and ageing, and to advance medical and health technologies.

Engineers are team players and many become CEO’s and entrepreneurs; engineering graduates run over 30% of the world’s biggest international companies, nearly double the next largest discipline.
