1. What do engineers do? Use verbs to answer.
2. Read the four parts of one text (A, B, C and D) and put them into the correct order (1, 2, 3 and 4). Do not pay attention to the gaps:
When you have decided which area you are interested in and thought realistically about what sort of person you are, then you can decide what sort of engineering you want to be.
Each of these three main area can be divided again into specialist subjects: civil engineering covers mining and __________ building, mechanical engineering covers aeronautical and __________ engineering, electrical engineering covers __________ and __________ .
There are lots of different types of engineering. The one thing they have in common is that they all use Maths and Science to improve industry and manufacturing. The whole science of engineering can be broadly divided into three main areas (or fields):
•civil engineering (__________ , __________ , etc.)
•mechanical engineering (__________ , __________ )
•electrical engineering (__________ , __________ , etc.)
Clearly there is a big difference between building a road and designing a computer system so the best advice for students is:
•think carefully about which area of engineering interests you most. It is difficult to study if you are not interested – and you may do the job until you are 60 years old.
•Think about what sort of person you are. Will you be happiest working in an office, in a factory, or outdoors? Do you mind getting dirty? Do you want to work with other people or alone? If you like wearing high heels and beautiful clothes, you may not be happy on a building site.
