Subjects within Engineering and IT include many traditional subjects such as the big engineering disciplines, plus a raft of newer topics. In the first group we find mechanical, electrical, civil, production and chemical engineering. During the 20th century, electronics aeronautics and most recently information and communications technology has arrived on the scene. Here the hardware may be largely the province of the electronics experts, but software and systems skills are the domain of a new group of ICT specialists. But the fact that some of these subjects have been going a long time does not mean that they are out of the loop. Some have had a makeover.
In future years, traditional engineering subjects such as civil and electrical engineering are going to change more. Engineers are rarely out of work, and will be in more demand than ever in coming decades. One reason for this is climate change: the systems that have worked well in the past have to change radically. Take automotive engineering: fuel economy has always been regarded as desirable in vehicles, but is now a growing ecological and legal necessity. Electric or hydrogen-powered vehicles deriving their fuel from renewable energy or biomass will be next.
The same ethos informs the development of future buildings and cities. In the longer term there are plans for buildings to use not fossil fuel and even to work in such a way that they absorb, rather than emit, carbon dioxide. This ambitious target will mean big business for creative engineers. They could find themselves designing zero-carbon, car-free cities. They might be involved in massive renewable energy projects. Politicians and environmentalists like to talk about these ideas, but only engineers make them happen.

Do you want to work on a factory floor (go for production engineering), or might you be happier developing the next generation of replacement hip joints (try materials engineering)? Whatever choice you make, engineering courses are famously hard work. They involve more lectures and coursework, up to and including major projects, than almost any other subject you might study.

The next problem is which university to attend, and here there are some harsh realities to face. The top technology institutions that are highly placed on this list are tough to get into. But because all governments want more engineers, there are many places to do an engineering degree where the asking price, both academic and financial, is a lot lower. Perhaps one key decision is whether you want to be at a specialist technology institution, with all that this implies for atmosphere and the nature of the student body you will be mingling with.
