Engineers have the opportunity to be of profound service to humanity. Engineers are problem solvers. They apply science and mathematics to create solutions that are intended to be of "benefit to mankind." These solutions can deal with energy, air and water pollution, space travel, biomedicine, construction, computer design, bridge and dam design, and many other interesting areas of study. There are numerous fields of engineering to enter, including Aerospace, Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Environmental, Material Science, Mechanical Engineering and many others.
