Engineering as Practical Application of Natural Sciences
Engineering Science is a multi-faceted field and covers various subject areas, in which natural sciences are practically applied. As this is always about certain technologies or technical developments, we often also speak of "technology".
Many of today’s established engineering sciences have their basis in Physics. Practical knowledge of the applications has been collected for centuries, for example in the craft disciplines such as blacksmithing.
Many disciplines come under the heading of Engineering. In general, three main areas can be identified which are also the most popular with students:
- Mechanical Engineering focuses on the construction, development, and manufacture of machines. This includes, for example, turbines, motors or tooling machines, along with vehicles.
- Electrical Engineering concentrates on electrical and magnetic function principles. Electronics, communications engineering, computers and electric motors are the focus of this engineering science.
- Civil Engineering is concerned with the construction, calculation, implementation, and organisation of construction and building projects.
Other well-known scientific disciplines are Material Science, Process Engineering, and Mechatronics.
There are already relevant online courses in some of the areas listed here which you can find in our directory. Other courses are continually added.
Interesting Online Courses in the Subject Area of Engineering Sciences and Technology
Many online courses are suitable both for students and others interested in technology. The advantage of e-learning is, of course, that you can learn under your own conditions — anytime, anywhere.
Browse through our directory and choose the online courses which particularly appeal to you. The spectrum of courses covers a great variety of areas—from Engineering to Nanotechnology. Interesting MOOCs (massive open online courses) in the subject area of Engineering Sciences/Technology are made available for example by edX or Coursera.
