Prospective students who are considering a career in engineering design will most likely have strong backgrounds in math and science and a strong interest in technology. Engineering is a broad field, affording students the opportunity to move in many different directions in their careers.

What is a Bachelor in Engineering Design? This is post-secondary degree program that provides students with a solid grounding in design, manufacturing, technologies and product development. Students pursuing an engineering design degree may be interested in coming up with new products. Most are creative individuals who enjoy problem solving. In their careers, they will troubleshoot their designs through working with prototypes before the production process begins. They might also work in conjunction with drafting engineers and others who will translate their designs into fully realized products.

Earning an engineering design degree provides the student with a strong foundation in both the theoretical and practical aspects of design engineering. Students often learn what it takes to bring a new product from the initial visualization stage to final production. They can learn problem solving skills and how to interact with other team members.

Costs of obtaining this degree varies depending upon the school, the length of the program and living arrangements. Obtaining a bachelor’s degree normally takes four years with some universities offering a fifth year option. Careful research will ensure choosing a program that best suits the student.

There are a number of career opportunities for graduates with an engineering design degree. Students might work as product design engineers in the fields of manufacturing, biotechnology, video gaming, environmental engineering or even aerospace engineering. Some other disciplines that might appeal to graduates are human systems engineering and sound engineering. The role of a design engineer has a creative component that gives many graduates an increased sense of job satisfaction.

Prospective students have worldwide options to obtain this degree. Additionally, they may find they can take part or possibly all of their classes online.
