About Engineering Scholarships

Engineering is a diverse field with engineers working in many different industries such as biomedics or mechanical and aerospace to name a few. It is a tough industry that requires working in challenging settings but it is one of the highest-paying careers.

If you have plans to pursue an engineering career, then getting an engineering scholarship is a great way to get financial assistance for your education. With the cost of tuition, fees, books, and materials increasing every year, it can be difficult for many students to pay for the cost of their studies. A scholarship can help cover some or all of these costs, allowing you to focus on your studies. Engineering scholarships are important because they help to ensure that there is a steady stream of engineers entering the workforce. They also provide opportunities for students who might not be able to afford to study engineering without some financial assistance. They also help to encourage more people to consider studying engineering, which could lead to an increase in the number of engineers working in the field.

The most popular engineering degrees and careers include mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering. These three disciplines are in high demand since they cover the design, construction, and maintenance of systems used in many industries.

Careers to pursue with an engineering degree

Engineering is an exciting career field, and someone with an engineering degree can find themselves in unexpected industries. For example, if you pursue a degree in environmental engineering, you may find yourself in the oil and scarce resource mining industry. Engineers are sought out by employers in almost all sectors of the engineering industry. So when you are applying to colleges remember that the focus of your engineering degree will decide the kind of engineering job you do, so choose something you feel is more suited for you. With an engineering degree, you can pursue a career in the aerospace industry, chemical industry, construction industry, and marine industry amongst others. You can also find yourself in alternative career paths such as business, finance, IT, management, or procurement and purchasing.

Head to our blog on the 26 Highest Paying Engineering Jobs of 2023 to see what other careers are out there.

Why is engineering an important field?

Engineering is an important field because engineers can provide solutions to some of the problems affecting us today using science and innovation. With technology and science, engineers can bring solutions to problems such as environmental change, and accessibility to health care and medicine. The infrastructure developed by engineers can help improve people’s lives and advance many industries.

Engineering scholarships for women 2023

Did you know that women only make up about 20% of engineering graduates? Engineering is well-known as a male-dominated industry, with women only making up 13% of the engineering workforce. It is important that there is equal representation of women in the engineering field, and many companies seek to improve representation in the industry. To encourage women to pursue careers in engineering, businesses and organizations have set up scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students in engineering. Our Scholaroo database features more than 20 different scholarships specifically for women in engineering.

The most popular engineering majors in 2023

When deciding whether to pursue an engineering degree, students are often conflicted on what type of engineering degree to take. If you are in the process of deciding on your engineering major then knowing what the most popular and in-demand degrees are may help you. Here are the five most popular engineering majors:

1. Mechanical engineering
Mechanical engineering is quite a broad field of engineering that offers plenty of opportunities for you in the future. A mechanical engineer’s role is to apply science to design, develop, build, and test different engines, systems, equipment, and machines for different industries. With mechanical engineering, you can work as a systems engineer, energy engineer, production engineer, manufacturer, or mechanical designer. The skills you can develop from your degree can prepare you for most industries and is an excellent choice that many students make.

2. Computer engineering
Computer engineering has quickly become popular in the digital age. It’s a version of electrical engineering combined with computer science. Your main role as a computer engineer is to design, build and develop computer hardware and software. In this major, you will learn electrical engineering and computer science, AI, robotics, computer operating systems, and other areas of learning.

3. Civil engineering
Civil engineering is the cornerstone of the building and infrastructure field. As a civil engineer, you can become involved in construction, transportation, water management, and other related industries. The major typically involves learning about structural engineering, steel and concrete material, water supply, transportation, infrastructure management, and other related subjects.

4. Electrical engineering
Electrical engineering involves designing and applying sciences to devices and systems which utilize electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. There are a few industries that require electrical engineers such as manufacturing, transportation, communication systems, and even infrastructure. Many electrical engineers will work in teams with other engineers and architects.

5. Biomedical engineering
Biomedical engineering involves the application of science and engineering to biology and medicine. Biomedical engineers typically design and develop medical instruments and devices but they also work in a variety of disciplines in healthcare.

Engineering scholarships for high school seniors 2023

Scholarships are a great way for high school seniors to get the financial assistance they need to pursue a degree in engineering. These can be used to cover various costs such as tuition, room and board, textbooks, and other associated expenses of attending college.
