Occupational Outlook Handbook: 



While it is important to note that many engineering jobs require at least a bachelor's degree, the engineering programs listed in PIVOTfinder may help prepare students for further studies in engineering or for entry level jobs in the Engineering Technologies or Architecture fields. It is also important to note
http://labor.ny.gov/stats/olcny/professional-engineer.shtm
that engineers must be licensed in New York State, so engineers and engineering technicians without a license must work under the supervision of a licensed engineer.


Generally, engineers design and build different types of machines or systems in a range of disciplines. An Agricultural Engineer, for example, might design machines use for harvesting crops, while a Biomedical Engineer might focus on creating machinery to help diagnose medical issues.
Civil Engineers design large-scale public works projects like highways or airports; Health and Safety Engineers may help test equipment to make sure it is safe to use, or inspect equipment and work spaces for hazards.

There are many more types of engineers, including Aerospace, Chemical, Computer Hardware, Environmental, Industrial, Mechanical, Electrical, Nuclear, and Material, so be sure to check out the Occupational Outlook Handbook for more information.
