Section 1: Introduction

An overview of what this course covers!


A detailed overview of all the types of Engineering out there!

We take you through:

  1. Mechanical
  2. Electrical
  3. Civil
  4. Chemical
  5. Biomedical
  6. And More!

And their specialisations! If there is one lecture you shouldn't definitely watch, it is this one!

Section 2: In Depth: Mechanical Engineering

An overview into the world of mechanical engineering and what it is about in more detail!


In this lecture, we briefly look at some theory of mechanics! We will use this for the light switch design example!


We go into a little bit more detail into the theory of mechanics


Are you ready to design a light switch? It follows on from the theory in the previous videos!

Section 3: In Depth: Electrical Engineering
A Digital Systems Example

A continuation of the theory we will need for our design of an adding machine! More about logic gates!


In this design example, we go design a digital device that can add some numbers together! We use the theory built up in the previous videos to do this.

Section 4: University Selection

We take you through different universities and how good they are in engineering as well as tips to get into university and what to do while there.

Section 5: Jobs in Engineering

We go through the highest paid engineering jobs, the future engineering jobs, how to land a certain engineering jobs and more!

Section 6: Conclusion
