We develop our understanding of things according to our perception. For instance, if someone talks about engineering or engineers, we immediately imagine a boy or a girl wearing a yellow helmet holding big maps with rulers and standing right before an under construction building!

Contrary to this common perception, engineering is a very big field of study with so many branches and types in it. For example, some engineers design and build roads; others invent new machines for factories, build robots or develop new materials for vehicles and sport gears. Still others make supercomputers, clean our air or put astronauts in space.

Yes, there are so many types of engineers doing exclusive work in their specialised fields. If this sounds interesting, then the site www.thoseamazingengineers.comis just for you as it introduces engineering and so many careers in it.

The site is a gem for those who want some guidance in the field of engineering. The interface is captivating, you can check for the details by going through the drop down menu at the top right side of the homepage. Once there, you can choose from the various types in engineering like Aerospace, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Environmental, Mechanical, Software, Structural etc. and then some topics like, Engineering is it for me; When can I start; Wonderful places to work, How do I get there from here, and many more. Clicking any of it will open the topic in a new page with short interesting texts, videos and related pictures.

The site is built brilliantly as it provides fascinating pictures, short videos and texts that make sure the children are having quality time. So if you still think of artists and musicians as creative, just have a peak into the fields of engineering and I bet the site will leave you awestruck.

Let me tell you one thing before I conclude, it was an engineer who invented our favourite toy — the slinky! So check out how engineers touch every part of our lives, making our world better, safer, and more fun at www.thoseamazingengineers.com
