Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Summary... header image

Structural Engineering is the science and art of designing civil engineering facilities so they can safely resist the forces to which they are subjected. All structures from bridges to buildings, harbours to airports must be able to meet these requirements. In addition to the technical skills required for the above work a Civil Engineer will also have competencies in related fi elds such as project and asset management, health and safety, and water and wastewater treatment.

Mechanical Engineering involves the design, manufacture and operation of products that have motion or have internal moving parts including machines and aircraft to major power plants and process equipment facilities.

Chemical and Biopharmaceutical Engineering involves turning raw materials into fi nished products. The fi nished products end up in pharmacies, supermarkets, petrol stations and many other places and the design, operation and management of these products are the responsibility of the Chemical and Biopharmaceutical Engineer.

Biomedical Engineering combines engineering knowledge with an appreciation of the functioning of the human body, covering topics from the design and development of artifi cial joints, to equipment for medical diagnosis and treatment, to the implanting of biomaterials or biomedical devices in the human body.
