Top 10 Highest Paying Engineering Jobs in the World 2021


top 10 highest Payne engineering jobs in

the world I remember when I was about to

choose an engineering course to study at

a university I rejected mechanical

engineering because I thought it will

lead to a car mechanic I rejected civil

engineering because I thought they only

viewed bridges I thought to myself how

often do we build bridges in this

country I rejected Electrical

Engineering because I thought they only

work at the national electricity company

fixing power failure with that I ended

up with petroleum engineering living in

an oil-producing country it's not hard

to see how that would lead to a

fulfilling career well

I later learned that my assumption about

this engineering fields you are all

wrong you can actually build a

successful career in any of this and

most other engineering fields

engineering is one of the fastest

growing and highest-paid professions in

the world so in today's video we'll

bring you the top ten highest paid

engineering jobs while you are here

consider subscribing to after-school

Africa for more educated videos like

this counting down from number number

ten civil engineer contrary to my

teenage selves belief that civil

engineers only beaut bridges this

engineering field is broken down into

sub disciplines structural probably the

most prominent type of civil engineering

it involves the structural design and

analysis of buildings bridges towers

tunnels flyovers offshore structures and

other man-made projects construction

deals with a planning a logistical side

of beauty and construction work and a

small business forecast environmental

involves sanitary engineering including

hazardous waste management's procedures

and environmental remediation

transportation involves designing

monitoring and building transportation

routes including roads highways railway

systems canals airports ports and mass

transit systems coastal similar to water

resources engineering which focuses more

on inland water management such as dams

coastal engineering deals with erosion

and water defenses particularly in

vulnerable areas although these are the

more prominent areas there are many

other subspecialties

aside from military engineering this is

the oldest engineering discipline in the


number nine mechanical engineer well

mechanical engineers don't necessarily

end up under the hood fixing cars

mechanical engineering is a very broad

discipline and at its core is

essentially the design and maintenance

of anything that is composed of moving

parts it requires a strong understanding

and comprehension of the following key

areas mechanics dynamics and

thermodynamics material science

structural analysis electricity it is

the most common area of engineering and

as such it is applicable across all

industries and fields as a result

mechanical engineers are highly

employable by almost any large

organization that owns factories or

manufacturing plants number eight

industrial engineer in a world where

businesses are constantly looking to

optimize production and manufacturing

costs eliminates waste Funes and comply

with environmental obligations

industrial engineers can be worth their

weight in gold taxed with identifying

and implementing solutions to these

problems they combine data analysis with

hands-on knowledge and awareness of

on-the-ground practices integrated

machinery people materials and

information into their processes as a


to be as adept in dealing with humans as

they do anything mechanical

number seven biomedical engineer

biomedical engineering is seen as the

bridge between medicine and conventional

engineering using advances in biological

science to develop machinery and tools

that can help agonize monitor and treat

medical conditions and injuries

there are many large biomed companies

competing in this lucrative market such

as Johnson & Johnson and the medical

divisions of both Siemens and GE number

six electrical engineer again electrical

engineers do a lot more than work with

national electrical power companies

fixing power failure electrical

engineers has subject matter experts in

all things electric employing their

finely tuned skills to a wide variety of

industries roles and locations they can

be responsible for designing and running

power stations as well as developing

commercial products or designing and

implementing control systems basically

if there's an AC current involved then

it's likely that an electrical engineer

will have had something to do with it

as a result electrical engineers are

employable in nearly every industry and

as technology advances so to do their

job and salary prospects number five

chemical engineer chemical engineers do

more than spend their career in a

chemistry laboratory although there's a

demand in academia and research chemical

engineers typically work for commercial

businesses who seek to transform

chemicals materials and energy sources

into usable products such as plastics

and other synthetics as well as

traditional engineering skills such as

science and mathematics the commercial

nature of this job also demands a

working knowledge of economics there are

many large multinational companies that

specialize in chemical engineer

number four software engineer software

engineers write test implement and

updates the software code that is used

by computers applications and other

digital platforms as a result its

importance to possess excellent

programming skills as well as an

aptitude for problem solving as we move

further into the digital age software

engineer jobs are increasing

year-on-year and it is predicted to be

one of the most common and important

jobs of the near future although any

company that runs its own databases

requires software engineers they form

the core working body of many innovative

tech giants such as Apple Google and

Facebook number three you computer and

hardware engineer hardware engineer Lee

not to be confused with software

engineering is a combination of

Electrical Engineering and computer

science and is used to build the

components that are used in computers

network systems and other commercial

products as our world becomes

increasingly digital computer

engineering is emerging as a

sought-after and highly valued

profession as an added bonus many of the

companies who are seeking these skills

are often named among the top companies

to work for number two

aerospace engineer aerospace engineering

is basically concerned with the

development and maintenance of either

aircraft aeronautical or spacecraft

astronautical due to its complex nature

it's usually broken down and divided

into four the engineering sub

disciplines such as avionics

aerodynamics and propulsion most of the

large aircraft manufacturers such as

Boeing and Airbus are far positions

directly although it is also possible to

work for parts specific companies such

as GE or rolls-royce who build engines

this is generally the second high

Spain engineering jobs in the world the

highest-paid engineering job in the

world is petroleum engineer the

discovery a recovery of natural oil and

gas resources is perhaps the most

lucrative business enterprise in the

world in fact six of the top ten richest

companies in the world by revenue are

oil and gas companies and in such a high

stakes industry energy companies rely

primarily on the expertise of petroleum

engineers Xbox on the physical behavior

of water oil and gas petroleum engineers

are compensated handsomely by the global

energy companies the higher them the

drawback is that petroleum engineers are

restricted to a particular industry in

conclusion careers in engineering are

enormously varied with the opportunity

to work in fascinating fields and get

well-paid especially in the energy and

IT sectors which engineering field do
