Relying on math and science to solve complex problems, engineering is the design and building of the world around us – from machines and structures to roads, vehicles and buildings. Virtually used in everything we see, engineering uses scientific principles to adapt new discoveries and technology to everyday items. As an academic field, engineering can be broken down into a range of disciplines: chemical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering, which in turn encompass numerous other engineering subdisciplines and interdisciplinary subjects. An essential field of work, engineering is the act of designing, evaluating, developing, testing, modifying, installing, inspecting and maintaining a wide variety of products and systems. With the Open Institute you will learn from experts in the field, acquiring in-depth knowledge and gaining the necessary know-how from theoretical online classes and practical assignments.
As an academic discipline, information technology (IT) focuses on the study, design, development, implementation, support or management of computer-based information systems, from software and applications to computer hardware. IT is constantly evolving and developing, and without a doubt an integral part of society today. Computers are used for almost all fields of work, as well as in personal life. Very high in demand, there are numerous jobs you can excel at with a degree in IT. Whether you choose programming, analysis, database administration, web development or security management, you will be able to find the right degree on the Open Institute.
