Suggest all engineering disciplines

CEans,

At the time of registration, we ask users to enter their engineering discipline. Despite of the clear instructions to enter the engineering discipline as "Electrical" , or "Mechanical" or "Computer" etc., a lot of our members enter "electrical engineering", "studying IT engineering" into the text box. That results into messed up mini-profile in posts.

So, I'm thinking of creating a drop-down list of all engineering disciplines that users can choose from. So here's the list of Engineering disciplines that come to my mind. Suggest more, please. 😀

  1. Aeronautical
  2. Aerospace
  3. Agricultural
  4. Automobile
  5. BioTech
  6. Civil
  7. Electrical
  8. Electronics
  9. Mechanical
  10. Mechatronics
  11. Metallurgy
  12. Mining
  13. Structural

Mechanical and Automation (Thats my line, its mechanical engineering with automation and mechatronics including some of their subjects like control added to the course)
We once had a Waterproofing engineer here at CE.
Marine Engineer
Chemical
Environmental
Genetic
Industrial
Instrumentation
Instrumentation and Control
Military
Nuclear
Polymer Science
Ceramic
Geotechnical

Well, we'll stick to parent branches. That's why we do not have Electronics and Telecommunication as a separate branch.

But hey, let's decide it later. Let the disciplines flow in 😉

What about Computers and IT?

And we forgot them. How could these two escape our(Biggie and me) minds.

Happens. :sshhh:
you can also add-up Textile engg & Ship-building/naval architecture
Biggie, if you can put Automobile as separate from Mechanical, you can put Telecommunications separately from Electronics too! 😛

What I suggest is to add both parent and specializations, eg:
E&E: Power Generation
E&E: Communications

Mechanical: Aerospace
Mechanical: Automotive

Biotechnology: Genetics
Biotechnology: Biochemical


etc..

The list may be very long, but its a one off thing. CEans would be glad to see their specialization listed 😀 IEEE has a nice list of different societies.

Makes sense. I'll post a list soon. Let's get this done.

My vote for automobile and computer

In that sensce,even civil and structural should be bracketed together

Shall we use the ready made list available on IEEE page: -> IEEE - Engineering Disciplines ?

The only problem is that the list will become too long. Will that be a problem? What do you think?
It should be alright for now. Perhaps we can use this thread for CEans who wish to request additional disciplines if needed.

I dont think a long list would be a problem 😀 The more disciplines the better!
Well in that sence there might more 1000 engineering disciplines!!
