- Bioengineering : The application of electrical, mechanical, chemical, optical, nuclear and other engineering principles to understand, modify and control biological (plants and animals - including human) systems.
- Centrifugal fan : A mechanical device for moving air or other gases.
- Chemical Engineering : Add brief definition or description
- Chemical engineering : The field of engineering that deals with industrial and natural processes involving the chemical, physical or biological transformation of matter or energy into forms useful for mankind, economically and safely without compromising the environment
- Civil engineering : A broad field of engineering dealing with the design, construction, and maintenance of fixed structures, including roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and water supply and sewage systems.
- Density (chemistry) : A measure of the mass per unit volume of a gas, liquid or solid.
- Electrical engineering : The branch of engineering that deals primarily with electricity and electromagnetism.
- Engineering : The profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to economically use the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind.
- Environmental engineering : A field of engineering devoted to remediation of all forms of pollution.

- Robotics : The science of designing, building, and using robots for a set of tasks.
- Wire and cable : Two related concepts; the first being a single metallic strand or perhaps interwoven thin strands that act as a single large strand, the second being an assembly of metallic strands, sometimes mixed with other mechanically compatible structures, such as fiber optics and strength members
