Engineer with the energy and chemical industry is the so-called avant-garde trio branches that ensure the development of scientific and technological progress. Modern engineering world consists of more than 200 industries. On the map Engineering and Metalworking provides specific group of branches. Yes heavy (general) Engineering manufactures process equipment for other industries: mining, energy, metallurgy and so on. In general machinery are also machine and agricultural machinery. These branches are targeted mainly at consumers and the areas of metallurgy.
Automotive, railway engineering, shipbuilding, aviation and space industry relating to transport engineering. Production of different vehicles are labor intensive, therefore gravitate to big cities where there are qualified human resources.
instrument combines precision engineering, electrical and electronics industries that are science-and labor-intensive. Leadership in production of precision engineering is highly developed countries, and in the production of household appliances leading position of the new industrial countries Asia and China.
high level of engineering and metalworking are the Group of Seven countries , Russia and most European countries. There is a major engineering centers. In the world of engineering distinguish the following main areas:
North America (30% of world production);
Western Europe (30 %);
East and Southeast Asia (20 %);
Russia and CIS countries.
