Question: Which Engineering Field Is The Hardest?

The common consensus is that the hardest engineering degrees are mechanical and aerospace with chemical, electrical, and computer engineering in second, and civil and environmental in last (my school doesn’t offer industrial or any of the other ones).

Which engineering is the easiest?

The Easiest Engineering Degrees

Many people argue that although still considered extremely challenging Civil Engineering is the easiest engineering degree to obtain, but that’s only part of the story.

Who gets paid more civil or mechanical engineer?

National Salaries

The median annual salary for mechanical engineers was $80,580 and civil engineers earned $79,340. The top 10 percent of electrical engineers earned an annual salary of $136,690, while the top earning civil engineers earned $122,020 and electrical engineers earned $121,530.

How hard is civil engineering?

The first thing that is “easy” in civil engineering is admission into an engineering college! But if you have no aptitude for technical drawings, visualisation, simple numbers and basic math and geometry, common sense and basic powers of observation, you may find Civil engineering a difficult subject to study.
