Demand for engineering services is on the rise in Zambia. The rapid growth of a number of industries, as well as the commodities boom that has accompanied their development, has provided a ready market for engineering service providers. Once provided principally by engineers from abroad, improvements in education, the expansion of large engineering firms and the boom in the construction and manufacturing sector, have led to the emergence of a pool of skilled and experienced engineers within Zambia itself.
On Infobwana you'll find companies that provide specialised engineering and consulting services, with in-house specialists for different engineering disciplines. Apart from individual residential developers, clients include commercial investors, architects, development authorities, institutions and government agencies.
This is one of the most recognisable of the engineering professions, one of the oldest types of engineering in the world. It covers the design, construction and maintenance of infrastructure such as roads, bridges, dams, buildings and other public works.
Centred around electric-powered technology, engineers work on electrical components, devices, and systems. This discipline also has specialist branches such as power generation, battery design, electronics and development of motors.
Using a combination of engineering and science, this discipline aids in the processing of food, creation of industrial chemicals, and manufacture of pharmaceuticals. Chemical engineering is a relatively under-utilised field in Zambia. But the few chemical engineers present in Zambia are in high demand due to the wide variety of industries that rely on them.
Engineers here use a combination of science, mathematics, and engineering methods to design equipment, buildings, information systems, and more. They help businesses determine how many workers are needed for a project, how long the project is likely to take, and the process involved in a project. Industrial engineers in Zambia work in industries such as healthcare, finance, entertainment, technology and manufacturing.
This involves the design and manufacture of both products and machines. It is one of the most diverse branches of engineering, covering anything from car parts to tools and sensors. As with all engineering fields, mechanical engineering requires problem-solving abilities to help develop and design vital pieces of machinery. Mechanical engineers rely on their creativity and analytical skills to bring a product from idea to reality.
