The world is changing fast in the wildlife kingdom and we need to be able to help wildlife thrive in their natural habitat. We couldn’t do this without the help of wildlife biologist and zoologist. These professionals study the characteristics and behavior of animals – gaining a better understanding of how they interact with each other and their environments. Through breeding programs, informational presentations, and collecting and analyzing biological specimens, zoologists and wildlife biologists work on the front lines of the effort to preserve our planet’s biodiversity.
Veterinary pathologists diagnose diseases by going straight to the source—they examine animal tissues and body fluids. Veterinary pathology is divided into two branches: anatomical pathology (examination of organs, tissues and bodies) and clinical pathology (examination and urine and blood). This isn’t for the faint of heart—veterinary pathologists are the crux of sustaining animal health.
Toxicology is often referred to as the “Science of Safety” – toxicologists use the power of science to test and predict how various chemicals may cause harm. These scientists typically have a strong understanding of science and biology – working primarily in laboratory settings to study the effects and proper doses of substances ranging from pesticides to prescription drugs. Toxicologists play a key role in protecting public health, the environment and animal welfare.
We only have one earth, and it’s important that we protect it by being environmentally responsible. It’s the role of sustainability specialists to help businesses implement green and sustainable practices that reduce a company’s environmental footprint, ensure compliance with regulations and meet organizational goals and objectives
Civilizations have relied on the work of statisticians for thousands of years, dating as far back as the Ancient Egyptians, who employed statisticians to census cattle. Currently, we rely on statisticians to help us to better understand the world around us, viewing data as a puzzle that can be applied to various situation – from science, to public health, agriculture, marketing and more. Statisticians analyze and interpret data in order to draw conclusions, make predictions, tracks trends and provide information.
Technical problems usually don’t have a one-size-fits-all solution and that’s especially true for businesses and organizations with large scale software systems. It’s the job of solutions architects to understand user or functionality issues and resolve them by researching, designing and managing the implementation of solutions. Their work ensures that organizations are able to maximize efficiency and achieve their goals.
From traffic lights, to banking, to school work — most aspects of our daily lives rely upon functional software programs. It’s the job of a software quality assurance engineer to ensure that programs operate exactly as intended. They are involved in all aspects of the process – planning, developing and assessing progress. They closely monitor the development phase, conducting multiple testing phases to ensure program performance meets quality specifications and functions as expected.
Just like a theater set designer does for stage production, systems software developers work behind-the-scenes, designing the operating software that enables daily technology production – computers, phones, tablets, routers and more – to work; basically anything that has a chip in it requires a systems software developer to make it operate. Applying the principles of computer science, mathematical analysis and engineering, these professionals research, design, develop and test operating system components, drivers and debuggers to ensure that the daily technology show always go on.
Application software developers are the creative minds behind the apps we use every day, and not just the ones on our smartphones. Word processors, games and even internet browsers are all examples of programs created by application software developers. These professionals analyze the needs of businesses and consumers, then leverage their skills in computer science and software engineering to design, test and develop applications that meet those needs.
Software engineering architects are visionaries and planners, ensuring organizations have a software infrastructure that supports their unique business needs. With an understanding of goals and functional needs, they research and design customized software solutions, oversee development and implementation and ensure on-going functionality. With an eye to the future, they ensure that software systems are able to evolve with changing trends and emerging technologies.
