Best Future Specializations For 2030
Before you start asking me, may I ask you one question? It could be two! Why are you seeking the best specializations to study? In other words, who are you trying to impress or outsmart? We all have our motives, right?
In an attempt to understand the motives of human beings, the writer Yuval Noah Harari put forward in his book "The Wise" a hypothesis that humanity has gone through three pivotal revolutions that changed the course of human history. The first was the cognitive revolution, during which humans recognized the language and agreed on concepts such as freedom, equality, justice, and culture.
After that, the agricultural revolution came, in which humans acquired the skill of farming and dispensed with hunting, followed by the scientific revolution, which continues until these days. In this period, humans reorganized their thoughts, admitted ignorance, and adopted observation rather than postulates and absolute belief.
Humans tried to keep up with all these revolutions driven by survival instinct, which is the biggest motivator of humans. As the female is an essential partner in the journey of survival and reproduction, she was the main driver of human evolution. During the era of power, she was attracted to the most powerful men until the start of the second revolution. The female became attracted to the men with good agriculture knowledge until the age of fire discovery. However, knowledge has become the main attraction factor in the scientific revolution that the human race is witnessing.
Therefore, the answer to my first question will be the girl you drew now in your mind.
Other than survival instinct, passion and desire are critical drivers for choosing the right specialization, and this is what we talked about extensively in the article "The Lie of Passion and the Right Specialization." Therefore, we have presented for you in this article the most important future specializations to study.
- Alternative and Renewable Energy
- Artificial Intelligence (AI)
- VR & AR
- Data Science and Big Data Analyti
It is one of the most crucial future specializations, as people will rely more on alternative energies such as solar, wind, and hydro. In this specialization, you will study all forms of renewable energy. Moreover, you will hone the practical, technical, economic, and social skills needed to deal with clean energy.
This specialization has begun to be offered in Arab universities as one of the engineering and environment specializations. Therefore, this is your best choice if you are interested in environmental and sustainability issues.
- Renewable Energy Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Environmental Studies.
- Mechanical Engineering
When you hear the word robot, the first thing that comes to mind is UFOs and an alien invasion sweeping Earth. However, this is not the only picture of robots as we have already started to use robots in various fields, such as the military, landmines detection, and medical fields, to perform precise surgical operations. The robots vary according to the application for which it was made. It is expected that the world will rely more on robots soon to perform some jobs instead of humans as robots can perform them more precisely without getting tired. However, they will not replace humans in the workplace. Robots need programming and manufacturing knowledge gained in computer engineering and programming specializations.
- Computer Science
- Mechanical Engineering
- Mechatronics Engineering
Artificial intelligence is not different from robotics, as both are concerned with the study of computer programs to simulate human brain capabilities and the thinking process, which depends on learning, analysis, and then deduction to make the appropriate decision.
The study of artificial intelligence is rarely available in Arab universities; however, it can be sought as training and introductory courses.
This specialization is not limited to scientific specializations. It needs to be familiar with philosophical disciplines and cognitive science to reach with the machine to advanced stages of mimicking the human mind with the skills of communication, perception, and feelings.
- Computer Science
- All Engineering Specializations
- Cognitive Sciences

Do you remember the Matrix movie? It is one of the early movies to show virtual reality. In layman's terms, virtual reality is the ability to create a new world in which the users can be engaged by wearing the VR headset.
Virtual reality has widely spread thanks to electronic games such as Roblox and the Facebook transformation to META, which has evolved from being social media platform to a virtual reality company.
On the other hand, augmented reality is the opposite of virtual reality. It is the integration of virtual elements to interact with the user's environment in real time.
These specializations seem to have a bright future, opening many learning horizons for students. Unfortunately, these specializations are not available in the Arab countries so far.
- Graphic Design
- 3D Design
- Computer Science
Data is going to be the currency of the future as it can forecast the future of many issues and matters. It also can estimate the past of companies or individuals. According to a report published by IBM, 90% of the data at present was formed over the past two years, meaning that Data and information are constantly increasing.
Therefore, data and information science are among the most popular and sought-after specializations. Over time, international companies such as Google, Amazon, and others will need more such specializations graduates.
At the end of this article, do not let your motives stop you from enjoying your steps towards your desired future, considering your motive is what I claimed in the beginning.
