Ya noe what type? material engineering? jz askin coz interested in goin into this field..
If you are interested in the developed in sports apparel and more specifically football boots, you need to look down a mechanical or a sports engineering degree path in university/college, the only problem is that sports engineering is only offered in very few universities/colleges and there are many different disciplines ie. mechanical, civil etc.
The types of subjects you would need to look to do are biomechanics, mechatronics, human anatomy, design. Engineers these days are expected to know a bit of everything within their discipline so there arent many specific engineers like 'material engineers' as a person who has a mechanical eng degree for example shold know what materials are applicable for each situation they face.
If you want to know more about sports engineering in general go to www.sportengineering.com
and it has everything you would like to know, like where they offer the discipline, lucky enough i was able to do sports engineering as my home city was the first to have it as a university degree within australia. Its very interesting and boring at the same time because unfortunately there is large quantities of mathematics involved.
