3 Great WordPress Themes for an Engineering Website

3 Great WordPress Themes for an Engineering Website

Here are three of the best WordPress themes for an engineering site.


NorTech sounds either like an Engineering theme or a serious engineering school! Thankfully for us, it’s a thoroughly modern WP theme that’s worth strong consideration for any engineers or companies involved with industrial construction works.

The drag and drop theme, which is available through theme seller, ThemeForest, has noted that ThemeArc, the creators of this theme, are Elite Authors. The theme has been noted as meeting the current standards for a WP theme too. It’s fully compatible with Gutenberg, the new page builder that comes with the latest version of WordPress. It is also compatible with many widgets to add greater on-page and on-post functionality too.

There are four different responsive designs available for the home page to alter how a site will appear. It presents well on a mobile device too which is essential now. Each is carefully designed with subtle use of whites and light grays to not get in the way of the copy on the page and images added for emphasis. The designers have clearly studied the industry to use a suitable color palette and modern yet somewhat minimalistic design that will hold considerable appeal within this industry’s audience.

The King Composer Pro drag and drop page builder is included in case you don’t wish to use Gutenberg at all. Using it, it’s possible to create new pages to your own specification if the ones already designed in this theme are not exactly to your liking. The theme is tested with WPML for multi-language support and Contact Form 7, the popular contact form WP plugin from ThemeIsle.

The NorTech theme is available for $49 from ThemeForest.


The Industrial theme lives up to its name by representing sites in various engineering-related disciplines that includes industrial work but equally can apply to other areas like electrical power engineering too.

The ThemeChampion developers have sold over 1,000 copies of this theme already, which is a good sales record for this category. It’s no wonder though because its design includes a very capable, sensible design on the home page across four alternative home page designs available. There are also pre-designed pages for the team, recent projects, testimonials and a company blog too. All pages for the site are responsive for viewing on different screen sizes including smartphones and tablets too. The images used are Retina Ready for iPad use without pixelization when zooming in. Google Web Fonts and Font Awesome icons are supported too.

The Visual Composer drag and drop page builder is included with this release. It’s one of the most frequently used third-party page builders on the market today. The theme has been tested with WPML for multiple language support, WooCommerce for e-commerce sales, and Contact Form 7. It’s also fine when using right-to-left languages like Arabic too.

The Industrial theme is offered through ThemeForest for $49.


The Build WP theme from SKT Themes is ideal for an engineering firm that’s involved in the construction industry. The theme has an organized feel to it that’s business-like without being stuffy. The main menu on the right-hand side coupled with the logo and contact details above it is very functional.

There’s space for a site-wide single image or image slider with multiple photo slides setting the stage for what the business does. This can be an image of the latest project, a past completed project or something else entirely. Below this are three boxes which individually highlight when moving a mouse or a finger on a phone over them. These take you to the main three areas of your business which could be pages like “Construction,” “Latest Projects,” and “Services.”

The theme loads quickly because it’s designed using both HTML5 & CSS3. It has many customizable features through the options once the premium theme is installed. There’s also access to more than 100 shortcodes to quickly insert special features within a page or post using the new WordPress editor, Gutenberg.

The Build theme at the time of writing sells for $39 through SKT Themes.

Interested in Becoming an Engineer?

Has seeing these engineering WP themes whet your appetite for becoming an engineer for real?

To get into engineering, it’s useful to study for an engineering management masters online. This provides the requisite engineer knowledge required along with providing insights into how to manage other people once on the job. Rising up through the ranks shouldn’t be too difficult when you have a degree like this. These types of degrees don’t usually take much more than 18-24 months when you already have a bachelors in a related subject. Once completed, a high paying engineering career is your future. As long as you have the kind of mind for the technical side of engineering, which is very facts and figures oriented, along with strong attention to detail, then it might be a career that fits well.

With engineering WP themes, it’s not easy to pick good ones. Whilst there are some templates, there are not that many well-designed WordPress themes. It’s important to choose themes that have been updated reasonably recently and receive new updates from time to time too. This is because WP updates its core functionality occasionally due to bug fixes, security problems, and feature improvements. Any theme that isn’t being regularly updated falls behind the development cycle and can end up being a security risk. Therefore, it’s important to not use a theme (or a WP plugin for that matter) that hasn’t been updated in years, as this could let hackers into your site eventually.
