There are a number of branches of applied science, although they typically fall into two main areas, engineering and healthcare.

Engineering can include any of the following:

• Agricultural
• Biomedical
• Chemical
• Civil
• Mechanical
• Nuclear
• Software

The healthcare branch of applied science can include the following areas:

• Biological engineering
• Medicine
• Nursing
• Social work
• Dentistry
• Veterinary medicine

Applied science is when a certain scientific knowledge is used to assist something that is physical. For example, medicine is classed as an applied science as the research that is done to create and improve medicines, is done so to assist with the needs of patients. Certain medicines can relieve pain, whilst others can cure the ailments altogether.
Applied science is very important for the development of technology, and involves the research and development of techniques vital to their development. Applied science is often the term referred to when discussing the science qualifications that can be achieved in a number of different science subjects, including physics and chemistry. This is so called because part of the course work involved in the subjects enables the student to apply theory that has been learned, and subsequently place that into a practical environment; performing experiments and creating solutions to problems using certain techniques.

The science that is most studied at schools is called fundamental science, and this, simply put, is the theory element of the subjects being studied. The science only becomes applied when the theories studied are put into action, in a practical way.

Applied science is vital to the way we live today, because of the testing that can be carried out to ascertain whether certain functions are able to be performed in the areas of engineering and healthcare.

There are two main ones, engineering and healthcare. And I can tell you that they also have several branches. Some of them can cross, and for instance, you can follow this link and see that when it comes to growing cannabis, it's both agriculture and medicine because it's also a great plant for your health.
