28 August 2006 886 words Reflecting on Dominant Images Dominant images affect people everyday. One would be lying if they said their culture has not been influenced by the way in which they perceive other people. Like other important professions, there are many images of what an engineer should be. Engineers that are truly passionate about their work all share some similar characteristics. Whether it is the need for facts, factual-based problem solving, the desire to toy with gadgets, engineers are a special breed of human society. Myself being an engineer, I admit that I fall into some of these engineering stereotypes. In my examination of my characteristics and beliefs concerning engineering, I will show how the decision was made for me to pursue engineering and how this course will help me in my future. I feel that taking this course will reveal the true intentions of most engineers throughout history, and will also serve as a way to relate my ideas to engineers of the past and present. I believe that this course will show how the plight of engineers and how their hard work has made the world into what it is today. Also, I think I will understand more about the conflicts between engineers and non-engineers in society.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
