What Engineering Engineering “It is a great profession. There is the fascination of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realization in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings jobs and homes to men. Then it elevates the standards of living and adds to the comforts of life. That is the engineer's high privilege.” Memoirs, Herbert C. Hoover, Vol. I, Years of Adventure: 1874 – 1920. Engineering Engineering Noun: The application of mathematics and sound scientific principles to the creation of products or services that benefit society. Verb: Designing, creating, testing, developing and improving products, knowledge, research, business, economics and technology Who are Engineers? Who Engineers Engineers Engineers are problem solvers who search for quicker, better and less expensive ways to use the forces and materials of nature to meet today’s challenges ASEE Engineers Engineers Strong in math, science and communication Enjoy knowing “how things work” and need to understand “why” Are able to make sense of complex concepts and explain them clearly to non-experts Work well with others Attributes of Successful Engineers Successful Possess strong analytical skills Possess Creativity and practical ingenuity Creativity Design to meet needs, constraints and objectives Design Ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems Ability Good communication skills with multiple stakeholders Good Good team skills w/ people from diverse backgrounds Good Leadership and management skills Leadership High ethical standards and a strong sense of professionalism High Dynamic/agile/resilient/flexible Dynamic/agile/resilient/flexible Use the techniques and tools used in engineering practice Use Ability to recognize the global, economic, environmental, and Ability societal impact of engineering design and analysis Herbert Clark Hoover Herbert August 10, 1874 – August October 20, 1964 Thirty First President of Thirty the United States Herbert Hoover Herbert And mining And engineer!

Engineering Careers Engineering Engineering offers more career options than any other discipline. It is a profession that can take you from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space, from within the microscopic structures of the human cell to the top of the tallest skyscrapers. Whether it’s cell phones, digital cameras, DVDs, or facial recognition devices that can pick out a terrorist in a crowded football stadium, engineers are behind almost all of today’s exciting technology.
