What is engineering? Engineers apply math and science for the betterment of society through: According to Webster’s Dictionary: Engineering The application of math and science by which the properties of matter and the sources of energy in nature are made useful to people. Design Manufacturing Research & Development Continual Improvement Management Logistics Above all, engineers are problem solvers who make things work better, more efficiently, quicker and cheaper.

Engineering Disciplines Major Disciplines • Mechanical • Electrical • Chemical • Civil • Industrial Other Disciplines • Automotive • Aerospace • Agricultural • Biomedical • Computer • Environmental • Materials • Nuclear • Robotics • Safety
Mechanical Engineering • Concerned with design, manufacture & operation of a wide range of components, devices, or systems: • microscopic parts (nanotechnology) to gigantic gears • heating, ventilation, refrigeration • manufacturing equipment (tanks, motors, pumps) • laser technology • biomedical applications • automotive industry • computer-aided design, automation, robotics Broadest of all the engineering disciplines in its range of activities
Chemical Engineering • Gasoline • Plastic • Energy (natural gas, oil heating, coal) • Adhesives • Clothing • Building Materials Applying chemistry to the solution of practical problems
Electrical Engineering Play a role in almost everything we interact with on a daily basis. They design smaller, cheaper, and better: • cell phones • computers • power systems • appliances • robots Apply specialized skill to the design, manufacture, application, installation, and operation of electrical products and systems.
Civil Engineering • Create solutions to cope with: • air quality issues • decaying cities, roadways and bridges • clogged airports and highways • polluted streams, rivers and lakes Design solutions to cope with many of our planet’s most serious problems.
Industrial Engineering • Design data processing systems • Integrate activities of finance, engineering and management • Develop systems for planning, cost analysis, production and quality of products Stresses design, improvement, and installation of integrated systems of people, material, and equipment for the effective production of goods or services in all types of industries
Good Traits for Engineers • • • • • • • • • • • Enjoy solving problems Like working with other people (strong teamwork skills) Interested in serving human needs Want to make things work better Strive for continual improvement Able to adapt to a changing environment Good communication skills Strong study skills Desire to constantly learn new things Data analysis skills Strong computer skills
College Entrance Requirements Required Algebra I & II Geometry Trigonometry Calculus Physics Chemistry Computer Programming Social Studies Foreign Languages Fine Arts/Humanities Highly Recommended – Not Required AP Chemistry AP Physics AP Calculus AP Biology Any Advanced Placement classes really help prepare you for college and in most cases drastically help “lighten your load.”
College Advice The next 2-3 years in high school and especially the following 4-8 years in college drastically impact the quality of your adult life!!!
Cooperative Education Typically a five year program with alternating periods of book learning (school) and application (work, typically in industry). Year Fall Spring Summer 1 School School School 2 Work Work Work 3 School School School 4 Work Work Work 5 School School School Benefits of a Cooperative Education • Pay for your college education ($36,000/YR or more) • Gain valuable experience, real engineering work • Increase your market value at graduation (considerably) • Usually assures job offer from co-op company • Offers well deserved and beneficial break from school!
Summary Engineers have been involved in almost everything you see, touch, or rely upon Engineering can be an exciting career full of opportunities Job market is generally good Pay and benefits are among the top for the level of education Opportunities for leadership, global travel, and benefiting humankind abound An engineering degree can open many doors to careers in other exciting areas such as medicine, law, business administration, PhD (research, teaching, etc.)
