Life with Moore Babies: E is for Engineer - 0 views

  •  
    "E is for Engineer The Community Helper I chose for E is Engineer; mainly because that is what their Daddy is. He is a computer engineer though, and I couldn't think of much to do with that! However there are many, many other types of engineers! To me an engineer would be someone who applies scientific and mathematical knowledge to design something with a purpose. "

    "Engineering offers more career options than any other discipline. It's 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, DVD's, 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. 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. Engineering students have their pick of many fields. From electrical to civil to aeronautical to biomedical, every discipline within engineering will lead to an exciting and rewarding career. In this activity, you will research one type of engineering"

    "Materials Science and Engineering major, with concentrations offered in Biomaterials and Nanotechnology. As expected, the program provided a solid grounding in what materials science really is. Students explore materials from the atomic level all the way through crystal structures, multiphase systems, and bulk properties. You'll have an opportunity to learn why objects' matter matters. You'll explore the details of why glass shatters, metal bends, and rubber bounces back-and that's just in one class on mechanical properties. If you're more interested in how the circuits in your computer are fabricated, or why hip replacements are made of titanium instead of aluminum, you won't even have to go looking for courses in other departments. Materials Science is one of the most fundamental, and therefore most interdisciplinary, fields that exists today. In many core classes, you'll find more students from other majors than from the department itself."

    "I originally stumbled into the environmental engineering major because I could write a good college essay about it (not kidding). Once I actually began researching the major, I decided it was for me. Environmental engineering is a relatively new field that is guaranteed to grow in the future because of an increased demand to go green (aka job openings). I have always loved the outdoors and want to have a job where I can help people and not be stuck behind a desk, which I believe I can find in the environmental engineering field."

    "my engineering classes. "Perspectives on the Evolution of Structures" was definitely one of my favorites. It is taught by Dr. Schafer, my adviser and head of the department, and is typically taken by freshmen in their spring semester. The course covers the three "E"s of civil engineering design: economy, elegance, and efficiency. It's cross-listed through MICA, so you get the best of both engineering and artistic perspectives, while going through a history of design principles."

    "I also chose mechanical engineering because it is a very broad major. Graduating with a MechE degree opens a variety of career paths. Relevant post-grad job topics include cars, airplanes, heating and cooling systems, manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, robots, medical devices and much more. I like the idea that I was leaving my options open by being a MechE. Last, it seems to me that with the technology advancements and global problems of today, mechanical engineers will be at the forefront of these solutions. I am not positive what I want to do when I graduate, but I am interested in alternative energy, especially wind technology. I like to think I am going to solve the world's energy problems."

    "the factors that determine which "someday" entrepreneurs will actually become business owners, and which will continue to say "I wish" for years to come. Surprisingly, the ability to take the plunge has a lot less to do with people's personalities, and a lot more to do with how accessible and familiar the experience of entrepreneurship is to them. Those who can picture themselves running a business often do."
