What is engineering

What is Engineering?

  • Short Answer →Technical Product Creation

    • The Output of ALL Engineering is

      • The Solution to a Practical Problem

      • Fulfillment of a Practical Need

    • Long Answer → Technology Creation Through the Application of the Quantitative (Number-Based) Disciplines

      • Mathematics

      • Sciences; e.g., Physics, Chemistry, Biology

      • Empiricism (Experiments and Tests)


Engineering vs science

Engineering vs. Science

  • Engineering is Closely Related to Science & Math, but it is NOT the SAME

Scientists seek to UNDERSTAND WHAT IS, while Engineers seek to CREATE THAT WHICH NEVER WAS- Theodore von Kármán, CalTech Professor, and the Father of Modern AeroSpace Engineering


Engineer applied scientist

Engineer  Applied Scientist

Engineers take BASIC Scientific Discoveries and turn them into things that are USEFUL to people. In that role, Engineers are the agents of PROGRESS for Human Society

The First Laser

Engineer  Applied Scientist

  • Laser Sheet-Metal Cutting Machine

Engineering

Theodore Harold Maiman was born in 1927 in Los Angeles, son of an electrical engineer. He studied engineering physics at Colorado University, while repairing electrical appliances to pay for college, and then obtained a Ph.D. in Physics from Stanford in 1955. Theodore Maiman constructed this first laser in 1960 while working at Hughes Research Laboratories (T.H. Maiman, "Stimulated optical radiation in ruby lasers", Nature, 187, 493, 1960). There is a vertical chromium ion doped ruby rod in the center of a helical xenon flash tube. The ruby rod has mirrored ends. The xenon flash provides optical pumping of the chromium ions in the ruby rod. The output is a pulse of red laser light.

What is cool about engineering

What is COOL about Engineering?

  • Solving Challenging Problems

  • Opportunity to DESIGN, BUILD, and TEST Products that People ReallyUse

    • Engineering is a CREATIVE endeavor

      • The Root of the Word “Engineer” is Ingenium; Not Engine

  • Chance to Learn New Things

    • Engineering is about Progress; an Engineer’s Knowledge & Skills progress as well


What is cool about engineering cont 1

What is COOL about Engineering?Cont.1

  • Working with People

    • That’s Right; Not all Engineers are “Nerds”

    • Complex Technology Must Be Made Useful to the Non-Technical Person

    • Engineers, aside from applied Math/Sci, manage Projects and Organizations

      • Some of the BEST Managers in Recent Times have Been Engineers by Training

        • Andrew Grove of INTEL → Ph.D. Chem Eng

        • Jack Welch of GE → Ph.D. Chem Eng

        • James Morgan of Applied Matls → BS Mech Eng


What is cool about engineering cont 11

What is COOL about Engineering?Cont.1

  • Publishing Technical Papers

    • Thousands of Engineering/Technical Journals Publish The Results of Engineer’s Analyses, Designs, Experiments


What is cool about engineering cont 2

What is COOL about Engineering?Cont.2

  • Earning Patents

    • Earning A Patent Requires the Advancement of a Practical Art; This is what Engineers do

USA Constitution, Article 1, Section 8 (Powers Granted to Congress):

Clause 8: To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries


What is cool about engineering cont 21

What is COOL about Engineering?Cont.2

  • Engage in Professional Activities

    • Attend/Present-At Technical Conferences

    • Attend Trade-Shows

    • Society Membership (ASCE, IEEE, ASME)

  • See the World – Engineers often Travel

    • Special Knowledge/Skills Can often ONLY be Transmitted In-Person

      • Promote/Explain Product to Customers

      • Install Product, Train Users

      • -Site Product-Testing

The bottom line

The Bottom Line

  • There are VERY FEW Academic Disciplines Where One Can Move Into INDUSTRY with A Bachelor of Science (4yr) Degree

    • TWO Primary Categories

      • Engineering

      • Business

    • Difficult for Most Liberal Arts Disciplines

    • Somewhat Easier for the Sciences

California needs engineers

California Needs Engineers

  • Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has proposed an educational initiative that aims to boost by almost 50% the number of California-trained engineers during the next decade...

  • The goal of the Engineer Initiative is to bring 20,000 to 24,000 new engineers into the state's workforce. Even though the number of engineers in the state is expected to grow to 44,000 by 2014, there are too few graduatesto meet the demand forcivil, electronics, mechanical, aerospace and otherindustries, according to the state's Labor & Workforce Development Agency.
