What is Engineering?

What is Engineering?

  • Engineering (According to Websters): The application of math and science by which the propertiesof matter and the sources of energy in nature are made usefulto people.
  • Engineering goes BEYOND a FIRM understanding of math and science. Engineers APPLY math and science for the betterment of society through: - Design - Manufacturing - Research & Development - Management - Continual Improvement - Logistics
  • Above all, engineers are problem solvers who make thingswork better, more efficiently, quicker and cheaper.
  • Engineers serve humanity with skill and dedication.

College Advice

What is Engineering?

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!!!

PLAY NOW or PLAY LATER

  • PLAY HARD in high school/college = short term gains. The rest of your financial life will suffer. Bad grades equals bad jobs.
  • WORK HARD in high school/college = long term gains. Study/dedication to classes has long term financial gains. Good grades equals the best jobs.

Challenge yourself in high school/college: + Study hard to make the best grades + Diversify your activities (sports, clubs, honor societies, social) + Volunteer, tutor younger students in your strongest subjects + GET INVOLVED + CO-OP

slide17
