  1. CSU East Bay Engineering Welcome to the World of Engineering Luis Alcazar Mechanical Engineering B.S.luis.alcazar@csueastbay.edu

  2. EDUCATION, Luis Alcazar • Napa Valley College • Mechanical Engineering Transfer • Class of 2002 • UC Berkeley • Mechanical Engineering, B.S. • Class of 2005 • Engineer in Training Certificate, 2007

  3. Professional History • Nova Group Napa, CA 2004-2006 • Assistant Engineer • Owens-Illinois Oakland, CA 2006-2007 • Management Trainee • Tuthill Pump Concord, CA 2007-2009 • Design Engineer • CSU East Bay Hayward, CA Present • MESA Academic Coordinator

  4. 10 HARDEST Jobs to Fill in the USA Engineers Nurses Skilled/Manual Trades Teachers Sales Representatives Technicians Drivers Information Tech Staff Laborers Machinist/Machine Operators http://manpower.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=62

  5. Outline • Short Self Introduction by Presenter (me) • Answer to the Question “Why is it so Cool?” • The BOTTOM LINE • The $ & ¢ of an Engineering Career • Answer to the Question “Why CSU East Bay?”

  6. 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)

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. What is COOL about Engineering?Cont.1 • Publishing Technical Papers • Thousands of Engineering/Technical Journals Publish The Results of Engineer’s Analyses, Designs, Experiments

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. Duomo Di Milano- Milan

  13. City Skyline– Shanghai

  14. 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

  17. Instructional Effectiveness • UC Berkeley CoE • UC DAVIS CoE • Community College transfer Students Graduate at Essentially the SAME rate as students UC “Native” Students

  18. ClassRoom Performance  GPA • Per R. Giomi, Asst. Dean At the UCBerkeley College of Engineering • Grades Earned for 3rd & 4th Year Students are Statistically INDISTINGUISHABLE Between Native & Transfer Students

  19. Why Cal State East bay? • Great Faculty, Great Support • Local California State University • SHPE, NSBE, MESA • Only Construction Management BS in Bay Area

  20. Majors at Cal State East Bay • Computer Engineering, B.S. • Industrial Engineering, B.S. • Construction Management, B.S • Engineering Management, M.S. • Construction Management, M.S.

  24. 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.
