Common Questions
Take turns building an invention for your own contest. The judge (like your mom) will...
Judge stuff. Whoever gets a 10 wins.
I like being an engineer because you can build stuff... If it's a weapon, it'll get sent to the army!
They build cool stuff. Someday
they can make more... (Flying cars, 3D holograms, portal guns, blah, blah, blah.)
Dear Riverson,
What's your favorite color?
Dear AI PC,
That has absolutely nothing to do with engineering!

Work Experience
Are we done here!?
He's always working.
The Professional Life of

What an engineer does
It's true!
Yeah, you can build a lot
of robots.
Sometimes you even work 24/7!
After a long day of building, I like to relax by building more.
The best and worst thing about an engineer is that...
Engineering is a broad discipline which is often broken down into several sub-disciplines. These disciplines concern themselves with differing areas of engineering work. Although initially an engineer will usually be trained in a specific discipline, throughout an engineer's career the engineer may become multi-disciplined, having worked in several of the outlined areas. Engineering is often characterized as having four main branches:[15][16][17]

Chemical engineering – The application of physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering principles in order to carry out chemical processes on a commercial scale, such as petroleum refining, microfabrication, fermentation, and biomolecule production.
Civil engineering – The design and construction of public and private works, such as infrastructure (airports, roads, railways, water supply and treatment etc.), bridges, dams, and buildings.
Electrical engineering – The design and study of various electrical and electronic systems, such as electrical circuits, generators, motors, electromagnetic/electromechanical devices, electronic devices, electronic circuits, optical fibers, optoelectronic devices, computer systems, telecommunications, instrumentation, controls, and electronics.
Mechanical engineering – The design of physical or mechanical systems, such as power and energy systems, aerospace/aircraft products, weapon systems, transportation products, engines, compressors, powertrains, kinematic chains, vacuum technology, and vibration isolation equipment.
Beyond these four, sources vary on other main branches. Historically, naval engineering and mining engineering were major branches. Modern fields sometimes included as major branches[citation needed] include manufacturing engineering, acoustical engineering, corrosion engineering, Instrumentation and control, aerospace, automotive, computer, electronic, petroleum, systems, audio, software, architectural, agricultural, biosystems, biomedical,[18] geological, textile, industrial, materials,[19] and nuclear[20] engineering. These and other branches of engineering are represented in the 36 institutions forming the membership of the UK Engineering Council.
An engineer
Dear Riverson,
Do engineers know everything?
- Keegan
Dear Keegan,
No. They only have enough knowledge to build
robots and stuff. (Like me.)
- Riverson
A day without building is like a day without chips.
