Transcript of EGN1006 - Lecture 3 - Choosing a Major

Surviving Engineering * Tools sounds better than toys What does an engineer do? Seriously....
like hour-to-hour
and year-to-year 7:00AM Head to work
Think about stuff that has to get done. 8:00AM Say "HI!" to people Check out calendar
Catch up on emails 9:00AM Get some Coffee Talk to more people Get stuff ready for meeting 10:00AM Product 1 Meeting Send some emails 11:00AM Review Product 2 engineering specification 12:00PM LUNCH Talk to customer about specification Talk to manager about Product 1 Stop by manufacturing to see
how last years product is going Informal meeting with team 1:00PM 2:00PM 3:00PM 4:00PM 6:00PM 7:00PM 8:00PM Product 2 Meeting More Coffee Talk with people Go to testing lab to gather data Analyze the data Realize specification has to change Work on Engineering Specifications for
Product 1 and 2 Head home for the day A Day as an Engineer Choosing a Major and Selecting Classes Read Chapter 4
It's full of great information about this subject Let me give you my take on Engineering A Year as an Engineer January February March April May June July August September October November December Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Product 1 Product 2 Research New Product Product 3 Manufacture Product 2 Testing Product 1 Pulled into Product X So what does an Engineer do? They make Products What type of engineer made these products?
Call it out if you know... Civil Engineer
Overall structural Electrical Engineer
Lighting and Load Sensors System Computer Engineer
Load Sensors Software
Lighting System Control
Traffic Sensing and Control Aerospace Engineer
Wind Effects Design Environmental Engineer
Waste Water Treatment Design Civil Engineer
Overall Construction Design Mechanical Engineer
Water flow Control Mechanisms Electrical Engineer
Sensor Feedback and Control Systems Computer Engineer
Software Control System Mechanical Engineer
Structural Design Every type of Engineer you can think of Most
Products Mechanical Engineer Electrical Engineer Computer Engineer First...a Clarification Computer Engineers design computers
Combines electrical and software
Software Computer Science
Theoretical foundation of computation
Design algorithms
Software However, industry often lumps these together.
Not everyone would agree but its true.
For this discussion I will use "Computer Engineer" for both.
They call the THE PROGRAMMERS Back to it.... Specialized
Product Electrical Engineer Mechanical Engineer Computer Engineer Aerospace Engineer Number of Jobs
Available Mechanical Electrical Computer Civil Aerospace Materials Industrial Environmental Specialization Broad Narrow Construction What Major Should I be in? First 2 years everyone takes the same thing. Follow your interests Coming up this semester you will hear
from each engineering department Next semester you will hear from
engineering faculty and working engineers Don't worry about changing majors just yet
Get more informed
Then decide So Teams of Engineers
Build Products. $ $$ Specialization comes in Graduate School BS + BS NOT EQUAL TO MS
