(Britannica 243) Another disadvantage of being an engineer is the actual status of being one. It is not looked upon as highly as other fields such as doctors and lawyers. Most of the time they are looked upon as nerds. In addition, most engineers are not promoted to high level positions such as presidents or top executives.Take a look around yourself. What do you see? Maybe books, chairs, a television, or even your clothes. All the day to day things that are man-made, you can be sure that an engineer helped make it. Engineers have shaped our world as we know it. There are many different kinds of engineers from chemical, mechanical, textile, civil, agricultural and structural engineers. Our civilization would be as advanced as the Stone Age without these people. This career demands a wide education of math and science. It is an ever-changing career with new advances in materials and the way products are produced. Engineering careers are very secure with respect to compensation. Regardless of this, it does have it’s disadvantages…show more content…
Cat too many books perhaps what you mean is not enough bookshelves poster
They do not have the accounting or business education to do that particular job. This means that most engineers never get the opportunity to be their own boss. (Basta 22) The job of an engineer itself is a creative job. The actual definition of an engineer is “The profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to utilize the materials and forces of nature economically for the benefit of mankind.” (Bastas 24) In having the basic skills and experiences in math and science, an engineer is basically an inventor. They are given a problem and are depended on to come up with a solution. Whether it be a new chemical, a mechanical part, or even a whole new system such as computer operating program, engineers are the problem solvers of our materialistic society. (Basta 45) Many engineers work in laboratories, industrial plants, or construction sites where they inspect, supervise, or solve onsite problems. (Britannica 244) Engineering itself has a sort of chain of command in the way a project is handled. It follows in the The career that I have chosen to research is engineering.
Where to get it?
Ever since I was young I thought that the idea of being an engineer was amazing. I am the type of person who like building, creating, and solving solutions. What made me more interested in engineering was talking to engineers and job shadowing. During my junior year of high school I decided to do job shadowing at a company called Buhler Aeroglide. Their goal was to create machines to dry food for humans and pets. Even though that is not the field of engineering I would like to work in I still had the chance to understand what an engineer does on a daily basis. Engineering is basically solving problems through the use of math and science. From what I have learned, Engineering is the professional art of applying science to the optimum conversion of the resources of nature to benefit man(ihbapol). engineering requires a lot of hard work for a high reward which I am willing to do. With nascar located in Charlotte, North Carolina, there are a lot of motorsport engineering opportunities which is something that I would be very interested in.
