1
  • Engineering Fundamentals

2
Presentation Goals
  • Fundamental Skills of an Engineer
  • Types of Engineering
  • Potential Career Paths
  • Answer Questions

3
Engineering Defined
  • Webster says..The application of science and
    mathematics by which the properties of matter and
    the sources of energy in nature are made useful
    to man in structures, machines, products, systems
    and processes..blah, blah, blah
  • Kevin says.engineering is everything manmade
    that surrounds you.

4
General Characteristics
  • Taken from Engineering Fundamentals and
    Problem Solving
  • Strong interest in and ability to work with math
    and science
  • Ability to think through a problem in a logical
    manner
  • Knack for organizing and carrying through to
    conclusion the solution to a problem
  • An unusual curiosity about how and why things work
