I am an engineering Junior soon to be senior at my school and I have a cumulative gpa of 3.4. I work as a Co-op or a so called Intern at a plant. I work under a plant engineer. I like my boss and I love my job but sometimes I feel worthless like I can not design anything. My boss tells me to design a bridge for our catwalk in our plant. I try and try to come up with ideas to make the bridge rise and lower with a pulley system and a pneumatic cylinder but my boss always says it will not work and he is probably right but I keep trying and I will never give up. So is there any sources out there that can help me design items in a plant better. Or something I can look to for Ideas because in school we do not design anything we just do math calculations. Which I like both but I need more work on designing things. Is there a book or something that I can read that will help me design things in a plant better. Or any articles that I can read to find out ideas of how things are designed in a plant.
What would be the title of an engineering job that deals with volcanoes, volcanic activity, and seismic activity?
I am interested in being an engineer there, and I want to know what I should study for it.
Engineering jobs meaning Civil, ect.
I'm currently a Sophomore in a Mechanical engineering major. I really want a hands on job but it seems that most engineering involves being behind a desk. I enjoy working with hand tools, taking things apart, putting them together and I really like to be creative and try different things (like inventing or improving or building something). Are there many Engineering jobs that I would actually be able to be mostly hands on and creative in? And if so what would they be?
I know that there are many different areas of engineering, but does it matter what engineering degree i take? can i still get other engineering jobs if i take a civil engineering course?
and are there much job oppertunities in london for young civil engineers?
I'm a first year chemical engineering students. I've been offered a job from a company that fabricated pipes for BASF and DOW chemical plants. I don't know if it will look good on my resume when I later apply for an engineering job.
How to jump start a career in Human Resources in Houston Texas?
I have an MBA in Human Resources and MIS (Management Information Systems), BA in psychology. Only 4 months of experience as an HR admin (temporary assignment) and 2.5 years of experience in QA for a medical device company (just quitted the job because they wanted me to work second shift and decided to stay home with my two year old baby). It has been HARD for me to get a job in HR in Puerto Rico because they all ask for at least 3 years in HR. My husband and I are thinking that we could relocate to Cypress, TX. He is a power plant engineer and I am sure he will find a job but ...Do I stand a chance in Houston Texas or should I quit my interests and stay at home with my two year old? It is NOT easy being a mom and pursue a dream career! Do you think it is the end road for me and I have wasted my time with an MBA? Please advise and be sincere.
Aside from being a plant engineer, project engineer, etc...how can a mech. engineering degree be applied to other fields?
My university unfortunately doesn't have a nuclear major. They have every other engineer type of major. What would be the most compatible discipline, so I can become one? Also is it true they make the most out of all engineer jobs.
I'm currently in my first year in college and I am stuck between these two majors. My main factor is location, and I heard from my dad that chemical engineering jobs are mostly located outside of main cities; this is a problem because I want to live in a big city. And any other info about these two majors would be nice :)
I know this probably sounds like a stupid question, but beyond the good pay and prestige, does your engineering job make you happy? Have you made good friends at your company? Do you enjoy your job? Give me details.
I am considering a career in civil engineering, and while I am very good at math and am creative, I am concerned that engineering will either be too business oriented for me (im not a business person at all) or I will feel all couped up in an office everyday. What do you think?
I'm a Chemical Engineer fresh out of college and I couldn't find a job. I took a job with a local Ethanol plant, but they wouldn't give me an engineering job. Instead they hired me as basically an operator, and paying me $28k a year. This is a far cry from the average entry level pay of $65k. I have the opportunity to apply to an engineering job, but I'm worried the fact i've only worked there 1 month will look bad. What do you think?
I am a student in college and i have recently applied for a
co-op job in a engineering plant something like Delphi or Dow chemical. I need an objective to put on my resume and I'm not sure what to exactly start with or put, I do know that the objective has to do something with the co-op position and my education, but I can not talk about how it would benifit me? any ideas on how to help...or even a start?
I am worried that once i get my degree i will have to move around a lot to keep jobs. i have heard that some engineers go from project to project moving around a ton. i was wondering if anyone knows if it is easy to find a mechanical engineering job that would allow me to stay in one spot and settle down?
After 115 years , GE is CLOSING their waukesha wisconsin x-ray plant COSTING 65 ENGINEERS THEIR JOBS to Beijing .They expect to spend 2 billion in a new plant in China. GE made 5 billion last year in the US AND PAID NO TAXES....GE's CEO JEFF IMMELT IS OBAMA'S JOBS CZAR!
I'm looking into going into EE this coming fall, and Ive been looking into it. Ive been looking at jobs to see how they are doing in the hard economy, and most of them say you need at least 5 years experience. How would you go about getting a job straight out of college? Also, I heard some people on a forum saying how EE was a dying field, is this true? Thanks
I'm planning on majoring in chemical engineering in college, and I'm just curious as to what kind of setting chemical engineers work in. I know some work in offices and some in labs (or a combination of the two), but for me, and office setting where I can do calculations and design sounds more preferable. What kind of industry (such as pharmaceutical, manufacturing, and etc.) has chemical engineers primarily in this setting, or does the industry not matter?
I am considering on joining one of the two branches and want to know what is better for my future. I am planning on becoming a mechanical engineer, which I believe is more Navy-related and was just curious what Marines do that differs from the Navy. I am also wondering if sailors also train with Marines at boot camp and what the Navy Seal does.
I like math and chemistry and have done well in both thus far, so I was thinking of becoming an engineer, but what type should I become? I want my career to be interesting, and I don't think I want to work with architecture or robotics. Should I even become an engineer? Thanks.
Also, what courses of study should I pursue?
I'm a senior in college and want to be an engineer but I can't decide which one. I really want to do something that will help improve the environment. I know there is environmental engineering but from what I've read it's mostly dealing with the sewage system. Help is much appreciated, thank you.
* I'm a senior in high school, not college, sorry about that. Big typo
