I started a small company with a few college buddies 2 years ago. We mostly do drawings, designs and layouts for mechanical products and steel products. My mother called my a while ago and asked if I could help my brother out. He's 20, dropped out of college and doesn't know what he wants. So I arranged for him to come and live with me and I got him a great job as a mechanical designer. Most people need to go 4-5 years in college for that job.
Unfortunately for me he isn't doing a good job. Every time I walk by his office it's facebook, a flashgame or something else. I don't mind if people read a magazine to rest a bit or whatever. But I wonder how many hours of actual work he does. His slacking off is showing. We're only 6 people and my partners told me to talk to him. Cause the company is going great and we have a TON of work. If he's not going to step up then we need to hire someone who will. I've done him a huge favor but family is family and business is business. He's not a teenager anymore ffs. Being in this position sucks and I don't know how to deal with it?
I have my bachelor's in Industrial Design, and I have a job as a product designer. At my job I do a lot of engineering because I design culinary and kitchen products. I'm not exactly happy where I am in my job and see there are more career opportunities for people with engineering degrees vs people with Industrial Design degrees. Most people dont even know what Industrial Design is. Would it benefit to add a Mechanical Engineering degree to my Industrial Design background?
How much does a car designer get paid and how do you become a chief designer?
^^^ all i know is a chief designer is head of a car design and get paid ALOT more than a regular designer.
whats exactly is it and how u become the CHEIF designer..
I am in first sem. of engineering in mechanical branch. I am concerned as the placements for mech. engineers dont look good when compared to other branches like Electronics, Computer Science, Info. Science. The newspapers also show a minimum of 7-10years experience for Mechanical Engineers.
I am an above average student. However the number of vacancies available scare the hell out of me. From a batch of 160 Mech. Engineers only 25 were placed. This is really aweful.
On the other hand is there anything more than academics that I could do to stand out from the rest :P ?
I'm in mechanical, but industrial engineering appeals to me as well. I was wondering if a mechanical engineering degree could qualify one to do the work of an industrial engineer.
Ive always wanted to be a weapons designer but i dont now what i should major in to become one.
I go to a school that's not heavily recruited. But I'm still pulling a 3.9 GPA in ME. I want a hard job in engineering that will let me travel and make me think! For the time being I'd love to just get experience as an intern or at a part time job. Shoot - I'd even slow down my degree progress if I could land an interesting full time position. But I can't seem to find them - internships, part time, or full-time jobs. Everyone wants someone who has five or more years of experience.
Are you an engineer? Do you recruit them? What do you suggest? Thank you!
What is the job title of the person who designs the car engine, not the exterior, but like the innards.
Lots of people are intelligent but don't get on particularly well in school. I have a fairly high IQ, and I like learning things on my own, but I just don't like the academic environment. Unfortunately, so many jobs require degrees nowadays.
Maybe we can brainstorm some ideas? We're looking for jobs that require intelligence, but no degree.
I used to work for this company and now they are offering me a contract job. they are offering 36/hr...with responsibility of training and getting jobs done as well. i use inventor to design products. is this offer reasonable?
I scored a 60 on the asvab my recruiter gave me a list of jobs including graphic arts. This was really the only job I could think of that might be like drafting, PLEASE HELP I HAVE TO CHOOSE SOON!! It would help to have answers from someone familiar with the air force or maybe pursuing the same job in the air force, THANKS!
I work in automotive engineering and the job/environment is stifling. I need a more creative outlet. Industrial design seems perfect to me, but I don't know how to get my foot in the door. Everyone wants a portfolio. I have no clue. Help.
Like people who designe new firearms, artillery, tanks etc.? What course did they usually study during their college years in order to become a weapons designer?
I am curious as to what an engineering group or team is made up of? Like the different types of engineers and leaders and what their jobs are and how they work together.
I am going into the engineering field and would like to expand my interest in how this works.
Is it gunsmith? I'm talking about someone who actually designs the guns, not fixes them. Where could you look into that kind of job?
What would the name of the job be for someone that designs the cars/motorcycles for big-name car companies such as Honda? What potential college degrees would you need for those jobs? What are some good schools to go to to learn car designing in the united states?
I'm a high school senior and I intend on getting a mechanical engineering degree in college. I plan on going to Indiana my freshman year in college (hopefully Purdue). What steps do I need to take so I can design (mechanically and visually) for example Corvettes, mustangs, camaros,911, m3,C63 ,GTR or any sport or performance variant car. I'm open to any automaker I just want to bring my knowledge of cars to college and build my skills to the fullest so I can make the fastest and best performing cars in the world! I will do anything it takes, even if it means transferring colleges, changing degrees, or even moving across the world.
Also, what is the job availability in this field, starting salary, and is it realistic?
I'm going to be an awesome badass interior designer mostly commercial design ideally and right now i'm still finishing school and I have 2 years to graduate. I have a kid and I need a job that pays, not only that i'm pretty passionate about what I want to do and just need some random advice because, not alot of people around me have a clue about what i want to do which isnt bad whatever I love 'em.
I'm currently a student in the US and I really want to do mechanical engineering for ferrari. How would I go about doing this?
