I am 24 years old and a graduate with my Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering from The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).
Why Am I an Engineer?
Because, it gives me the chance to build a dream.
Engineers work to develop economical and safe solutions to practical problems, by applying mathematics, scientific knowledge and ingenuity while considering technical constraints. The term is derived from the Latin root "ingenium," meaning "cleverness". The industrial revolution and continuing technological developments of the last few centuries have changed the connotation of the term slightly, resulting in the perception of engineers as applied scientists. The work of engineers is the link between perceived needs of society and commercial applications.
