What does it mean for you to be an engineer?
For me, an engineer is someone who applies their knowledge of science and math to develop solutions to problems. Engineers are consistently trying to improve on things or make things better, both of which are valuable characteristics in today’s world. Technology is changing so quickly and we are continuing to find ways make the world more energy efficient in order to conserve the world’s natural resources. I just hope in my engineering career I am able to make a significant contribution in making the world a better place.
