On this World Engineering Day, we are celebrating how engineers make the world a better place. And we asked a few of our members – what would you share with a student today who is considering engineering as a career?

Here’s what they said:

“Being an engineer is amazing; you simultaneously create history and the future with each design and project.”

“If you like problem solving, on computers, or with your hands, you might have the knack. Sometimes if you like to figure out how things work or how to make things better, that can be a career for you.”

“Engineering is a life long adventure and learning experience.

“Don’t be afraid to step outside the technical world to understand how your work is impacting the world around you.”
