Seeking Engineering Stories

We’re now 10 episodes in The Engineering Commons. We’ve talked to many great guests and had some really interesting discussions from a high level. Our hope is that we can continue to interview people working on big issues in engineering, across all disciplines.

But we’re also looking for the commonality among all engineers. And most engineers are doing smaller, yet still quite important work. So if you think you work in a particularly interesting industry or have an interesting engineering anecdote that would be of interest to all types of engineers, we would love to hear from you.

Engineering is ultimately built upon the people that work in the industry. We want to hear your stories.

So, leave us a comment or send us an email and let us know if you or someone you know might be a good fit for TEC. We can’t promise a spot to everyone, but we promise we’ll check into every story. Thanks!

One thought on “Seeking Engineering Stories”

  1. Spent 4 years in high school developing land and sea based robots for competitions. Studied 5 (five) years at CSU Chico for Mechatronic Engineering, graduating in Spring of 2012. During the last 2 (two) years of college, I interned at a company which developed robotic systems for a government lab in California. In my last year of college, I was contracted as an Engineering Consultant with Volvo Monitoring and Concept center to design and realize two projects, one of which is patented and on it’s way to final approval. Currently, I am in another 4 (four) month contract for Volvo Monitoring and Concept Center to design an realize 1 (one) if not more projects.

    Over the years, I have dealt with mechanical, electrical, and computer systems to many different levels to grasp what I feel is an over all solid general knowledge base. This is, in my mind, the most important part of being an engineer. The conceptual understand allows you to understand the system before running the numbers and from there one can research the specifics and or contact specialists in the field for further information.

    In the current world of engineering, it is impossible to be well versed in the details of any field to an extent that one could dive into any project and have all the resources required. Knowing the conceptual details as well as where to find the information is key in the modern world.

    Thank you for your time, best regards.
