Take a second and do a google image search on the word “engineering”.
What do you see?
A lot of gears…
Guys wearing hard hats…
And what are they doing? Where are they? Maybe offices, construction sites? Did you see anything that surprised you? Probably not!
The point here is that the public perception of engineering is still very one dimensional.
The work that we do at Engineers of Tomorrow is designed to change perceptions. But how do we do that, and what does it MEAN to change someone’s mind?
First of all, our goal is NOT to try and convince everyone to become an engineer!
All we are really trying to do is opening people’s mind in the context of seeing engineering in a new light.
The reality is that engineering is very multi dimensional.
Engineers help people.
Engineers make the world a better place.
Engineers turn ideas into reality.
And, there’s a place for you in engineering.
It can mean a lot of different things for a lot of different people!
What does engineering mean to you?
