I'm curious as to how many people who post here have engineering degrees.After reading alot of the posts it sounds as though there are alot of engineers out there.I'm a communications tech myself but I deal with alot of engineers.
I am....B.Eng and M.Eng in Civil Engineering (nm)SS_MB-7

BSEE and MBA. Worked for maybe six months as junior bench jockey (low guy on the totem pole) and decided I needed a job where I saw daylight occasionally. Switched to computer programming over 20 years ago and never looked back. Loved school but the real world wasn't nearly as interesting (no offense meant to those who chose to stay in the field.)

bs mechanical, all work experience is aeroelasticity, flutter, and vibration issues.

... a month or so ago we impressed the socks off NASA when we balloon-dropped a glider from 100,000 ft and it flew like a bird (about 50 kts IAS and about mach .6 TAS).

The competition was leaving town as we arrived. Their effort never pulled out of the initial dive when dropped, probably aeroelasticity problems, and broke up. We're told they found one wing on the drive home.

The project simulates a martian atmosphere, where the finished project is supposed to fly.

Were you out at Dryden for the test? I looked on their website but didn't see any info on what you're describing. Nothing like aeroelasticity. Was having to do that for the now canceled X-38.

Sounds like the competition fluttered during initial dive.

My sympathies if you have to work with engineers. My wife recently left an engineering firm. She couldn't deal with them any more. She was Assistant to the owner/president and in charge of HR. When she was looking for a new secretary the person asked what type of firm it was. My wife said it was an engineering firm. The woman said "Sorry, I don't work for engineers."

They are a different breed.
"iiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"? I thought it was "I-triple-E"!Tig

Worked with engineers of varying flavors for years as an admin. Have done 4 contract stints @ The Mothership itself (G.E.): Aircraft, Power Systems, 2x Access

They are a different breed indeed, but I must be compatible. Tho I've never been to college myself I'll admit to a strong bent of techweenieism that has merely been complicated by my stint as a shop rat in a pro level LBS. Too complicated and too expensive for me to bother with college when I can make enough as a typewriter pounder to afford all my toys, a place for them to sleep and transportation to take 'em all racing with.

Speaking of which, doing the secretarial thing also gives me plenty of spare time free for racing and training, since I get to leave at 4.30 most days, but my mgrs. often do not (that's worth an extra $20-30K in my book.

Currently working in IT... for a bunch of software engineers :)

Graduated in '72 with BS in Chemical Engineering, picked up a MBA along the way, now own a bakery supply business which has nothing to do with chemical engineering. Engineering can provide a great background and the discipline to pursue other interests.

BS Electrical Engineering Technology, Va Tech, '78.

ET is a little lighter in math than modern engineering curricula, heavier in lab work, more interdiciplinary, and we rarely get advanced degrees. We're each worth TWO engineers,
