Are you a dreamer? A thinker? A doer? Engineering is about being all three. It’s a discipline heavily dependent on advanced math, science and technology, but that’s not all.

Believe it or not, it’s about thinking creatively. It’s about communicating. It’s about working in teams.

As an engineer — whether biomedical, chemical and life science, computer, electrical or mechanical and nuclear — people will turn to you to solve problems in the world of commerce, medicine and technology.
