I became an engineer because the engineering profession is constantly tasked with solving the world’s problems, to both shape and create the future as we know it. Working for a commissioning firm, I am given the opportunity to face unique problems on a daily basis, while being provided with the tools and the expertise to solve them. Through HEA, I am able to see how the opportunities I have been given have an impact on the shape and the future of New York City.
In engineering, you never stop learning! You are exposed to new ideas, systems, equipment, techniques, and a whole variety of other items you would never encounter working in a different field. You’re a composite…You’re not a scientist, or an economist, or a writer; but you collaborate and use knowledge across all of these fields to solve engineering problems. My advice to aspiring engineers would be to branch out…take other classes, learn other subjects, but most of all, learn to love learning.
