Welcome To My Engineering Blog!

Hi, engineering students, and welcome to my engineering blog!   This is my first blog ever so over time I will be experimenting with pictures, widgets and appearances.  It is going to be a work in progress and thus far its been a great learning experience.  My main concern is to share practical and relevant pointers with you.  I understand, on many levels, how difficult it is to be in your shoes.  The guidance I provide in this engineering blog contains information I wish I would have known back then…

I have earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in engineering from 2 major universities.  I enjoyed math and science in high school so engineering seemed to be a good choice.  What I didn’t realize, however, was that my engineering curriculum ended up being more demanding and grueling than I ever imagined.  After this shocking realization, I had to learn how to balance my humanness with the rigor of an engineering environment at the university level.  I created both successes and failures along the way.  But, as an observer of people, I noticed a common theme among many of my fellow student engineers.  We were often suppressing our human thoughts and feelings at the expense of earning our degrees.

If this scenario feels familiar, keep reading my engineering blog because I promise, it’s not just you!
