Are You a Student Looking for Engineering Practical Skills?

Dec 8, 2020

PES Training Program - Practical Engineering Design - StudentsAre you a recent engineering graduate looking for a next step?  Sure, you've probably learned how to design, realize, operate, maintain and retire systems - but did you learn any practical skills?

Todays engineering industry is extremely competitive, and unfortunately being a math-wiz is not the only qualification.

Sure, engineering involves a lot of theory. But we don't always get to see it in practice.

Its unfair to assume that engineers rely solely primarily on traditional technical skills.

As Beloit College's annual freshman “Mindset List” reminds us, a few things can change in two decades. Much more has changed in the world since the 1950s and 1960s. Many of our students did not grow up tinkering around the farm, for instance, or tearing apart old cars. Indeed, they may never have had the opportunity.

A study conducted by a student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and published in 2004 polled mechanical engineering alumni who graduated between 1992 and 1996. They reported seldom number of students using the underlying math, thermodynamics, and other knowledge they once learned in core mechanical engineering classes - but regretted having learned little about teamwork or other pervasive on-the-job practices.

Engineers who have not used a wrench 

Johns Hopkins University recently revamped its first-year mechanical engineering program to include labs where students who have never used a wrench learn “righty tighty, lefty loosey” while discovering how an internal combustion engine works. 

Engineers excel at solving problems, but developing soft skills to enhance careers isn't always a top priority. Getting an interview means you have the technical techniques.

After the interview, is all about your soft skills: marketing yourself, asking the right questions, making good connections, and choosing the paths that lead toward career goals. Without those skills, you are just another number in a large pool of engineers.

Don’t be just another engineer. 

Have you reached the engineering learning plateau? Where exactly does one (as an engineer) get to learn more "hands-on", practical skills?  

What about all other students that attend to a university that does not offer a lot of practical training in engineering?
