Our Vision for this new forum is three fold.

  1. We hope that this forum will provide a source for FIRST Team corportate to demonstrate to our youth the kind of opportunities that the world has to offer in the field of engineering. Thus encouraging them to complete their education beyond High School and gather the experience and education required to be a part of this wonderful profession.

  2. We hope that this Forum will stimulate dialog between engineers and students from the vast corners of the United States. EXAMPLE: Asking what is a SW Engineer, what do they do, what schools offer programs in this area, what are the opportunities in this career?

  3. We hope Companies will advertise Summer Internship Programs for FIRST youth, giving them the opportunity to learn and experience what engineering is all about.
    A valuable resource to both the companies and the youth.

Well Lets get the ball rolling.

Hey Raul, (Motorola) What do you really do at work?

Anyone else want to put in a plug for their specific Career, you are welcome to post here.

There is a slim chance that anyone will know this, but I figured that I might as well ask. What exactly does an Astronautical Engineer do, and why is it (as a major) only accredited at the United States Air Force Academy?
