Overview of Educational, Functional and Technical Needs:

The only thing that is consistent about this field is its inconsistency. Each job hunter used different terminology and approach for finding his/her employee. The only consistency is the college degrees and other schooling. From a positive standpoint, it shows how diverse the field is and that college-entries have a big choice of direction to go.

Interview with Electronics Engineer

Q. Why did you join Ford company after getting your degree?

A. When I was finishing up my senior year at the University of Wisconsin, I decided I wanted to join a company that had some type of entry-level program rather than going in as at entry-level position. I looked at the different companies and liked what I saw with Ford.

Q. What plusses are part of this program?

The best part has been enjoying placements in different parts of the company and the country. As a stereotype, I thought that working in industry would be kind of dirty, but...


Everything now is high tech. I also get to do a great deal of traveling, bring in a really good salary and have lots of benefits like my car. Everyone is willing to help me, because they know I am new. As a young woman, I have not faced any discrimination, either.
Q. What types of positions have you had?

A. When I first came in, I was immediately given a great deal of responsibility. I was only weeks out of college, and I was already supervising my own small project on a Ford design team, working on changes for a radio tuner. It was a fast and furious learning curve, but I loved it. I quickly was working in the lab and getting right into the heart of the radio -- taking measurements, doing calculations, and optimizing processes. I relied on several different computer-aided electronics packages.

It was necessary to compare and contrast radio performance in a number of different automobiles. We drove a BMW and Mercedes in addition to Fords in Germany. I successfully kicked off the tuner manufacture, and then we went to Portugal where it is made. I look forward to going to the U.S. Or South America in the future to meet engineers in other plants where Ford will be standardizing the product.

Q. Where did you go for your next assignment?

A. My next placement, the one I'm in now, is in production manufacturing, which is mathematical but also action oriented. We've gathered a lot of statistical data, working out production measurables to see how manufacturing is proceeding. I quickly have to make a decision if something happens or the plant could go on shut down. it's nerve wracking, but great for an adrenalin rush. That's probably why I like engineering so much! I really enjoy problem solving.

A still have to do a rotation in marketing, finance or material buying logistics for a few months to add to my overview of the company. Then I want to go on into audio design where there are going to be a lot of advances..

When you begin a career, you may not be sure what skills you are lacking, so working part-time, taking an internship, or even volunteering could help prepare the student for what the job entails, and make them more comfortable as they begin their career. As the career develops, the engineer may begin to see skills that are lacking, such as English writing, or team building, or many other aspects of

We will begin by defining aerospace engineering and the plethora of purposes that it serves with earthbound vehicles and household supplies. We will then discuss the various tasks that an aerospace engineer team performs. This

This underlines the notion that engineering does not exist in a vacuum, but rather is only useful insofar as it is utilized. The importance of computers in aerospace has only grown as the decades have passed, so full technology literacy both in utilization and in describing needs are important skills for the aerospace engineer (Bishop 1994). One of the most important ethical considerations for aerospace engineers set forth in the
