    Current junior at the University of San Antonio for a BA in Civil Engineering. I would say I am not an introvert but my Marine Corps background of being cautious would make it seem that way.

    Electronics Engineer (Va Tech '88). Good to see several other Hokies on Beesource. I fit Dilbert's definition of an engineer -

    "Extreme intuition about all things mechanical and electrical and utter social ineptitude"

    The below video will tell you how to know if your kids will be engineers because we all know Dilbert is not a comic strip, it's a documentary.

    I'm sure the whole 30 minute episode is on Youtube somewhere - titled "The Knack". It is hilarious and shows what happens when engineers "drink from the cup of management" and lose "The Knack".

    Civil are ok, industrial is a different story. Be careful though, I once cracked a joke about industrial engineering not being real engineering in front of our new plant manager, sure enough... Murphy's Law.

    When I was working for the Army Corps of Engineers, the CO said you could tell an extroverted engineer because he was staring at the OTHER guy's shoes... they were civil engineers...

    Then there is the Dilbert where the doctor says "I see from your paperwork that you are an engineer. We classify that as a disease now..."

    In school the electrical and civil engineers had a good natured rivalry. It was decided over beers that possibly they were engineers, after all. As they pointed out, when a civil engineer makes a mistake, bridges and buildings collapse. When an electrical engineer makes a mistake, he\she has a bunch of blown out chips on a circuit board.

    IE stands for Imaginary Engineer. They're really just accountants for real engineers.

    Mechanical / aerospace engineering for me. Maybe I was destined for this?

    Just pay attention to Low Reynolds Numbers if you want to understand how bees can fly.

    Son of an engineer who's name is on the moon (microfilm) with Apollo 11.

    Former Physics lab supervisor. So what if I disappointed everyone and became a Biologist?
