"I are engineer!"

“I are engineer!”
 Career Myth vs. Reality

The myth that engineers can’t speak in complete sentences or get a date but love numbers is both funny and wrong. The facts are a lot more interesting and inspiring.”

Take one example Amar Bose, founder of the company that bears his name.

When Dr. Bose died this summer he was a billionaire who loved what he did. Dr. Bose was a college professor who loved music and science. He followed a dream, which became the company we all know today and helps me drown out all those loud people and noises on the plane. 

Among other interesting quotes he said:
I would have been fired a hundred times at a company run by MBAs. But I never went into business to make money. I went into business so that I could do interesting things that hadn't been done before."

Another engineer took a slightly different path and orbit.  

Engineer Neil Armstrong decided not to build things but rather to join the military and went on to be the first man to walk on the moon.

Famous quote from Neil:
“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

Finally, Mr. Bean who let’s just say managed to “engineer” some ridiculous acts and funny movie scenes. On more than one occasion he relied on awkward moments he observed around rooms full of well, awkward engineers. 

Famous quote from Mr. Bean:
Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream. If you see a crocodile, don't forget to scream.”  - Not exactly profound but you get the point.

This is Ian. He's one of thousands of mechanical engineers who is literally shaping our future. Hear what revealing insight he has to offer at uwannadu. And learn about thousands of other great careers.

What does this all mean?

That depends on what uwannadu.
