A few months ago, I met Prof. Jay Wilhelm from WVU at a joint biology/engineering workshop in Washington, D.C. He asked if I would give a talk to engineering students and some faculty about SparkFun (what it provides to students and teachers) as well as some life lessons learned in the course of my engineering career. I readily agreed and put together a talk.
On Thursday (2/26/15), I will be giving the speech, which I lovingly titled (based on a speech by Alton Brown at his Live show):
10 things I’m pretty sure I learned about engineering while working in industry
In the speech, I discuss a few things that I have learned over the past few years. Specifically, they are things I wish I had learned during my undergraduate studies.
I purposely gloss over many of the useful sites and references during the talk. If you would like to find them, I have listed them here:
- Computer-Aided Design
- Teaching Yourself
- Right Brain Stuff
- Know Thyself
- Business and Marketing
- Public Speaking
- Sharing is Caring
