How to become an Engineer–What was it like? Did it comprise you seeing yourself with a colored helmet, holding a work tool and get sleeves to work or you were dishing out instructions on a site?
An Engineer is seen as a practitioner of engineering, a professionals who invent, design, analyze, build, and test machines, systems, structures and materials to fulfill objectives and requirements while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulation, safety, and cost.
Engineers are intelligent, witty and very thoughtful individuals. They are goal and solution oriented, they are always interested in how they can tackle situations and issues head on and proffer a solution or a different thought pattern to things.
In a preceding text and article, we clearly outlined what it was going to be needed, if one was to become a scientist and since they are closely and very nearly related, we will be incorporating one into the other.
To become a scientist in Nigeria, the following are the needed starter packs;
- Take introductory technology, Basic Science and Mathematics extremely seriously in Junior class at high school or secondary school.
- Upon getting promotion into the senior secondary class after making JSSCE, join the science class and become excellent at Chemistry, Physics, Further Mathematics and Mathematics. You’ll need to be well-specialized in mathematics. Scientists in the physical sciences use a great deal of mathematics, particularly algebra, calculus and analytical geometry, while those in the biological sciences use math less often. All scientists need a working knowledge of statistics, too.
- Consider going to science camp during secondary school. You’ll do more intensive projects than you do in your regular science classes in school.
- Develop an analytical mind, learn to see issues from angles other than the supposed presented angles.
- Pick a science course to major in once in the university and give it your utmost best for the purpose of achieving the set target.
- Graduate the university in flying colors.
- Keep your knowledge up-to-date.During your decade and more of kíeducation (and your career), it’s wise to keep up-to-date in your field and related others by attending conferences and reading peer-reviewed journals. Engineering. is constantly changing – in the blink of an eye you could be left behind.
