I said it somewhere before about a thousand pages ago. Having the word engineer in your job description covers everything from rocket scientist to garbage disposal engineer. This is the most worthless thread ever!.....Or since the last one I created at least.

Elementary school teacher and part-time acupuncturist. I am mechanically disinclined but my brother-in-law is an aerospace engineer (designs engines for Boeing) and his 15 year old son will help me wire my temperature controller so I won't burn my house down.

And all this from the same country that thought the depiction during the Olympics opening ceremony of Isambard Kingdom Brunel was a character from a Dickens novel. Get a grip guys. Most of you are NOT engineers.

I'm a land surveyor.
Not a damn engineer but I work with them and occasionally re calc their plan data and make things work.

I prefer boundary work to dealing with topo and construction.

Architect turned mechanical engineer for a nuclear firm. The architecture industry took a huge hit in the economic downturn...so I adapted. It turned out to be a great career move.

Very true.
If you are an actual engineer you will have an engineering license that you took an engineering test to get.
Your licence will be governed by your states board of registration and under a separate branch with a board of registration that has engineers and surveyors on it ( usually about a two to one ratio favoring engineers ).
You will have special laws and administrative code that govern your actions and ethical behavior.

I'm one. Not just in degree, but I actually design electronic devices, mostly medical. Schematic design, PCB layout, firmware, soldering, debugging. I have a 1-man consulting company. I know there are others here.

I just finished the board layout for a really cool O2 sensor tonight. It will measure the O2 concentration using light. I bounce red light off a tablet that contains a powder that fluoresces. There is a very small time lag (nanoseconds) between when the red light hits the tablet and when it floresces. I blast the tablet with a high-frequency sine wave then use FFT (fast fourier transform) to measure the lag in response. This lag is proportional to the amount of O2 where the tablet is.

The cool thing is that it can be used in liquid, so works with beer! Once I get it working I'll watch the O2 deplete in my carboy during fermentation. Can't wait.
