Q: I am a junior in high school and all my life I have enjoyed building things, solving problems and drawing plans for various devices. After doing a little bit of construction with an engineer on a mission trip with church, I am pretty sure I want to go into engineering. My only problem is that when I understand math I love it, but there are times when I don’t understand it and then I can’t stand it. I am in Trig Analysis / Pre-calculus this year and I like solving the problems, but I still have mixed feelings. Do you or any students that you work with have the same problem and do you think it would be a big hindrance to me if I want to succeed in Civil Engineering?

Q: I am a third year student in a Bachelor of Technology program in India. I want to devote my career to the betterment of my country, India. What is the most useful path for a student like me to take in order to advance this cause?

We do not know what field of technology you are studying, but suggest that you focus your studies (and your future career) on subjects and objectives that will improve the welfare of the public in India, and will contribute to raising the standards of living there. Specifically, we suggest that you consider a focus on improving the infrastructure in India.

India is a large developing democracy, facing significant challenges. These include growing population; high levels of poverty and illiteracy; multiple threats to the social fabric; urban congestion; eco-systems under pressure; and under-developed power and energy systems.

Not all of these challenges can be addressed and solved by engineers and technologists, but some can. One of the ways that an enthusiastic young person like you can help, is by focusing your studies, and then your energy as a professional, on betterment of the infrastructure in India - be that the civil engineering infrastructure (e.g., roads, bridges, dams); the power and energy systems (e.g., electrification projects); eco systems (e.g., environmental cleanup, clean energy and manufacturing); or the information, communication and networking infrastructure.

In each one of these areas, there is much that needs to be done. Take, for example, rural electrification. A recent article on the subject [1] indicate that "even 56 years after independence, 63% of all rural households in India do not have electricity and use kerosene for lighting. Even for those rural areas, which are electrified, there is a tremendous shortage of power supply. Thus it is not uncommon for these areas to have 10-15 hours of blackouts and brownouts every day. There is a shortfall of about 15-20,000 MW of electricity in the country and we require about 140,000 MW of additional capacity by 2010 with an estimated outlay of Rs. 5,50,000 crores. Because of tremendous shortage of electricity, industrial growth and general life in the country is seriously affected. Moreover with any problems in the national grid, rural areas are affected the most, since the State Electricity Boards (SEB) provide urban areas with electricity on priority basis."

There are many ways you can make a difference for the betterment of India. As a future technologist/engineer we suggest that a focus on infrastructure improvement can be one of the most effective and useful. (How about reducing the percentage of rural households without electricity from close to 60% now to less than 10% in 15 years?)

Q: BACKGROUND: We live in Sierra Vista, AZ, about 70 miles SE of Tucson. My 17 year old son is a high school senior and wants to become an engineer, but is still undecided which engineering sub-category he wants to specialize in. He is interested in robotics and maybe nanotechnology. He has taken Advanced Placement classes in English, Mathematics and Physics. He already has earned some college credit by signing up for Dual-Credit classes. We are split over 2 options: 1) having him attend for the first 2 years a community college which has a 2-year Pre-Engineering Program, and then have him attend a traditional university for the last 2 years of college; or 2) having him start as a freshman in a traditional 4-year institution.

QUESTIONS:

What, if any, are the pros and cons of both options? Is there an industry bias out there when it comes to hiring an applicant who either completed a 4 year program right away or first did a 2 year program and then finished up a 4 year program?
