How to be a good engineer? View All
I am a sophomore in college. I was just wondering what it takes to be a good engineer. I don't have the best GPA but its not terrible. Also I tend to forget Physics and math quickly even though I am slightly above average in them. I really want to be an engineer, especially a good one.

There are many aspects to being a good engineer. There is following the ethics guide which in the US in set by the Government and in Canada is set by self-governing organizations of engineers. Also being able to follow the design setups but still being creative to come up with new ideas and understanding what the limitation and benefits of them are. Analysis of data ( I don't use much physic or math in my position as it not required) and developing interpretations on what it means.

These are general guidelines for engineers but to really get a better grasp on them if you had a particular field of interest I am sure someone could give you more detail on that engineering discipline.

All it takes is not physics and math but be able to handle men and machines, be able to look into machines. Be more practical dude, expertise will come with time, be patient.
