Twitter Chat – The Words We Use About Engineering…

bb_twitterchatEngineering is commonly associated with building bridges, designing new products, or even driving trains – but there are many hidden aspects to engineering that are lesser-known, even to those of us currently studying or practicing engineering. Despite day-to-day appearances, engineering is not just about equations, calculations, hardware and efficiency. It’s about people – about stories, about dreams and yes, about emotions.

When you first decided to study, teach or practice engineering, you probably got some questions

from your friends and family: Engineering! What’s that? How did you answer? The words you used reflected your understanding at the time – and chances are good that when you began to explain engineering back then, the language you used was far-removed from dreams and emotions.

This week’s #BigBeacon twitter chat focuses on this very personal aspect of the study and practice of engineering – namely: how do you explain what you do as an engineering student or professional? More specifically, what words do you use? How do you represent engineering to the outside world? The words that we use are very important. They are a signal to the outside world about who engineers are, what we prize, how we think, as well as what we do. Join us as we explore the words we use around engineering, and what might happen if we chose different ones…

Join us for the weekly #BigBeacon Twitter chat at 8:00 pm EST on April 9, 2014 to answer these questions & more.
