Let's have a safe space free from autistic pure maths dickwavers and string theory memers. Actual solid real life applicable technology here.
Talk about your own projects or emerging technology such as fusion.
honestly though im an actual gay engineer im just memeing you for fun m8 dont take it too hard .
if you want to open a thread to discuss some general topic it is generally a good idea to start it with some question\idea .
Any semiconductor/VLSI fags here? One of my profs just came back from a conference and was looking for someundergrads to help him with new projects. I'm more interested in device physics but don't have enough knowledge to work in that area yet. Would working with VLSI in the mean time be worth it or just a
Waste of my time?
>autistic pure maths dickwavers
Yeah. Lets make an engineering thread and let the first thing we mention be pure math majors.
/math/ Mathematics General
Lets have a safe space free from autistic homosexual retarded engineers...
You see how autistic that sounds?
For fucks sake you engineers are seriously, seriously, autistic.
Mech dicks and mechanical sucking
2nd edition (2015)
It is a great book for sophomore - junior mechanical engineering majors but it is very thick and most people say having problems taking it all the way in so most people just gag and drop it by the 5th chapter.
Hey. Any Ag. Engineers here? I might make it into the number 2 Ag Engineering school in the US. Seems pretty comfy and interesting. Should I minor in Mech engineering or whatever Botanical program they have?
>mfw reading this post
I've never seen this much autism over a simple insult, you pure math kiddies need to have adults supervising you.
Does anyone have experience finding engineering jobs overseas in Europe, coming from the US?
I have no idea how accreditation and shit works outside of the US. Is my education/job experience 100% worthless outside of the US?
>Shiggy's Mechanical Engineering Design
I seriously hope you guys don't read this
true but /diy/ never likes to get technical. I made a thread on /sci/ about drone hoverboards, perhaps I should have put it here. Can anyone calculate the feasibility of 10 minute human flight with current battery tech?
If you want to work in Britain (why wouldn't you?) then check if your course is accredited with the institute of mechanical engineers. If it is you are good to go, if it isnt dont worry things are pretty lax here and they will accredit you based on work experience alone. Hell you dont even need the accreditation because here anyone can call themself an engineer there is no regulation. Just dont go to the continent especially Germany, I heard they are hardcore on engineering regulation there.
Britain. Some of what he says is correct, however for a top job in a large corp you do need a degree and institution membership. Civil engineering is extremely strict on this in the UK.
Europe. Your degree is essential, without one you are a technician. Be VERY aware that EU standards are often completely different to US, that makes life difficult. ie.
Materials may not be viable due to toxicity, supply chains compromised due to child or slave labour or corruption, environmental concerns with manufacture, supply, packaging, end life recycling.
Lot to consider that gets waved through in the US.
components are cheap and will depend on the project. general things I use in most projects are:
>transistors (MOSFET or gtfo)
>microcrontrollers (I prefer PIC)
when you start your project have a look at what you'll need/draw some rough specs and go shopping. the great thing about EE is that most projects can be done very affordably.

I'm beginning to suspect I'm one of those retards who can only do classroom shit and has no practical ability.
is there a PE type equivalent thing for Europe?
I'm a EE in the power industry so I imagine that experience is pretty universal across the world.
I don't understand how all the foreign kids can come over and get an american education and go back with zero problems while I can't find any helpful information on starting here and moving overseas
Assembly of a stellarator (Probably the WX-7) which is a kind of fusion reactor design meant to overcome the problems of tokamak reactors by using a different, twisty shape.
This field configuration is potentially much more stable, but requires a very peculiar and difficult field shape, which in turn leads to extremely odd-shaped coils that are extremely difficult to design, manufacture, or assemble with the necessary precision.
