I
Aloha friends, today we are at the engineering expo here at the University of Auckland
I am Susanna, and I’m gonna be hanging out here and letting you know more about the wonderful world of engineering
Can you just explain to us, so what exactly it is that you do?
Basically I’m a structural engineer so we design bridges, buildings, and all sorts of infrastructure product
structures really
So I’m an Operations Engineer my main current role is maintaining our assets once at least a treatment plan
So it’s pretty much transporting the water from the treatment plants to the local areas and to the local network and once it reaches there it comes to your houses
What made you want to study engineering? I didn’t know what engineering was until my sister wanted to study engineering
I I realised the things I was interested in was actually engineering
What are some fun facts about engineering that some of our viewers may not know about or that you want to share with us?
We’re not all nerds. We kind of are, but we’re not really.
So civil engineering is we work with anything that we do not want to move.
It’s the way I describe it so if you want a building
You don’t want it to move so therefore you hire a civil engineer.
We’ve got a bit of a challenge for you
We’re gonna put 30 seconds on the clock
And we’re gonna get you to try name as many engineering specialties as you can.
The most important one a Civil Engineering
Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering
Geotechnical we’ve got Transportation. We’ve got Water
Software engineering and Marine engineering, Aviation engineering
We’ve got Mechatronics. We’ve got
Time’s up
Can you just tell us?
What are some of the?
the skills or characteristics you’re looking for in future engineer?
Has some experience out in the field and actually has a really good understanding of
Kind of being timely, being organised
Happy to kind of get there. To get stuck in.
The big one that is people skills, you have to be proactive and independent
I wanna say problem-solving skills and just going out there and experiencing things the best engineers are practical engineers
throughout my engineering studies
I just realised how big engineering is and the amount of options you have especially as a graduate right now in civil
There’s so many opportunities for me, and it’s um
It’s quite exciting, the opportunities are just endless
Engineering isn’t as complicated as we all think it is it’s actually all about problem solving and it’s really giving it a hard go
