Identifying Potential Engineers

There is no one “type” of person who becomes an engineer. If you know kids who . . .

  • are creative
  • like collaborating with others
  • are curious and persistent
  • want to make a difference
  • like solving problems or improving processes

. . .  then you know some potential engineers. Are you surprised that you didn’t see “excels at math and science” on this list?  It’s important that engineers have a solid background in math and science, but ultimately, the best engineers are people who use their communication skills, imagination, and analytical abilities to invent, design, and build things that matter.
