Engineering Central

Welcome to Engineering Central - a source for getting students excited about engineering careers. Herbert Hoover said this about the engineering profession: "There is the satisfaction of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realisation in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings homes to men or women. Then it elevates the standard of living and adds to the comforts of life. This is the engineer's high privilege." Use these resources to motivate students to become the engineers of the future.
