Like any other decisions, taking the pros and cons into consideration should be a top priority. Becoming a mechanical engineer has many positive aspects. For example, they are well paid. “The annual median wage for mechanical engineers was $84,190 in May 2016” (bls.gov “Mechanical Engineers: Pay”) In addition to high pay, there are a plethora of job opportunities and chances to be promoted. “In addition, over the coming 10 years mechanical engineers will see above trend growth within their industry.
Throughout high school writing papers and essays were very difficult for me, almost every assignment I would seek help from others. Whether it was from my fellow students, family members, or teachers, their advice helped me tremendously. My senior year I took a Creative Writing course, which I believe helped me a lot, because I would struggle to write a paragraph, but now I can put a paper together. Coming into college I knew writing was a major skill to conquer, but I still feel like I can improve a lot yet. Furthermore, my critical reading skills need much improvement, I have no problem reading a passage or book; however, I do have trouble with comprehending what I read.
Many people died from either galling off ledges or being blown up, and it was sick and sad to watch your friend being blown up. The Chinese were willing to do this because it was basically the only thing that they could do. Discrimination against them was high, so they wanted to do something that they would not be made fun of doing. They were willing to work for low pay, since even as low as their salary would be, it would still be more than they got paid in China, because of overcrowding and the Civil War. I think that Chinese railroad workers were definitely exploited by the owners.
In an personal interview with Doug Lucht he talks about why mechanical engineering is a great job to go into. Doug works for an HVAC company (heating, air conditioning, humidity control and such). Growing up on a farm, Doug liked to take things apart to see how they worked and loved finding out. Knowing how things work is a huge part of engineering, so without even knowing it, he wanted to be an engineer. In high school his physics teacher told him that he should be an engineer and he thought he meant a train engineer, but ... ... middle of paper ... ... its base.
Early into my sophomore year of high school, my brother took me to the University of California, Riverside where he attends. For as long as i could remember, I have thought about becoming an engineer. On that day of the college visit, I can still picture the long, cold, dark night in Riverside. I remember walking through the hallways with excitement written all over my face. It was my first time being on a college campus.
Hoover underestimated the severity of the Great Depression. Although, he believed it would get better it progressively got worse. Approximately 13 million Americans lost their jobs, and thousands of businesses had failed, and the number of farm foreclosures increased. Provided that the plan worked, which entailed keeping money in people’s pockets and to keep people working, he contacted business leaders and urged them to not lay off workers and not to cut wages. The plan failed and as a result, Hoover watched as Americans drowned into poverty.
Paul and Clara was a lower-middle class couple. The child’s biological parents were reluctant to allow the Jobs to adopt him, but in the end, they allowed it. The Jobs moved to Mountain View a couple years after adopting the little boy that they had ended up naming Steven Paul Jobs. Steve Jobs grew up in a low-middle class neighborhood with engineers working on a bunch of electronics and multiple gizmos in their garages. At 13 years of age, Jobs met one of the most influential and important persons in his lifetime.
However the top chemical engineering school is The Massachussetts Institute of Technology (U.S Grad News Company, 2015). This job takes dedication, at first it won’t be easy, however the benefits are beyond belief. After graduating college finding a good chemical engineering job is hard, however most start out with an internship, which then will mold into a job, it may take time, but it will be worth it in the end, the benefits will be discussed later in more
Determination, taught through the coming of age process, is what propels China to be the world’s largest economy. For centuries, youths came of age through family centered ceremonies and customs in ancient China, now, the coming of age in modern China is rooted in becoming more western. Youths come of age in a series of ceremonies. Currently, Chinese youths are expected to marry young because of the intense focus on the family. In China, “Most Chinese expect to get married, because family is considered the most important thing in a person’s life” (“China” Culturegrams 5).
China has risen quickly to become a worldwide power in the last century, and I’m fascinated by how societies like this can advance and become so modern while keeping their traditions. In order to save up enough money to go I worked 60 hour weeks, and it was worth every penny to see my 4th grade student Nicki light up when she read a word correctly.
