Yesterday, today and tomorrow
Engineer is such a broad grouping.
I used to be a Locomotive Engineer, now I'm a Network Engineer in the IT field. Both Engineers but so very different.

Yeah, I'm sure there would be numerous, better ways of slicing things (by industry would be interesting too, rather than position) but....

Docjohn, I plan on posting a link to this thread on Ferrarichat for those chucklehead F348 owners to ponder. just kidding. :tongue:

Same here. I'm a 'Sr. Systems Engineer' and security consultant. I wouldn't say that's "engineering" but thats the closest thing on this poll.

I would love to see this same poll on ferrarichat. The little 348 kids aren't rich, but some of the other guys are beyond rich.

Well... I'm a claims manager for a vehicle rental company and I review all of our customer claims and wrecks. I was put into this place with three other guys by the CEO with a mission to recover the millions that the co has previously let get away. The project has been a success so I'm happy I'm in that good spotlight but I'm starting to outgrow what I do and I wanna move up. Rightfully so since they told me to look forward to moving up because I've been their best employee and got a great review. The problem is, I'm wanting to get paid much higher and I don't see that happening here too soon... and they haven't really rewarded my efforts with anything other than free Starbucks for the last 6 months. :D

I'm looking into getting back to school to get a degree in business (because I've been in management for 7 years now), as well as a degree in geology. I would love to work outside for a change.

You older or more experienced gents should help a young fellow like myself with some pointers and advice. :) :) :)

As observed by others, technology (i.e., not engineer) is missing as a category so I'm unable to respond.
