Message to engineering students

Engineering: We Offer Solutions

We let students achieve their highest potential and we do this by providing them a strong foundation in mathematics and science.  There are engineering graduates working successfully

  • as novelists, educators, entertainers and movie producers;
  • as architects and bankers;
  • as toy, fashion and interior designers.

These are, of course, in addition to the conventional engineering work such as

  • building cars, trains, ships and planes;
  • building roads, bridges and tunnels;
  • building computers, cell phones and Internet;
  • building surgical robots and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) machines;
  • building internet platforms for trading, for making friends and for games.

Some big projects engineers built include

  • petroleum exploration and refinery;
  • Three Gorges mega-dam;
  • steel refineries and
  • rockets and spaceship for moon-landing.

The list is endless and the opportunities unlimited.
