Who Wants to be an Engineer? : February 2017 Digital Reflector

February Editorial

This month’s editorial is from the Reflector Editor, Karen Panetta :“Who Wants to be an Engineer?” She reflects with humor on being chosen recently to suffer the unfortunate ignominy of teaching a circuit theory course. [Ironically, I think that Karen was chosen because this topic needs someone that will transform the lives of students rather than a mere requirement on a transcript. Karen is a leader among leaders and a mentor to many young engineers. I know that she will succeed, as her students will too. -ed.]
