My name is Bob Jackson and I have been blogging through WordPres for approximately five (5)  years.   I generally write and post articles involving STEM (science,technology,engineering and math) subjects.   I am a graduate engineer and a registered professional engineer living in the state of Tennessee.  My wife and I have three sons and five grandchildren.    We have seen “a lot of kids” come and go through our home over the past 40 plus years.  The changes from generation to generation are striking.  We have gone from a society that “loves to read” to a society that loves to watch.  Rather disappointing actually.  Certainly different.

My main goal is to provide information that represents “value-added”. I certainly hope my readers come away with the feeling they have not wasted their time by taking a look.   It’s very important to me to get your views, opinions, rants, etc.  and you communicate your feelings relative to the subject matter I present.  Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated and I certainly thank you for taking a look at my blog.  Again, please let me hear from you and please remember– any suggestions you have on how to make my presentation better will be greatly appreciated. My e-mail address is bobjengr@comcast.net or you can reach me through the “comments” section of WordPress.  I certainly look forward to hearing from your.

Many thanks,

Bob J.

      Hello Pedestal. Thank you so much for your very kind comments. I work hard trying to provide posts that I feel a certain segment (the thinking segment) of the population will enjoy. I really appreciate you taking a look and please do come again. Take care. B.

    Hey R. Johnson! I can actually give you some insight on that one. I’m a female mechE who recently got into a UC program, but I can tell you that it’s NOT the coursework that gives you the hands-on experience.

    It’s everything else that you choose to do with your time! So at any large university (over 3000+), there will be frats you can join, engineering projects you can get your hands dirty in, and they’ll take anyone as long as they show an excitement to commit their time!

    This would provide your daughter with an actual reason to be PASSIONATE about mechE (as most engineers sign up without a reason), and of course, recruiters love to see it.

    I post about my current college experiences all the time, because the hands-on component is really what gets you revv’d up about engineering.

      Finally, I’d say- there’s no reason to go out of state and pay out-of-state fees. Just go to a big one, a well-known one in your state (isn’t U of T big there or something?) where you can find lots of opportunities– then, get INVOLVED.

      You’d be doing the same thing anywhere else (ie. Cali) but with triple the price tag.

        Hello Jen,

        I agree completely. I went to UT for five years. Worked a lot,met some really nice life-long friends and enven got out with a “sheepskin”.

        Take care and again many thanks for taking a look.

    Mr. Jackson

    My daughter is a high school senior and is looking at studying mechanical engineering after she graduates from high school in May 2011. She is very bright, but definitely more of a hands on student. Can you advise me of universities that have more of project based approach to engineering instruction. I know that especially with engineering there is no way to avoid the reality of classwork, but I have been told that there are some colleges that lean far more towards project based model. We live in Texas, but would seriously consider universities outside of the state.

    I really enjoy your blog. Thanks!!!

    R. Johnson
