April 3rd, 2019 is Discover E’s Global Day of the Engineer. Why is this important? Whether you realize it or not, engineers make a HUGE impact on your everyday life. From the building you work in (Architectural Engineering), the vehicle you drive (Mechanical Engineering), electronics you use (Electrical Engineering), to the computer software you run (Computer Science Engineering), and everything in between, you have an engineer somewhere to thank. There are too many types of engineering careers to name. With everything they provide for us on a daily basis, they deserve to be celebrated.
