5 tips to become a Performer for Aspiring Engineers

November 30, 2016

Each one of us wants to be successful in life, whatever may be our stream, and we want to get the best. We put all our efforts to implement on things we have learned during the training period so that we can prove to be a better performer for aspiring students. Experience matters a lot, so why not take advice from those who have achieved a lot in this field through their constant efforts. Read on to know in detail about some useful tips which can really help in the long run.


Find your Role model
Whatever may be the field, if one wants to be successful then he should follow his role model, which could really prove helpful in career development. One gets inspiration from these characters and also follows that path which inspires him to continue on the right path which could lead to success.

Continue learning at every age

Don’t stop learning, during any phase of your life. Just getting an engineering degree alone is not at all done. You need to enhance your skills by acquiring additional degrees or joining new diploma courses.

University education was the beginning. You now have the study tools and confidence to continue learning as a professional.” – James Latty, PhD, PE, Chief Engineer, JAL Engineering

Learning to Manage People
Engineers need to good team leaders as they need to shoulder responsibilities like this. They should be prepared to handle people in different situations.
“The underlying technology and science for engineering solutions is evolving so quickly that very few people can keep current, but there will always be people coming forward with new skills, understanding and enthusiasm. The secret is to recognize your duty as a successful young engineer and develop your skills as a manager in an engineering business so you can create the conditions for the next generation of engineers.”– Systems engineer with 30+ years of experience in the defense industry

Keep Up on Other Engineering Disciplines
Innovation in engineering can often come from unexpected quarters. While the trend toward specialization is not likely to let up, the need for cross-pollination of engineering disciplines is critical. Innovations in oil and gas engineering can directly impact aerospace engineering, for instance, and new materials used in one industry can benefit others. Young engineers need to keep up-to-date on as many industries as they can.

“Not only keep up with trends in your own discipline, but also in adjacent disciplines. Engineering disciplines cross pollinate each other more than ever before and being on top of that gives you a strong edge in your career growth.” – Venu Venugopal, VP of Product Management and Engineering, Knovel
