Engineering is an exciting career path, allowing you to develop your creative thinking and problem solving ability, while making an impact on the world. Engineers often work in teams to tackle complex challenges that can't be solved alone. That's just scratching the surface. As an engineer, your skills are highly coveted, so you have options. What makes sense to you today, may not be clear tomorrow. What's the right fit for you now? When's the right time to consider a different role? We'll attempt to find answers to those and many other questions during our panel discussion with engineers in the field.
We'll discuss a variety of topics, from different perspectives, focusing on what you need to know in order to have a successful career in engineering.
During this session we will conversation about what it takes to land a successful engineering career with a diverse set of panelists. Terry Collier, has served in a number of roles with 3M and now works as an Application Level Engineer. Conor McGoldrick, is an associate sales engineer, at Molex. Axel Schmidt, is a Senior Technical Manager at Kemet. Before accepting a position at Molex, Conor interned in several different areas of the company, including a group that managed the assembly of medical devices, a group that manufactured high performance cable assembly used to connect data servers, and a product management team focused on I/O products for Datacom solutions. From Keysight, Patrick Geisler, a field engineer, will also join to let us know what that's like. Joining us are element14 community members, dubbie and DAB, to lend insights from their engineering career.

|As a technical marketing engineer, I am responsible for content generation, tradeshows organization and website development. The objective is to create the recipes that use KEMET products as the ingredients.||Joined Keysight as a remote technical support engineer in early 2018, after graduating with a MS in Electrical Engineering. He then moved to his current position in February 2019. Keysight – one of the largest manufacturers of measuring instruments - sells its core product portfolio through partners around the world, who in turn are supported by local Keysight sales engineers in all aspects of sales. In everyday business, he is on the road and supports partners in joint customer visits with device presentations, offers technical application support and technical training, works on both management sides on marketing and sales strategies and conducts road shows. Today almost every aspect of life is digitized and electrified. This is where Keysight comes into play.

|Dubbie did his first degree in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, a sandwich degree sponsored by GEC Telecommunications, followed by 6 months working for them. He found this to be dull so he did a PhD in Mobile Robots and then became a lecturer. He stayed on as a lecturer for the next 37 years, teaching various aspects of electronics, embedded systems, computer systems and robotics. He progressed through to Senior Lecturer, then Principal Lecturer and ended up as Deputy Head of Systems Engineering. For the last 15 years he mostly taught on Masters Programmes.||Mr. Bertke began as an electronics technician and worked his way up to becoming a Systems engineer upon graduating with a degree in Computer Engineering. Over the next twenty five years we worked on a wide range of advanced aerospace projects. At his last company, he began a student mentoring program that enabled the company to hire many students and transition them to engineers. When he retired, over forty of his students were full engineers with the organization and one was Chief Engineer of the local office. Since retiring, he has begun to mentor a small company doing crop analysis using drones and is now mentoring three students as they learn systems engineering and image/spectral processing techniques..|
