First of all, I'm really sorry for all the victims and families of the victims.

Second: @Loki - who do you think are the "A"s of the engineering? Lets say you think the machine-building industry engineer - let's try to let them build a bridge... oooops....

Have a look at this -



It's the Millau Viaduct - hundrets of civil engineers did the planning and supervising there. All of them the "C"s... I don't think so....

P.S.: Of course I'm a civil engineer too, so I had to write this.

Haha i did for a while. My avatar was "iJew" with kyle from south park, And alot of the Jewish stereotypes are true; I'm extremely cheap and have a huge **** but it just comes with the territory

As for engineers in my mind here hows it goes

1/2 mechanical and electrical (goes back and forth)
3 Civil Engineers
4 Industrial
5 Manufacturing
6 Construction.

And there are exceptions to every rule

That's like asking what the difference is between a mechanical engineer and a physicist.

Alright...I'm outta here. I took this thread way off topic. Bridge collapse is tragic.

At my school, mech and mfg engineering have the same types of courses, but mfg has higher levels of them, higher job placement (99.5%) and higher starting salary. If it wasn't for those things, I'd be a ME major.

Really? thats amazing to me.

Manufacturing engineers at my school dont even take calcIII let alone diff eq, fluids, and heat transfer.

I think they have a tech degree not an engineering degree

Is your school ABET accredited?

Yeah it's accredited and was recently designated a polytechnic university. I don't have to take calc III, but the ME's don't even have to take calc II. I'm taking diff eq this year and I believe the fluid dynamics stuff comes later. I've mostly been doing a ton of materials (Chem of materials, engineering materials etc) classes so far.

What?!? I had to take up to Calc 3 along with all the other math classes, 2 diff eq's, 2 engineering maths, etc. ABET accredited also.

But I'd rather take a math class than one of the liberal arts classes. "Fortran" was my foreign language credit! I was lucky enough to get into "short story" my senor year, it almost offset the horror of "medieval women" junior year.

<--- Mechanical too.
