This 3½-minute, fast-paced video highlights the diversity of engineering—and the people who call themselves engineers. Far from the common stereotype of engineers as people who sit behind desks, we see the reality of engineering work in the field, and we get a glimpse of the passion engineers have for their work.

This video will help students recognize that:

  • Engineers are explorers.
  • Engineers are inventors.
  • Engineers are discoverers.
  • Engineers are game-changers.
  • Engineers build the future.
