So many times when I see people giving advice on how to succeed, they are people who have never done anything. The only skill they have is to give motivational speeches. They are full of advice, but why should you listen to them, unless you want to become a motivational speaker. If you want advice on how to succeed in engineering, listen to a successful engineer. I was a very successful engineer, and worked at the executive level in both the National Laboratory in New Mexico, and at a Silicon Valley High Tech company I started. So, I am someone who can tell you how to succeed in engineering, because I did. I am going to tell you the things I learned, and the things I wish someone had told me. The best part is it is all free. Hope you enjoy these lessons, and hope you will comment and share with others.
