Looking at the Engineer Memes fan page it looks like we have all sorts of Engineers from all around the world! It's pretty cool how we all can relate to the same pictures and videos.
It's shocking to see how many types of fields there are in engineering. You can have a mechanical engineer, a civil engineer, an electrical engineer and environmental engineer (just to name a few). I even just received a message the other day where someone asked me if I knew what a packaging engineer was. I told them I didn't and then she told me she was studying it in the Philippines! I was shocked at first and then ended up googling it and found a page that described what it was. I thought it was pretty cool. It's great to see diversity on our facebook page though. It looks like the two popular engineering fields are electrical/electronics and mechanical engineering.

I made this picture for my fanpage and I thought it was hilarious. It might not be true at your school, but it is definitely true at the school I went too, University of British Columbia. I think in my graduating class (electrical & computer engineering) we had like approximately 20 girls out of 200. I was jealous of chemical and biological engineering though! They had such a better ratio compared to the other departments. However, I wouldn't want to go into chemical and biological engineering because I have no interest in chemistry and biology. I also met a lot of great friends in my department so I am happy with my choice!
So what kind of Engineer are you? Does the photo above reflect your engineering school or all the girls in civil/mechnical engineering at your school? Feel free to comment and discuss!
Or you can just leave a comment of what kind of engineer you are, where you studied, and where you are from, also how many girls were in your class!
