Engineers Week: Instructional Videos

By MarkBurhop

Did you know it is National Engineer’s week? There is even a foundation set up to promote it.

If you are not an engineer, I’ve collected together some of the better youtube videos to help you understand who we are and what we do. Even the engineer might find these videos helpful, especially if you have cats or are still mourning the end of Star Trek.

Along with our ability to do advertisings as demonstrated above, engineers also make the best instructional videos. Even if you don’t have a cat, you will be fully trained after watching this video.

Surprisingly, there are very few songs about engineers but I did find this one.

Now this last one isn’t funny, it’s a tribute to the “Best Engineer Ever”, Scotty from Star Trek. Its likely half of you are engineers because of him.
