Science Professions ?

Post by possum » Wed May 17, 2006 5:36 pm

Grayson mentioned that he is an engineer, and I'm doing some training with some engineers and other science types .

I'm not an engineer, but are there any others or engineers in training ?

Physics people ?

Chemists ?

Biology people ?

Mathematics isn't my favorite, but I guess they are brethern to physicists too, even though they accuse us of corrupting and mis-using math with our "loose" interpretation of thier dicipline.

Others in science professions ?
Hey guys!!! Watch this.... OUCH!

Does metallurgy count s a science profession?


I used to be a Metallurgist - but now I'm a human.

Uhhh...I'm a chemist :lol:

I am currently working in a liquor-allied industry, with a background in biochemisty and anesthesiology research.

Liquor's more fun. Pays more than academia, too.

Materials science/ metalurgy.

Sure, unless you are the village blacksmith hornedrodent , then that would be an art.

The Chemist is a chemist. Huh...who would've guessed that?
I'm a writer, personally. Although I keep trying to figure out a way to make my hobby into something that pays (a legal way), I'll probably stick to writing for a while. Although, a distillery recently opened up around here...I keep meaning to get in touch and ask if they give tours...

How about social scientists? :D

I'm getting my degree in Development Studies (in the Sociology Dept) now. May be doing community/youth development work or may be making booze for a living after I graduate. :wink:

Cheers,
J

right now, I 'study' kind of a scientific studies (gymnasium). In October, I'll probably start with egineer studies. (do the different types of engineer have a name?)

well:
- social engineers (dont know what HTEY are doing)
- software engineers
- architectual engineers??
i think the list goes on, but im not exactly the most educated person on the forum either :P (only 18 ffs!)

--mechanical engineers
--civic engineers
--chemical engineers

I'm sure Grayson can come up with more!!

stoker, I'm kinda fuzzy on your use of "gymnasium"--is that a specific level of study in your part of the globe? Here, it's the room where you play basketball!!! And I know you're not studying in there!!!!

Don't forget the Electrical Engineers.


Big J, I suppose social science is science.....explaining and understanding or changing human behavior, in some ways it is more complex than rocketry. I am slightly prejudiced tward the "hard science"...I almost forgot to include biology. Social science is a branch of biology on the larger scale like ecology, in my OPINION.

In french is it "ingenieur civil" and I think in english is it the same : "civil engineer".
I think in our country it indicates the most polyvalent engineer in applied sciences (most difficult studies too!!!)

Good luck and much courage, Stoker... :wink:

For myself, I tried pharmacology studies, but without success, and I studied then psychology 5 years at university, we call that level of studies a "licence". I'm no scientist but I'm very interested about sciences.
I'm french speaking!

but I'm not sure yet it will be that one.
the other options are
-engineer in biology, or whatever it's in english
-and medicine

Very cool stoker, education is never wasted, and can never be reposesed, unlike a car or house.

I'm studying for multiple possible careers.

Physics teacher, Physicist, and I am taking a special course for industrial labratory in nano-technology.

The nano-technology course is an engineering style group of courses in the ultra-small(10^-9meters) construction that crosses many diciplines including chemistry,physics, biology, and medicine.

Specialized engineering fields are numerous and include aerospace, agricultural, architectural, automotive, biomedical, ceramic, chemical, civil, computer science, electrical, engineering physics, environmental health and sanitary, geological, marine, mechanical, metallurgical and materials, mining , nuclear, ocean, petroleum, systems, textile, and transportation.

I think civil is the origin of many of these and this is due to the infrastructure achievements of the early advanced civilizations.

I'm a communications electrician in the navy. I Have ohm's law tattoo'd on my shoulder. Just about any electrical question I can answer!

About to cross rate to an electronics technician, so more knowledge to follow.

behind every good engineer is a team of d--n good technicians. im a soon to be engineering technician. surveying being my main focus. taking all that stuff on paper then applying it to the field and making it work. sometimes things just dont work on paper. thats when i have to earn my money.

I agree with Ricky 100%!!! You have to depend on others eyes out in the field to recognize when something "ain't quite right". I depend on so many people and I really value their input and dedication.

Yes...more physicists and engineers.
I'm still a student right now, but I should have my Physics BS after I take Quantum mech next fall.

I have a two year communications electronics degree.
I have a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering.
I have a minor in Math, Computer science and chemistry.

I am a certified solderer for Mil Spec equipment, Have had training in Welding, Machining, Milling and Graphics Arts.
I have a never ending thirst to learn how to do everything.

Oh and Goose Eye, I am driving that constantly derailing, train of thought.

Look! A bird. Well that train left the track :lol:
