You can use a pie chart (or table) to illustrate the relative importance of the different skills listed.
Complete this exercise as soon as possible after the first class. Towards the end of the semester,
repeat the above exercise. What changed – was it your dream job, the skills that you thought were
required, the relative importance of the skills required to be successful, or some combination of all
three? Explain why you think these changes occurred or why there were no changes.

about the different topics discussed throughout the course and how they impact your outlook of
the engineering profession as well as on your career path and aspirations.

grammar, syntax, spelling, punctuation, and overall sentence structure, as well as to the
organization of your thoughts. You may use the first person.

posted directly to you via myCourses).
