Here are the top 10 reasons for Dating an Engineer: (There r more than 10 so enjoy !!

* The world does revolve around us... we choose the coordinate system. * Engineering "couples" have a better "moment". * We know how to handle stress and strain in a relationship. * We have significant figures. * Projectile motion: Do we need to say more? * Engineers do it to specification. * According to Newton, if two bodies interact, their forces are equal and opposite. * We know it's not the length of the vector that counts, but how you apply the force. *Motion of a rigid body is our specialization ;) * We know a lot about friction and viscosity.. * We know what those other buttons on the calculator do .. * High starting Salaryyy * Experts in increasing and decreasing friction * We are always willing to experiment * We know all about Heat Transfer * We do it with more torque *" Lubrication, friction and wear" is a class * We have control on the degrees of freedom of bodies * We know techniques that lead to the plasma state

* Inventors of the plug and play way of living * We know how to do and undo all kinds of buttons * We make systems reach boiling points , others reach melting points... * We work in doping technology * Large Earning Potential *We know all about the dynamics of relative motion * FREE body diagrams * We always back up our hard drives * We are trained to do it right the first time * We are specialized in experimentation * We Can go all night without hint of fatigue * We know where the freedom is finished, coz we know the DOF... * We R good , in controlling OUr emotions, feelings, actions, motions, with high accuracy, more than a PLC.. And the number one reasons to date an engineer: * WE KNOW THE RIGHT HAND RULE! Top Ten Things Engineering School didn't Teach You There are at least 10 types of capacitors. Theory tells you how a circuit works, not why it does not work. Not everything works according to the specs in the databook. Anything practical you learn will be obsolete before you use it, except the complex math, which you will never use.

Engineering is like having an 8 a.m. class and a late afternoon lab every day for the rest of your life. Overtime pay? What overtime pay? Managers, not engineers, rule the world. Always try to fix the hardware with software. If you like junk food, caffeine and all-nighters, go into software. Dilbert is not a comic strip, it's a documentary. REAL ENGINEERS.... Real Engineers consider themselves well dressed if their socks match. Real Engineers buy their spouses a set of matched screwdrivers for their birthday. Real engineers have a non-technical vocabulary of 800 words. Real Engineers repair their own cameras, telephones, televisions, watches, and automatic transmissions. Real Engineers say "It's 70 degrees Fahrenheit, 25 degrees Celsius, and 298 Kelvin" and all you say is "Isn't it a nice day?" Real Engineers wear badges so they don't forget who they are. Sometimes a note is attached saying "Don't offer me a ride today. I drove my own car". Real Engineers' politics run towards acquiring a parking space with their name on it and an office with a window. Real Engineers know the "ABC's of Infrared" from A to B. Real Engineers know how to take the cover off of their computer, and are not afraid to do it. Real Engineers' briefcases contain a Phillips screwdriver, a copy of "Quantum Physics", and a half of a peanut butter sandwich. Real Engineers don't find the above at all funny. How engineers do it... Engineers do it with precision. Electrical engineers are shocked when they do it. Electrical engineers do it on an impulse. Electrical engineers do it with large capacities. Electrical engineers do it with more frequency and less resistance. Electrical engineers do it with more power and at higher frequency.

Mechanical engineers do it with stress and strain. Mechanical engineers do it with less energy and greater efficiency. Chemical Engineers do it in fluidized beds. City planners do it with their eyes closed. Petroleum engineers do it with lubrication. Reservoir engineers do it thorougly and with lot of simulation. Drilling engineers do it with smooth penetration aided by lubrication, frequent short wiper tripps, and at the end slug is pumped before they pull out. You Might Be an Engineer if... your favorite James Bond character is "Q". you see a good design and still have to change it. you still own a slide rule and you know how to use it. your family haven't the foggiest idea what you do at work. in college you thought Spring Break was metal fatigue failure. you have modified your can-opener to be microprocessor driven. you are better with a Karnaugh map than you are with a street map. you think the real heroes of "Apollo 13" were the mission controllers. you take a cruise so you can go on a personal tour of the engine room. you think "cuddling" is simply an unproductive application of heat exchange you have owned a calculator with no equal key and know what RPN stands for. you make four sets of drawings (with seven revisions) before making a bird bath. you have trouble writing anything unless the paper has horizontal and vertical lines. your ideal evening consists of fast-forwarding through the latest sci-fi

movie looking for technical inaccuracies. you think the value of a book is directly proportionate to the amount of tables, charts and graphs it contains. How many first year engineering students does it take to change a light bulb? None. That's a second year subject. How many second year engineering students does it take to change a light bulb? One, but the rest of the class copies the report. How many third year engineering students does it take to change a light bulb? "Will this question be in the final examination?" How many civil engineers does it take to change a light bulb? Two. One to do it and one to steady the chandelier. How many electrical engineers does it take to change a light bulb? None. They simply redefine darkness as the industry standard. How many computer engineers does it take to change a light bulb? "Why bother? The socket will be obsolete in six months anyway." How many mechanical engineers does it take to change a light bulb? Five. One to decide which way the bulb ought to turn, one to calculate the force required, one to design a tool with which to turn the bulb, one to design a comfortable - but functional - hand grip, and one to use all this equipment. How many nuclear engineers does it take to change a light bulb? Seven. One to install the new bulb and six to figure out what to do with the old one for the next 10,000 years. Female Engineers... File their nails with a Leatherman. Make jewelry out of wire, resistors, transistors, and chips. Don't think of male engineers as dorks.

Refer to impotence as system failure. Would rather discuss the strength of a bridge than the strength of their relationship. Know why a Dickies purse is cool. Think tools are romantic gifts. Have thought about re-engineering a bra. Have tried to make a bra out of duct tape. Read Popular Mechanics instead of Cosmo for fashion tips. Are the only ones smart enough to enter into a field that is 95% male. Have used nail polish remover for more than just removing nail polish. Know the value of hairspray's flammable properties.
