BEST GRADUATION GIFT – ENGINEERS

Gifts for ENGINEERS

I am an electrical engineer. I started my own consulting engineering practice on my 29th birthday and we grew from a one man shop to the largest electrical engineering firm in Rhode Island. Your engineer (of any discipline) can have his own private practice within six (6) years of graduation with his/her determination and your advice. Hear is how you can provide the best gift for engineers.

GIFT AN ENGINEERING PRACTICE

If your graduate is an engineer, “Gift” him or her their own private consulting engineering practice that will support them and their family for an interesting, exciting and lucrative career. It is truly the best graduation gift for engineers.

WHAT IS A CONSULTING ENGINEER?

“Consulting engineers are individuals who, because of training in one or more engineering specialties, are licensed professional engineers in private practice. They serve private and public clients in ways ranging from brief consultations to complete design and coordination of projects. They are often the technical liaison between architects, process specialists, contractors, suppliers and the client. A consulting engineer can provide general consultation, feasibility reports, design, cost estimates, rate studies, project development, patent assistance, and preparation of environmental impact statements.

TYPICAL PROJECT HAVE – 5 – PHASES

Drawing & Specifications Phase

Architects (and building owners i.e. hospitals) hire engineers to draw system plans and write specifications for their buildings, including electrical, mechanical (heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and plumbing), fire protection (sprinklers), structural, and civil. Sometimes, very narrow specialties are required, such as acoustical engineers.

The consulting engineer is responsible for designing within the architect’s budget limitations and coordinating with utility companies and inspection authorities.

Specifications Phase

At the end of the design phase, the consultant prepares a specification document detailing the material requirements for his specialty and system functions.

Bidding Phase

During bidding, he attends pre-bid meetings, clarifies issues, and prepares addenda for the architect to issue to inform bidders of changes in the requirements.

Shop Drawing Phase

After a contract is awarded, the consultant reviews/approves shop drawings, detailing all equipment that his trade contractor proposes.

Construction Phase

During the construction phase, he visits the job site to record progress and clarify the contract documents. At the completion of the construction phase, he prepares a punch list detailing corrections to the work, if needed.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Most Colleges of Engineering never mention the words “Consulting Engineering” or even the words “Systems for Buildings”. They are too busy talking about research or other fields where engineers will never be their own boss.

I have written three consulting engineering books to share my knowledge with the next generation of engineers:

My first book is: The “Complete Guide” to CONSULTING ENGINEERING. In essence, his readers discover “step-by-step” how to start & manage an “outstanding” Engineering Practice and exactly how to gain a reputation as an expert in their specialty. This is both a handbook for new engineers and a constant reference manual for seasoned professionals.

My second book is: The “Outline Guide” to CONSULTING ENGINEERING. It is a condensed and abridged summery of the detailed advice provided in the “Complete Guide”. It is intended for engineers looking for just the facts; without the stories and background. It is intended to be like the “Cliff’s Notes” version of the Complete Guide.

My third book is The CONSULTING ENGINEER’S “Guidebook” and is an excerpted and extended version of the “Complete Guide”. It is the result of requests from many readers to narrow the focus to the goals of:

  • Becoming an “outstanding” consulting engineer.
  • Gaining a reputation as an “expert” in their specialty; and
  • Obtaining the engineering “management skills” needed to advance their career and make the firm stand out from their competitors.

All my books are available at AMAZON.COM

Go to my website: TheEngineersResource.com, If you chose the “Engineers Gift Package” you can get all three books at a discount. Use coupon code “paperback” and save.

What are you waiting for?
