21st February – Building the World

This week is Engineers Week, dedicated to the field of engineering and inspiring people to become involved in the field. We’re joining in the celebrations by dedicating this week to everything engineering in fictional worlds.

  • Who is your favourite fictional engineer?
  • While most engineers like to use their skills for good, some of them don’t; which “mad scientist” engineer caught your attention?
  • In fandoms, engineering expands into new (and usually weird) fields; what one would you like to learn?
  • More importantly; who’s teaching the class?
  • Famous engineers are often depicted in fandoms, which has been your favourite portrayal?
  • Which fictional engineers would you like to see team up for a mega engineering project?

Well, this will be quick: Up until probably my mid-twenties I honestly thought an engineer was someone who drove a train. Okay, laugh all you want. You would love to know that I was super confused when my best friend told me her husband drove trains in Boston; he was hired to be an engineer.
My son wanted to be a mechanical engineer. He would have been great.
