You have a stick in one hand and a golf ball in the other. What would you do? As a Chemical Engineer, you’d discover the process of how to turn the stick into the golf ball. Mills are responsible for transforming raw materials into a variety of end products and you are responsible for choosing and understanding the science of how this happens. You develop processes, select equipment and offer management for the production of forestry materials.
You are analytical, apt in math and science, and would never cut the blue wire after the yellow wire when it is crossed with the red wire. As an Electrical Engineer, you work with systems that generate and operate electromagnetic energy or electrically coded information. In forestry, you design the electrical operation of mills for maximum production. To ensure a safe environment, you are electrically innovative and detail oriented.
You have the contradictory ability to be practical and conceptual, concrete and visual. Your mechanical inclination combined with your child-like imagination enables you to visualize three-dimensional objects from your two-dimensional drawings. As a Mechanical Engineer, you design and evaluate forestry machines and oversee their development and operation. Without you, manual bush whacking would be in style.
