I want to become an engineer!


Pupils who choose engineering specialties need to study in depth the exact sciences such as mathematics, physics. But we must not forget about the Russian language, since a person with a higher education must be able to write correctly, and an exam in this subject is also required in technical universities.

Unfortunately, graduates of higher educational institutions are engineers only on paper, but in practice it takes several more years to make real masters of their craft.

The following engineering specialties are very popular:

  • design engineer
  • labor protection engineer,
  • Electrical Engineer,
  • civil engineer
  • design engineer,
  • mechanical engineer
  • cadastral engineer.

How to become a cadastral engineer

A cadastral engineer is a profession quite unique, involving a synthesis of the humanitarian and technical mentality, a specialist in this field must have knowledge from the field of complex computing, specialized computer programs and, of course, a good knowledge of Russian law. The decision to master this profession must be balanced and deliberate.

Most importantly, without which it is impossible to get this profession in Russia - you must be a citizen of the Russian Federation, applications for participation in the qualification exam from citizens of other states are not accepted.

You must have a higher or secondary special education (the specialty is determined by the regulator in the field of cadastral relations).

You must not be convicted or your convictions must be withdrawn or canceled.

All these are the basic requirements for the candidate.

Next, the actual preparation for the exam and the exam itself.

To do this, you need to contact the qualification commission with a statement and the necessary documents. The exam itself is a test task consisting of eighty questions.

It is very important to remember. Within thirty days after receiving the certificate, a written notice is sent to Rosreestr about what form of cadastral activity you have chosen.

If for any reason the notification is not provided, the certificate is canceled, it will be possible to receive it again in a year, not earlier.
Good luck in job!

What does a person need to become an engineer?

1. In order to start your career in the career of an “engineer”, you will need to study mathematics, physics and computer science in depth from high school. Necessarily need knowledge in chemistry and physics. Physics and mathematics are the basis of engineering courses, their understanding is the key to obtaining a diploma. Some types of engineering will require knowledge of computer programming; it is better to learn them sooner rather than later.

2. Participate in math contests and science fairs. Try yourself in engineering contests if the reformers have not yet ruined such institutions in your city and have not leased the space for the market.

3. Develop hobbies related to engineering. It can be astronomy, rocket science, geology, auto mechanics, bicycle repair, welding, or even robotics. Any opportunity to gain excellence is good practice.

4. Learn to use different types of tools. Hammers and screwdrivers are a great place to start. If you have the opportunity to take wood carving, soldering metals or plastics, do it. Car repair is also a good choice. Be sure to also learn about the different types of measuring tools. Try to do everything neatly and beautifully. Every detail, every posting should look beautiful and be in its place - this will develop your accuracy skills!

5. Take things apart. Ask your friends and family to give you broken appliances and equipment that have broken, or buy them inexpensively “by hand”. Learn to properly disassemble, look for the cause of the breakdown. If you can assemble the appliance back so that it works, great! If not, see what you can get a worker out of him before throwing it away. Learn about the processes that happen inside the technology.

6. Solder, radio, repair computers. Gather a stereo speaker for fun. To create speakers, you need both woodworking and electricians. Study the characteristics of the speakers, select the necessary frequency range, body volume and bass reflex. Although electronics is more closely related to electrical engineering, mechanical engineers need, at least in collaboration with electrical engineers. More and more systems are electromechanical, so it’s good to know a little of both. Some mechanical engineers specialize in electrical engineering and become electrical engineers.

7. Take drawing lessons. Try to study the Compass CAD program or several similar programs. This will be a big plus for you, especially if you learn to draw with your hands!

8. Develop written communication skills. Documentation and technical writing skills are required in many engineering jobs. A well-written letter has much more weight.

9. Make something yourself. It does not have to be the next generation of light bulbs or even a new idea for robotics. It can be something simple or funny: a hanger made of curved wire mesh or a sticky mass to clean the keyboard. You can come up with some kind of process or optimize the way you organize your table or perform everyday tasks. Maybe look, can you make a car with a mousetrap or a gravitational engine?

10. Build something. Build a box of cabinet furniture, make a potato stacker. Create your own lava lamp or crossbow. Even funny or silly projects will help you get used to thinking about how everything works.

11. Take an interest in production. Where do the staples come from? How about computer chips? Do you know what jelly is? Part of the job of a mechanical engineer is to design things so that they can be put into production efficiently and inexpensively.

12. Develop your creativity. Despite the fact that mechanical engineering is a systematic and analytical science, it is also a creative solution to problems. Try to draw, write, juggle, play music, listen, play, learn and study. It will make you a better engineer and a whole person.

Do not give up! There is a lot of hard work involved in obtaining an engineering degree. At some point, you will probably give up classes and ask yourself the question: “Do I need it?” - just keep on making efforts, all good things take time and pressure.

You will succeed and you yourself won’t notice how to launch a spaceship into space, but maybe you will land on Mars and become the first person. Remember that diligence and labor will grind everything!
