PHIL Engineering provides the DNA that makes every Philippi-Hagenbuch product unique. Based on 46 years of product research and development, coupled with PHIL standards, an engineer is able to thrive at PHIL from an exploratory standpoint, while learning and developing their skills by working with a talented Professional Engineer (PE).
Below are four of the ways an engineer can grow professionally at PHIL:
An individual is able to achieve a lot in a career. Working under a Professional Engineer, especially one with passion and experience, helps an engineer in training (EIT) to see what can be accomplished in a career. A young engineer should set lofty goals – short, medium, and long term – and then strive toward them.
Discipline and thoroughness of an individual’s work can be practiced at any point in one’s career, but engineering experience can only come with time. Working under a PE helps provide a knowledge base to answer questions. A seasoned PE has a careers worth of experience and having the ability to ask questions to one is very beneficial. By understanding and absorbing the answers, an engineer in training has the opportunity to rapidly advance his/her expertise.
People and Business Skills
College is great for teaching engineers the math, physics, and science needed to receive a degree, but it often fails to prepare engineers for the social and business skills necessary for the job. Attending business meetings with a PE aids an EIT in addressing questions that may arise from clients and prospective clients. It is an engineer’s responsibility to know every single component of their design and be able to justify even the smallest parts.
The code of ethics for the National Society of Professional Engineers states that “Engineers shall hold paramount the safety, health, and welfare of the public” and “Perform services only in areas of their competence.” By being mentored under a Professional Engineer, an EIT is reassured that they are learning the safest practices and are receiving accurate knowledge.
