A representative from the University of Toledo recently explained to ILHS upperclassmen science students the exciting world of engineering. 
Kevin Brooks told the group, "You don't have to be a guru...You just have to understand math and science."
He describes engineering as the following:
- Conceiving, designing and building solutions to problems
- Protecting the public
- Using the latest technology and
- Being valued for knowing math, science, physics and chemistry

Brooks said the university currently has about four-thousand students in several different types of engineering fields and that's not nearly enough to fill the demand. He also described the basics of civil, mechanical, environmental, biochemical, chemical, civil and computer science engineering. Brooks estimates the average starting salary of most engineers to be approximately $60,000 a year.
