INTRODUCTION
ENGINEERING IS A WORD THAT IS GENERALLY
USED ON A DAILY BASIS, BUT THE GREAT
QUESTION REMAINS:
WHAT IS ENGINEERING AND
WHO IS AN ENGINEER

What is Engineering all About?

Definitions:

It is the application of science in the design, planning,

construction, and maintenance of buildings, machines, and


other manufactured things. From the Microsoft
Encarta 2009. 1993-2008 Microsoft Corporation.
It is the application of science to solve every day
problems.

Given the enormity of these problems and the need


to give workable solutions, engineering is subdivided into so many branches.

Why Polytechnique Yaound?


Polytechnic Yaound is an engineering professional institution,

which helps train Conception Engineers in Cameroon.


Furthermore, it is here to satisfy the needs of Cameroonians,
train engineers in six specialties.
Also, in the first two years of studies, you would be trained in
engineering math's, physics and computer sciences, after
which you are then fit for one of the six specialties,
mentioned below

ASPY

engineering is a field of
engineering that generally deals with the
study and application of electricity,
electronics and electromagnetism. The
field
first
became
an

occupation in the late nineteenth century
after commercialization of the electric
telegraph and electrical power supply. It
now covers a range of subtopics including
power, electronics, control systems, signal

Definition

More to that

Mechanical Engineering also known as


the mother of Engineering.

As the name implies deals mainly with


machines and mechanics

The branch of Engineering concerned


primarily with the industrial
application of mechanics and with the
production of tools, machinery, and
their products

Machines are involved in literally all


aspect of human life right from very
basic domestic machines to
complicated automated machines in
big industries

HOW TO GET READY

Metacognition: thinking about thinking


Theres the slow, tedious way, or the faster, more effective way.
The slow way is about sheer repetition. You obviously know that you
are able to learn and remember even the dullest of topics, if you keep
pounding on the same thing. With enough repetition, your brain says,
This doesnt feel important to him, but he keeps looking at the same
thing over and over and over, so I suppose it must be.
The faster way is to do anything that increases brain activity,
especially different types of brain activity (studies, teaching,

intellectual discussions, eating proteins etc.)
