You are right, at least most of them are. There are few movies that really show engineers as we are.

It's true, I was just thinking that a lot of people say that we are conceited but when you see Tony Start it's impossible not to think that we are conceited.

For me it's something very funny, for example with the series The big bang theory, do you remember Wollowitz and the song that he was the only engineer in the group? Well, many people tell me that scientists are better than engineers and that is because of something they see in the series, but at the same time people who are not scientists or engineers tell me, it seems very stupid of them but it is something that TV taught them about engineers.

I love my job and the people I work with, but there’s one thing that really bothers me: the lack of diversity.
