So I recently learned about the Boston Molasses Disaster. Apparently, due to a lack of oversight, some giant molasses storage unit exploded into a wave that flooded the streets of Boston with millions of gallons of molasses causing massive damage to people and property. How crazy is that?? What are other historic engineering accidents worth looking into?

Have you ever been in front of a big project which is not going to happen because of the lack of commitment of your bosses? i.e. I have a planned and schematized project for the treatment of wastewater in a needy sector of my city. My company needs a social aid project, everything is a match, but my boss does not know how to sell the idea to their superiors and therefore I feel that the project will not be done. Has it ever happened to you? What did you do to face this situation?
My two years is coming up at my current company and I was curious what salary other system/automation/controls engineers are making in Northeast ohio. This is my first engineering job so I will have 2 years of experience at the time of my review. I’ve heard my raise will get me just shy of $80,000 but I have a feeling other companies pay better

I'm currently working in civil engineering! Talking to your manager about wanting more challenging work to enhance your skill set is a great idea. From my experience, management loves it when you vocalise that you want to grow your skill set.
I agree with this, managers LOVE it when people want to take initiative! Just as long as they are still taking care of their daily work too, LOL, not just wanting to switch over to a different job description. It is definitely in the company's best interest to have people working to the fullest extent of their skill level so it's really likely you will be met with enthusiasm.
As someone supervising engineers, yes, please discuss with your manager. You should always be looking to improve and build your skills. Never be afraid to ask for new jobs or challenges. Even better, if there are some jobs that you are interested in tackling suggest those to your manager. In my opinion, it shows you are a high achiever, especially if you come and say, "I am not feeling challenged in my job anymore. I would love some more responsibility such as doing X like this job over here."
If your manager is mad about that or the company doesn't have the projects to continue developing you and building your skills, it is probably time to look elsewhere. Your happiness won't last long there.
Yes, this is completely on point. It's awesome when people take the time and initiative to identify ways they can help the workflow and this often means suggesting new processes that will end up saving time in the long run, like maintaining files and so on. Chances are management hasn't had the time to brainstorm tasks so it's a good thing they have someone with a creative mentality helping them out.
Try to talk to your manager and if you don't get good feedback, I recommend looking for another job where they want a motivated engineer willing to learn. Luck.
I'll make sure they don't keep me stuck here, thank you!
Of course, you must tell him something, it is evident that you want to learn other things, do not let that continue to happen to you because you feel stuck, and remember that a motivating job is a healthy thing in life.
Got it, I just wasn't entirely sure if it was appropriate to bring it up but clearly I should :)
Yes, I think that if you are not comfortable with your job it is better to talk to your boss and explain that you need a variation in your activities. Maybe explain that you feel more comfortable with challenges than with the daily routine.
Of course, you should tell him something, years of experience doing the same thing is useless, and as thinking beings and the engineer that you are, you want to learn more every day, it is part of our being.
Exactly! I'm just so unstimulated by my work now. I need a breath of fresh air and some new things to work on to keep me motivated
You should say something for sure, but I'd suggest that you avoid saying you are bored or unchallenged... instead, try suggesting some new task you would like to take on. Otherwise it's putting extra pressure on the manager to find something that will keep you feeling engaged and honestly that's a lot of work on top of what they are already responsible for.
I disagree, I think they need to know you don't feel challenged. Shows initiative and especially if they think the tasking is already difficult... Well then you already told them that it was easy for you in an underhanded way
Feel this right in the feels
