For your first paper, choose an engineer you are interested in learning more about. You will then need to identify at least two scholarly sources about that engineer to cite in your paper. A scholarly source is a book or article written by an academic scholar, NOT a web site (note: if you choose an article, it must be at least 12 pages long). Web sites can supplement your research but cannot replace your scholarly sources.Your paper should document the major events in the life of your engineer. In particular, address as many of the following questions as are appropriate for your engineer (note: in most cases, you may only be able to answer some but not all of these):
• Was your engineer part of a professional society?
• Did your engineer have military training and/or work for the military during his or her career?
• Did your engineer work independently or as part of a team? Was he or she self-employed or an employee of a corporation?
• How did your engineer view the relationship between engineering and science? IE—did they identify as an engineer? As a scientist? Neither? Both?
