I'm an Electrical Engineer AMA

Recommended Posts

In the spirit of the Reddit AMAs, I present my own to the community. I'm hoping this is successful and will encourage more folks to do this, and maybe just maybe encourage some of the younger commentors to pursued a career in Engineering.

Couple of notes before we get started. First, while you can ask me anything, I reserve the right to answer, "No Comment". Second, I'm thinking of letting questions collect until sometime tomorrow, and will decide on Sunday if I feel it was succesful. If it is, I will keep it open for a while, if not, I will stop taking questions. Thirdly, while I don't care what you ask (like I said I reserve the right to not answer), the mods might, keep that in mind.

Finally, a little more background information about me so we can hit the ground running. I'm living in Florida and grew up in the panhandle and I work for a large government contractor.

I haven't gotten an opportunity to work with NASA, though the company I work for has on many occasions. As for the military....well, I don't have a clearance, so for any project that is classified, I'm not allowed to know the customer. For example, right now I'm working on a part of a future satellite. I don't know what this satellite will do, I don't know who wants it, it could be any of a dozen government agencies, of whom about half are military,l. I only know what I'm working on and how it interacts with the components next to it.

A little more background. I'm an FPGA engineer, before I started at my current company I was more involved in commercial aerospace. For example, I helped with a chip on Embraer's, upcoming Legacy 450 and 500. Anything else? My education? More specifics about what I do? What its like living within a hour drive of KSC? What it was like working for Disney(I went to college in Orlando, everyone worked at Disney eventually)?
