Engineers Week – Making a Difference

2015_Engineers Week_Horizontal

This week recognizes engineers, and in support we are encouraging our partners and teams to share their experience, knowledge and passion with others.

Engineers are changing the world all of the time. They dream up creative, practical solutions and work with other smart, inspiring people to invent, design, and create things that matter.

At Pro QC, our quality engineers are at the heart of our organization.  Mechanical, electrical, environmental and a host of other specialities are all necessary to sustain our successful global team of quality experts.

The Discover Engineering website describes engineers as people who…

  • Are creative and imaginative
  • Like collaborating with others
  • Are curious and persistent
  • Want to make a difference
  • Like solving problems or improving processes

They also reference 10 Reasons to Love Engineering, and we couldn’t agree more.

One question that we receive from those outside of the industry is the question of what it is quality engineers do.  A previous blog post addresses this:

What’s special about quality engineers?

Another question we often receive is regarding what our quality engineers do on-site during product inspections.  We also have a previous post that addresses this in more detail:

What are our quality engineers doing on-site during inspections?

With services in over 38 countries, we always looking for qualified and passionate individuals to partner with us on QC related projects throughout the world. Anyone interested should contact us for additional information.

Quality makes a difference… Engineers help make that happen!

Celebrating our engineers & supporting STEM

As National Engineers Week comes to a close, we proudly recognize all of the engineers on our team for their contribution to our organization.  In over 30 countries, our engineers work hard to reduce quality risks and cost for our clients.  It’s truly what we believe to be a key competitive advantage.

We also take the time to recognize the growing demand for engineers and those in all areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) fields.  It’s important that we support and grow the next generation of engineers.

Our favorite resources include:

Stem Education Coalition 

The Global Race for STEM Skills

STEM Workers: Data Sources

Celebrating our engineers…

Ralph J. Smith once noted that “engineering is the professional art of applying science to the optimum conversion of natural resources to the benefit of man.”

This week is National Engineers Week, and we wanted to take an opportunity to thank all of our engineers for their commitment and dedication to both Pro QC and the quality industry in general.  When asked what separates Pro QC from competitors, it’s often our skilled and knowledgable team (in addition to our personalized service) that receives mention.

Thank you! We <3 our engineers…
