    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Branches of Engineering. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      You might have had biomedical engineering, but I missed it.  Biomedical engineers design pacemakers, internal defibrillators, cochlear implant devices, etc. I believe most biomedical engineers start off as electrical/electronic engineers, but I'm not certain of that.  My former husband did his undergraduate work in electrical engineering and then did his graduate work at the University of Wisconsin in Madison and worked for Medtronic, Guidant, etc.  I was very proud of the work he did and was happy that I had convinced him to examine whether or not he wanted to work for Honeywell designing electronic systems for bombs or use his engineering skills in a more positive way.  There is also engineering in the bio-fuel industry.  (I only glanced briefly at your hub, so I'm not sure whether or not you covered that).  Oh, and software engineering, actually.  My present husband is a software engineer and creates code for various types of Fortune 500 companies. He always worked as a consultant through Cap Gemini America and thus was sent on various assignments on a contract basis.  Each type of engineering, of course,  requires different temperament and different levels of creativity.  I think your hub is extremely important.  Kids as young as middle school age hear the word "engineer" and want to be one, but they don't realize what possibilities are out there, which match their unique talents, and which would be a suitable match for their future.  I have advised parents of children as young as 12 to go on various "career" interviews and shadow some people in the fields they are thinking about entering, if only for a day or two.   Oh, did you have nuclear engineering?  My very first boyfriend, 50 years ago, went into that field.  (I seem to gravitate toward those engineering types [LOL] even though I am totally opposite in temperament and career choice. Best wishes,  Billie

        Thanks Billie for the Explanation. I will see how to include them.

          Mike, I went back to your hubs.  May I offer a little suggestion (?) - nothing earthshaking - but I think that the images you use to identify your hub might detract a little from the writing itself.  If you grab a few more images from professional sources or from actual pictures you take, your articles might look more professional.  Just scroll down this page for example.  See how professional those images look?  They don't have text in them.  There are articles here on hubpages that tell where to get free or inexpensive images.  I tend to like to get an image that I KNOW is safe to use for copyright and I purchase them from istockphoto.com, but people use a variety of other sources here. An attractive visual will bring in more readers!  For example, if you just used the left half of the image that you used on "Branches of Engineering" (widened of course to the right size) WITHOUT the text, I think it would be more attractive. So, too, with your other images. Just a thought smile

            Thanks for the observation, I will make adjustment to that.
