    Is Practical Exposure Necessary To Be A Good Engineer?

    The field of engineering has always been considered to be a practically oriented one. One cannot be said to be a good engineer until and unless the person enrolled in different online engineering degree programs and courses has proper and adequate exposure to the ways and techniques that are employed in successfully enrolling in the different programs and degree courses through the help of which they can be termed as qualified and proper engineers when they move in the practical field. A major question that needs to be asked here is the fact that why is practical and hands-on experience necessary when it comes to enrolling and developing a career in the field of engineering.
    A major reason which is important to highlight here is the fact that through the use and application of proper and practical engineering techniques and methods it becomes easier for the person to register and recall the different methods and dynamics through the help of which they can apply these concepts and techniques once they move and start exercising their skill in the practical field. If they take place right in front of them or if they do it themselves, there are far greater chances and greater probability that they can easily register things in their memory and can recall them at the time when they need to apply a particular technique and strategy in solving a problem that they face.
    This is only possible if during their different training sessions and internships that they may have done in the past has a repository of memories through which they can extract the relevant memories about the ways in which things were done and can apply them in the situation that they have at their disposal. However, with the advent of online education, universities and the different degree programs that they offer and provide to students in different degrees, if there is one field that needs to be seriously considered here is the field of engineering and the ways through which the dynamics of this field and its fundamentals through which the field has undergone immense modifications.
    In the field of engineering it is extremely important that the practical aspects and fundamentals that are being offered by different degree programs and courses are provided to students in a manner through which they can easily cover all such aspects and dynamics important in the field of engineering can be covered during the different phases of learning. Online learning and studies in the field of engineering has been incorporated with different and state of the art technology through which students enrolling in these programs and courses have been provided with the opportunity that can help them make use of simulation techniques and connect with the ways through which it can be applied and employed in a proper manner for a student to cover all necessary dimensions required for successful enrollment and passing the online engineering degree. Hence, it can be said that one hand where online engineering degree courses and programs may have reduced the level and exposure of practicality in the field, it has simultaneously opened new frontiers of learning and exposure for students in an effective manner.
