I was recently looking for a new job and blown away by how many different things there are for engineers to work on. Everyone knows about cars, bridges, airplanes, buildings, etc. But there are so many industries/products out there that I never would have thought of. Here are some of the more interesting ones that I found during my job search and had never really thought of: - belting systems for vacuums and other consumer products - designing/manufacturing custom box making machines - Thule (racks for cars among other products) - Optics for lasers - door hardware (it's pretty complicated stuff when you start getting into commercial doors) - bearings (there are tons of different styles, types, etc.) - seals (like bearings, if you've never thought about it you'd be surprised by how many different things need to be sealed and how many different ways people have thought to do it) - pumps - valves - hot tubs - elevators - tupperware (I was at a training class where I met someone doing FEA work for them) What are some of the more unique ones you guys have seen?
