Why Engineers Make the Perfect Thanksgiving Guest

Tuesday, November 15, 2022

As Thanksgiving nears, there is gratitude in the air at AMETEK Solidstate Controls. This has gotten us thinking about the big Turkey Day and how to best prepare for it. Mealtime is a valuable opportunity to enjoy spending time with loved ones – not to be worried about making sure everything runs smoothly. That is why it is so important to invite an engineer to Thanksgiving. They make the perfect guest, and here is why:

  1. Engineers have fantastic project management skills. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the moving parts that come along with cooking a Thanksgiving meal. It’s stressful to think about when to put things in the oven, in what order, when to invite guests over and so on. Engineers can strategically plan these things! You can thank their long-standing experience with product development projects for this.


  2. Engineers are great with electrical appliances. You can’t risk serving a raw turkey! Time is too precious for potential electrical difficulties. If something goes wrong with the power, engineers can spring into action and get it working right away. You can thank their experience with uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems for this.


  3. Engineers take preventative measures. Before the big day, engineers can come to assess the status of your kitchen and dining room. They are great at spotting things you can’t see. If you ask, they could even test your kitchen appliances to make sure they are in proper working order! You can thank their experience with preventative maintenance and testing for this.


  4. Engineers can offer virtual support. If the engineer in your life can’t make it to the meal, it’s no problem! You can use AMETEK Virtual Support for "hands-on" support through remote technology. Utilizing a mobile device, you can "virtually" place your engineer in the kitchen to help you troubleshoot all your Turkey Day problems.

There are so many reasons to be thankful for engineers, especially on Thanksgiving Day. During this season of appreciation, don’t forget to express gratitude to the engineers in your life. We are thankful for our engineers at AMETEK Solidstate Controls today, and every day!
