Daniel Angulo Jimenez

Grand Canyon University

Bio: I am a senior from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix Arizona. I am currently obtaining my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. I am originally from Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. I came to the US to pursue a better education and be able to achieve my goal of becoming an engineer. As a kid, I always dreamed of this profession since engineering gives me the opportunity to solve problems and design things that really matter, things that make the world a better place in which to live. As an engineer, I can use my God-given talents to find solutions that no one else has thought of; it’s an opportunity to make my mark on the world. As an engineering student, I learned about the stressors that are entailed with the career, and it sparked my interest to research and write this paper. The engineering profession is considered one of the most challenging jobs as the advancement of technology is so rapid and there is a continuous process of learning, unlearning and relearning which is not only a stimulating task but also needs patience and hard work. Overall, this research paper is centered on the idea that engineers put their neurological health on the line in order to meet productivity and corporation standards.

Topic: The topic of this paper will explore the standpoint of the engineering field regarding the neurological implications of being in a workspace under pressure inducing, stress related, and critical thinking situations
