A group of Canadian engineers created a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) on Tuesday evening that brought together a number of engineers from the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom to discuss various electrical engineering topics.
In addition to discussing topics like power, transmission lines, and the electrical engineering curriculum, the AMA’s moderated by Redditor kluehrer4 was an opportunity to share the work they did, their experiences, and what they thought of Canada’s electrical engineering education system.
The AMA was moderated under the umbrella of the Engineering Engineering and Technology (EET) section of Reddit, which is a community for engineers, researchers, and students to share their work.
The subreddit was started in January 2018 by redditors with the intent of making engineers more visible on the web.
Since then, the subreddit has grown to more than 13,000 subscribers.
Among those participating in the AMA were the director of engineering at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada; the director at the University of Toronto, David Macdonald; and a researcher at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland.
Redditors can find more information about the subreddit by visiting their respective subreddits, as well as on the Engineering and Technical Education section of the site.
In 2018, Reddit made it easier for engineers to share and share with others.
The Engineering and Tech section of reddit, launched by Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, enables engineers to post their work and share it publicly.
A few months later, Reddit introduced the Ask Me Anywhere (AMA), a section on the site where engineers can post questions and answers to questions about any topic.
In an effort to attract engineers to the site, Reddit launched the Ask me anything subreddit on May 14, 2018.
A week later, the entire AMA was live and the AMA was hosted by a Reddit engineer.
While the AMA is a Reddit initiative, Reddit has also begun a push to recruit more engineers to its community.
In July, the company announced that it would invest $50 million in its community of engineers and create 50,000 jobs.
With Reddit becoming a major source of engineering talent, the idea of engineering schools and universities opening up to the public has taken off, but Reddit has been slow to take action.
According to a survey by the Association for Computing Machinery, just 14 percent of engineers surveyed thought they should be allowed to take part in engineering schools.
The majority of respondents said they were interested in engineering education but didn’t think it was worth the cost.
