As an international student, I was lost and confused to all the new things that were expected of me. At that time, I did not find many resources to navigate college and it definitively took me a couple of semesters to get into a rhythm (I got a 2.4 GPA my first semester). I hope this episode helps all the students out there. Episodes like this are what get me the most excited because they are the ones I wish I had when I was in school. Justin shares a lot of great insights and has been helping a lot of students through his podcast and his company. Justin is the Founder of Declassified College, a media company helping students navigate their way through college. He is also the host of the iTunes Top 10 podcast Declassified College, where he unlocks cheat codes to thriving in college in bite-sized episodes. Justin has grown his podcast through his LinkedIn and TikTok content (@declassifiedcollege) where he gets a combined 7+M views each month.

We have had a lot of ups and downs over these past four years, and we wanted to celebrate by recording an episode together. We both are very organized people that like to have a lot of rules about how we operate which has made for some interesting conversations in the past. We do a lot of planning each week at our weekly “Porch Talk” meeting so we can properly get everything done each week. Despite all of this, there are still a lot of things we need to work on, but we strive to communicate and continually learn what works for us as a couple and family. In this episode, we also talk about Callie’s journey of becoming a mother after finishing undergrad, becoming a PhD student, and pivoting multiple times to now be a working mother that is devoted to her family. I really enjoyed recording this episode (despite all the retakes because we could not contain our laughter) and hope you got some value from our story. What you will learn in this episode How Callie and I plan our week Callie’s journey from mother to PhD student to work-from-home mom The importance of setting boundaries and finding meaning in what we do Why women can be devoted to family and work The importance of communication with your significant other Music by Jack Winders Intro: Midwest Folks Outro: Southern Skies Website: https://www.jackwinders.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JackWindersMusic Follow him on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/0msfukZWdVoUHIvpFvanTU?si=U5jKEdjfSTOetL12ispLcg Connect with me Sign up to my weekly email newsletter // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/Newsletter My website & blog // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com Instagram // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/Instagram Twitter // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/Twitter LinkedIn // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/LinkedIn Facebook // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/Facebook YouTube // https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/YouTube --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/engourfuture/message

I have been stressing over this exam for years leading to the actual exam (and a lot more the months and weeks before) but the reality is that no matter the outcome, I will still work as an engineer. I know of many people who have not pass their first try and they are still great engineers. Don’t stress about it. I am planning to release a few more podcast episodes about this topic in the future but this one is just a broad overview about my experience preparing and taking the PE exam. It was definitively not an easy exam but if you prepare the right way, you will set yourself up for success. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you have about the exam.

When I was approached by the professor to give a presentation about risk taking and failure, I knew it was a great opportunity to share some of the many failures I had as a student. Failure is something we are scared to talk about but it is a very important topic in a culture that is constantly hiding the mistakes and promoting unrealistic expectations. As someone who is a minority and struggled to adapt to a new culture, I understand where this students are coming from and it was a pleasure to share this story. I know there is still of work that needs to be done to increase the representation of Hispanics in STEM and the stories of struggles and success are very important to show others that it is possible.

At RoadBotics, they are developing new technology using AI to analyze roads and determine any required repairs. The interesting part about their work is that all you need is a smartphone to conduct the inspection. Then the engineer, in this case Lonnie, can take that information and determine the areas that need repairs and be more informed on their decisions. This was a really fun episode with a lot of great things to learn in terms of new technology and what students should know about entering the profession in a profession that does not stop evolving.

In this episode, I sit with Avery Bang and Devin Connell from Bridges to Prosperity to learn how they are connecting millions of people by building pedestrian bridges in some of the most remote areas of Africa and South America. Avery and Devin are doing some amazing work with these communities with Bridges to Prosperity, and they shared interesting stories on how they are building all of these bridges. Some fascinating facts from our conversation include the use of manual labor to build the bridges (as opposed to using big equipment like we normally use in the US), the procurement of material and how they recycle steel cables for their bridges, and the impact a single bridge has on these communities. In this episode you will learn What Bridges to Prosperity is as well as their core mission. Some of the challenges communities and engineers overcome when building in developing countries. How bridges are built without big equipment. How pedestrian bridges are connecting communities in Rwanda. How corporate partners are the backbone of the mission of Bridges to Prosperity. How Bridges to Prosperity adjusted to continue helping these communities through the Covid-19 pandemic and all the challenges they faced. Why it is important for young engineers to get involved with professional organizations. What has been the largest suspension bridge Bridges to Prosperity has built. How Avery and Devin think we can continue Engineering our Future.

Full show notes at: https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/027 It is always a pleasure to be invited to speak at conferences and big events but speaking to smaller groups of students is a lot of times more fulfilling. Last week, I was invited to speak to the Metro State University ASCE student chapter in Denver. I have been a practitioner advisor for them for a little while now as they navigate becoming an active chapter again. In this talk, the students wanted to know what are some skills and practices they need to know once they graduate. I shared with them how I struggled to find my first structural engineering job, lessons from all of the non-structural engineering jobs, and some of the lessons I have learned early on in my career.

As a Latino in STEM, I struggle to see the facts and lean on these thought of not being enough. With Diversity and Inclusion being so important nowadays, it is hard for me not to think I got an awards, accepted into a committee, selected to talk at a conference, etc... because of my background.

This week’s conversation with Matthew has been one of my favorites. He is very knowledgeable about how to create those productivity systems (he even has a course on it) as well as how we should approach setting our goals. In this episode, we discuss the value of creating a system that works for you as well as some of the biggest mistakes he has seen young professionals make in their careers. I personally sometimes struggle to have a good day at work in terms of getting into the “flow” state. We have so many distraction around us, especially if you are working from home. Matthew has some great insight on how to minimize distractions, finding your biological prime time, and doing the right things at the right time. Some questions discussed in the episode (Video Timestamps): 00:00 Intro 02:09 Intro Matthew 02:50 What is productivity 06:55 Can you tell us about your new course "The Time Block King System" 12:08 What is the biological prime time and how it can increase our productivity? 15:06 How do we set better goals as young engineers? 21:38 How can we be more proactive about pursing our goals? 29:10 How does activities outside of work make us better engineers at work? 36:55 What mistakes do you see young engineers make on their productivity systems early in their careers? 44:19 How can we continue Engineering our Future? 44:54 Connect with Mathew Music by Jack Winders Intro: Midwest Folks Outro: Southern Skies Website: https://www.jackwinders.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JackWindersMusic Follow him on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/0msfukZWdVoUHIvpFvanTU?si=U5jKEdjfSTOetL12ispLcg --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/engourfuture/message

In this episode of the Engineering our Future podcast, I talk to Stephanie Slocum about engineering, entrepreneurship, and much more. As engineers, we do much more than crunch numbers for 8 hours a day. This podcast episode will give you a different perspective from someone who spent 15 years practicing structural engineering, wrote a book, and started her own business to help women in STEM have fulfilling careers. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/engourfuture/message

I have been reading more and more to learn better ways I can develop new routines. One book that really helped me is Atomic Habits by James Clear. I have found that there are three principles that can really help develop and maintain those routines. In this episode I talk about small habits, habit stacking, and the two day rule by Matt D'Avella. I am by no means an expert, but I have spend many hours learning and practicing ways to be more effective at developing these routines. I hope you enjoy this episode and let me know what routines are you trying to maintain this year.
