This week marks the start of 'Engineers Week 2020', a week long national celebration of engineering. Founded by the National Society for Professional Engineers in 1951, "EWeek (February 16–22, 2020) is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers." (

In honor of this national celebration, PBA asked a few of its engineers who are at different stages in their careers, a series of questions relating to what led them to become engineers.

Carmen DiCicco is an electrical engineer with Peter Basso Associates' Corporate / Governmental group. Carmen earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Wayne State University, Detroit, MI in 2017. Shortly thereafter, Carmen joined PBA as a full-time electrical engineer.

When asked what Carmen loved about engineering, here's what she had to say.

DiCicco: "I love the math and problem solving involved in engineering."

PBA: "What do you find most challenging about engineering?"

DiCicco: "The most challenging thing about engineering is the problem solving but sometimes that is also the most rewarding part."

PBA: "What advice do you wish to give those considering a career in Engineering?"

DiCicco: "The best thing you can do is ask questions and learn from others."
