The Engineer's Perspective

Building tomorrow’s engineers

About Us

The Engineer’s Perspective (TEP) was founded to equip engineers holistically for success in their careers.

Created by UBC Chemical Engineering graduates Josh Agarwal and Ola Akinsunmade, we both  share a passion for simplifying complex ideas into easy-to-understand information. 

Our mission is quite simple. To inform and educate, offering insight from an engineer’s perspective.

My first career dream as a child was to be a paleontologist, but I was told that there would be no bones left to dig up by the time I grew up. I am now a Chemical Engineer.”

“Fun fact about me is that I always wanted to follow in the footsteps of Ben Carson and become a neurosurgeon. Sad thing is I have a terrible fear of blood.”
