Welcome to our newest batch of engineering humor. After 10 years of curating engineering jokes, we’re getting a feel for selection. First and foremost, we don’t use any humor that puts down engineers. Second, we look for humor that stems (or STEMS) from the practice of engineering itself.


Rob Spiegel has covered manufacturing for 19 years, 17 of them for Design News. Other topics he has covered include automation, supply chain technology, alternative energy, and cybersecurity. For 10 years, he was the owner and publisher of the food magazine Chile Pepper.
