Amalya’s Answer

It depends on many factors. First of all, it is conditioned by the setting you are talking about. I mean if you are an engineering student, the ordinary way to be well-introduced to others is your study advancement and academic excellence. If it is a job setting, you should be more than a good employee.
To be a positive exception, just do an exceptional thing!

Kris’s Answer

Sam,

I am curious as to why you refer to yourself as a technician. A Civil Engineering Technician as opposed to a Civil Engineer is most likely someone with an associates degree (two year degree) rather than a bachelors degree (four or five year degree).

For the purpose of this answer I will assume that by being introduced, you are referring to being included into a network of Civil Engineers. A great way to do this is by joining ASCE - the American Society of Civil Engineers - most schools have student chapters that are inexpensive to join. I assume that there are international versions of this society in other countries. Take advantage of any contacts your school department has, especially your course advisor. Participate in job fairs. Inquire about internships. Subscribe to engineering newsletters. Build a resume on LinkedIn.

Typically the third week of February each year is Engineer's week. There should be a variety of activities and conferences to attend in your area at that time.

Do not miss out on constructing a concrete canoe and racing it sometime during your college years. Its a great test of Archimedes Principle and a great friendship building and lifelong memory making exercise.
