Thanks for the list. I was excited to see engineering as a category, but then I found out it actually means software engineering. It would be very helpful to other types of engineers if EAs would specify software engineering if that's what they mean. There are opportunities for the other types of engineering within EA, including plant-based and clean meat, climate change and food for catastrophes, with a number of effective theses here.

It isn't meant to mean software engineering, but all engineering. Unfortunately, aside from the FB group I made, I wasn't aware of any other EA materials and resources for engineers other than specifically for software engineering.
