Who Is Real Engineering?

Thank you for visiting the Real Engineering website!

If you have got this far you’re probably already familiar with my YouTube channel, Real Engineering. So,  let's talk about some things you may not know. My name is Brian McManus and I'm an engineer from Galway, Ireland. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering and a Master's in Aeronautical Engineering.

My journey with Real Engineering started in early 2016, after saving for 2 years, I quit my job as a Product Manager in the Oil & Gas Industry to pursue my dream of being a YouTuber. My goals for the year were simple:

  • Create a place to share the incredible stories of the men and women who have worked to make  this world a better place.
  • Inspire others to follow their steps
  • Make it my full-time job.

I believe I succeeded these goals and this website represents the next step in the Real Engineering journey. Over the next year I will be expanding the site and hopefully hiring my first full time employees to bring you even more of the content you love.
