Re-Why Engineers are Narrow-minded, New Research has an idea

Engineer Najim Many thanks for your post. Your efforts to elevate the engineering profession is very commendable. God bless you.

I do not agree 100% with the analysis at Stanford University. Findings had long caused modification in the education of the Engineer. Subjects like management, psychology, finance, law, and sociology, etc have found their ways in varying degrees into engineering curriculums, calling for change everywhere.

Our government and all stakeholders should double efforts to provide incentives for learning and promoting engineering.

It now depends on the school and national education policies. If the Engineer was narrow minded, how do you explain the various inventions, innovations and solutions to problems in natural habitat man found himself? The basic University education gives an insight to the subject, leaving development in the field of practice. Attitude determines Altitude.

I was not looking for money immediately leaving the universities I went to, but rather where I could develope as an engineer, putting to practice what I learnt ! You may have a different attitude else where. In a civilized country money will follow the right attitude. There are people who have benefited from the analytical thinking and judgement of the Engineer, and have stolen the rewards of the Engineer. They make things difficult for the Engineer. They criticise most!

Engineering is everywhere in human life and existence. Housing, Power, Water, Drainage, Transportation, Manufacturing, Healthcare, Communication, Entertainment, Hospitality, to mention some obvious ones. Remove Engineering, where is the society?

Our government and all stakeholders should double efforts to provide incentives for learning and promoting engineering.
