Invisible engineer


Journal Article

A hundred years ago, the general public couldn't hear enough about the wonders achieved by engineering, yet today's professionals are mostly anonymous. Advancing technology and the growth of specialized societies have robbed the profession of a single voice, a public image as clear-cut as a doctor's or lawyer's. For engineers to achieve a more visible role in society in the future, we must seize every opportunity to tell our story.
