Growing role for the 'invisible profession'?


Journal Article

The myriad successes of engineering have rendered the profession invisible in the midst of an abundance of technological innovation. And that's a switch from the situation at the end of the 19th century, when the engineer was the model innovator and the hero of society. The great industrial expositions of that era presented engineers' works to be admired by people from all walks of life, and engineers presented lectures on their works. A revival of the engineering profession is under way to change the perception of engineers.
