Celebrate the Global Day of the Engineer

We live in a world shaped by engineering

Engineers have enormous responsibility in defining how we live on this shared planet.  They are at the forefront of solving issues around food, water and energy sustainability, as well as transportation and communications.  Their work permeates many aspects of a person's daily life. Beyond this, engineers help to solve many of the world's most puzzling problems.

Thanks to engineers many of us enjoy better healthcare, greater life expectancy and a good quality of life. We can get to school or work every day, and travel around the world for business or holidays. We are better fed, better clothed and better housed, and we live in a safer environment. In the developing world engineers are making a real difference in improving lives; bringing safe, reliable water sources to communities or designing devices to end preventable infant mortality.

From smart phones to electric cars, from artificial hearts to humanoid robots, engineers are at the forefront of ground breaking innovations which offer opportunities to enable global society to become more advanced in its in its capabilities and open up a world of possibilities.

We have a lot to thank engineers for
