The Power of Engineering

I’ve been an Engineer for over 40 years. Wow, has it been that long? It’s what I do and it’s what I’ve done throughout my adult life. So I guess I’ve gotten to that point where I just take it for granted. But recently I watched a documentary that brought it all back to me all the excitement and rush of what lured me to this challenging and rewarding profession in the first place.

But the world has changed since the heady days of the Space Race, back when I was young and engineering was cool. And this made me wonder what, if anything, lures today’s young people to a career in engineering. In fact, do they even know what engineering is? I have some thoughts on that.

Let's see. I guess first and foremost I am a life wanderer on a journey of discovery and experience. Can you tell I am a child of the sixties? Along the way I have become many things ... a College Professor (now retired after 28 wonderful years), a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, a singer/songwriter, a musician, an artist, a world traveler, a fan of science fiction and history, and a student of human nature. But my greatest accomplishments are being father to two of the most amazing and accomplished young men I have ever known, and husband to the incredible and delightful woman who made that possible.
