The public once esteemed engineers as both visionaries and leaders in a noble profession essential to the welfare of humankind. Today, though, engineers are often seen as mere advisors and technicians. In her book, The 21st-Century Engineer, Dr. Galloway argues that this situation must change and that the means to do so are in the hands of engineers themselves. In this show she will discuss the new global landscape where megaprojects, sustainability, infrastructure security, and multicultural work teams pose challenges for which engineers may be unprepared. She will also discuss why she believes the existing system for educating engineers must change, and discuss her proposal for a new master’s degree in professional engineering management.
