We as engineers absolutely do great things! I’ll speak specifically about civil engineers in this post because that is my background. Wikipedia defines civil engineering as a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings.
So basically, what they are saying is civil engineers design, or at least contribute to the design, of just about everything and anything you see when you walk outdoors, right? Buildings, roadways, dams, traffic signals, traffic signs, storm water ponds and catch basins, dams, utilities, curbs, sidewalks….stop me at anytime….
I think you get the picture. How many objects that we come in contact with each day are designed by civil engineers? A lot! What we do is so important to everyday society; however people rarely recognize it because they take all of these things for granted.
