Engineers in today's world
"Engineering is the professional art of organizing and guiding people's work, applying scientific knowledge and sparingly using nature's materials and energies to produce goods and services of interest to the society, meeting their needs and following safety standards." This definition, which was adopted by the Brazilian Federal Council on Engineering, Architecture and Agronomics - CONFEA, in 1993, summarizes the activities carried out by engineers.
Technological development should be sustainable and environment-friendly. Engineers play an important role and therefore their education should go beyond the limits of technique and technology. In addition to talent, creativity and intuition, connected to scientific and technological knowledge, Engineering professionals should have a general culture that enables them to critically assess issues of administrative management and human relations, and a clear view of the social consequences of their work in a globalized world.
