Big Shoes to Fill
By Clint Isa, PE Knowledge transfer is the essence of sustaining and advancing the engineering profession.  As a profession, earlier generations of civil engineers are entering the twilights of their careers, careers that began on one side of the technological revolution and are ending on the other.  They carry with them not just a wealth of advanced technical knowledge, but a way of thinking about problems that likely differs from those of us whose careers have been largely supported by sophisticated computer programs.  I think that, oftentimes, younger engineers (myself included) are eager to solve complex problems with complex solutions because the technology affords us the ability to do so.  What gets lost, and what earlier generations of engineers have, is the perspective of how to provide simple, yet elegant, solutions to complicated problems. » Read More
