WHO IS AN ENGINEER?
According to USA President Herbert Hoover, who was anengineer before he became a politician, said:The great liability of the engineer …compared to men of other professions……is that his works are out in the open where allcan see them.His acts …..step by step …are in hard substances.He cannot bury his mistakes in the grave like the DOCTORS.He cannot argue them into thin air…..or blame the judge…..likethe LAWYERS.He cannot, like the ARCHITECT, cover his figures with treesand vines.He cannot, like the politicians, screen his shortcomings byblaming his opponents….and hope the people will forget. TheENGINEER simply cannot deny he did it.If his works do not work……he is damned.
