To respect the functionalism of engineers in contributing to companionship. ? To comcomposture engineers to be proactive in discussion societal needs. Introduction How do community recognize engineers? 6Introduction ? Whatever the beggarly apprehension of an engineer, this homily earn rendezvous on opposed roles of, and denoteed by, engineers. ? Not precisely politicality astounded by: ? calculations, ? designs (structural, hydrological, chips, fuzzy systems & control; cyber-security, etc. ), ? drawings, ? Analysis, ? supervision of rendering etc. 7Introduction Sociality as an engineer is past than this, and sometime he denotes roles which on earliest collision are not linked to their functional luxuriance. ? It is stressed that the luxuriance beggarly as an engineer is sever of the reasons which an engineer can evince his versatility. The Engineer is versatile! 8Roles of Engineers Several roles denoteed by engineers include: ? Managers ? Scientists ? Experts ? Politicians ? Academics ? Others 9Roles of Engineers Engineers as Managers ? Who is a superintendent? ? Someone who plans, organizes, coordinates, controls, executes, and achieves the objectives that are entrusted upon him. Career rate ? Are engineers good-tempered-tempered-natured-natured-natured superintendents? ? E. g. Alfred Sloan of Public Motors – electrical engineer 10Roles of Engineers Engineers as Managers ? The discourse gurus: divers of them were skilled as engineers! ? Michael E Porter – “competitive advantage” – aeronautical/effortless engineer ? W. Edward Deming – “quality” - electrical engineer ? Joseph Juran – “quality” – electrical engineer ? Henry Mintzberg – “strategic discourse” – effortless engineer ? Tom Peters – “Excellence” – polite engineer ? F. W. Taylor – “scientific discourse”, “time disturbance consider” – effortless engineer (? ) Henry Fayol – “Industrial discourse” – mining engineer ? Henry Gantt – “Gantt chart” – effortless engineer 11Roles of Engineers Engineers as Scientists ? Investigation and engineering are interlinked; it would not be wickedness to say that engineering is applied investigation. (Science is the speculative substratum of engineering? ) ? Paul Dirac – 1933 Nobel Prize Winner in Physics – skilled as an electrical engineer 12Roles of Engineers Engineers as compliants ? E. g. Giving compliant opinions in affect as to what could bear been the suit(s) of the issues in dispute: Highland Tower grief, Dingo baby case; ? Melcom Achimota structure molestation Forensic consider 13Roles of Engineers Engineers as politicians ? Almost the unimpaired Chinese commencement are engineers! ? Hu Jintao, fmr. Chinese Prez – Hydraulic engineer ? Boris Yelsin, fmr. Russian President – polite engineer ? Prof. De Graft Johnson, fmr. V. P. , Ghana (1979-81) – polite engineer ? Aliu Mahama, fmr. V. P. , Ghana (2001-09) – structure tech 14Roles of Engineers Engineers in Politics: Picture of the globe politicians…. 15Roles of Engineers Engineers as academics ? Need I say past? 16Roles of Engineers Others ? Engineers as salesmen ? Engineers as entrepreneurs ? Engineers as lawyers? Engineers as Reverends or Pastors ? Etc. 17Engineers & the Environment ? Engineers don’t possess-effect in a vacuum: ? They are sever and package of the companionship; ? They continue to engage the needs of companionship; ? They hamper the instrument of companionship; ? The environment include: ? The superfluous and marketoperative environment ? The collective environment ? The collective environment: the globalized globe ? The cultural environment ? The allowoperative environment 18Engineers as Professionals ? What is the confluence and interdependence of engineers vis-a-vis the companionship? ? The acceptance is the Functional Engineer! ? Who is a functional? What is a “profession”? 5 aspects: i. Nature of work: metaphysical, invisible vs. manual, specialized skills and conversance ii. Munwritten aspect: this goes further public probity, conscientiousness, codes of pass and ethics, “self regulation” iii. Collective organization: functional companionship, minute and sufficiency, “accreditation” and “recognition” – e. g. Ghana Act 819, 2011. iv. Status v. Impartiality and insurrection 19Engineers of Today ? Engineers owe once to ? the public public: protection, environment ? plain consumers of the scheme ? equal engineers ? clients e. g. empire, perseverance ? Engineers owe once to themselves ? which are inborn in their works and state to which they appertain ? allowoperative requirements: functional oversight ? contractual duties ? “the superior good-tempered-tempered-natured-natured” 20Engineers of Today ? Today’s engineer must bear pitfall to other fields of conversance and skills (as-well his element) in adjust to be operative to uprightly free his functions: ? despatch and gift skills: unwritten and written ? economics and finance ? law ? gift of self! ? Paradigm shift: ? Engineers should not scarcely corcorcorrespond to need: ? They should invent or expect the needs and be leaders of companionship. They should bear foresights for “unfulfilled needs”. 21Project Topics ? How can you use the principles of Human Engineering to discourse the Cyber-crime threatening in Ghana? ? OR ? How can Tertiary Students assist to the Digital Inclusion in Ghana? ? 15 points ?
