The key questions were: “Why become an engineer? What are the privileges of this profession?”
The desire to see the fruit of your work is natural. Engineering is perfectly suited for this purpose – the engineer’s work is always before everyone’s eyes. Concluding with the famous statement of Herbert Hoover, US President from 1929-1933: “There is the fascination of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realization in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings jobs and homes to men. Then it elevates the standards of living and adds to the comforts of life. That is the engineer’s high privilege.”
