Engineers are going to have to adapt to the changing engineering practice expected in the future, says a new report by the National Academy of Engineering. According to the book, The Engineer of 2020: Visions of Engineering in the New Century, individual engineers will have to become more involved in all sectors of society as well as help the public deal with uncertain dilemmas such as climate change, spread of disease, and ethical decision-making for new technologies. The study, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, NEC Foundation of America, SBC Foundation, Honeywell International, and the National Academy of Engineering Fund, also has a free book available that outlines these issues at http://rbi.ims.ca/3852-522.
