Top Authors

Singh, Ph. Singh is a world-renowned expert in the fields of kinematic wave theory and entropy theory, and in hydraulics and physical hydrology. For more than 40 years, Vijay has dedicated his scientific and intellectual efforts to the betterment of humanity through national and international contributions to water resources engineering. Singh has received numerous honors, awards, and fellowships, including honorary professorships and foreign memberships from universities, national academies, and government entities representing several European countries, India, China, Australia, Canada, and Mexico.

The research he pioneered in entropy theory in hydrology has become the roots that have nourished collaboration with distinguished scientists and engineers from 15 countries, representing every continent of the world. His hundreds of published articles, textbooks, and book chapters have had a significant educational impact, making him sought after as a keynote speaker the world over.

AAWRE 2018 Board of Trustees Candidates

To view full bio. To that end, it is important to reach out to our fellow professionals in the private sector, government, and academia. There are a lot excellent professionals who I believe should be diplomates but they are not. I believe it must be financially self-supporting or else it may not survive for long. Fourth, I would like to reach out to our current diplomates, seek their opinion and advice, and explore ways by which AAWRE can best serve them and how together we can raise the bar of professional practice.

The Evolving Future of Engineering Licensure

For example, if each diplomate can recruit only one diplomate a year we will become a much bigger organization quickly. Ruth Ayn Hocker , P. She has a broad multi-disciplinary background including transportation design, low impact development, sustainable stormwater management design, stormwater management program development and municipal green infrastructure implementation.

Most Masters degrees, and even most Bachelors degrees, are research and theory based and provide little practical knowledge for the real world. On the job experience is more valuable. To compare our profession to doctors, lawyers, pharmacists, etc.

This initiative seems to make sense, as the impact that engineers make on our society is overlooked for no good reason. Their talents and skills are critical to our world, so comparing them to attorneys or doctors from a stature standpoint I do not believe is off target. Reblogged this on iamvishant and commented: True said. More education does not equal a better engineer, and another piece of paper does not guarantee future success in this industry. That is a great indicator whether the person can work in a fast-paced and stressful environment.

Many practical applications of the theory are not taught in school, and the only way you are going to get that training is to get out into the work force and learn. We operate and maintain utilities, railroads, airports, ports, roads and other facilities that were not designed or constructed with people with Masters or PhDs.

The fact of the matter is that Universities and Colleges are pushing to get more students, and with the recent downturn, the Universities and Colleges have seen attendance pick up as more students stayed in school to ride out the current economic situation. This trend seems to justify this kind of campaign, and I wonder how long it will take those new grads with higher degrees to pay off those MASSIVE student loans. Consulting firms will need to increase their prices to account for these higher paid employees, which will continue to stretch limited dollars for capital projects.

Are owners getting services that justify a price increase? Is a new grad with a Masters or PhD faster at CAD work, counting traffic, building a traffic model or watching a construction project to justify their rate?

Do they produce results faster? Maybe that is the bigger problem…. You certainly make some very valid points. In particular, I like your stream of thought at the end as I now would indeed be interested in knowing if those paying clients have a demand for more highly educated engineers, or if this is just a push internally from the engineering community? I can see both sides of the coin, and again, thank you for sharing your opinion on this topic.

CE programs teach nothing relevant. When these kids come out of school and know how to design roads, basins, etc. There are two fundamental flaws with this campaign. I meet so many people who have purposely forgotten what they have learned, never keep university notes and books to refer to. As a general civil engineer and project manager it frustrating when I have to direct people where to find the answer, and it not just junior engineers it is senior engineers and specialist.

  • Unlike them engineers spend a year on general studies and then are right into learning about engineering. Often they are taking up to 8 courses per semester while the doctor and lawyers are taking general arts and science degrees and completing 4 to 5 courses per semester. In a perfect education system you would start at the bottom as rod man, construction laborer or related work, After a year of labor you would start formal education and alter between work and study for 6 maybe even 10 years. Then we would have some quality engineers. I have to disagree with this. In the past, engineers relied LESS on education and more on the job training.

    He also had about 25 years of experience at the time check my facts. I think what we have seen is an insistence by companies to have ready-to-eat engineers less need for human resources costs of training.
