Engineers, Trusted Advisors
Engineers are advocates for progress. Working with both public and private clients, they apply their technological expertise and design vision to improve the structure of the world in which we live. In the public advocacy sphere, engineers act as trusted advisors, educating officials at the local, state, and federal levels on what we can do today and what is possible tomorrow. They offer solutions to pressing problems, such as inadequate roads or unsafe water, while at the same time addressing longer-term issues, such as how to help our society and the economy function and prosper in the decades ahead. Whether they are addressing a neighborhood gathering about a new playground or testifying before a Congressional committee about the nation’s port infrastructure, engineers provide the expert opinions that underpin the decisions that affect the lives of every American.
