Description
This begins by celebrating engineering excellence and engineer exemplars. Then it describes two liabilities of U.S. engineering, the first of which is how licensure exemptions markedly reduce the engineering community’s ability to protect the public. The second weakness is that the bachelor’s degree as the required formal education for engineering licensure, which has been in effect for eight decades, falls far short of what is needed to prepare tomorrow’s engineers in responsible charge. The presentation offers suggestions for ways to address engineering’s weaknesses by building on its strengths.  
 
 
Stuart G. Walesh, Ph.D., P.E., Dist.M.ASCE, and F.NSPE is an independent consultant providing engineering, leadership, management, and education/training services. Prior to beginning his consultancy, he worked in the academic, government, and business sectors serving as a professor, dean, project engineer and manager, department head, discipline manager, marketer, and litigation consultant. Walesh participated in or managed many projects related to his technical specialty, water resources engineering.
 
He authored six books and many engineering publications and presentations. His most recent books are Introduction to Creativity and Innovation for Engineers (Pearson 2017) and Engineering Your Future: The Professional Practice of Engineering (Wiley 2012). Walesh facilitated and/or made presentations at hundreds of workshops, seminars, classes, webinars, and meetings throughout the U.S. and internationally.
 
Over the past almost two decades he has been active, as an ASCE and NSPE member, in efforts to reform the education and early experience of engineers. Over the past year, he studied the evolution of U.S. engineering in order to better understand its present situation and then develop ideas for improvement, using engineering’s strengths as a foundation.
   
Walesh’s professional work and professional society contributions have been recognized with awards from ASCE, ASEE, Consulting Engineers of Indiana, Indiana Society of Professional Engineers, NSPE, University of Wisconsin, and Valparaiso University.
