[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Attention  SEAINT List members:

Tonight I received this very disturbing  FAX  from the president of the American Institute Of Engineers   (AIE).

I scanned the FAX,  translated the letters (OCR),  and imported into this e-mail message for your information.

I think you  might be extremely interested in the proposal.

Please  PLEASE  if you have comments about this FAX   do NOT  (DO NOT)  send them to me!

Write, E-mail,  FAX    - Telephone   the author Martin  Gottlieb  President  AIE

AlE has announced the title of Structural Engineer should be deleted from the lexicon of employer given titles. Reason one cannot receive a degree in structural engineering.  The more wide spread title is civil engineer.

The impact may be tremendous, I would think.  Of the multitude and variety of titles received from employers, the line has to be drawn somewhere.

Why,      you ask?    It affects career patterns and career length.

I would appreciate your input and those' from your colleagues who I encourage you to circulate this memo.

The  "YES"  list from AIE is   engineer, civil engineer, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, metallurgical engineer,  chemical engineer. Software engineer and software scientist is a toss-up.

Engr. Martin S. Gottlieb, President

P.S. AlE has also approved chemist, physicist and mathematician and most others from the world of science, which end with "ist".
