Global Engineering Survey Highlights Environmental Challenges

Global Engineering Survey Highlights Environmental Challenges

Environmental issues will be the number one global challenge over the next 25 years, according to a DiscoverE survey of nearly 3,000 engineers from more than 80 countries

Issues cited by the respondents as “most daunting” include access to clean water and sanitation, economical clean energy, clean air, and sustaining lands and oceans.

The full 20-question online survey, which was conducted from February 5 to March 10, explored many aspects of the engineering profession, from the people and reasons that motivated participants to become engineers, to how they have grown in their careers, to what excites them most about the profession. Respondents were from a cross-section of disciplines, led by civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and chemical engineering.
