Presentation Summary

Alan reviewed the philosophy and concept of Holistic Engineering including the educational and development aspects, and the practical tools required to implement the methodology. Although engineering practice has, by necessity, included external issues such as environmental and community impacts, in this evolving world a new kind of engineer is needed. One who can think broadly across disciplines and consider the human dimensions that are at the heart of every engineering challenge.
