"Engineers in Australia and globally are probably the most under rated of all professions. Rarely do we see movies where an engineer saves the day through a thoughtful application of applied science (with apologies to James Bond who must have studied engineering!) But the great majority of us take our satisfaction from the collaboration with our colleagues, and the positive influence we have on our communities and societies as a whole. We innovate, fix problems and usually go about this with a modicum of fuss or self-focus, while making sure the traffic flows, planes stay up in the air, people can drink safe water, buildings can withstand cyclones and people can enjoy a high standard of living through our efforts. It’s worth taking the time to reflect on this and the benefits of being part of a great global profession." Andrew Ryan, IPWEAQ Engineer 2015
