AN INTRODUCTION TO HUMAN ENGINEERING

“To lead, influence and inspire”

Speaker: Ashraf Habibullah 

Research conducted at the Carnegie Institute of Technology (aka the Carnegie Mellon College of Engineering) has suggested that only 15% of your financial success is due to your technical expertise. The other 85% is due to your skills in human engineering, i.e. your personality and your ability to deal with people. And as strategic use of economic power translates into influence and recognition, perhaps a closer look at the need for an education involving human engineering is in order.  

It is a fact that a structural engineering education is focused almost exclusively on technical topics with practically no exposure to human engineering. Could that be the reason why the professional fees and compensation for structural engineers do not even begin to reflect the profession's immeasurable contributions to humanity? And why our profession is not even in the running for any high profile recognition or prize, such as a Nobel?

In this talk, Ashraf emphasizes the need for a human engineering based education. He convincingly demonstrates, with his usual enthusiasm and humor, why it is important to cultivate deep personal beliefs, to develop public speaking skills and to become familiar with the arts, human psychology and human chemistry. These talents will enable young engineers to enter the professional world ready to lead, influence and inspire!
