Namaste All,

The Structural Engineer maybe paid directly by the builder /
architect but ultimately the money is coming from the public
at large.

An individual engineer may feel that the profession itself
doesn't get the recognition it deserves and therefore as an
individual there is not much that can be done. However its a
catch-22 situation where in unless the individuals take
initiatives the perceptions shall not change.

I feel the structural engineering community must directly
reach out to the public at large too. Most cities now have
science parks or some place where an attempt is made to
inculcate a scientific temperament in the general society.
Salient features of structural engineering can be
incorporated at such place so that it has its deserved place
under the sun. Perhaps some exhibits that demonstrate
difference between unengineered, poorly engineered and
soundly engineered constructions.

Also sefindia.org web site can have pages that interest the
public at large. Such as why its important to evaluate the
quality of structural engineering of a construction. Simple
guidance for obvious indicators of quality of construction.
Information on how they can make a more elaborate
determination and how much it would cost them typically.
Also say a simple quiz that persons can take to judge how
much they know of what they should.

with regards,

Dhirendra Tripathi

Dear All

In our society many buildings are built by non civil engineers ( local contractors / builders) and are getting approvals. In fact the key lies in the local municipal authorities to make it mandatory for getting approval any building, the builder / contractor should submit the detailed design calculations with seismic criteria. This will keep the non civil engineers (contractors) from building high rises at bay. This, I think, will surely rise the reputation and demand for civil engineers.

Sudhakar
