One job every engineer must do is craft their philosophy of engineering. That is, they must bring together the rules they will use to guide and shape their engineering form. This philosophy is not a map to gain wealth, position, and power, but a guide that will help the engineer use his/her skills to benefit people and society. To form this philosophy we need skills other than those normally gained in engineering schools.
