Engineers play a huge role in stabilizing and increasing our economy in our society. Without engineers, we wouldn’t have the luxuries that we take for granted today, whether it is computers, or airplanes, or cars, or whether it’s something as simple as electricity. Without electricity, none of these would be possible, therefore influencing our economy negatively. Our economy is affected directly by the role of engineers. Electrification Electricity is probably the biggest advancement in our technology in the past couple centuries, and it is probably the one that goes the most unnoticed. Without electricity, everybody would be carrying around candles to classes, like in the olden days. Forget using computers, or televisions, something that most all Americans have grown accustomed to especially in the last ten to twenty years. Everyday tasks would have to be altered because of the absence of electricity. Engineers have an active role in all our lives most every minute of the day, and most people could care less. If a hiccup happens and someone’s power goes out, or a whole block goes out, it is then that people look to electricians. Without electrical engineers, our economy would certainly suffer because day to day tasks would not be as easy, thus slowing down manufacturing, production, assembly lines, or any mass-producing function. It would on one hand employ more people, because machines wouldn’t be able to mass-produce items without the aid of humans. However, humans cannot work as fast as machines, and as always, human error would occur all too often, thus hindering the economy. 3
