"From urban centers to remote corners of Earth, the depths of the oceans to space, humanity has always sought to transcend barriers, overcome challenges, and create opportunities that improve life in our part of the universe. In the last century alone, many  GREAT ENGINEERING ACHIEVEMENTS  became so commonplace that we now take them mostly for granted.  Technology allows an abundant supply of food and safe drinking water for much of the world.  We rely on electricity for many of our daily activities.  We can travel the globe with relative ease, and bring goods and services wherever they are needed.  Growing computer and communications technologies are opening up vast stores of knowledge and entertainment. As remarkable as these engineering achievements are, certainly just as many more great challenges and opportunities remain to be realized.  While some seem clear, many others are indistinct and many more surely lie beyond most of our imaginations."- National Academy of Engineering.
