Engineering problems are under-defined, there are many solutions, good, bad and indifferent. The art is to arrive at a good solution. This is a creative activity, involving imagination, intuition and deliberate choice.
― Ove Arup
That is what we do. Develop workable solutions. Ones that are durable. Ones that are based on thorough investigations, site surveys and accepted engineering analyses. Ones that sometimes takes hundreds of hours to complete. Those solutions may enable a building or a site to serve as a landmark. Those solutions may prevent flooding or improve the environment. Those solutions may provide energy to thousands, even millions. As engineers, planners and scientists, our aim is to provide solutions; to take your projects from an idea and make them into a reality. We think big while focusing on the smallest of details.
Sometimes without realizing it, the world faces the kinds of problems we can help solve every day. The market trends in the civil, environmental, mining, planning, surveying and energy worlds are ever-changing, and we, as professionals, must change along with them. So we evolve. We adapt. We become innovators of new technology and solutions for these industries because engineering and science is always relevant.
Here at ECSI, we invite you to join us as we serve to inform, to share ideas, to identify trends and demonstrate solutions in our fields. Welcome to Engineering Insight.
