Engineering weatherman

Answer this survey to tell us which way the engineering winds are blowing.

08/17/2010


I was raised on Bob Dylan and Beethoven. My parents, reformed hippies, made sure that my formative years were filled with music of all sorts, including what they called “the greatest of our time, Bob Dylan.”

Though I wouldn’t necessarily call Dylan my favorite, one of his songs runs through my head regularly: Subterranean Homesick Blues. (You can listen to it here if you want to know what’s going on inside my head.)

The lines that keep running through my head over and over today:

You don’t need a weatherman
To know which way the wind blows

These lyrics are indicative of the building engineering community to me. I think many engaged engineers can see the writing on the wall, and know that change is coming. But what do you need to ensure you’re up-to-date on these changes?

To help the editorial team at Consulting-Specifying Engineer sort all these changes out, we’re asking you, our audience, to let us know what your pain points are. Please let us know what’s important in your work by completing this 5-minute survey. This will help us determine which way the wind is blowing.
