The engineer becomes a professional manager
"Today over a third of the management of large industry in America is in the hands of engineers, over a third of mature engineering graduates now find their duties largely managerial in nature, and most engineers have important contacts with management. Management has recently become a profession into which the engineer now has preferred entree. May I briefly summarize and document some of the evidence on this development which is unknown to the general public and too little known to engineers and engineering educators themselves. Even so comprehensive a program as that of this Centennial gives little attention to the engineer's outstanding contribution to management."--Page 338.
