International Systems Engineer Day
Systems engineers are a new group that is rapidly becoming one of the most important in the world, as the world becomes more digitalized.
Every day systems engineers make a huge contribution to the world we live in. They allow us to live more comfortable lives and our professional lives wouldn’t be the same without them.
Many complex projects are handled by systems engineers, including spacecraft design, computer chip design and robotics, as well as software integration and bridge-building. Systems engineers are responsible for many complex projects, including the computer you use to read this article, the plane you take to exotic destinations, and the bridge you cross every day to get to work.
In the 1940s, Bell Telephone Laboratories introduced the term systems engineering. Systems engineering is now divided into many sub-fields 75 years later. These include cognitive systems engineering and industrial engineering.
International Systems Engineer Day was created just recently by the folks at www.systemsengineerday.com as a way of saying thank you to the men and women who sit in front of computers for hours every day to make our lives better and easier.
Today is your day if you are a systems engineer. Make the most of it. Maybe it’s time to take a day off from work and look at the real world instead of just the Windows desktop ones. Enjoy the fresh air, relax your eyes and enjoy a picnic. If you prefer a social environment, you can get together with your fellow systems engineers and have a few beers. You’ll also get to laugh at the jokes you don’t understand.
Even if you aren’t a systems engineer, it is still a chance to show your appreciation for the system engineers in your life. The folks at www.systemsengineerday.com have plenty of suggestions about how you can do this.
Don’t let another year pass without thanking all those who make the world a better place each day. Celebrate their accomplishments!
