Building the World
The Earth has its own conditions and systems, and nature is that portion of those systems in which living things come to exist. Humans are the only living beings who have transcended nature and built their own world, and perhaps constantly rebuilding the world is part of what it means to be human. Although this act of building and rebuilding is the work of many different disciplines, engineers are at its center. Roads, houses, fields, farms, hospitals, cars, planes, computers, satellites, and many other essential elements of the infrastructure we need to sustain modern life are the products of engineering. At Tekhnelogos, we believe in the importance of engineering for a world that is in harmony with nature, makes human life meaningful, and provides equal opportunity to all, and we are committed to doing our part in building that world.
