The increased dependence of organizations on data and technology has catapulted engineers into obtaining a newfound status as heroes in these modern times due to their wide range of technical capabilities.
However, one question remains: “How does an engineer play a pivotal role in giving back to the pandemic-laden community, especially during this digital age?”
Communities nowadays will require welfare prioritization from a sustainability point of view, and it’s no surprise that engineers will manage to deliver on this demand.
Additionally, engineers play a crucial role in many emerging areas, such as the circular economy, among other aspects. They will also employ their know-how in terms of asset reuse and regeneration.
Not to mention, using a broad range of advanced technologies for the common good will allow engineers to give back. Blockchain, for instance, is usually associated with cryptocurrency.
If engineers integrate blockchain technology with waste management, it would be possible to monitor waste collection and mobilization, thus preventing illegal waste dumping.
Through the use of advanced technologies, all the while practicing sustainability and maintaining a healthy community, there is no doubt that engineers will also be highly considered heroes of our time.
