The Global Engineering Series challenges students, faculty and administrators, and working engineers to cross the borders of countries, and it follows those who do. Engineers and engineering have grown up within countries. The visions engineers have had of themselves, their knowledge, and their service have varied dramatically over time and across territorial spaces. Engineers now follow diasporas of industrial corporations, NGOs, and other transnational employers across the planet. To what extent do engineers carry their countries with them? What are key sites of encounters among engineers and non-engineers across the borders of countries? What is at stake when engineers encounter others who understand their knowledge, objectives, work, and identities differently? What is engineering now for? What are engineers now for? The Series juxtaposes contributions from distinct disciplinary, analytical, and geographical perspectives to encourage readers to look beyond familiar intellectual and geographical boundaries for insight and guidance. Holding paramount the goal of high-quality scholarship, it offers learning resources to engineering students and faculty and working engineers crossing the borders of countries. Its commitment is to help them improve engineering work through critical self-analysis and listening.
