IEEE Makes It Easier to
Submit Articles
For Conferences
The Author Center's new guide helps
researchers through the process
find people who call themselves engineers and they
don't have the national
accreditation nor the superior studies. They do it
thinking it will help them
gain a better social position. This is a deception and
a crime, in my opinion.
-Victor Fermín Gómez
Anyone who applies existing science to solve a problem is engaged in the act
of engineering and can
be described as an "engineer." A person who gets
paid to do so is, in fact, a
"professional engineer." If
a governing body imposes
limitations on who may
engage in certain types of
engineering, then one of
those authorized persons
becomes a "(insert governing
body name here) licensed
engineer." Any person or
body who says otherwise
should complain to lexicographers. I get tetchy when
anybody tries to restrict my
use of a word or phrase to
accurately communicate.
