Lays out the role of professional organizations in engineering in Great Britain, in contrast to the US, and the devaluing of engineering work.
Virginia Tech’s Video Broadcast Services and I produced these videos in 2002 to meet overwhelming demand for the Engineering Cultures course. Since then, STS Ph.D. students have used them to teach a range of online versions. My classroom version has evolved significantly, especially by clarifying that it follows images engineers advance of themselves and their countries, and by calling greater attention to what such images hide. Still, these videos have proven instructive to many. I’m happy to address any specifics via comments.
Hearty thanks to Kristen Koopman, STS Ph.D. candidate, for editing, annotating, and posting the entire corpus. Thanks to you for watching!
