We cannot yet tell with certainty what the next society and the next economy will look like. We are still in the throes of a transition period. However, we can say that the next society and economy will have a totally different social complexion. It will be a knowledge society with knowledge workers, the largest single and by far the most expensive part of the workforce. Peter Drucker, The Essential Drucker
IN TIMES OF CHANGE, THE LEARNERS WILL INHERIT THE EARTH.

The increasing complexity of the engineering and construction business requires that professionals in the industry be smarter, more flexible, and better able to communicate than their predecessors. We need people who are flexible, can effectively wear multiple hats, work on large complex projects, are people- oriented, and prepared for the business, regulatory, and litigious society they are entering.
