Engineering, in its broadest sense, is any activity that applies scientific and mathematical knowledge to the solution of material problems. The modern profession of engineering is involved with designing, building and manufacturing most of the devices, systems and structures that characterize technical civilization. Engineering touches virtually every human activity in industrial society, from computers, space vehicles, lasers and satellite communications to buildings, roads, sewage systems, food packaging and paper manufacturing.
To some extent, the history of engineering is the history of humanity’s progress in using tools and observations on the nature of matter to overcome physical limitations and to modify, harness and control the natural environment. Highly organized, complex engineering works were a prominent feature of many of the civilizations of antiquity, where abundant technical skill developed in the design and construction of fortifications, monuments, roads, aqueducts, irrigation networks and other installations, some of which are still in use
Legal Issues for Engineers
Refers to the numerous legal considerations that must be taken into account by engineers, considerations that are typically outside of the traditional knowledge base and experience of an engineer. Patents and the process of obtaining one; maintenance of licensing and certification; and having a firm understanding of codes and standards are just some of the many issues facing engineers in their career path.
Alternative Dispute Resolution Research
Information about researching common ADR methodologies, including arbitration, negotiation, mediation, and more.
Arbitration is a common method of dispute resolution that is used by contracting parties. If a contract has an arbitration clause and a dispute arises, a neutral arbitrator can issue legally-enforceable resolution to the dispute (an arbitration award).
Advantages to arbitration include preserving confidentiality, saving legal fees, and, potentially, more limited discovery than a court trial.
In the mediation process, the disputing parties meet with a neutral person who facilitates the discussion of their disagreement and the negotiation of a compromise. The main goal of the mediator is not to judge which party is “right” or “wrong,” but to encourage and help the parties to communicate about their differences so that a mutually-agreeable solution can be reached.
Parties who engage in negotiation meet in good faith to discuss their dispute with the goal of coming to a mutually agreeable resolution. Negotiation can take place with or without a lawyer.
