Engineering Responsibility to environment

Engineering responsibility for the environment is necessarily closely related to the laws governing environmental matters, but environmental degradation was not the subject of serious federal regulation until the late 1960’s. Until that time, private litigation and the common law were the principal tools for controlling pollution. Usually, however, no single individual was sufficiently harmed by pollution to be motivated to bring suit against a polluter.

Both the states and the Federal government were ineffective in controlling pollution. As a response to this state of affairs, Congress passed the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in 1969. The Act inaugurated “a national policy which will encourage productive and enjoyable harmony between man and his environment….” One of the best-known provisions of the NEPA is the requirement for an environmental impact statement, which enumerates the effect of a project on the environment. Congress then created the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to enforce its mandates.

Engineering Responsibilities to the Non-Human Environment Contemporary technologically advanced civilization has made massive changes in the environment. Western society has tended to conceive of nature as passive, as the fit object of human manipulation and control. This view of nature as passive is amply reflected in our language about the natural world. Land is to be “developed.” “Raw” land is to be “improved.” Natural resources are to be “exploited” and “consumed.” Trees are to be “harvested.” The rivers are to be “harnessed” to produce electrical power.

The wilderness must be “managed.” Nature, like the rest of the non-human world, is to be subservient to human purposes. The environmental movement, so influential during the last twenty-five years, is a reaction against this attitude toward nature, but there is stil a question as to whether the concern for non-human nature should be a part of professional engineering ethics rather than an engineer’s personal ethics.

The engineering of today

While there are many types of engineers in this world that cover a large span of different realms of expertise, such as Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering—one of the most important roles in the industrial space belongs to the Manufacturing Engineer.

Manufacturing Engineers jobs are quite complex. Due to this, the position requires an extremely knowledgeable and well skilled engineer to maintain the position.

  7. Manufacturing Engineering In the Works


Manufacturing Engineering begins with the designing process and moves the project along from that concept to the development of a working product. In reality their work scopes are much more complex, of course, and much more interesting.


  • Design Product(s)
  • Select the best technologies and processes for manufacturing it
  • Plan, design, and engineer facilities that will produce the product(s)
  • Oversee the running, management, maintenance and improvement of the factory


A focuses primarily on the design and operation of integrated systems.

These systems (such as computer networks, robots, EOATs, automated machines, machine tools, and materials-handling equipment) are responsible for the production of high-quality, economically competitive products (anything from machines, tools, parts to jigs, conservation technology and CNC fixtures).


As part of their role, Manufacturing Engineers must also always keep up to date with new technologies and improvements in the field to ensure they are providing their clients with the most innovative advances available.


While the scope of their work can vary greatly, Engineers are mainly hired to:

  • Utilize integrated data systems in order to fully automate a chemical manufacturing facility.
  • Reduce costs or enhance manufactured product quality by designing circuit board manufacturing processes.
  • Evaluate current manufacturing processes and identify a more efficient and cost-effective facility layout.
  • Develop machine retrofit designs – It is critical that machines are compatible with the latest Industry 4.0 technologies, so you can integrate and operate smoothly across a company’s entire facility.
  • Turn into automation solutions to enhance the system’s efficiency.
  • Integrate machines (M2M)

One important thing to keep in mind is that Engineers must accomplish their improved overall efficiencies and outcomes while maintaining employee safety and upholding product quality standards.
