• Question: Why do engineers get left out of the frame sometimes? Its a great job that people don't respect as much.

      True but not true! Particularly in my field, we need to have medical knowledge about the work we do and their clinical implications. But still, it is doctors, radiographers, sonographers who handle the instruments and use the software. Hence they are the people who are recognised by public. I agree that they do a wonderful job but now I think people have started to recognise the engineers. We have changed from the era where engineering only meant electric circuits and computer codes, to an era where the work of an engineer is recognised and appreciated in every field.
