    What’s in a title? With Steve Howe

    What is in a title?  When you’re an engineer, a title could mean a lot. 

    Stephen Howe spoke to Mel & Dom about his observations of a worrying situation in the engineering industry where engineers are chasing the grandiose role title, even if their experience doesn’t equate. 

    “But don't play into this phenomenon of "job title, scope creep" that I think is a disservice to the industry and to the individuals and clients.”

Engineering Heroes as Podcast

All the episodes of this podcast are very useful, insightful and will help other engineer to look, shape and develop qualities that are needed to be a good and ethical engineer in future. We can rarely hear the story and experiences but this podcast made easy for us to listen and learn and get motivated from experienced engineers.
