I think, as an engineer I am privileged as I had the opportunity to go to a university and have got a job earning more than many others in the world who probably work just as hard as me. your response has taught me that I should not expect a lot from others. I will try and do what I can along with paying my taxes, leading a peaceful life and will always be on hunt to find other like minded people. And my opinion was not just based on my colleagues not knowing about the news but it was based on the fact that not many cared to know.

Every human have their absorbing or attarcted by certain types of events. This is carved by their heridity or scientifically saying in their DNA. So thinking this way every human is superb and there is no comparision. Also as the time wheel revolves and i viewed many lifes(4 generations) around me inclusive of mine and i am unable to justfy why things happen on both + and -.Probably + and - joins together to flow the human generation cycle.

Just becuase someone does not know whats happening in London, they cannot be judged as insensitive or irresponsible.As long as a person doesnot hurt anyone intentionally, behaves well in society,pays his taxes and leads a peaceful life, he is very much responsible citizens.

While agreeing with the overall sentiment here, I would say engineers as a community are a subset of the larger population and the "socially aware" percentage would more or less be the same. Maybe, students of social sciences are more aware of the issues concerning humanity, environment, society and general public welfare but otherwise we should expect to find people who don't care about the larger picture. And, I do not dispute their world view just like I would not want anyone to question my perspective. I like to believe that everyone has substantive reason to be the way he or she is. The path of awareness is one which each one of us has to travel alone. I wish you luck with where you are going!

Thank you very much for your comment and I am going to try and keep myself the way I am. Hopefully as years pass I will still try and be responsible and do what I can for the society. I appreciate your comment regarding the strength of cooperation and I will always be on a hunt for like minded people.

Thanks for your wishes and I hope I remain conscious and maintain ethics and moral values. This was one reason I choose Engineering as I thought my progress in my job will not be an obstacle in my conscience. It was a great step you took if you left your job coz of the wrong doings in the company. I guess in an ideal world the head of the company should have been made to leave his job if he was unethical. I hope you have found a better job since and if not good luck.

Well, a couple of things you might like to look into are corporate social responsibility and about a man named Konosuke Matsushita. Matsushita is better known as the founder of Panasonic, but he was quite the philosopher and I found his book "The Path" to be very insightful. I myself have been struggling with my conscience about ethics and doing what's "right". I even quit my job during this recession because the company head was doing some fairly nasty stuff which probably was even illegal. It sounds like you're a good person and I wish you the best in remaining socially conscious as an engineer and as a person.

I have great respect for engineering profession. I won't let any one change my direction but my disappointment was in the fact that no one cared. I think we engineers in certain ways are privileged. generally we have all been to university and are capable of understanding what is going around but we choose to not bother. I think along with the work everyone (not just engineers) people should be aware of what concerns so many of us. i just wish there are some engineers out there that think society is important.

Engineers design nuclear bombs and MRI scanners, F1 cars and other toys. there are many types of engineers doing many things. Its a big world out there, it also needs engineers like you with a world view as well as a technical insight. Don't let your direction be shaped by the others you see, they are all going in their own direction, just as you should.

I am a recent graduate and I love electronics and the profession but from what little I have seen I tend to think engineering professionals are not so interested in society. For instance I was in canteen with many senior engineers and surprisingly not one person on the table knew anything about the London protests. I do have a great respect for the profession but it would be even more if we were more responsible citizens.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
