UNESCO report on Engineering

Engineering is the most popular subject yet engineering a prototype is the most challenging conversion task in taking `idea' to `market'. The Report sheds new light on the need to:
develop public and policy awareness and understanding of engineering, affirming the role of engineering as the driver of innovation, social and economic development; develop information on engineering, highlighting the urgent need for better statistics and indicators on engineering ; transform engineering education, curricula and teaching methods to emphasize relevance and a problem-solving approach to engineering; more effectively innovate and apply engineering and technology to global issues and challenges such as poverty reduction, sustainable development and climate change – and urgently develop greener engineering and lower carbon technology.
