Enterpreneurship in Engineering School

Written by Gouw Tjie Liong, Ir., M.Eng, ChFC, PhD. Posted in Engineers, Problems of Engineers

Entrepreneurship Class 2012 from Binus Civil Engineering, which I have honor to teach and guide. Hopefully, one day there will be a real successful entrepreneur from this class. This is a good subject to be taught in engineering school. ENGINEERS have to learn economy and marketing, or else he/she will only become SLAVE on his own subject! Easily forced to fight and pressurized each other by the name of bidding process created by the economist! Economist makes all the money and we all make money for them!! Why not learn to take our reasonable share??


What Do Highly Successful People Have In Common? Can Engineers Learn?

Written by Gouw Tjie Liong, Ir., M.Eng, ChFC, PhD. Posted in Problems of Engineers

Engineers are the backbone of a successful nation, do we all engineers agree? Without engineers, can a country have a good infrastructures, productive factories, luxury office buildings, etc???? So, why are engineers earning much less compared to economist, doctors, lawyers, and other professional? Why do we want to go through a bidding that force us, engineers, fight against one another? Let’s first read the article about what do highly successful people have in common…

  1. They Work Hard! Yes, They Play Hard, Too! 
    They get up early, they rarely complain, they expect performance from others, but they expect extraordinary performance from themselves. Repeated, high-level success starts with recognition that hard work pays off.
  2. They Are Incredibly Curious And Eager To Learn
    They study, ask questions and read – constantly. An interesting point, however: While most of them did well in school, the difference is that they apply or take advantage of what they learn. Repeated success is not about memorizing facts, it’s about being able to take information and create, build, or apply it in new and important ways. Successful people want to learn everything about everything!
