A note for all my students, myself, my son and my daughter

Written by Gouw Tjie Liong, Ir., M.Eng, ChFC, PhD. Posted in Motivational

NOTHING WILL CHANGE UNLESS ATTITUDE CHANGES!

Try to enjoy what we learn and what we do. Acting this way will bring us to success.
If we enjoy what we are doing, we never work a day in our life.

The only limit in our life is what we put in our mind.
Even though sometime we do not believe in it, but this is actually true!

If we put our heart into what we do, eventually only success will follow.

So, what I have learned throughout my adult life is:
BE A GOOD STUDENT AT EVERY MOMENT OF OUR LIFE.

TEKNIK SIPIL kotor?

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

Ada seorang mahasiswa saya yang bilang, teknik sipil itu semakin dia lihat, terlihat semakin kotor. Mandor mengutip upah anak buahnya. Pelaksana mengutip upah Mandor. Saya bilang semua hal ada Plus dan ada Negative. Siang ada positif nya siang, ada juga negatif nya siang. Hujan ada positif dan ada negatifnya juga. Pisau bila digunakan secara negatif maka hasilnya juga parah. Sebaliknya bila digunakan secara positif bisa sangat berguna.

Engineer dan Permasalahannya (3-end) – HOW TO SELL OURSELVES?

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

3.2 HOW TO SELL OURSELVES ?

Era globalisasi membawa perubahan tatanan sosial yang amat cepat dan dunia ekonomi yang semakin kompetitif. Teknologi internet membuat dunia semakin kecil, email, world wide web, internet phone dan video conferencing membuat Engineer dapat melakukan tugasnya dari mana saja, tanpa perlu melakukan banyak tatap muka langsung. Ini berarti persaingan dengan Engineer dari luar negeri juga semakin terbuka lebar. Jelas bahwa dunia Engineering yang menjadi salah satu pilar penting dalam pembangunan bangsa dan negara juga mengalami dampak yang sangat besar, baik dari segi teknologi maupun dalam sisi ekonomi.
