I have the greatest respect for engineers (as in chemical,
electrical or mechanical), who labor with great intelligence
in obscurity, developing processes or producing wonderful
products for my enjoyment.

I've been enjoying about a zillion, perhaps two zillion,
wonderful products which were developed by others;
while I've made no such contribution.

I found the following when I entered "humility - engineering"
into an Internet search engine:


Engineers' Creed

As a Professional Engineer, I dedicate my professional knowledge
and skill to the advancement and betterment of human welfare.

I pledge:

To give the utmost of performance;

To participate in none but honest enterprise;

To live and work according to the laws of man
and the highest standards of professional conduct;

To place service before profit, the honor and standing
of the profession before personal advantage, and the
public welfare above all other considerations.

In humility and with need for Divine Guidance, I make this pledge.

Adopted by National Society of Professional Engineers, June 1954
