During the inauguration ceremonies of the new Grove School of Engineering at The City College of New York, Dr. Andrew Grove addressed several gatherings of students, faculty and alumni on how engineers can help address some of the largest challenges currently facing the United States.
Among the key points Dr. Grove, an alumnus and long-time leader of the Intel Corporation, made are:
- Engineers are problem solvers. “We take the problem, decompose it and solve it,” he said.
- “The first tenet of engineering is always know what problem you are working on.”
- “Globalization will make everything harder.”
- “Disruptive technologies” can help lead the way forward.
- The U.S. needs the trained graduates of City College for our nation’s technical competitiveness.
- Engineers are ‘centurions’ who should be called on to find solutions to some of society’s biggest problems.
