Engineering, culture and competence

Ennals, Richard (1995) Engineering, culture and competence. In: Göranzon, Bo, (ed.) Skill, technology and enlightenment: on practical philosophy. London, U.K. : Springer-Verlag. pp. 265-272. ISBN 3540199209


This chapter considers engineering skills, their cultural context, and the extent to which they can be sustained and developed through an approach to education and training which is based on competence. It is argued that a broader approach is required, giving due attention to the tacit knowledge of the skilled worker and the culture of working life.
