Control engineers need to promote value in organization, with young people

Downers Grove, IL—Control engineers need to ensure their value is recognized and help young people get excited about manufacturing, according to Mark Hoske, Control Engineering’s editor-in-chief, in a recent interview in Contemporary Controls' The Extension newsletter.


Downers Grove, IL— Control engineers need to continue to work with others to ensure their value is recognized, and find a forum to ensure young people get excited about manufacturing. These were two views expressed by Mark Hoske, Control Engineering ’s editor-in-chief, in an interview with Perry Marshall, contributing editor for The Extension newsletter, July-Aug. ’03, from Contemporary Controls (CC) Inc.

In the written interview, Hoske said, “Those involved in automation, controls, and instrumentation in all areas could certainly do a better job of quantifying what it is that they do, beyond traditional engineering measures. That’s for the engineers’ own good and for the good of their organizations.”

In addition, Hoske recommends that control engineers “spend some time teaching basic applied technology to young people. The next generation of manufacturers, before they commit to that as a career choice, need to discover how great it is be involved in creating something of value.”

Hoske invites readers to express views on these or other subjects by e-mailing .

Other topics Marshall and Hoske covered included key automation developments, controls and IT, journalism and the future of information delivery, and what needs to improve with business and industry.
