International Systems Engineer Day is celebrated around the world on November 25th. The holiday is dedicated to the most important specialists in the world – they make our life more comfortable and easier. We deal with the things that a systems programmer is responsible for on a daily basis and we don’t even realize it. We remember them only when there are breakdowns – it’s sad. The purpose of the holiday is simple: to tell the population about the importance of the work of the masters.
The holiday arose quite recently: it was founded by the creators of the site www.systemsengineerday.com. The resource describes the importance of the profession and carries a lot of useful information. Be sure to study it. Activists know exactly what kind of daily work engineers do, so they decided to thank them for it, attracting society. It is noteworthy that systems engineers appeared in 1940, and professional courses appeared 10 years later.
Engineering arose on the same day when a person needed to transform the world around him, make it comfortable, create devices suitable for life. The simplest mechanisms came from afar – the wheel, the lever. The first attempt to classify engineering belongs to Vitruvius and his book Ten Books on Architecture. Here he talks about the importance of inventions, schematics, practical experience.
Did you know that:
- systems engineering was successfully implemented during the Second World War. It was used by all parties to the conflict to improve many parameters;
- the discipline is not considered accessible to everyone: to study it, you need good reasons or an unprecedented interest;
- specialists are aware of the principles of operation of systems and move them for the better.
