Our drinking game. You can’t have a beer with an engineer without having a drinking game!! Anytime Dom says “ummm” drink up!
Dominic De Gioia is a Director of EWFW, a multi-disciplinary engineering firm located in Sydney, Brisbane & Wollongong. He is a degree qualified engineer and has been in the industry for almost 20 years.
He got into engineering wanting to design and build cars. It only took him 3 lectures to learn that not only was he on the wrong path, he was in the wrong country! He persevered and has worked on some amazing projects, including a PPP project for the Department of Defence.
Hot Topic discussion
The race to the bottom. The industry is constantly under-valuing itself when compared to other consulting professions.
There are less and less Building Services engineers coming into the industry.
During this podcast, you will reflect on:
Being an engineer allows you to leave behind something tangible. A legacy for the betterment of society as a whole.
People outside the industry not understanding or appreciating how engineers can save a client money in the long term
The future of engineering is moving more towards a consulting model. While outsourcing of design will increase, the need for specialisation will become more obvious.
