Engineers are stewards of humankind. Engineers are called to serve, to protect, to explore, and to wonder about people, environment, universe.

The heart of engineering beats because of those we serve. Caring, inquisitive, and risk-taking engineers respond to the needs of all humankind.

We respond to the voices of the injured who need devices to gain mobility, to improve sight, and to restore hearing. Engineers want to develop new tools to impact biological research, personalized medicine to help those who are sick, and a system of tools to collect patient's medical data.

Engineers need to find ways to protect our planet and restore balance to the nitrogen cycle, capture and safely store carbon dioxide, and develop economical solar energy and safe and reliable fusion energy. We are called to continue to find new ways to provide the poor access to clean water and light to their homes.

We ponder what's beyond the universe, and when we look to the planets, we wonder how to extend human life beyond Earth. Engineers seek to advance technology and communication, but are keenly aware of the risks to our country if we don't improve cyberspace security.

We are called to serve, to protect, to explore, and to wonder. While at the university, we are engineers in training, challenged to think beyond what we know, and be open to answers yet discovered. This team of first year engineering students from Purdue University designed and developed this video, Engineering: Stewardship of Humankind, as a submission for NAE's "Engineering for You" video contest, but also with the goal to encourage younger students to consider pursuing engineering.
