PaulPeercy.gif[As] Paul S. Peercy, dean of engineering at the University of Wisconsin and chair of the Engineering Dean?s Council at the American Society for Engineering Education put it:

“I used to say, ‘look around, everything except the plants are engineered.? Now I say, ‘look around, everything and some of the plants are engineered.'”
