Re: Taking credit
Dick Margulis writes that "When a professional engineer (licensed PE) signs a piece of work," the
engineer is taking full responsibility for the work.
Is the engineer's signature on the building itself
where all "users" can see it?
Well, generally, yes, at least on large public or commercial buildings of any size. Architects and engineers are nearly always listed on a large, temporary construction billboard; and they are often included in a prominently displayed cast bronze plaque or incised marble panel in the lobby.
But that has nothing to do with the context in which I made the comment, which was in response to Beth Agnew's remark about standing up for standards and engendering respect, not about when or where to put your name in a document.
