Quote: “Professionally, I think the big adjustment for me is how the profession is viewed in this country versus Europe: It’s totally different. I always use the analogy that in Spanish, the word ‘ingeniero’ comes from the root ‘ingenuity.’ The word ‘engineer’ in English comes from ‘engine.’ That tells you a little bit about the different perceptions of this profession.”
