Abstract

A question posted to MIT allumni on Linkedin attracted responses by 371 engineers about what their engineering education lacked. Part of that data presented a crowd-sourced new theory of sustainable systems, presented in this paper---showing design for surviving, and design for imposing being later used as opportunities for design for sustainability. Survivable systems, imposable systems are defined, and ways to empower engineers to equal or surpass the power of MBA managers later in their careers, suggested by the 371 respondents are presented.

Keywords: MANAGING BY DESIGN; DESIGN FOR SUSTAINABILITY; DESIGN FOR SURVIVAL; DESIGN FOR IMPOSITION
