About this video

Engineering is merely a tool that’s only useful in the hands of a person with vision.

So says Richard K. Miller, the first — and only — president of the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering, has spent his career educating what he calls “engineering innovators.” He says, “an engineer is a person who envisions what has never been and does what it takes to make it happen. If you don’t have vision, and you don’t want to make change, you’re not really an engineer — you’re an applied scientist.”
