oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Viewpoint The Green Paper on Science and Technology
The Department of Arts, Culture, Science and Technology recently published its Green Paper on Science and Technology, Preparing for the 21st Century, and the acknowledgement of the important role of science, engineering and technology (SET) by the present government is welcomed. This recognition of SET was long advocated by SAICE under the previous government. The Green Paper recognises that scientists, engineers and technologists have time and again demonstrated their capacity to generate new and better ways of doing things, thereby contributing to higher standards of living, a better quality of life, and economic growth - all of which are in fact associated with the very nature of civil engineering.
