In 1159, John of Salisbury (c. 1120 - 25 October 1180) wrote in his Metalogicon: "Bernard of Chartres used to say that we are like dwarfs on the shoulders of giants, so that we can see more than they, and things at a greater distance, not by virtue of any sharpness of sight on our part, or any physical distinction, but because we are carried high and raised up by their giant size." The growth and success of Industrial Engineering in Southern Africa over the past 50 years, is the direct result of the commitment of the giants who have preceded those who now aspire to follow in their footsteps.
