The Rice Global E & C Forum is the only organization focused solely on the discussion and study of problems and opportunities facing the contracting side of the E & C industry. The Rice Global E&C Forum (RGF) has a vision to be the premier venue for discussion of critical issues impacting the future of the global E & C industry.
The mission of the RGF Council is to accomplish its vision through collaboration with Rice University, by conducting an Annual Forum and holding monthly roundtable meetings within a neutral environment.

“Are You a Professional or Just an Engineer?”
This presentation discusses the actions required by an engineer to be truly a “professional” as opposed to an individual who responds to “givens,” “deliverables” and “time allotted.” Too often some engineers define their role as merely applying the science and knowledge of engineering to defined tasks. Is that all there is to being a “professional” or are their additional standards that must be met to distinguish between professional behavior and just plain good engineering? If so what are these standards and how do you as an individual stack up against them? You may be surprised and find out that you have not always acted as the professional you think you are.
Speaker: Kenneth E. Arnold, P.E., Senior Technical Advisor, WorleyParsons and Consultant
