Auckland University Engineering school

Went to Auckland University where the water engineer spent 10 years of his life there as a student, and a further many years as a staff.

This reflection and the real McCoy makes me think of the controversial issue here.

Claims the convicted fraudster who oversaw the construction of Christchurch's doomed CTV building stole the identity of a British engineer and faked his engineering degree have been upheld after an investigation.
Gerald Morton Shirtcliff, aka William Anthony Fisher, is already facing an investigation by New Zealand police.
Now, an internal probe by professional engineering body Engineers Australia has found that the Brisbane-based Shirtcliff falsely assumed the identity, including a University of Sheffield engineering degree, of former colleague William Anthony Fisher.
The matter will be looked at by the Australian Federal Police.
Engineers Australia has also cancelled Shirtcliff's membership.
"As soon as the allegations surfaced, Engineers Australia commenced an internal investigation," said chief executive officer Stephen Durkin.
"This investigation has provided evidence to suggest this member had misrepresented his engineering qualifications.''

This is both a fascinating fraud story and a great reflection.

Pretty reflections!

Great reflection. And if he's convicted of fraud, he should be tried for murder since he oversaw the construction of a building that collapsed!

Great post! Engineering has been one of the most exciting fields to enter for several decades now. Perhaps more than any other industry, field or time in history, during this time in computer hardware engineering there has been more advancement and evolution than ever before or anywhere else.
