6.Practise reading the word combinations:

in the course of; man gradually learned; constructed roads, plants and irrigated deserts; the steam engine; were put into service; in the mode of production; made his work easier; time for creative work; he had to start them; correct errors; an entirely new era; of all production operations; can relieve; opens up broad horizons; the innumerable spiritual treasures.



In the course of his historic development man gradually learned to use the forces of nature and created our civilization. He managed to change the earth beyond recognition: inhabited vast expanses of wilderness, constructed roads, plants and irrigated deserts. Man is also the creator of the innumerable spiritual treasures of mankind: the wonderful works of art, literature and science. All this became possible thanks to man’s labour, his ability to learn, to understand and explain different phenomena of the material world.

In this progressive advance of man a particularly significant role belongs to energy.

First man learned to use the energy of fire. Many thousand years passed before man learned to use the energy of wind, water and steam, and later — electricity. For producing electricity man discovered and began to use different energy resources: coal, oil, gas, peat, shale, hydropower and nuclear energy.

Not so long ago man invented and put into service the steam engine and steam locomotives. Then he attached the steam engine to looms and to various wheels and so work began to speed up.

The steam engine worked a revolution in the mode of production. The discovery and use of electricity brought about the industrial revolution. A multitude of machines — mechanical,   steam and electrical — began to do man’s difficult and complex work. But man’s brain still controlled the machines doing the work. He started them, guided them and stopped them. He judged their work and corrected errors. His eyes, ears and sense of touch did the observing, and his brain interpreted their information. Then people invented machines and electronic computers which freed the worker not only of the performance of all production operations but even of control.

The machine made a great contribution to the spread of information and the advance of learning. The machine system made it possible to include science in production on a large scale. But it was a long and a hard way. It took the steam engine more than a century to develop its tremendous capacity to the full. The industrial revolution, brought about by the discovery and use of electricity, took some 50—60 years to run its course.

The second half of the 20th century begins an entirely new era — the era of the scientific and technological revolution. It is due to complex mechanization and full automation.

The discovery of the chain reaction of nuclear fission and the reaction of thermonuclear fusion promises mankind a practically unlimited source of energy. Now scientists began to study and use outer space for Man’s benefit.

All this is possible thanks to a wide introduction of scientific discoveries in production.

We live in the epoch when science becomes direct productive force of society. All-round automation determines the social consequences of the scientific-technological progress. Automation will take over man’s manual work and electronic computers will relieve him of much of his mental work, leaving him time for creativity. It obliterates the distinctions between physical and mental labour.

 TEXT  1 B

Engineers in the 21st Century

Translate the text using a dictionary and answer the questions: Do you share this vision of an accomplished 21 st century engineer? What should you do to achieve this aim?

 MOST of us choose engineering as a profession because we like to solve problems and build things. We are the modern-day renaissance men and women, like Edison and DaVinci. These men could invent and create. They were artists who had a broad view of the world and saw possibilities that no one had seen before. There is no reason why we can’t be like them and do even more. We understand more science and have modern tools like computers and lasers to design and build things, plus we can use information technology to gather data when we have knowledge gaps. The point is that, once we have a clear picture of who we want to be, now more than ever before, that vision is obtainable, and that vision becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy if we choose to act on it. Certainly, if we think we cannot do it, we won’t.

  Successful engineers are people who take an early interest in science and engineering. They have alert minds and a natural curiosity for everything around them. They do things for the love of it, not simply for monetary rewards, but for the pride and personal satisfaction that comes with doing something particularly well. Over time, they develop a clear intuition for excellence that drives them to produce quality in whatever they do. They mix well in society because they also take an interest in people and the dynamics of human interaction. Personally, they are self-confident but not ego-driven and have respect for other human beings. With the broad knowledge base they build over time, they can come up with fantastic ideas for solving just about any kind of problem, and they are able to build marvelous things or great companies by working with other people. The success that naturally goes with all that also makes them highly respected in society. That’s the kind of successful individual we can be! And, we can have a profound impact on our community at large.

So what do you do when you’re just starting out?                                                         

  •  Develop an interest in learning. Once you become curious about a subject, learning comes        naturally. With an attitude of learning, everyone and everything can be your teacher

      if you let them. People develop incredible insights about their interests and passions, and    most are willing to share what they know. You can pick up what they’ve learned over a lifetime just by listening.

  •  Build a strong foundation in basic science as well as a broad range of technologies to allow you to come up with creative solutions to problems. This breadth of knowledge helps you become aware of what you don’t know and gives you a sense of where to look for solutions.
  •  Pick one particular subject area in which to specialize. A Ph.D. dissertation is an invaluable vehicle for learning how to be thorough. The particular topic is not so important because once you know how to dig deeply you can do so quickly on any subject that interests you.
  •  Put a high value on your time, and only take on projects for which you have passion. Being satisfied with “It’s just a job” robs you of the real opportunities. Work hard and develop a habit of completing whatever you do. What you learn in solving specific technical or people problems often enables you to tackle even bigger projects.
  •  Do explicit long-range planning. Decide on what you want to accomplish in life, and look at the trends in your particular area of interest to decide what you need to do to get there. Modify your plans periodically as you gather new information. You are more likely to be your own master and less likely to be reactive to other people’s agenda.
  •  Pay attention to attitude and self-awareness early on. Success is naturally optimized when you make the best use of available resources. Since уou are your own most valuable resource, you’ll need to understand how you operate in order to apply yourself most effectively. An objective understanding of your own strengths and weaknesses will give you the self-confidence to take on the right project and bring in people with the needed skills that you do not possess.
  •  Practice building strong relationships because you need other people to help you succeed. Study subjects in liberal arts to understand what makes people tick. As you develop an understanding and appreciation for what other people do, you will naturally respect them as individuals. Respect begets respect because reciprocity is the basis of human relationships. Be helpful to people and you’ll get plenty in return over time.
