While engineering has historically provided tools necessary for defending our country and freedom throughout the world, is it also possible that engineers have a central role in the promotion of peace,a peace that might make such war unnecessary? That is, can engineers use their education and skills to proactively encourage peace in our world to practice peace engineering? Is the accumulation of technical skill enough for engineers to be effective in practicing peace engineering, or do they need social, political, communication, ethical, and legal skills as well? How can engineering educators respond to the challenges of preparing engineers to practice peace engineering? Finally, what opportunities are there for engineers wanting to work proactively in the promotion of peace? This book is a compilation of papers devoted to defining and promoting peace engineering, originating at a conference held at Bucknell University.
