Engineers are just too reticent.
Consider the airtime given to actors/actresses to dissect their portrayal of a character, or given to chefs to go into raptures about how they chop vegetables or add herbs.
By contrast engineers are disinclined to express the passion that goes into their work and sadly only command airtime when there is a disaster.
All the while Engineering companies and Institutions do themselves no favours by focusing on the facts, figures and data of the profession when trying to attract the next generation. When you are a teenager facts are not inspiring.
