「エンジニア心得帖」 川上正光

1.エンジニアは人間として立派であること。このためにはたえず良心に磨きをかけていなければならない。
1. Engineer should be honorable as a human. He (She) should always refine his (her) conscience for that.

2. 独創と奉仕を常に心がけねばならない。
2. Engineer should always have the spirit of originality and service.

3.プロ意識に徹すること。自己の立場をはっきり自覚して、学生時代の甘さを払拭すること。学生時代のプロとしては成績がよいことが第一かもしれないが、社会に出てからは、むしろ、創造力、集中力、統率力などが優先する場合が多いと知るべきである。
3. Engineer should be a thoroughgoing professional. He (She) should know his (her) position clearly and wipe away his (her) emotional dependence as a student. Although high grade may be the priority in school days, he (she) should know that usually originality, concentration and leadership proceed to his (her) grade in society.

4.経済的感覚を十分に磨いておくこと。エンジニアも正価販売、月賦販売、リース販売のメリット、デメリットなどを知っているべきである。
4. Engineer should fully cultivate his (her) sense of economy. He (She) should know about merit and demerit of selling on net price, on the installment plan and on lease and so on.

5.多段脱皮型人間であるように心掛けておくこと。ある人《原注1》は優秀なロケットは多段型であって、人間も多段に噴射するようでなければならないというようなことをいった。人の一生は次々にそのポストが変わることを思うと、これも至言であろう。
5. Engineer should try to become a multistage man. Someone (1) told that excellent rocket was a multistage type of rocket, and man should also shoot into multistage. It has been well said because he (she) often changes his (her) post in his (her) life.

6.“信用第一”と心得ねばならない。昔は“50歳までは世の中に信用を蓄えよ、そうすれば50歳以後に金は自然にたまるものだ”といわれていた。今でもこのことはそうちがっていないようだ。“自慢傲慢はもとより忌むべきなれども、自ら恃(たの)み、自ら信ずるはまた人の一徳なり。自ら拙なりと思えば、ますます拙に陥り、自ら功なりと信ずれば、次第に功に進むものなり。”(福沢諭吉の愛児への手紙の一節)これらのことは、信用ある人間の必須条件であると思う。人のためにつくして、報いを求めないこと。“裁きは神にあり。”ほめたり、罰したりは神がしてくれるものである。
6. Engineer should “give priority to credit.” In ancient time it was said, “Stock credit in the world till fifty years old, and then money will naturally accumulate.” It is almost the same now. “Though he (she) should avoid to be boastful and to be arrogant, it is one virtue of him (her) to ask and to believe himself (herself). If he (she) thinks he (she) is poor he (she) will fall into poverty. ” (A chapter of a letter of Mr. Yukichi Fukuzawa to his child) These are the prerequisite conditions to be a reliable person. Do for others without expecting any reward. “Judgment is God’s work.” It’s God who praise and punish.

7.隣人愛と不撓不屈の精神が必要である。
7. Engineer needs love for others and an indomitable spirit.

8.誇りと責任をもとう。
8. Engineer should have pride and responsibility.

9. 常にalternativeを考えるように心がけよう。日本人はとかく、一つの型しか考えない習性をもっている。ところが物事はたいていの場合多様性があるものである。
9. Engineer should always try to think alternative. Japanese people have a habit common to think only one type. There is generally a multiplicity for things.

10. 人の使い方、使われ方エンジニアは人を使ったり、使われたりするのが一般である。このことは実社会においては実に大切なことであるにもかかわらず、学校時代には、大切であるということの注意も。
10. How to handle a man and how to be handled by a man. It is general for an engineer to handle a man and to be handled by a man. Although it is very important in the world, it is unnatural to be warned it in school days. Some years after I had entered a company I was at a loss to handle the section of technology and of test at the same time because I had not prepared mentally. After worrying for long I came to a conclusion as follows: I can do only what no one can do any more under the condition given to me. This was the conclusion then and it has not changed yet.
