Engineering as a ‘cleverness’ paradigm is WOW!

While this engineer’s WOW is no where low,
Be it at house, indoors, or in the meadow,
In health care, shopfloor, a road, or their shadows,
At good times you make the earth systems to bow!
Though your each action or word deserves a Kudo!

Many after effects may need be humbled somehow?
Viz. Engineering – you gave man the Arms!

There are two potent questions in my grey mind.

(i) Though in my 40 years of teaching no dumb (lacking the power of speech Ref: dictionary.reference.com/browse/dumb) student applied for admission to engineering. If it were true, should I have had denied him/her admission?). I hope not.. on the contrary the student shall get preference- because of handicap quota.

(ii) What would have happened if I had not wasted my precious years learning German, when I was not to be exposed to advanced literature ( technical or other) right one at right time

The former question has a rider attached. because the dumb has a guised meaning too as it may… [simplify or reduce the intellectual content of something so as to make it accessible to a larger number of people.] In that case the situation is twinned to negative side.

My focus in this discussion is on the 1st problem. Some help is solicited?

Let me recall a real life example:
We had called a professional engineer (from industry) to conduct oral examination over minor projects developed by students
