From US News, March 22 2012.
Great news! Engineers are in demand and finding jobs across the value chain.
So, for those middle/high school students undecided on careers, this is a good reason why to study engineering…. In addition to the fact that human resources in engineering (& science) are critical foundations for building and sustaining knowledge-base economies and solving problems at the local, national and global levels, engineers try to make a better world for everybody. Engineering, GO FOR IT!
