I’ve been an Engineer for over 40 years. Wow, has it been that long? It’s what I do and it’s what I’ve done throughout my adult life. So I guess I’ve gotten to that point where I just take it for granted. But recently I watched a documentary that brought it all back to me… all the excitement and rush of what lured me to this challenging and rewarding profession in the first place.
But the world has changed since the heady days of the Space Race, back when I was young and engineering was cool. And this made me wonder what, if anything, lures today’s young people to a career in engineering. In fact, do they even know what engineering is? I have some thoughts on that.
