Albert Einstein once said “Scientists investigate that which already is; Engineers create that which has never been.” Engineers are responsible for solving global, environmental, and everyday problems. Creative problem solving is just one way that makes every day different in the life of an engineer. One example is that engineers get to work within a variety of different industries helping others solve whatever challenges they are currently facing. The world of engineering is constantly evolving as we continue to encounter new problems every single day.
The world of engineering is so diverse, with hundreds of different types, it’s easy to see why engineering is crucial to our everyday lives. Fields in engineering range from aerospace, chemical, building, environmental, forestry, industrial, mining, software and petroleum, just to name a few. It’s easy to take our everyday lives for granted but when you take a step back and think about how engineering went into all the things we use every single day you can see just how important it is!
IBM did a study that found that companies lose 10% to 30% of employees that are not involved in development programs. This study also showed that after three years the company loses up to 41% of its staff and just continues to lose valuable employees, that could be great assets to their team.
