World of Engineering
Engineers and engineering technologists are problem solvers. These men and women apply what we know from math and science to solve the complex challenges of the 21st century. Demand exists and is expected to grow over the next 25 years. Already, there are more jobs for skilled individuals than there are people trained to fill them.
