Why Engineering?

There is currently a shortage of qualified technicians and engineers for all of the jobs available in industry. We have an aging workforce that has reached or is reaching retirement and our economy needs us to get back to making things again. This will require a new generation of qualified people. Engineering is a great profession that offers many benefits and a life-long opportunity.
