We are living in a digital age. Humans have come a long way since the industrial revolution where a plethora of manufacturing processes such as iron production, the usage of steam power and machine tools were unveiled to the world. Human beings are naturally curious and are always striving to find solutions to improve the current standard of living.
There have been incredible advancements in technology and breakthroughs in engineering processes over the last few decades. In the trucking industry, we have seen the implementation of electronic logging devices (ELDS) that help determine routes for truck drivers. There has also been an enormous spike in the number of fleet maintenance facilities that are relying on column lifts to suspend heavy-duty vehicles in the air.
The world always needs more engineers and technicians to continue to evolve. Here are some reasons why you should consider a career in engineering or technology!
The Demand Is Higher Than Ever
By pursuing a career in engineering or technology, you are opening the door to a variety of opportunities for yourself. Your skills set can be applied to many different industries like hi-tech manufacturing, industrial design, computer programming, and software. Unlike many other careers, you are not necessarily limited in what you can achieve in your career; as you can always branch out to find your own personal niche. According to the World Economic Forum, in 2016 United States has the third most STEM graduates in the world with 568,000. The U.S only trails China (4.7 million) and India (2.6 million).
You Make A Difference
Many people do not have any feelings of fulfillment through their careers. They go to work day-in and day-out and do not feel like they are making a difference. It is an incredibly rewarding feeling to be able to look at the some of the projects you had a part in creating. SLEC technicians get to see their work being utilized by customers every single day.
