Age discrimination, salary reduction, unstable carreers! Not the best carreer to get into at the moment in the U.S, & Europe??? So why should anyone consider entering the field, what is so great about it?
Things went way overboard for awhile. Everyone realized that when all the consulting companies were charging $250 per hour for services that the party was going to be over soon. The pendulum swings. The million dollar question in my mind is what are the employment prospects of a grad in software engineering compared to the other engineering grads?
Hi, Based on the newly hire, I think Electrical and Mechanical are top picks; electrical with minor electronics is the second pick; all engineers with quality minor are the third pick. Software engineer do not have much choice beside working for defense related companies. I am disregarded all the exception cases because they are individuals, individual do have an individual-way to approach life. Regards, MCao
I had to option to do a degree in Digital systems engineering with german - including a year in german so that I would be a qualified engineer in germany too - but I studied maths instead and went into IT!!! do I regret that now!!!

At least in the US, lately placement situation of hardware(electrical) engineers is anything but pitiful. So, it depends on each situation. I am sure it is not safe to bet on particular field, since it can saturate real fast. Dan.
Hi, Yes, I agree on the safe bet. I hope kids in Univ not trampling on each others to switch careers everytime they see/hear something down the pipe. But if kids in Univ not realize they have to compete with the world when they get out, then I fault their professors. Big Time. Regards, MCao
