Scientific and engineering knowledge doubles every 10 years. This geometric growth rate has been reflected in an accelerating rate of introduction and adoption of technology. Product cycles continue to decrease and each cycle delivers more functional and often less expensive versions of existing products. The idea that a student learns all that he or she needs to know in a four year engineering program is just not true and never was. Not even the “fundamental” are fixed, and new information has to enter the engineer’s life. Engineers must accept responsibility for their own continual reeducation, and engineering schools are going to have to prepare engineers to do so by teaching them how to learn. This is also true for young engineers the engineering workforce, which is also changing at an increasing rate.
They will find a significant differences between the missions of academia and the new job’s environment. Engineers need to understand that to be successful in this new and different environment, he or she will need to learn many more new aspects of engineering. This article focuses on these vital subjects needed by a young engineer to succeed in their profession.
